Looks good, but not what we expected

Crutchfield customer from Crystal Lake, IL on 7/16/2019

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

Fit like a glove and seems a solid mounting system for a double DIN radio. However, the bottom edge has a slight bow that looks unproffesional. No amount of fiddling got it go away or even be less bowed. Plus we expected a flush surface with the dash, not the recessed set-up you see in the photo. We've come to accept the recess and overall it looks good, but there a tiny buttons in the corner of our radio that you really need to focus on to get your finger up in to that recessed corner.

Pros: Simple screw on installation

Cons: Bottom edge has a slight bow that looks unproffesional

Scosche SU2029B Dash Kit

Crutchfield customer from Phoenixville, PA on 6/18/2019

2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek

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

I've used Scosche adapters for years and never had a problem. And while the installation was smooth, the adapter for my Crosstrek is just designed poorly. Using the double DIN plate the radio sits back almost a half inch by design. The adapter is too small to fit around a Double DIN radio and the side plates don't have screw holes to allow the radio to sit any farther forward if you wanted it to. I bought a radio with a physical volume knob and I cannot use it because it's blocked by the adapter kit.

Simple!

Crutchfield customer from Wake Forest, NC on 6/16/2019

2012 Subaru Impreza

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

Very easy to use, and it looks good when done. I used it with a double-DIN head unit, have ben satisfied. There isn't much to it, and it's easy to install. My issue is that there should have been some illustrations / pictures showing that the head unit would be recessed when installed. I expected flush mount and nearly took a Dremel to it, to make the head unit mount flush to the front.

Pros: Easy to install looks ok

Cons: lack of sufficient illustration / photos

Does not fit a Kenwood DDX6905S

Mark from Fairmont, WV on 5/24/2019

2014 Subaru Impreza

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

I am very disappointed with the fit with the installation of a Kenwood DDX6905S in a 2014 Subaru Impreza. The kit itself fit well in the car however the unit sits recessed approximately 1/2" back. This makes many of the controls on the left side of the screen nearly impossible to access. Vanna was a tremendous help in confirming the unit was correct, but was unable to offer any suggestions to correct this. I will look around for other options that will allow the unit to sit flush as it should be (like the stock unit). Any one with similar issues and a remedy are asked to reply to this review... The Kenwood DDX6905S unit with (4) Polk 6.5" DB652s is AWESOME.... Just really need a remedy for the offset...

Pros: did it's job mounting the unit

Cons: creates an 1/2" offset, not allowing the unit to sit flush with the dash surround...

Good end result, alignment is critical for motorized faceplates!

Oliver from Fairfield, CT on 4/30/2019

2015 Subaru WRX STI

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

Nearly perfect fit. The bezel is still "proud" of the stereo face, such that centering the stereo is critical for motorized faceplates, like on the Pioneer AVH-W4400NEX stereo I have. if your adjustment of the side plates is not perfect, the faceplate will bind and no open/close. The backside of the bezel appears to need to be relieved by 0.5mm in all dimensions to allow the faceplate to stand proud of the bezel, instead of sitting "inside" it. The holes on the side of the kit nearly line up to all the Pioneer holes (1 on each side needed a drill to make them work). The holes on the "front" of the plate that mount to the car also needed a precise adjustment to fit. making them slightly oval would make installation much easier. In the end, it works and looks very nice.

Pros: Appearance is good, multiple holes for screws, material is easy to work with

Cons: Could allow receiver to be more flush with bezel edges

It's OK

Crutchfield customer from Warwick, RI on 4/15/2019

2014 Subaru Forester

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

It works. However, it does recess the screen back a bit. The look was OK, but I preferred the Metra for a cleaner look and the fact that Metra uses slightly heavier plastic. For aesthetics, I painted the dash kits with the silver to match parts of the dash. The paint took very well, making aftermarket stereo look more like factory finish.

Pros: It works

Cons: Flimsy plastic and it pushes the deck back almost an inch

Installed on 4th gen Forester, the head unit is set back about 1/2" from the front, kind of disappointing it's not flush with dash.

Head unit will be recessed from dash on a 2014 Subaru Forester.

