Product reviews from the Crutchfield Labs

Great value, very handy

Written by Jude, Director, Digital Imaging, on 7/10/2014 9:23:00 AM
My son just purchased a newer car, a 2002 Pontiac Sunfire and the sound system it came with was, well, awful. We sat down together and planned a system and since he was on a budget we decided we would go with our house brand Sound Ordnance for most of it, and we are not disappointed. We installed the P65-C in the rear deck using the SA69 6X9 adapter. We then installed the P-40 in the front doors with fabricated brackets we made from the 12x12 sheet of ABS #1208900903 and then used the Dynamat #15410415 to seal it all up and add sound deadening to the doors. We chose the JVC KD-R950BT for the Bluetooth and the generous power the internal amplifier has, plus the abundant color choices made it easy to match the red backlighting in the Pontiac. We needed bass so we used the Sound Ordnance B-24 and the Rockford Fosgate #575P500X1B we had from his previous vehicle and connected it using the EFX 8 gauge wiring kit #142PA8. We spent a Sunday working on this project and have to say it exceeded my expectations on sound. It sounds clear, the bass hits as hard as you want and the total price was well within his budget. This is a great system and it was also a great day spent with my son.

I tried to make adapters to mount speakers in my 1993 Toyota Camry wagon hatch, but i don't have time for all that. I do have a jig saw, though, and a drill. And I've been to the hardware store and found screws that will fit. I just don't have the time and patience to make a template and cut out the adapters. I also just want to do as much of it myself since it is an old car. [ Alison  Apr 13, 2017 ]

I choose it for a custom backing for my front door speakers from factory to Rockford Fosgate. Ended up using MDF because it is stronger and worked better in my specific application. Product is very flimsy. [ A  Dec 16, 2016 ]

4 questions already asked

Have'nt done that particular application before, but I would be a bit hesitant that the weight of the phone might too much depending on the way you attach the plastic panel to the opening. The panel is not very thick and may over time crack or break from the weight of the phone. [ Joseph W.  Aug 16, 2016 ]
I didn't end up using mine. [ VICTOR M  Oct 22, 2014 ]
You need to cut out a piece that will fit around your speaker hole then trim a hole to mount speaker (will look like a donut) only issue is this material is pretty stiff and difficult to cut unless you some kind of power tool to trim Would be fairly difficult with heavy duty snips I ended up not using and just got other precut trim rings [ WENDELL  Oct 22, 2014 ]
This is essentially a blank piece of black textured plastic to fill an unwanted hole in your dash or elsewhere in the vehicle. You could in fact mount a speaker to this material as long as you attach it to your substrate sufficiently. [ Joseph W.  Aug 16, 2016 ]
The panel is pre scored for the speaker and space size that you are using. Either you use the pres scored, of cut it to the desired space measurements [ C  Mar 21, 2016 ]
We have not received any answers from other customers on your question. I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They should be able to help answer your question. [ Krissy  Oct 24, 2014 ]  Staff
