We create these instructions by using information documented by our Research Team as they take apart vehicles to gather data for our comprehensive fit database. Keep in mind that the MasterSheet only covers removing the radio and speakers from your vehicle, and does not cover wiring up your new radio or the OEM color code.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This helped with the replacement of the factory head unit and door speakers...but not the rear speakers! The Roadster (convertible) doesn't have the same enclosure as the coupe. You only have instructions for the coupe which doesn't help me at all. I'm searching everywhere and can't find instructions for removing rear panel to get to the rear speakers in the Roadster! I have a pro audio guy from here in Pittsburgh doing the install but he's never had a convertible 350Z model.

Pros:

Cons: Doesn't cover removal of rear speakers on Roadster model!

2009 Nissan Versa

This review is for the 2009 Nissan Versa MasterSheet instructions. Everything about the stereo is pretty straight forward but the speakers are a different story. The instructions say that you need to drill 1/8th inch mounting hole. After examining it with the speakers attached to the speaker brackets I couldn't find anyplace where a new mounting hole was required. The bracket lined up perfectly with the factory speaker holes. I did have to drill a new hole though to re-route the speaker wires using a 3/4th drill bit, I went this big so I could get the speaker wire plug through it. The speaker connection for the factory speaker was in the front of the speaker, the connection on the aftermarket speaker was on the back of the speaker, out of the way so there was no where for the wire to connect to the new speaker. I wish these instructions were more specific for this car. I had to do a bunch of guessing. I hope Crutchfield re-examines these instructions and makes corrections to them.

Pros:

Anthony from Honolulu, HI on 2/24/2017

2013 Toyota RAV4

Almost perfect! Everything is accurate when trying to remove door panels and speakers. Only problem I had was trying to install tweets in the dash. Instructions were not clear enough to install them. Pictures on the MasterSheet had 2 wires showing when my toyota rav4 had 4 wires, there was also a mention of connecting the positive wires together but no color distinction was mention though I can't find any info on that in many site and forums so i guess its fine? Called support got a solution but holding off until I get the rest of my build.

Pros: Useful!

Cons: Why is it 10 dollars alone tho u get it free when u buy something

I don't have anything too review. Twice I've ordered the MasterSheet for my 2013 Ford Taurus and still haven't received it... In this day and age why aren't you simply e-mailing these sheets out rather than wasting time and money sending physical sheets.. If I can't get Crutchfield to send a couple of sheets of paper, why would I spend hundreds of dollars on car audio equipment!?

Excellent, succinct, explicit instructions accompanied by detailed photographs made my installation process a flawless event!

Pros: Detailed, simple instructions Clear illustrative photos

Cons: NONE! In concert with the head end unit's detailed installation instructions (and the Subaru Forester's straightforward design), the process was flawless: Not a single issue nor error, with what seemed like dozens of wiring interfaces that needed to be completed!

2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I used 2 different MasterSheets for 2 different cars and both had some information gaps that made me look online for different guides to show me the next step.

Pros: Gave a basic idea of what needed to happen.

Cons: The harder parts or harder to find screws/panels need to be described better and have additional pictures. Each car has it's challenges and when doing the install you learn each car from easy to hard. You should make sure to capture the hard ones or hard parts....

My overall experience was fantastic. I installed a new radio and front speakers using these instructions. Any negative feedback from other buyers is more than likely inexperience work on cars. Although they are simple to understand, proper tools and some experience will be necessary.

Pros: Simple to understand. Easy to understand pictures and graphs, I'm a visual learner so that's a huge plus.

Cons: A little on the pricey side for my taste.

Pros: Great info on removing door panels to install new speakers.

Cons: Didn't show that the original speakers in my 2000 Escort only had 3 screws instead of 4, and that I would have to drill some holes to install the JBL replacements.

I was hoping for installation help for the radio I bought. The instructions did not have any wiring help or diagrams. It said to consult the manual for the radio. I wasted my money. I was able to use the internet to figure out how to wire the radio. This will be helpful if I ever decide to upgrade the speakers in the door.

