Alpine, ya did it.

Crutchfield customer from Fuquay Varina, NC on 11/21/2021

2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee

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

So I have a 2006 Jeep Cherokee and the stock radio that came with it only had an amp with about 11 watts of output. So after I installed all brand new kicker speakers all around it was clear that the wattage couldn't be handled so I knew the easier route would be to get a new head unit. And wow. Alpine pulled through as usual. The setup took roughly a couple hours, which is expected when you don't buy a harness, which I did not. Once I had it all installed I was extremely impressed. For starters like I had hoped, my sound quality had sky rocketed through the roof. Clean crisp sound. The volume is very nice to turn, the display lights are very nice looking, and the overall aesthetic look of the radio is very sharp. The EQ settings are also pretty nice though I wish I had a little more control there. And the best feature in my opinion is just the connectivity, my phone instantly connects to it the minute it turns on and when I'm plugging it in to Bluetooth it switches from whatever previous mode it was on to USB. Great job Alpine!

Pros: -sleek design -satisfying buttons and knobs -efficiency 10/10

Cons: It doesn't come with a crossover function which is honestly the only thing I wish it had because then I could individually EQ each set of my speakers.

Great sound

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I replaced the original radio and kept the original stock amplifier in my 93 Mustang with factory premium sound. A previous owner had upgraded the speakers. Now sounds great. Installation was a breeze with the Crutchfield harness and installl kit. Plays music off my iPhone perfectly.

Pros: I didn't have to modify the stock wiring harness

Cons: None that I found.

Crutchfield customer from Batesville, VA on 11/18/2021

1998 Infiniti QX4

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

I got this to replace the 23-year-old Bose CD/cassette player that came factory in my Infiniti QX4. The most immediate difference I noticed was the very much enhanced volume and clarity of sound from the new Alpine head unit. I actually have bass again!!! I'm not into all the extra bells and whistles that come with today's units so I cannot judge how well they do or do not work. All I know is that for a very affordable price I can once again cruise down life's highways and hear all my great music the way it was meant to be listened to: loud and proud.

Pros: Super easy to install with Crutchfield's pre-wired harness; great sound even with 23-year-old Bose speakers.

Cons: None as of this writing

Great sounding system. Feature rich. Tiny buttons and weak display

Ralph from MILFORD, OH on 11/17/2021

2000 BMW 3 Series

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

I replaced the factory "business radio" in my 2000 BMW 323I w this particular unit. I also purchased the Sirius XM remote tuner and the very nice quality Crutchfield pre-made wiring harness adapter from factory plugs to the unit. And as an added bonus the steering wheel controls interface. After watching several videos on the trim and factory radio removal, the removal, wiring and installation of the unit, along with the remote Sirius XM tuner and a Metra face plate adapter went without a hitch and I was very pleased w the overall "OEM" look and having the steering wheel functions working correctly (there are tiny dip switches that need to be configured based on your vehicle and system purchased but easy instructions to follow.) Following the installation, pairing to my phone and general familiarity w the unit I was very pleased. Bluetooth phone and streaming Pandora work perfect. So did the Sirius XM for a few weeks until I started receiving the "Check Tuner" error message. Turning the unit off and on again usually cleared it. When it didn't or I needed to focus on driving I simply selected the Bluetooth source and just streamed until the unit reset and I could use Sirius XM. This error is happening more often and also in my Ford F-150 w a Kenwood system and same remote Sirius XM receiver. Very annoying. Finally, although the car rarely driven and is covered in my garage the faceplate adapter is warping and the display is basically unreadable except in at night.

Pros: Great sound Many features Crutchfield harness adapter makes interface to factory wiring easy Steering wheel controls interface as well with programmable module Cool lighting and display choices to match factory gauges Detailed printed owners manual included Typical Crutchfield prompt shipping and great prices and service

Cons: Display unreadable in any light except daytime shadows and full dark Face plate adapter warping after short time

Alpine and Pioneer combo

Crutchfield customer from Cresskill, NJ on 10/25/2021

2005 Mercury Grand Marquis

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

Replaced the stock radio in my 05 Grand Marquis. Wow! So many options. Sound great! I replaced all the stock speakers (4) with Pioneer 4-way coaxial speakers in 2020. I like the options for sound especially. Can adjust tremble, mid and bass. The midrange is a great adjustment for these Pioneer speakers. The MIC that comes with the radio for Bluetooth hands-free iPhone is good. Very easy radio to setup. As always, the staff at Crutchfield really know their business. Getting the correct wire harness adaptor and the sleeve to install the radio was a click away on the website. The dash install kit is top notch. I put it all together indoors and just had to slide the old radio out and push in 2 connectors (car harness and antenna)( and the MIC installs in back of radio) and the radio was working immediately. All the car options like light dimming worked! I ran the MIC wire behind the lower dash trim and clipped it to the column shifter. Perfect spot for talking hands-free on the phone. Song titles from homemade CD's shows up in the radio display. Yeah I still play those. THE AUX jack for the SONY ATRAC player works perfectly. The FM radio is top notch. I noticed it picks up very distant stations that the old radio couldn't do. Local station sound perfect. With clarity. No need for a sub woofer. The Pioneer speakers have appreciative bass response.