Paul from PNW on 7/19/2018

2014 Subaru Forester

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

This is difficult to install, in that there are no instruction stating how to connect the trim frame to the mounting brackets. Attach one mounting brakcet to the head unit. Align trim frame with first mounting bracket. There are small and large slots, so the frame has a top and bottom. Insrt second mounting bracket into trim frame, at an angle, prior to screwing bracket to head unit. While second bracket is inserted into frame, twist bracket toward head unit and install screws. Head unit will be recessed from dash on a 2014 Subaru Forester.

Pros: Works

Cons: No instruction stating how to connect the trim frame to the mounting brackets. Head unit will be recessed from dash on a 2014 Subaru Forester.

While this piece does fit the dash of the 2015 WRX, I received it in the install kit with the Kenwood DDX6904S and it did not fit the radio, had to return it and ordered the Metra 95-8905B elsewhere.

I won't lie, I was a little apprehensive to buy this and my Pioneer NEX stereo as I had read a review that the dash kit needed to be cut to ensure full movement of the radio. However, I did not have that problem in my Forester. The kit matches up perfectly with the dash, looks like a factory install, and the radio has full movement and functionality.

Pros: Fits perfectly with radio and dash Allows for full operation of radio with fold out screen Looks as good as the factory install

Cons: None

Good product, looks nice

Jason from Durham, NC on 1/2/2018

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I recently bought this to install a double din head unit in our 2015 Subaru Forester Limited. The finished appearance looks very nice and seamless with the existing paneling. I did feel as though I had to apply some pressure (slight bend) while putting 1 of the 4 screws back in to secure the radio into the car. My only ding on the rating was for that...but ultimately all 4 screws aligned and I was able to get it in...with just slightly more elbow grease than other Scosche products I've used in the past. As this was used for a double din installation, I cannot speak to the ease or aesthetics of installing the storage tray with a single din head unit. Would I buy it again? Absolutely.

Pros: Price, matches existing radio console surround, easy to install

Cons: screw hole alignment slightly off for one of the screws.

This product is quite bad. While it is able to mount to the Head Unit I purchased, it is pushed back about a half of an inch. There is no way for me to push it any further forward as it is just too small for the head unit I guess. This prevents me from using the volume knob the way I intended when purchasing this. Very disappointing.

Pros:

Cons: Head unit is pushed very far back.

Not the best fit with my head unit

Steve from Jenison, MI on 8/20/2017

2014 Subaru Forester

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

Installed this in my 2014 Subaru Forester with a JVC Arsenal KW-V820BT head unit. When I first put it all together, the head unit was sitting about 1/4" to 3/8" of an inch recessed into the kit and it didn't look good at all. I wanted a flush look. So I had to break out the dremel and trim some of the plastic from the inside of the kit in order to pull the head unit forward a bit. Not sure if this is the fault of the head unit being a non-standard size, or if the kit is undersized. Luckily, I noticed this a few days before doing the install and called Crutchfield. They searched for another kit that would fit better, but couldn't come up with anything. So they graciously sent me a SECOND kit to modify for free. That way if the modifications didn't work, I could always install the first kit. Great customer service from Crutchfied as always!

Pros: Fit and finish in the dash is factory quality

Cons: The head unit I installed didn't fit quite right

2014 Subaru Forester

Verified customer (What's this?)

This fit well into my Forester but I gotta say I'm not in love with it. Unlike similar kits I have used in the past this one doesn't allow you to retain the HU's trim ring. Also, the HU sits back a hair more than it should which makes removing the face difficult. I installed a 1 din and the storage pocket beneath has holes in the back of it, maybe supposed to be vent holes? I don't like the idea of crud falling behind the dash though. And the pocket is shallower than on other kits so my phone pokes out more. So overall, it works, but the fit and final appearance is lacking.

I used this kit to install a Sony WX-GT80UI purchased from Crutchfield about 4 years ago. The radio was originally installed in a Mazda Tribute, but that vehicle was recently sold and replaced with a 2015 Subaru Forester. I had to purchase the dash kit since I wasn't buying a new radio this time, but it was well worth it. The kit fit the radio perfectly, and everything sits in the dash just fine.