Pros: It is helpful for removing speakers and your stock radio. It looks like it is helpful for installing new speakers.

Cons: No help wiring the radio during installation. No schematics or wiring diagram. A waste of money. I found the information I needed on the internet.

Jim from Dallas, TX on 9/29/2016

2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have been using and referring others to Crutchfield for years. Perhaps I got to rely too much on the accuracy and complete nature of the Master Sheets over time but I was disappointed by my most recent version for the 2014-17 Sierra/Silverado. As expected, the directions were spot on for dash and console disassembly and even access to speaker locations in the door panels BUT there were no wire ID schedules to guide navigating the factory wiring harnesses forcing me to search on vehicle model forums for info; even more unforgivable are the door panel assembly directions which are as follows: 10. "Test speaker operation and reassemble by reversing disassembly steps." The problem here is they left out small but vital steps to re-assemble the doors without causing damage to the vehicle. I ended up having to go online and watch a YouTube video on the topic after struggling for an hour and bending locking rods and door panel clips.

Pros: Handy to have out in the driveway with half the car taken appart

Cons: Save your time and money just watch a YouTube video for your specific vehicle.

Incredible Guide

2006 Dodge Ram 1500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

All of the information I find with Crutchfield is fantastic - and this guide is no exception. It is clear, concise, and ACCURATE! The only thing that could be added is someone here to actually turn the screwdriver. The photos are relevant and the easy step-by-step instructions gave me the confidence to do the install and know it was done correctly. Whenever I need audio installation or tutorials, I turn to Crutchfield first, and I have yet to not be able to find something to help or explain what I need. I just cant say enough how impressed I am with the level of detail and knowledge that is provided in an easy to understand format for people of all (or like me low) levels of skill and experience. Thanks Crutch!

Pros: Easy to read Excellent photos Accurate

Cons: I cannot think of any!

Very straightforward. Easy to follow.

Oh for negative stars.. I would NOT buy this product, and if you get it free with your order, DO NOT USE IT. The mastersheet is completely and totally wrong for my vehicle. It's recommendations has created damage to my vehicle. Do yourself a favor, and search out your car's service manual online.

Pros: None.

Cons: Completely wrong. Get a service manual. You won't regret it.

I'm not sure why people are rating this so high. The only thing I can think of is that Crutchfield is manipulating the results. If so, this is a one star review. This thing is a piece of junk. It doesn't give any useful information.

Pros: none

Cons: Its total junk.

Gary J from Juneau, AK on 3/31/2016

2011 Ford F-350
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Crutchfield company built their reputation on selling to do it yourselfers. This implys that the company will supply detailed installation instructions that clearly explain how everything goes together. In this case, the detailed instructions were first of all, not detailed and second, very poor. There is no overall schematic showing how all the parts go together and some of the tools needed to do the job were not provided. I am still working on doing the install. Not a pleasant experience.

Pros: Jensen is a well known name & hopefully their unit will work well when I get it installed.

Cons: Install is a major pain when you are working with very poor instructions and don't have needed tools.

The hardest part, made easy

jdr from Oregon on 1/16/2016

1986 Toyota Tercel
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Designing, selecting, wiring and installing a car audio system can be easy for someone with experience in other audio electronics hobbies - except for the part where you have to TAKE APART A CAR. That Crutchfield makes their vast expertise in dismantling dashboards etc. available to their customers has always struck me as going above and beyond for a mail-order retailer. I'm sure I've avoided a lot of costly mistakes by following the instructions on my master sheet. If I was more of a "car person" and less of an "electronics person", I might be disappointed that the master sheet doesn't include more details on wiring. I think a lot of the negative reviews are from people who don't have any problems figuring out where all 14 dashboard screws are, instinctively know that some pieces of plastic can be safely pried apart and others are best left alone, but don't know how to trace a wire from the factory plug to the left rear speaker. So, if you are OK with electronics stuff and clueless with car stuff, the Master Sheet is for you. If it's the other way around, be prepared to spend some time doing more research.