Pros: Many

Cons: none

Good solid radio

Crutchfield customer from Dallas, OR on 9/26/2021

2002 Chevrolet Astro

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

Overall I like this radio. This is my first Alpine, and latest car stereo in about 18 years. It has a lot of good features. Being able to change the display color separate from the buttons is weirdly satisfying. Sound is as good as it can be given it is in a Astro van with old speakers (which will be next on the list to replace). I tried using it with sound files on a USB stick and navigating through that is frustrating. The phone pairs just fine and the sound quality for the person on the other end is decent. I was really happy to find a radio that didn't have Alexa interface, and I'm looking forward to trying pandora.

Pros: great installation kit, the wiring and bracketing was basically flawless

Cons:

2016 Jeep Patriot

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

My Chrysler/Jeep factory unit died, common problem. Needed a basic CD/radio/SiriusXM ready unit that would be easy for me to self-install. This Alpine ticks all those boxes plus it fit perfectly in my dash and looks great. Nothing fancy, but it sounds a bit better than the factory unit. Buy tie wraps and crimp connectors ahead of time, not included in kit. You'll need to call Crutchfield phone support to find out which parts and wires aren't needed for your vehicle. Don't waste your time trying to figure it out yourself - life is too short!

Pros: Good looking 18 station presets Easy to install SiriusXM SXV3001V1 no issues Perfect fit in dash with adapter kit Sounds great Price is right Crutchfield phone support is excellent

Cons: Controls could be more intuitive The big bass boost button is just taking up space because I don't have that feature. You'll lose your built in SiriusXM antenna and will need to run wire for the magnetic one that comes with the add-on module.

Ok. I am giving it 4 stars because I have only had it in my car for a week. I don't have much time with it but I love it! I know everything is relative. My last stereo was 10 years old and it was basic at best. This Alpine stereo has plenty of features. I know Bluetooth is common but in a vehicle from the 80s it's a wonder. Easy connection to my phone. Plenty of power. I had to upgrade my speakers to appreciate the sound produced from this unit. All I can say is so far so great!

Installation was super straightforward. No issues with connecting bluetooth to iphone 11. Significant step forward in the sound quality and functionality. Basic use is very straightforward but with the large amount of customization possible this means the menus go pretty deep and sometimes what you are looking for is buried quite deep. All in all, very happy.

Pros: Significantly improved sound, customization of features, modern features

Cons: Significant customization means you can get buried in the menus...

I got this for my Mercury Grand Marquis and before it was installed the sound quality was very bad and I thought I was going to have to get new speakers, whenever I got my car back I was so impressed by how much of a difference there was in sound quality. It sounded like surround sound at a movie theater and I could crank the radio up to 25 and still have it sound great with no problems. I recommend this stereo to anyone who is looking for a new one, it was well worth the money.

BT will not stay connected, requires constant manual reboot

d from Taylorsville, KY on 8/11/2021

2011 Ford Crown Victoria

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

The biggest problem is the Bluetooth connection. It randomly, maybe every 3rd or 4th time I drive the car, loses connection with my Samsung S20 phone. It is the unit, not the phone.... I get in my other vehicle and the phone easily reconnects to the old Sony unit in it with no issues, even after a month of not driving that vehicle. Looking at reviews, this is a common problem with this Alpine unit. It wont allow me to reconnect, and requires a total manual reboot to go back to factory settings....which then requires you to again setup everything to get your sound preferences and clock where you want them, which is a good 10 minute process each time, as the buttons are NOT intuitive without consulting the manual. It's probably easier to launch a nuke than to get everything reset where you want it, just to have it happen again 2 days later. I'm about to rip this thing out and toss it. I have used Alpine amps for years, and when I built this vehicle, I figured I'd go all-Alpine due to my satisfaction with their amp quality over the years. If this is indicative of their head-unit quality, I will go back to the Sony and Pioneer units I always used to use. Other than those 2 issues, the sound is great once you get it tuned to your preferences. But then, part 2 of the counter-intuitive button issue comes up. Your next song is too bass-heavy so you want to turn down the bass. May as well pull the car over to adjust it, as you again try to enter the launch codes. FRUST

Pros: The unit sounds great once going through all the options to customize the sound to your tastes.

