Overview

Our take on the Scosche ACM1

Protect that expensive in-dash receiver in your boat with this Scosche universal marine cover. The tinted design will match just about any interior, and the hinged cover will shield any single-DIN (or 2-shaft) radio from sun, salt, and spray. Outer dimensions: 9-7/8"W x 4-3/8"H x 3-15/16"D (with cover open). You can find more detailed dimensions in the Details tab. Warranty: 90 days.

Great product at a reasonable price

Good unit, bad template

Max from Erie, PA on 5/29/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

See pro's and con's. That's where my review really is. Overall a good product but template is too small for the unit. Like they scaled it down at printing.

Pros: Looks great and works great! Seals in the stereo on my bike and the looks flow with my fairing.

Cons: Cutting template is not right at all. It's almost as if it was reduced when printed. Cuts were too small and holes marked for drilling were not right. Luckily I realized this once I cut the stereo opening per the template and the unit did not fit. It needs updating, because if you did follow it completely and not test fit after cutting, you'd end up having extra drill holes to mount it. That's not acceptable. Just glad I test fit it first. Be aware if you buy this some modification is necessary.

Awesome marine product

Mason from Granby, MA on 9/7/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The product itself seems well built, but I didn't get to install it. The template that comes with it is scaled too small and therefore useless. The actual size hole required was too large to fit on my dash console.

Pros: Seems sturdy

Cons: Template not correct

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to install. Flip cover performs as advertised. I am using this cover to protect a non marine alpine unit as a marine unit in my boat. There is larger selection and better features on non marine units works great with no problems

Pros: Ease of installation

Cons: Little spendy

Works like a charm!

RPags from Bordentown, NJ on 7/27/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I wasn't sure if this would work on my boat however I just had to open the space vacated by a Clarion receiver. It makes it simple to open the cover and close it compared to the original.

Pros: Smooth action when opening with a push of a button.

Cons: Having to cut a larger hole in the console. The cover disappears inside the console when opened.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Just what i needed. Used it on my Harley fairing to cover the radio.

Pros: Ease of installation and use.

Cons:

Not a true marine product.

MadhouseSS from Pueblo West, CO on 11/15/2013

Reading the description of this product makes one believe it is suitable for marine use which is incorrect. I replaced an older version faceplate cover with this one and within a sort period of time the sliding face of this product did not want to slide open smoothly. I had to clean a small amount of dust from the sliding tracks. That is a common occurrence yet not this product's major flaw. The biggest problem with this product involves it actually channeling water directly to the head unit it is suppose to be protecting. In the description it clearly states it has a foam gasket which apparently did not help keep water away from my expensive head unit. It took a five minute afternoon drizzle to put my Kenwood into some sort of flashing "protection" mode. I cut the power to the unit and allowed it to dry which the unit worked fine a day later. I used silicone to seal the back of this cover to the boat in order to keep the water out. No dice. The problem is the sliding face plate allowed water into the head unit. The next time I was out it rained again. This time there was not hope for the Kenwood. It no longer works because I trusted a product that claimed to be a marine product and clearly was not. The best use for this product does not involve an application where it

Pros: Looked like a factory part

Cons: Head unit suffered water damage from rain. Flimsy sliding door that is stubborn and does not want to slide open unless it is super clean. Latch holding door down opens itself. Plastic got hair line scratches easily.

Very nice stereo cover

Chuck C. from Texas on 10/18/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a really nice cover. Worth the price. Fit my stereo perfectly. Operates flawless. I really like the spring loaded front cover operation. Hoping to get a lot of years service out of it.

Pros: Nice cover that provides protection to the stereo.

Cons: The overall footprint of the cover installed was bigger than I realized. But that is my fault for not understanding the measurements before I installed it.

Tony from Charlotte, NC on 8/17/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This cover works great, but throw away the template that they sent in the package. Take your own measurements and make the necessary hole cuts. You could imagine how frustrating it was to install with a outdated template!

Pros: Works great once installed.

Cons: Template needs updated.

Crutchfield response on 8/26/2013 Thanks for your review. We're letting the manufacturer know about the problem with the template. The dimensions listed on the template are correct, but you're right; they do not match the dimensions of the template printout.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

the door springs are to weak ! door wont stay latched closed ! package missing template ! , had to make mine. door scratched out of package ! just a all around bummer, if i hadnt took so much time to install i would have sent back ! another inferior product as far as i am concerned .

Pros:

Cons:

Add bulk and no protection!

joeysparadise from Branford, FL on 8/13/2010

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The smoky cover just flaps open with the slightest breeze of air...literally! What you end up with is a bulky frame around your exposed receiver. The latch mechanism is plastic and of poor quality... complete design flaw. The slightest vibration or touch opens the cover. Driving the boat down the road, on the water et al.... unless the vessel/vehicle is sitting absolutely still, will elicit such a response. this provides no protection whatsoever. I hope crutchfield will test this product and offer a better design. They also sent me a different model free of charge, it looks like it will stay closed more or less (Metra-99 cover...). Go with that one. Because now I'd have to drill new holes in my boat and caulk the old ones from this Scosche because the Metra is slightly less bulky.

Cons:

Why did you buy this?

On a motorcycle, need to be safe from the elements [ Brian  Jun 01, 2017 ]
I'm using this in my motorcycle fairing so space is definitely an issue. The flip up style ones would be in the way so this unit seems like a good fit. [ Maximilian  May 04, 2017 ]
Feedback from other Harley-Davidson customers. [ Barry  Mar 27, 2017 ]
This is going in a boat and wanted extra weather protection. [ Michael  Nov 23, 2016 ]
Cover protect radio from being kicked or hit. The screen is tinted but you can still see some information while closed. [ Daniel  Nov 14, 2016 ]
Fits the Fusion radio I got and will keep it safe from the salt water on my center console boat both at sea & powerwashing.. [ Gerald L.  Jul 23, 2016 ]
I broke my last one and needed a replacement. [ Sam  Jul 18, 2016 ]

To replace a broken unit of similar design. [ Jody  Jun 08, 2017 ]
because the radio was white. [ James  Apr 10, 2017 ]
I don't know much about stereo equipment but I have purchased from them in the past based on their advice and it was right on target. I need a new stereo for the boat, and I trust their advice. Also I have had Kenwood home stereo tuner for over thirty five years and still works great. [ P  Jan 02, 2017 ]
Figure it would help keep unwanted salt spray of my flats boat unit. We'll see. [ Grant  Aug 19, 2016 ]
Seemed like the best choice [ William  Jun 25, 2016 ]
Installed this cover in the past. It looks good. The only issue I had was that it did not want to stay latched. Hope this one works better. Other then the latch issue it worked very good. [ MICHAEL L  Mar 01, 2016 ]

4 questions already asked

I don't remember the distance between the mounting holes but I did have to enlarge my single din opening about a quarter of an inch so the cover could roll back when opened. [ Michael  Sep 20, 2016 ]