Pros: The info you need to take your car apart without destroying it in the process.

Cons: If you're expecting detailed wiring instructions, you won't find them here.

The installation

me33 from Texas on 10/26/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I had no idea how to install rear 6x9 speakers in my car. The guide they sent to me via email really helped. I have completed my install which saved me about $100.00 The only reason I did not give a 5 star is there was a clip that had no explanation as to how I should "unclip it" still I am unsure of the proper way to do it but It left me with a choice of using a screwdriver to pry it apart or to cut the wire and redo it. Went with the screw driver method and got it to work. anything the book does not cover can be covered via calling Crutchfield. All that being said if you do not know what to do I recommend this.

Pros: - covers main subject matter clearly - anything not covered you can call them about - tells you what tools and socket sizes you need before you start the installation process - has some good picture references - I used this product with success

Cons: - could use 1 more picture explaining a clip I could not figure out by looking at it

As a first time installer, I wasn't sure I could handle the project successfully by myself. I'm a reasonably handy person, but this was uncharted territory for me. I was expecting the "Master Sheet" to guide me literally step by step, but was a bit lacking I thought. The information was correct, while not being as minutely detailed as I expected it gives the info needed. In addition any questions you may have are quickly answered by Crutchfield's oustanding techs.

Pros: Couldn't have done it without it.

Cons: None, really.

tp from gaithersburg, md on 6/22/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

there is nothing bad about the master sheet except the process to obtain one. Given it can be sent electronically having to call someone to order it and a 24 hours or so processing time after purchase makes it less desirable. Also i noticed that almost all (if not more complete) insturctions in the master sheet are available in articles on the site....makes it a hard pill to swallow paying 10 dollars for it.... otherwise i love how much info especially related to car audio installs but also home audio is available from crutchfield...they operate out of my home town but as a company my unbiased opinion is they are awesome to work with.

Pros:

Cons:

Not really what I was expecting..

Joseph from Texas on 6/18/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is only useful if you know absolutely Nothing about your vehicle. I thought that the MasterSheet was a full step-by-step guide through your entire install, including wiring, with plenty of pictures. They ask a lot of questions beforehand about your vehicle and what kind of install you're doing and say each MasterSheet is vehicle specific. I was disappointed to receive a mere 15 page PDF with partial information and black and white photos. Why ask so many Specific questions about my '12 Ext Cab just to send a "07 and up" with generic info. This really only shows how to prepare your vehicle for the install(remove old stereo etc), but not much on the actual install of your new stuff. Generic information like that is available on tons of other resources for free. There's a few footnotes about wiring but not near enough to really be helpful. The idea here is good, just needs work. I understand that each install is custom to a point, but a full walkthrough of a common install for the vehicle would've been much more helpful.

Pros: Good buy if you don't even know where to start.

Cons: Not an install guide. More of a removal guide with brief notes on install.

Not worth the money!

I would have rated it lower than one star but couldn't. I thought I was buying a MasterSheet? It should include a wiring diagram in a MasterSheet not just a few pictures of how to remove dash panels! I even had an electrician say the same thing.

Pros: If your a moron and can't use the Internet to find pics and videos of what you need then this is great I guess.

Cons: Waste of money only includes a few pics and instructions. Either I already new how to do it, found it on the Internet or the instructions were included with the other products I purchased for the install.

The plastic slide(in the dash for the radio) had a lip around the back edge,(Pioneer FHX-720BT 2-DIN CD Receiver) radio would not slide in ,had to cut the lip off ( not hard to do with a razor knife) Metra 95-5817 Double DIN Installation Dash Kit worked well ,good fit !