Cons: HORRID BLUETOOTH CONNECTION RELIABILITY. NON-INTUITIVE BUTTON OPERATIONS.

Love this Alpine

Crutchfield customer from Estill Springs, TN on 8/4/2021

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

I love this radio ! The installation was a breeze , due to free installation gear along with great instructions. I was concerned about getting a new radio because the one I was replacing was a 1993 model , only had bass , treble and volume adjustments. This alpine is so simple to use it's amazing. I originally purchased a different model Alpine that I was having trouble adjusting the volume on. I contacted Crutchfield and explained what was going on while saying I didn't know if it was the radio or something I was doing ! My support Tech said he would be happy to replace my radio. Since my model was currently out of stock I got a different model (better) with an added discount , wow ! My new Alpine is all I could ask for I saw first hand why Crutchfield gets such high marks for customer service. Will only purchase electronics from Crutchfield in the future.

Pros: Easy installation User friendly controls Great sound

Cons: I have no negative comments for this radio or Crutchfield

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Installed with the KTP-445a power pack and two sets of Alpine S-series speakers. Sounds AMAZING. This head unit has great responsive buttons, clean aesthetics, and can kick out TONS of bass from your speakers. The highlight of this unit is the ability to play CDs and the compatibility with Alpine's "power pack" amplifiers. The Bluetooth pairing is seamless and the aux has great quality. The eq is simple but really effective. Alpine's "bass engine" is nothing top scoff at. Bass engine really wakes up your speakers and makes them SHAKE.

Pros: Clean Bluetooth, Good aux input, CD compatibility, Nice lights, Solid buttons, Great eq, Tons of bass

Cons: None

Render unto Caesar what is Caesar....

Crutchfield customer from Summerton, SC on 7/12/2021

1999 Ford Econoline

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

I must admit that I was more impressed and satisfied with Crutchfield's customer service than the Alpine CDE-172BT car stereo itself. Not that I am experiencing any problem with the Alpine deck, as it is working great as expected from a reputable long-time car stereo company. I am merely rendering unto Caesar what is due to Caesar and unto Alpine what is due to Alpine. So I got everything needed to install the deck, and extra. Pulling out the old factory radio from my 1999 Ford E450 truck required a special tool, which Crutchfield, to my surprise, included in the package. I can hardly justify a reason for buying my car stereo assets anywhere besides Crutchfield, unless I am looking for an archived or used piece, which is where the online auction site comes in.

Pros: Crutchfield service was flawless and exceptional. The Alpine unit is working as expected. I don't really use Bluetooth so I can't include that in my review.

Cons: Wish I could afford the more expensive decks that offer some non-essential but useful features like the mighty GPS.

I bought this Alpine for my father and installed it in his 2005 Dodge Dakota Quad Cab. It's simple enough for him to operate while driving and he's very impressed with the sound quality. I had Crutchfield pre-splice the wiring harness so it went into the dash in minutes and I've heard nothing but rave reviews from him so far.

Pros: Dad likes the way the incorporated equalizer fine tunes the sound. He especially likes the bass it delivers, even through his factory speakers. Installation couldn't have been simpler.

Cons: None to speak of so far, although I wish I could find a head unit without nested menus. They don't seem to exist anymore though.

Bought this as an upgrade from the stock radio, and it was a very easy installation. Configuring the device is much easier after reading the user manual, and I was able to set everything up in under 5 minutes. I chose this stereo because it has great reviews from various sites, and this was my first time doing a stereo upgrade so I figured I'd learn on something more cost effective. For the price I'm very satisfied with the sound quality and overall functionality, and the large button to the left of the volume knob isn't as bright or intrusive as I thought it would be.

Pros: Solid quality and functionality for a reasonable price, large button to the left of the volume knob isn't as bright/intrusive as I thought it would be.

Cons: None yet

Very happy - terrific FM reception

Crutchfield customer from New Salem, MA on 7/6/2021

2009 Toyota Sienna

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

This might be a 5 star -will need a bit more experience with the bluetooth phone connection to determine (some initial difficulties getting connections... will have to see if that persists). Or maybe a 4.5 rating, given issues with AM reception. A major reason I bought this is that I wanted good FM radio reception; I was replacing a factory radio/cd for a 2009 Toyota Sienna. This Alpine 172BT has great FM reception - better than the original Sienna radio. Altho it doesn't seem to allow the user to select local/dx or stereo/mono settings, which I've done in other units to improve reception on weak signals. Although I don't use AM much (mostly to listen to ballgames) AM radio reception seems very poor. CD player works fine, all other functions as well. All in all, I'm very happy with this unit. And the price was right.

