    A good upgrade from my factory stereo that had no Bluetooth. The sound isn't perfect when on a phone call, you have to speak loud and clearly. Not all sound settings work with every song, I find myself changing it often to adjust the sound.

    Pros: Bluetooth, phone calls, phone charging port, sleek flush look.

    Cons: Sound quality off for different songs, when on call the other person may not hear you clearly, buttons are loud when pressing.

    Works great in my 03 Silverado. Perfect fit. Will say they should say "A few wires will be connected you will have to connect the rest" the harness made it sound like all I was going To have to do was plug and play. Besides that totally satisfied with the product and help from Crutchfield

    Pros: Better and louder sound quality than stock radio BLUETOOTH WORKS GREAT NO DRONE SOUND

    Cons: Pretty cheap feeling

    Good budget stereo. Like the color options. Don't like that you can't keep the clock displayed, can only hit clock button and it shows for a couple seconds. Overall I am satisfied with my purchase.

    Pros: Budget friendly, sounds good

    Cons: Pretty basic

    Verified customer (What's this?)

    Works well, sounds good, and has not issues connecting viva Bluetooth to my phone. The two major issues I have are, first the lights on the radio are too bright, and district from driving. Secondly, I have set the clock on it several times, and as soon as I turn my truck off, it resets the clock, all other settings are fine.

    Pros: Bluetooth Sounds good

    Cons: Lights are too bright Does not keep time

    Buy only if you want a disco in your car...

    Arthur from Simpsonville, SC on 6/23/2019

    2007 Ford Escape

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Well, the first thing you should be aware of is that the backlighting on the panel switches color about every 10 sec. Amber, Blue, Green, Red... every 10 sec. That would have been a deal breaker for me, if I'd had known. Maybe another review mentions it, but the product description doesn't, so be forewarned. I installed into my daughter's 2007 Escape. Barely fits. The wiring harness they include for free doesn't fit the radio, but the one from the manufacturer does work. I'd already whittled the opening a bit for a previous install that failed after 2 years (not this model). But the side mounting brackets that come with the radio will block the HVAC vents, so can't use them. The freebie mounting brackets don't align with the screw holes in the radio, so I only got one screw in each side. But with the mounting brackets installed I couldn't use the radio's provided bezel, so the front looks a little sloppy. With the mounting behind me, the unit's sound quality is not bad, especially for the price. Functionality seems like it's decent - easy to set preferences and store stations. Would I buy it again? No, like I said, the light show is a deal breaker.

    Pros:

    Cons:

    2009 Kia Sportage

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Not satisfied with this unit. It was inexpensive, but works poorly. Reception on FM stations is horrible (reinstalling the factory radio, and stations work perfectly). On this model, FM sounds like its coming from a cardboard box 900 miles away. Very very difficult to work the press, or press-and-hold style menu to perform functions like pairing a telephone to play pandora, etc. USB plug will charge, but won't play music like other models do.

    Pros: It's cheap.

    Cons: It's "cheap".

    I bought this last year during the holidays. Finally got around to installing it today. The adapter brackets do not fit my car and the unit does not work. It powers up but no sound comes out. Very frustrating. $$ down the tubes.

    Pros: Has a great look to it.

    Cons: So far, everything is a con.

    Great stereo, easy install. Good features. Lighting is difficult to see in the sun but I have had that experience with most stereos. Purchased two of these and the one that is placed farther down on the dash is easier to see.

    Pros: Easy controls, especially bluetooth. This stereo is not complicated.

    Cons: None so far.

    You get what you pay for.. The owners manual says there is a way to adjust the bass and treble, but it is not on my unit for sure. Without this, your at the mercy of pretty below average sound. User unfriendly to say the least with searching for radio stations and getting the clock to stay set. Is what it is.

    Pros: It's a radio

    Cons: Not user friendly

    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Easy to install in a 2007 Honda Odyssey with the Crutchfield wiring harness. My iPhone 6 connects to it everytime and the controls on the unit work with the iPhone as expected. The steering wheel controls don't work, but don't know if this is a wiring harness limit or not. Wished the light dimmed at night as it is very bright (red is good at night, but useless in daylight). Also, I wished the Mute button would pause the playback when streaming, esp audiobooks and podcasts. (I have not used it for phone calls.) With all that said, it does everything I really need it to and at a low price.

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    First off, I am 56 and it has been a long, long time since I have installed a stereo. I have worked with Crutchfield in the past, but I have not bought a whole stereo setup from them. If ever I do a stereo setup again, I will buy from Crutchfield. My 17 old son wanted a new car intially. I bought him a 01 Century in Dec. '17. I said if you want a new car YOU need to buy it this time. Well, needless to say, he wasn't up for that, so he said if he can upgrade the stereo, he wouldn't mind keeping the car. I bought this Boss receiver and 4 Pioneer speakers for him. This old crate of a Buick is super easy to install a new setup in. I really like the idea of the speaker harnesses and the plug and play harness for the receiver. Life couldn't be easier with this setup. What is nice is the fit of the receiver in the dash is great and the Pioneer speakers fit under the factory grilles. Everything looks right!! So this is the boy's early birthday present and that is all he is getting from me :-). Now he has to hit up mom and girlfriend for anything else!!

    Pros: Inexpensive gear, great sound. It is awesome that I paid this price. 35 years ago I paid something similar for a mediocre setup and I had to cut and splice everything together, this setup has everything I need.

    Cons: I cannot say that I have any cons.

    Functions as what you would get from a radio below $100. FM and Bluetooth function without issue. AM radio is inconsistent (artifact present from other stations). Color changing LEDs cannot be turned off, it continues cycling. During daytime driving, unable to view display due to dimness of certain colors.

