Design: The Scosche SoundKase DFC1X is a padded storage case for your car stereo's detachable face. "The Pouch" is made of durable black vinyl and micro nylon with a plastic zipper and a custom SoundKase metal zipper pull. On the back of the case is a 1-1/2" wide strap with a hook and loop closure that can be used as a belt loop or finger loop. Another loop at the end of the zipper allows you to insert a ring or clip to attach the case to a backpack. Inside the case is a cloth-lined padded pocket for your stereo face plate. If desired, the case can also be used for storing sunglasses or a cell phone.

Q & A

Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

So my face plate doesn't get scratched up when not in use [ Jason  Oct 21, 2018 ]
Lowest price and 3 way instead of 2 way speakers [ andrew  Oct 10, 2018 ]
Recommended on the head units page. [ Iuri  Jul 25, 2018 ]
favorable reviews and the convenience of adding it to my order rather than shopping for it at a brick and mortar store [ Steven  Apr 07, 2018 ]
The receiver I ordered did not have a case for the face plate - this will help protect it... [ LADD  Aug 22, 2017 ]
I decided to install a Kenwood bluetooth unit in my work truck. While out on vacation someone used my work vehicle and blew out all the speakers by turning the bass up to max and blasting music all day long. So, after having to replace the speakers myself, I'm purchasing this case so that I can detach my units face and keep it safe until I return to work. My Kenwood unit has a detachable face, but for some odd reason Kenwood doesn't supply you with a place to store it once detached. [ Willie  Aug 13, 2017 ]
n/a [ Lacarlos  Jul 31, 2017 ]
I was looking to upgrade my boat head unit. The current one was an Alpine, approximately 12 years old. Nothing wrong with it, just no modern features. I just ordered a JVC, LOADED with up to date amenities. Bluetooth, phone charging, remote control, file storage, etc., for around $100. Amazing! Day trips planned. Can't wait to try out the new unit, while hooked up to Spotify. Thank you Crutch field! What an awesome store. [ Gregory  Jul 05, 2017 ]
To protect my investment. [ Lenny  May 02, 2017 ]
right accessory for my new Pioneer [ Leopoldo  Apr 28, 2017 ]
This item was listed in the Details section when the Alpine description stated that a detachable face protector was not included. [ Mike  Apr 21, 2017 ]
I needed a cover for my Kenwood faceplate and this seemed like a good quality choice. The cover is soft yet protective of the faceplate. [ Zandra  Apr 13, 2017 ]
Purchased the SoundKase DFC1X to protect the detachable faceplate of the receiver. [ DANIEL J  Apr 06, 2017 ]
This is my second time buying this product and very happy with its quality. It kept my radio face in such pristine condition that even after a year, it looked good as new. [ Louis  Mar 09, 2017 ]
Needed a carrying case so the faceplate would not get scratched when mobile. [ Marquese  Mar 04, 2017 ]
To protect and carry the radio face plate when not on the bike. [ Charles  Mar 01, 2017 ]
So i have something to put my detachable face in and it can be protected. [ STEVEN  Nov 29, 2016 ]
Figured it be good to keep detachable unit as clean as possible! [ Amber  Nov 18, 2016 ]
Needed a case for faceplate [ Rachelle  Nov 08, 2016 ]

Display protection [ Mario  Aug 09, 2016 ]
The original hard case hinge was tearing, I needed a new case so as to protect an older cassette face plate unit no longer offered for sale from Crutchfield,...oh well. I'm glade that you folks sell these as many other claim to, but don't seem to actually stock them. Thank You. [ RICHARD F  Aug 05, 2016 ]
Was not included with the Car Stereo Receiver that I bought, needed to protect the detachable face while removed. [ Martin  Jun 11, 2016 ]
style [ LARRY  Apr 27, 2016 ]
To protect rhe face of my head unit if I need to remove it. [ Christopher  Apr 22, 2016 ]
The Sony MEX-XB100BT receiver does not come with a front face carrying case, and this is the one recommended by Crutchfield. [ David  Apr 02, 2016 ]
car receiver did not come with faceplate case according to your product information [ Frederick  Mar 21, 2016 ]
The in-dash Pioneer receiver does not come with a case for the detachable face plate. [ Phillip  Feb 26, 2016 ]
to go with my new car stereo, can t believe that they do not include these anymore [ MICHAEL  Feb 13, 2016 ]
Great way of protecting your radio's faceplate, since most radios don't come with faceplate cases like they once did. [ DAVID  Jan 12, 2016 ]
I picked this to keep my case and face protected as much as possible. [ William  Dec 23, 2015 ]

2 questions already asked

i can say that this case is soft, spacious and durable compared to the hard case that came with my single DIN receiver. I carry the Alpine CDE-HD149BT faceplate along with a Remote Control, 6foot charging cable, USB stick, and a USB lighter adapter. [ Carlos  Mar 21, 2018 ]
Yes it should fit. It has plenty of room for any single din removable faceplate. [ Reginald  Mar 21, 2018 ]
The inside is soft lined foam. There are no pockets or compartments. It fits my faceplate well and it has protected it from bangs and scratches. There may be room to add other items like flash drives, etc. but I only use the case for my faceplate. The case is flexible, so I take care not to crush or bend the case when packing it with the faceplate inside. It has performed well for me, as I do not require a rigid or waterproof case. [ JEFFREY  Aug 25, 2016 ]
yes there is some padding i personally like this case. [ Frank B.  Aug 24, 2016 ]
