Should have been metal

Ben from Paducah, KY on 3/18/2019

1996 Chevrolet Corvette

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

Easy to use, couldn't install my new double DIN Pioneer AVH-2440NEX in my 96 Corvette without it. I only needed the side brackets. It took a bit of trial and error to get the brackets mounted in the optimal location, and then it was perfect! I would have preferred it to be made of metal instead of plastic, but it got the job done without any issues.

Pros: It was a necessary bracket that got the head unit installed easily.

Cons: Made of plastic? Are they kidding? I hope it doesn't become brittle over time.

Crutchfield customer from Magnolia, TX on 1/16/2019

1990 Chevrolet Corvette

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

Installation was easy, but configuration for setback and angle are very tedious and required many installations/removals to get this correct on both a Pioneer AVH-2440NEX and AVH-1440NEX. It's a necessity to install these units in a 1990 Corvette ZR-1, but required some modifications (depth of slots for dash screws).

Pros: Only real option available to install after market double DIN head unit in a C4 Corvette.

Cons: Tedious to get the setback and angle of the head unit correct.

The brackets allowed for the perfect installation of my Kenwood double DIN radio. Didn't need the small tray.

Pros: Made the installation look factory.

Cons: Kind of a waste to not use the tray that was included,

Great quality, but to install a new double din receiver in my 92 Corvette, I only needed the two plastic side mounting plates. And....... be prepared to remember all those curse words you've forgotten when trying to make a double din receiver fit into a 92 Vette........ PITA!!!!! I had to do a lot of modification.

I only needed to use the side mounting brackets on my 1996 Corvette to install the Pioneer AVH-2440NEX. The plastic brackets are kind of flimsy, I expected a bit better quality but it did fit ok.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Used to install a 2 din radio in a 1990 Corvette. Brackets were flimsy and directions were not vehicle specific. Understandable for generic part. Took several attempts to get installed correctly. Once complete it does hold the radio in place well.

Pros: Holds radio in place

Cons: Flimsy, plastic, no vehicle specific directions

Good Product

I used this to replace the factory Bose unit in my 1994 Corvette. It works great but it took a couple of tries to get all of the screws lined up. You will still need to cut the factory mount behind the Bose unit. There's not a lot of space in there so if you can live without a CD player, the newer Media units make this job easier.

Pros: Good Cost, Looks Great

Cons: Weak Instructions, difficult to align

The kit itself was very good; good quality and matched up as original stock brackets.

Pros: A great stock like kit.

Cons: The instructions were so-so, in that it took a bit to get alignment correct, etc. I would have gone 5 stars if the instructions had a bit more detail.

I ordered this to install a sony radio I had previous purchased for my '92 corvette. This made installation very easy and in no time at all I was finished.My radio is a single din so I had to use the storage compartment tray. This is going to be very handy for storing cds.This was a small investment for all the benifits it offers. I highly recommend using this install kit.

Pros: Easy of installation of radio.

Cons: None

92 vette - Fought getting the stereo-bin aligned to fit my bezel and into the opening.. Then realized the bin face plate wasn't sitting where it needed to be and had to use a little force to get it seated correctly. Then aligning everything for the install was major easy

Pros: Makes a nice clean fit for an aftermarket stereo

Cons: Faceplate to bin could fit a little easier

Glad it all came together with the receiver. oonly thing didn't get was the wiring tie in as the power unit was behind the passenger seat. Had purchased it previously for another radio so no issues.

Pros: This kit provides for a perfect fit... no cutting or trimming necessary. Now I have a spot for extra stuff, cd,s etc.

Simple and straightforward

Chrism from Houston, TX on 9/6/2011

1996 Chevrolet Corvette

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

With this kit, the mounting of my new Pioneer double-DIN unit was simple and straightforward. I installed the head unit into a '96 Corvette in the stock double- DIN space, and the mounting brackets in this kit fit perfectly. The instructions included with this kit were exactly correct also. It was refreshing to find such correct instructions in this day and age of half-baked documentation. My only slight concern about the kit is that the brackets are plastic, and my preference would be metal brackets for a bit more sturdiness.

Fits well, but no more DIN quick release

Rod from Raleigh, NC on 6/9/2010

1991 Chevrolet Corvette

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

The kit worked well. I wish the storage bin didn't have holes in it. If you put something small into the bin after installation, it might end up inside your dash. Also, the radio must be mounted directly to the brackets without the use of the DIN sleeve. That means the radio cannot be quick-released from the dash if it needs to come out for any reason.

Pros:

Cons:

Adequate installation kit, the interface between box and trim plate is fairly chesty but the mounting brackets aligned perfectly. There was actually better insight into the installation of the products with this kit than in the Crutchfield installation instructions.