    Simple to install and looks goods. lots of adjust-ability for the price. The only downside so far is that I have not found a setting that defaults to the clock. Anytime I want to know what time it is I have to push the clock button. Love Crutchfield's options and kits to make the installation easy.

    This is a great radio for the money, but I will Warn you, you can not fine tune the EQ. It just fines you pressed options

    All I wanted and needed was am/fm radio and Bluetooth connectivity, and this unit provides that. I had it professionally installed by a radio shop here, and it doing everything I expected of it. Simple to use and easy to read. Mine does not hold the time, but I think that may be the 1998 F150 rather than the unit.

    I actually give it a zero since it doesn't work. Had this radio installed today. It didn't even work. The tech said this is a common problem with Boss radios. Would have been nice to know before spending $100 to have it installed just to have it taken back out. Would also have been nice to know that I didn't need all the wires that were suggested I buy. It's unfortunate to buy your husband something as a gift and see his disappointment when it doesn't even work.

    Pros: None

    2005 Honda CRV EX

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    In short: it's a serviceable radio with some minor annoying quirks. First the good parts: all of the functions work just fine, with no problems (that I've found so far). The display is plenty bright, even in full sun. Radio tunes and seeks quickly. Fit nicely as a replacement in my '05 Honda CR-V. It's annoying that the clock does not stay on after hitting the "Clock" button (it returns to the tuner display). It's also annoying that the clock does not display when the unit is off. And turning off the unit requires a push-and-hold gesture (instead of a simple tap). The internal wiring appears to be poorly shielded, as there is a quiet squealing sound that varies in pitch with the engine speed.

    Pros: Good value for the money

    Cons: Minor UI quirks

    Purchased this for sons first car to replace factory head unit. Was a little skeptical on the low price point so showed him 3 radios and let him choose. He liked this the best. Got directions for install and seemed all was covered. took about an hour(but that is because I forgot to plug the antenna into new radio so had to take back apart). Works good. Some colors of LED are hard to see during the day but for the most part it is nice and was easy. Colors change or pick a single color. Hooked is phone up to Bluetooth and his music started playing. Simple process, nice radio, all needed harness and wires included(get the wiring harness upgrade and save yourself the time of splicing and crimping.

    Pros: Nice look, easy to install and setup color, clock. etc...

    Cons: A couple colors of the LED are hard to see during the day but still visible display and once connected to phone via BT have to change the source to phone mode for sound to come thru(but not hard to figure out)

    Poor audio 2005 Toyota Prius I bought this to replace a failing factory J.B.L. Am/Fm,Cd,Cassette head unit. since i only use Am/FM and the JBL amp does the rest. so i got a basic receiver. (Mistake) the sound is Terrible!!!!! Also It has strange high pitch wining and hissing noises!!! I have a single speaker clock radio from the 70's that sounds better. not sure what I'm going to do send this back and up grade to a better head unit or send the factory one out for repair.

    Pros: Inexpensive, cute

    Really good receiver for the money. Initially could not get sound but Crutchfield's support really helped me figure out the wiring and promptly got sound! I like the nice big round button and the Source button (most used) is right near top left closer to driver. Overall, good receiver and installation on Silverado pickup was fairly easy with the instructions/pictures provided. Thanks!

    Pros: Bluetooth, USB and Aux options.

    Cons: Only thing I did not like (maybe haven't figured out) is how to keep the Clock displaying instead of the Source.

    The order process was very smooth and the shipping was on time. The customer service tech was very friendly and knowledgeable. The ReadyHarness service was great, it saved me some time. I do like the features the receiver has and its big display. At first I thought I had received a receiver with a faulty USB port but it turns out that the brand of flash drive I was trying to use was the problem. After purchasing another brand drive all is well. The sensitivity of the radio's signal reception seems to be somewhat inadequate however. AM or FM radio stations only 20 miles away wont tune in or if they do they have very poor signal quality.

    Pros: Big display easy to read, Feature layout easy to use, Great tech support.

    Cons: AM/FM radio sensitivity poor, instructions do not mention that the flash drive must be formatted in FAT32 and can not be larger than 32GB.

    I went to a 1998 stock stereo that had a just dead tape player to this. I can play my music through my phone again and oh, how the bass really sings now. Wish I know how to jeep the screen on the clock though.

    Pros: RGB lighting, aux input, bluetooth, usb port (though I don't use it, it's nice to have), increased speaker performance vs a stock stereo

    Cons: Knob isn't quite centered, idk how to keep the screen on the clock when I have aux plugged it (it goes back to aux src), can't turn off lighting at night.

    The radio comes with a dash kit that is very easy to install and if I'm not mistaken it also come with a harness.
    [ Cobbey Connor  Apr 24, 2019 ]

    Yes. You will need the wiring harness. And I was able to install mine without the dash kit but it looked bad. You probably want the dash kit too

    There are preamp outs, so if the amp has a crossover or the sub is active and has a built in amp/crossover in it then yes.

    You will be Able to control the subwoofers to an extent but if you get a powered subwoofer then you can just get the little knob that truely controls it

    They should have something on the crutchfield website that says if it fits your vehicle. Mine personally did not quite fit the center piece of my crown Victoria so I had to do some additional cutting to get it to fit. Best of luck!
    [ Connor  Jan 18, 2019 ]
    A
    Not sure you will have to check their website. However I would not recommend this vehicle for that car. I own a 2011 Chevrolet Impala with the Bose sound system. Spend a couple extra dollars and get a better radio. This radio is more generic and does what it is supposed to do but in no way is it a high-end radio.
