Will that piece of gear fit your vehicle?
We've climbed into thousands of vehicles to find out.
Whatever your level of experience, we can help with your installation — and save you even more money. Here's how:
When you buy a receiver or speakers from us, we'll send you a set of installation instructions, such as our detailed, illustrated MasterSheets, which we create from our own meticulous research. Instructions are available for most vehicles.
Buy a car stereo from us, and you'll save up to $50 on the installation gear package you need, depending on the car you drive and the stereo you buy – in many cases, you’ll get the package free. Installation gear available for most vehicles.
When you buy a set of speakers from us, we'll make sure you get the wiring harnesses and mounting brackets you need for your vehicle. They're 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.
When you select your vehicle on our site, you'll be able to shop from filtered lists of the products, such as receivers and speakers, that we know fit or work with your vehicle. You'll also be able to find more ”universal“ products, like amplifiers and subwoofers, that can be installed in just about any vehicle.
Just about every car on the road these days features a factory stereo. To help you find compatible aftermarket replacements, we've disassembled the dashes and door panels of tens of thousands of vehicles, measured the spaces where these factory stereos and speakers fit, and loaded our findings into our massive fit database. Our system then compares these measurements to the dimensions of a given receiver or speaker to determine of the product will fit in the factory location.
Sometimes we say that a product works with your vehicle. This means that it doesn't necessarily fit in a factory location, but that it's designed to be compatible with your vehicle's electronics or interior design. Compatible products include products like adapters (for Bluetooth or smartphone control, for example) that plug into your vehicle's stereo wiring harness and device holders mounts in a specific spot on the dash.
We also carry a wide range of products that are designed to work exclusively with specific vehicles. See below to learn more.
At Crutchfield, we know that if you're going to install your own stereo, you'll need two things: to know that the one you're interested in fits in your car, and to get the installation parts and instructions that make the job easier and give you professional results. Unless, of course, you're an experienced installer and are doing a fully custom job, in which case, we'd like you to share the results with us!
When you shop with us, you'll see:
With most orders, you'll also get a set of vehicle-specific instructions, such as our exclusive MasterSheets, which offer step-by-step guidance and detailed illustrations or photos, created from the info gathered by our vehicle research team. They're available for thousands of vehicles.
A breakdown of speakers available for specific locations in your car.
These can include locations that don't have factory speakers, but can be adapted with certain mounting adapters, such as pods that let you mount speakers in your kick panels.
We won't list a given location if no speaker option is available for it. When you use Outfit My Carsm, you'll see the kinds of essential factory stereo and speaker information our research team gathers.
Many manufacturers have designed products that work directly with specific vehicles. These include:
Many car A/V products we describe as “universal,” in that there aren't dedicated factory locations for them. With many of these products, you'll have to check your vehicle for available space, and carefully plan your installation in advance. The most common include:
We have a library of articles and videos that cover a range of DIY topics.