Pros: Strong FM reception. Price.

Cons: Weak AM reception

Instruction to install very hard to follow - not clear. Had to call Technicians twice to walk me through the installation. Operating instructions also very difficult to follow-I am working on it. The light is very difficult to read stations - need to make brighter or figure out how in instruction as to who to make better. The print or radio is to small for me. Can it be made larger in instructions. I only have reading glasses (3.00) and never had problems reading or seeing other car radios. May need to replace done the road or return within next 20 days. recommend video instructions for installation and instruction in setting dial.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Recently bought a 1999 Mercedes ML320 and after about a month of dealing with the weak factory radio and I finally decided to replace the radio despite not being knowledgeable about the subject or installation process and being a little intimidated by it. I paid extra for the Crutchfield Ready Harness to make the whole process a little easier and it turned out to be a breeze. Took me 10 minutes to pop out the radio and install the CDE-172BT. My frame of reference for the sound quality of this unit is based off the 22 year old factory radio it replaced, but man did it greatly improve my listening experience in my car. I don't have use for the USB port or the Pandora or Sirius options so I can't comment on their functionality, but the Bluetooth has worked flawlessly. The display is crisp and the menus are easy to navigate. The audio and EQ settings seem to offer a good deal of customizability, more than enough for my purposes at the moment at least. Since the unit has the RCA outputs for it and with how easy the whole process has been I might try to tackle installing an amplifier and subwoofer soon. Overall I'd say well worth the purchase.

This Alpine stereo has great features. I installed it in a 1998 Ford ranger, just the head unit and 4 - 5 1/4 inch speakers (also from Crutchfield) no amp, it just blew me away, and the JVC unit it replaced. I'm more than satisfied and Crutchfield is with you every step of the way. From matching what does and be doesn't fit your vehicle, free wiring harnesses, free master installation instructions, free mounting kits, what more can you ask for? Great customer service and friendly, knowledgeable staff who don't put you on hold listening to elevator music telling you how important your call is to them, your call, text, emails and overall satisfaction IS, let me them prove it. Customer for life here.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

After a lot of searching for a replacement HU for my HD 2003 Ultra Classic I settled on this unit...Mainly because this unit has a CD player and I have alot of CD that we still enjoy listening to (Metal Music 80's)...Added bonus is the updated gadgets that it comes with you know the routine this and that and the other thing... BUT another feature for us riders is the remote plug on back of HU for handle bar functions with a separate adapter...I also added a Alpine amp and 4 new Polk Audio speakers...All in all it sounds good BUT sun glare cancels out information on screen...That's why I have CD's for long haul rides but I will soon hook up with XM radio and have fixed radio stations wherever we go...Nice unit happy with purchase

Pros: All the new do dads

Cons: Sun glare cannot read screen

Inexpensive and works as advertised. We used this unit with the install kit and wiring harness and it plugged right in. The controls are a little clunky to use and not intuitive. It's a little old school with the detachable face plate but it works great.

Everything about it is user friendly. Bluetooth connects smoothly and seamlessly. Microphone is fine for call quality. Display is very eye catching, it can be dimmed and customized to match your car's dash instruments. Installation into my 2002 Camry XLE (no nav system, climate control) was surprisingly smooth - my only complaint was having to grind down a few sheet metal screws to replace the Alpine factory screws, which will not match up with the provided plastic receiver. (Not long enough). Crutchfield didn't have a solution or size on the screws so just so you know they're #10 threaded. I used #10x3/8" sheet metal screws from home depot and ground the tips off to make them bolts.

It's a nice radio. Full of features especially considering the price. Two negatives: 1. Did not come with a screw fir the ground wire. 2. The adapter that goes into your dash does not adequately support the weight of the radio. I was able to find a screw to fit the ground location. I may be able to use the adapter that was used on the other radio to better support this one. It's just a major pain to disassemble, again. And every time I take it apart I risk breaking all of the plastic dash parts. Other than that I commend Crutchfield on price and instructions.

Pros: Price and options

Cons: Install had some issues

Great and simple headunit. No engine noise and no distortion that I can detect at full volume. I'm using mine with the RCAs to a separate 4channel Amp. I think this is a very solid unit and the bass engine feature is actually great. I didn't think I would use it. The only gripes I have are that it takes about 20 to 30 seconds for it to connect to my phone via Bluetooth every time I start my vehicle. And that when I have my phones Bluetooth volume at max volume, the signal get corrupted and younwillbhear popping that sounds like the speakers are clipping, but this headunit has a feature to booth the input level for Bluetooth and auxiliary inputs so you don't have to max the volume on your phone.

