Poor design and installation instructions
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I purchased this product with high hopes that it would provide for an easy installation as well as work well within my wall to provide a clean look for hiding some components. The product itself is a very cheap piece of plastic. For this price, I do not see quality in this box. I also feel that it was poorly engineered. Additionally, the template that is provided does NOT work for installation. First, the template size is too small to get the box into the wall. I had to expand my cuts vertically. Second, the template is a perfect rectangle. If you look at the back of the box, there are many notches as well as anchors that sit outside of the template box that have to go thru the wall as well. I had to make special cut outs in my dry wall in order to get the box into the wall. It feels functional now, but I'm not too happy with the installation an mess I made within my drywall. I had to fabricate extensively to get the box into the wall. If you're a novice, you may want to look at other products as this particular product was not easy to install, nor did I find the directions accurate to the installation process. I'm attaching pictures. If you look at my photos, I ran into issues installing on the left side of the wall mount due to horizontal studs. If you have a stud finder you'll have to run it sideways up and down your wall in order to pick these guys up. The box only works with standard 16 inch stud spaces. Make sure yours are exactly 16 inches.
Pros: Large to allow for ample space with components.
Cons: Poor installation instructions. Difficult install. Cheaply made.