Pros: Easy to install, seems sturdy, looks great.

Cons: None in my case.

I suppose there is nothing wrong with this install kit as long as Crutchfield recommends it for the right car. It does not fit a 2014 Subaru Forester even though Crutchfield says it does.

Crutchfield provided this for free for my Pioneer 4200NEX that I installed in my 2015 Subaru WRX. It simply does not fit. I cut the top portion off, and then piano black vinyl wrapped this kit and am using it. Not one person has noticed the top portion is missing, but I notice. I've read several other 2015 Subaru/Pioneer owners having the same experience, apparently the Metra kit works fine so I'll buy one of those and wrap that.

Poor design, rough fit

David from Greeneville, TN on 2/28/2017

2015 Subaru WRX

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

I have ordered 2 of these kits for 2 different cars (2015 WRX and 2016 BRZ). Neither of them fit according to OEM standards. The trim ring is too thick for a proper mount. The ring pushes the head unit back too far in the dash leaving an unfinished and unprofessional look. While this adapter kit does, in fact, hold a single or double DIN receiver and it does mount properly in the car, it does not fit properly to the receiver due to the thickness of the trim ring. I have also tried Metra kits and have found that they are much better suited. The include a recess in the trim ring that allow the receiver to mount more forward in the dash, leaving a more finished look. I wish Crutchfield would sell Metra kits. I have had nothing but success with them, but nothing but frustration with the Scosche kits.

Pros: Mounts to the factory mounting locations

Cons: Pushes the receiver back too far Single Din cubby binds during install, pushes out on the walls of the adapter

Crutchfield response on 3/1/2017
Once we saw this review, our Tech Support team reached out to David to issue an apology and help him further. We'll either help him get the kit installed correctly, or help him return it for an exchange or refund.

Fits just right in 2014 Subaru Forester

Eric from Denver, CO on 2/9/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)

This works just fine on my 2014 Subaru Forester Premium XT (unlike another user that had an issue with his 2015 Forester). I did, however, have to do a few things to the new radio I bought. The radio came with a small piece of plastic that wrapped around the face, but it was clipped in and able to be removed easily. It also had a metal piece attached all the way around the front half, which was also easily removable. Once I removed those two pieces it fit like a glove into this, perfectly. I just wish some more of this were metal, but I suppose you get what you pay for.

Pros: Everything fits perfectly (after removing extra pieces from stereo)

Cons: All plastic

Scosche SU2029B Dash Kit

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This kit while fits the opening does not allow the radio to sit flush inside of it. There is a horrible edge that is present. Will be looking for something else. Wish I knew this before buying.

Pros:

Cons: Radio doesn't fit!

Crutchfield response on 10/18/2016
Once we saw this review, our Tech Support team reached out to Bryon to issue an apology and help him further. We'll either help him get the kit and radio installed correctly, or help him return it for an exchange or refund.

Easy installation but my radio doesn't sit flush with the dash. Not all bad as it gives you a place to rest and steady your hand for the touchscreen.

Not right for a 2015 Subaru Forester

DanD from Mechanicsville, VA on 7/18/2016

2015 Subaru Forester

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

I give this 1 star b/c it does fit in the dash. Unfortunately, the stereo does not sit flush with the front of the trim piece. The stereo has a small plastic lip around the face plate, which prevents it from sitting flush with this piece. I contacted Crutchfield and was informed that a few other customers have experienced the same issue. Unfortunately, my new stereo looks just like I installed it (that's a LOL moment). Crutchfield did tell me, in the meantime, I can try to trim the piece to make it fit properly, or I can leave it as it is. I'm not sure if that means they are going to try and get a proper fitting kit, or if I'm just going to have to deal with it. I guess only time will tell. The best I can tell you is that if you have a 2015 Forester, this kit will not make a new stereo look professionally installed.

Pros: Quick delivery, friendly customer service (although not definitive on a solution)

Cons: The piece is not right for this vehicle.

Crutchfield response on 7/26/2016
Thanks to reviews, like this one from DanD, we continuously review our current installation kits and consider other options from different vendors to make sure we have the best ones for your vehicle. Our vehicle integration buyer, Darren, is taking a closer look at this kit. Also, aftermarket car stereos often come with a thin trim bezel around the face of the radio. It often can be removed to allow the new stereo to work better with a vehicle's dash kit.