The manual was ordered for replacing speakers in the doors or a 2005 Chevy Cav. Got them replaced, and I also got to replace the back speakers, and even the headunit. Because those instructions were also included. It wasn't my first time using it, I also used a manual from MasterSheet for my 2008 Liberty. For the price, you can't beat it for a job done the right way. You go into a task with confidence when you haven't messed with the task previously. Just as long as you have the MasterSheet.

Pros: Pictures, step by step instructions, how to do more than just what you originally ordered the manual for, pdf file so you don't have to have a bunch of papers to deal with, price is worth every penny, gets the job done

1993 Volvo 240 Install

Dave from Norheast PA on 6/6/2014

The MasterSheet for the Volvo 240 (1993) was good as far as it went. What it didn't include was details about how to access the harness and connector connected to the external amplifier. Since the stock external amplifier is bypassed with this install, access to that connector is necessary. The wire harness set included the correct connector for it, but said that it was located below the steering column. On this model, it is actually located below the HVAC controls in the center console, and is little tricky to get to and remove. Thankfully a person who reviewed the wire harness provided the necessary information in their review.

Pros: Procedure that was described was accurate.

Cons: An essential part of the installation procedure was omitted.

Mastersheet Goodness

Bryan P. from 37686 on 3/12/2014

2009 Ford Escape
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This little gem helped more than I thought it would. My wife has an 09 Ford Escape XLT and it has very well hidden points of contact on the interior. Plus, I was unfamiliar with the car so I didn't really know where to begin with taking the dash out. I swear I had the head unit out inside of 4 minutes. It may seem a little pricey, but if you're at all unsure about how to go about your install, this is the ONLY way to go. It will tell you up front exactly the tools you need, as well as any tips or tricks they deem relevant. The best part is, it covers every part of the stereo, so if need to know how to pull out the door speakers later, that's included too. The only thing I could say negative about the whole process, is that it wasn't possible to buy this online, I had to call them and order. The guy I spoke to was good, and the transaction was over fast, but I was told the sheet would come in the confirmation email and it didn't. I had to call them back and get it emailed to me because I had a very limited amount of time to work with. That turned out to be a wise move, because I didn't officially even get the mastersheet until 2 days later. Something to work on guys.

Pros: Extremely comprehensive and accurate

Cons: a bit pricey difficult to purchase

Overall a great help. It would be more helpful to include specifics on wiring connections/connectors for us novice installers. Component speakers are definitely more challenging and it would be nice is the mastersheet helped address the installation of such products more specifically.

Pros: Easy to understand and comprehend.

Cons: See review aboce

makes life on install for most much easier.

VinnyinRI from Cranston, RI on 4/7/2013

Takes the hassle out of install. I'm not good with electric at all and this helped out a lot along with the wiring harness.

Pros: Easy to follow

Cons: none

Crutchfield MasterSheet

Luis from Orange Park, FL on 2/22/2013

This was the first time purchasing from Crutchfield, I will most certainly be making all my future purchases from them. The little things that no one else thinks of or cares to think of are what I notice. I received these instructions via email and with my product without even asking for them. Made my install so easy and quick.

Pros: Detailed exactly for my car

Cons: none

2005 Mitsubishi Lancer ES

lewsays from Mesa, AZ on 2/20/2013

Very nice to have some instructions specific to my vehicle and the photos were basically accurate. It would have been 5 stars if it included the detail about needing to ground the aftermarket head unit. Apparently the stereo in the '05 Lancer is grounded through the chassis of the stereo, so grounding the new unit was needed. Not a deal breaker, just had to get some extra connectors to get it done.

Pros: Good basic instruction set for the receiver and speaker installation. Included in the price on my purchase.

Cons: Missing info on grounding for the '05 Lancer.

Pros: Great to keep the install fees in your pocket.

Cons: Too bad for the chain stores.

Very helpful, but needed internet for more help

Anonymous from Laramie, WY on 2/19/2013

Good overall; however, when detaching vent wires didn't say where they were. I had to get on a subaru forum to find out that they're way in the back, and if you get down next to the gas pedal and look up, you can see one section of the vent.