Superior sound quality.

Excellent sound quality even with old factory speakers. Blue Tooth sound streaming is also excellent. The radio reception is also quite good.

Pros: Sound reproduction is really good.

Cons: Brightness is not good during the day. I'm not a big fan of single knob for volume and other adjustments.

Works great and Bluetooth pairs quickly. I really like being able to change the colors but u wish it had lighting effects like some other head units I've seen. I also wish it had features for spotify and pandora instead of just pandora. I do like having the extra features. Overall it's just fine for my use.

Pros: Bluetooth is quick, nice features, easy to use

Cons: Kinda pricey, only has extra features for pandora.

Good simple single din radio.

Crutchfield customer from Livermore, CA on 4/11/2021

2010 Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback

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

Good sound and connectivity. Supports everything my 2010 mitsubishi had built in. My two complaints; there is dedicated outputs for satalite radio and pandora even though I don't use them, and when I plug in my phone to the usb input it auto switches to the usb input and reads music files from my phone.

Pros: Connectivity with Bluetooth and steering wheel controls.

Cons: Pandora and sat radio inputs clutter the operating interface.

2001 new beetle install

Jack from Rathdrum, ID on 4/10/2021

2001 Volkswagen Beetle

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

This radio sounds hands down better than the factory radio of the 2001 vw new beetle and works quite well with the Polk audio DB 652 speakers I had installed some time ago. The blue tooth connects consistently and reliably with phone call audio sounding as good as it does in my Subaru Outback. No more blue tooth ear piece for me! Streaming audio from my iPhone 12 can be done via usb or Bluetooth and even if streaming audio with usb, the Bluetooth still connects when making or receiving a call. The supplied install kit worked quit well and with the wiring harness, one does not have to worry about the car's K-line as there is no connection made to the radio nor is it looped to another wire. I also did not have to cut anything of the car to get the radio in place making it always possible to revert to stock should I need to do this. I did remove the tray below the radio that holds the seat warmer/hazard switches as this gave me easier access to pull the wiring harness down so the radio could slide in place easier.

Pros: Great sound. Simple operation. Reliable Bluetooth connectivity. Pretty good install instructions.

Cons: The additional wiring harness adapter bulkiness makes it more difficult to "seat" the radio and the reason why I pulled the seat warmer/hazard light switch tray below out for wire access. No cons for the alpine itself.

First time I've installed an Alpine unit and it won't be the last. Very solid, easy to customize both key and display colors. Bass Engine is a very nice feature. For the price it's a very good value in my wife's convertible replacing an old Kenwood unit that finally quit. This deck is powering 4 speakers without an external amp and sounds better than I expected. Highly recommend!

Pros: Great value, Bluetooth streaming works well with Android and iOS. Customized display options.

Cons:

Alpine works great with factory amps and speakers

Fritz from ARGYLE, TX on 4/3/2021

1994 Ford Mustang

Replaced this Alpine with the factory 1994 mustang GT Mach 460 stereo . It improved the sound tremendously. The Crutchfield harness purchased separately made the install easy and time saving. It worked flawlessly with the 3 factory amps. The improvement in sound made it sound like new. Will buy from Crutchfield again if I need a electronic item.

Love it and for the price it is a STEAL!! made my subwoofer sound even louder then the old alpine stereo I had. Trust me if u want a good deck for the low this is it ????

Pros: The color changing is cool, and gives ur subs that extra kick trust me.

Cons: No cons about the stereo it self but crutchfield did give me a bogus mount cuz it didn't fit my truck but they told me it did

This was an easy install thanks to the gear that came with the unit. It pays to buy from people who know car stereos. The unit performs great. I'll certainly be back. I have several other vehicles, and wouldn't think of going anywhere else for my stereo and audio needs. I've been buying from you guys for years, and have never been disappointed. ????????

Pros: The accessory kit is the only way to go. It makes the install much less painfully.

Cons: I couldn't find any!!

Complicated But Cool

Crutchfield customer from Grand Blanc, MI on 3/16/2021

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

It's nice to have a CD player available in these advanced and enlightened times. Not everyone enjoys lugging patch cords and external players or flash drives along in the car. The Alpine AM-FM-CD radio solves those problems. While the setup and configuration are a bit difficult the end result is worth it.

Pros: Great Sound At A Reasonable Price

Cons: It's helpful to have a copilot along for the setup and configuration process.
