By far the best stereos, customer service, resources, and install kits for the money. No reason for anyone who can use a screwdriver and follow directions to pay someone else to install a new stereo.
- Mike E.,Crutchfield customer
Installing car stereo gear yourself is a satisfying experience. It saves you money, as you won't have to pay someone to do it, and most customers feel a great sense of accomplishment that makes the effort worth it. You might even find that it's not as hard as you'd expected.
Whatever your level of experience, we can help with your installation — and save you even more money. Here's how:
Buy a receiver or speakers from us, and we'll send you a set of vehicle-specific instructions – such as our MasterSheets™, which offer detailed, illustrated installation instructions created from our own meticulous research. Instructions are available for most vehicles.
Buy a car receiver priced $119.99 and up, and we'll include basic installation accessories for free. If your car requires special adapters, you'll get them at up to 50% off when you buy any receiver. Installation accessories are available for most vehicles.
When you buy a set of speakers from us, we'll send you free wiring harnesses and mounting brackets for your vehicle. These harnesses and brackets are required and available for most vehicles.
Our Virginia-based support specialists will take the time to talk to you through installation snags, troubleshooting, or everyday use. And you can call them toll-free 7 days a week, for the life of everything you buy from us.
We have a library of articles and videos that cover a range of DIY topics.View related Research