Pros:

Cons:

Not as clear as expected

CW from Quad Cities, IA on 2/19/2013

The basics of the instructions were good but there were details about the installation that were not. I had to call customer support a few times to figure out that some wires needed to be cut so to bypass the harness.

Pros: Descriptive, pictures helped.

Cons: Not complete.

You guys rock

Happy guy from Ferrysburg, MI on 2/19/2013

You guys rock! I used to pay to have radios installed till I heard about cructhfield this took me 20 mins start to finish and was just like the master sheet said it would be! No surprises!

Pros: Great!

Cons: None

Crutchfield Car Audio Installation Instructions

Anonymous from Venice, CA on 2/19/2013

Instructions seemed easy, but ended up being superfluous because my speaker grills popped off. No door disassembly required. Still, C'field guidance is always top notch.

Cons:

Well Done

Patrick A from Duluth, MN on 2/18/2013

Unless you can find a detailed post outlining your specific install, on your specific vehicle, with pictures, this is the best you can get.

Pros: Excellent

Cons: None

Helped with the installation.

David from Phoenix on 2/18/2013

The illustrations were good, would have definitely used if I did not know what I was doing.

Pros: Works great.

Wiring Harness Diagram

Bob J from MN on 2/18/2013

Master sheet was excellent on the stereo Install. However Master sheet fails to show the wiring diagram from The Crutchfield provided harness to the Ford Harness. Pioneer owners manual was cryptic to say the least. Finally we just matched colors and everything worked. Which is a tribute to Crutchfield for getting this right.

Pros:

Cons: Simple statement in the master sheet just to match wiring colors because Crutchfield knows what it is doing would have worked for me.

Master Sheet for 2003 Honda Accord

midlc from Fenton (St. Louis) MO on 2/16/2013

Unfortunately, like the web site re fit of my speakers in my car, expectations were not met. Only 2 of four mounting holes in the speakers line up with the tapped receivers in the rear deck, and the factory grills will not fit over the replacement speakers without non-minor modification.

Pros: Provides general instructions that give one a good sense of the depth of the job.

Cons: Doesn't accurately relay modifications needed to the car -- sets the expectation that none are needed, when in fact, they are.

Generic but easy to understand and work with.

B.J. from Placerville CA. on 2/15/2013

Easy to understand and work with.

Pros: same as review.

Cons: none

Great for Removing Factory Equipement

Anonymous from Atlanta GA on 2/14/2013

The Mastersheet was great for removing the Factory Equipment not so much for installing the new system. Then again maybe that's the whole point.

Pros:

Cons:

Not entirely accurate

erwin from Austin, TX on 2/14/2013

While this mastersheet can serve as a guide, you cannot use it as a step-by-step instruction sheet for a 2005 Santa Fe. There were several omissions, misstatements, and misguidance. For example, do not use a 90 deg screwdriver where indicated. A phillips straight screwdriver is much easier. I feel for anyone who tried to use a 90 screwdriver, especially if they went and purchased one on advice fo the mastersheet. Also, the climate control panel comes out by prying at the top edge of the top 2 corners, not by the sides of the 4 corners as the instructions state (or imply, I don't have them in front of me). There were other inaccuracies, but I can't remember the details now. In short, skim the mastersheet for a general guide to the steps involved, but don't waste time trying to follow the steps verbtim (unless your vehicle matches the photos exactly, mine did not).

Pros:

Cons:

easy as 123

Jeffs from cincinnati oh on 2/13/2013

The only way it couldve been easier is if I had someone install my head unit themselves. Great step by step instruction, tells you exactly what tools you WILL need and no surprises. I HAVE NEVER EVER EVER installed any kind of head unit or speakers before and really not the most mechinally sound individual but it really was that easy. I wish Crutchfield did these instructions for marriage! Thanks Crutchfield great tool

Pros: everything

Invaluable, simple, the key to a successful install.

Pros: You would never find the screws or clips without it.