An OK mount

Keith from Hilliard, OH on 5/30/2016

2015 Subaru Forester

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

Not the best adapter I've seen. The main issue is it mounts the deck back a little bit from the face of the dash by about 1/4" or so (see other reviews here saying the same thing). The mount is flush with the dash but the head unit is not flush with the mount. Doesn't sound like much, but it just doesn't make it look like a polished install. I was using mine with an Alpine CDE-W2565BT in a 2015 Subaru Forester.

Pros: Mounts the stereo

Cons: Fit is so so

Fitment Issue

Cass from Irvine, CA on 4/29/2016

2015 Subaru WRX

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

It works as intended but does not sit flush with my Pioneer 3800 Double din receiver. The face of the stereo is inset about 3/4 inch into my dash. I am not sure this can be modified without filing down the tabs on the plastic ring that sits up against the faceplate. If you own a 2015-2016 WRX/STI look elsewhere.... I have seen other options that look better!

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The kit fits in the car fine, however, I have this whole recessed into the dash look going on that I do not like. I don't know if cause the kit isin't compatible with the player, the kit cannot fit over the face of the screen like the screen is to big through the kit. Installed with the pioneer 5100nex.

Pros: Fits car.

Cons: Not sure if player is compatible with kit, or needs some modification.

Worked great 2015 WRX

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Looks great and fit very nice, wish the mounting tabs were metal to make it more sturdy, instead I hacked the bottom tabs off and cut a notch in and reused the OEM bracket underneath the Scosche kit.

Pros: Looks OEM Easy to install Very inexpensive

Cons: Plastic kind of bends easily, found that the OEM bracket fit just fine underneath this with some slight modification for a much more solid feel May have some alignment problems with the radio opening and binding if it's not install exactly right

Does Not fit factory navigation panel

KevinB from Kirkland, WA on 3/30/2015

2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek

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

Crutchfield reports this as supporting the crosstrek with factory nav, but it doesn't fit. the factory nav dash panel is different from the standard dash panel, and has more rounded corners. I had to trim the corners to fit. You can order a replacement dash panel for $80 from subaru, and then use this kit to fit, but that's probably your best option other than trimming down since nobody seems to make a compatible dash kit for the factory nav.

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Didn't work with the car that Crutchfield says it does.

Crutchfield response on 4/1/2015
We're sorry to hear the kit didn't fit quite right, and thanks for letting us know about it. Our Tech Support team will be reaching out to you to get more information so that we can research the matter further.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I used this kit to install a Kenwood in my Subaru Crosstrek XV. It made it even easier than the old style install kits with the metal you had to bend. This kit had the side bracket with 4 screws so it mounted the new Kenwood right back in the dash just like the factory stereo was. Well worth it, great design!

Pros: Great design, easy install, saves a lot of time with the new side mounts.

Cons: None

Not a good fit for my 2015 Subaru Forester. We are still trying to modify the piece to fit the Jensen VX 7020. It fits the console well, but the radio won't come forward far enough to look right. It is probably the fault of the radio (?).

Pros: Fits console

Scosche SU2029B Dash Kit

Crutchfield customer from New Jersey on 7/3/2014

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

I have used other Metra dash kits in the past. Using this on the Jensen VX7020 made the unit sit too far back and not flush in the dashboard. I used a dremel tool to removed 7mm from the rear of the faceplate to allow the unit to come forward and sit flush.

Pros: Easy to use

Cons: in this particular installation, I had to customize faceplate.

Perfect fit. All parts mated up easily in my 2013 Subaru Crosstrek. No issues.

Love that Crutchfeld gives this for free with radio purchase. The price is ridiculous for a plastic ring, but it does what it's supposed to; fills the space and looks good

Fit and finish is good, but required some cutting and trimming. Specifically, I had to shave back the little loops that the trim ring uses to hook onto the main body of the mount. But, what do you expected from a cheap thermo-formed plastic part. Looks good once massaged into place.

Pros: fit and finish is good

Cons: requires massaging to fit
