My 6 CD Changer has stopped working. I was wondering if anyone has
experience installing a new name unit in the trunk and if the controls will
work the new unit simply by plugging in to existing trunk connector.
You can purchase units that will work with your Mach system, but not just
your average fm modulated unit.
Check Ebay. There are a ton there. IIRC, they're around $200.

Local dealers usually don't know exactly what stereo equipments would
fit in your vehicles perfectly. They would make you buy crap for your car
which will cost extra and force you to rewire or cut your car's wiring
system. That will permanently damage your car's wiring. That kind of damage
on your car will lose its resale value. Local services usually costs MORE
than you can imagine. I personally think that local services is a waste of
I have been a long time customer of Crutchfield. They are kinda like
Curcuit City or Best Buy. However, they only offer products through mail
order service. Crutchfield KNOWS exactly what equipments fits in your car
perfectly. They did research and tests themselves in their labs. Curcuit
City, Best Buy or any local dealers doesn't know shit about car stereos.
Crutchfield has very knowledgable tech support associates who can assist you
with intalling car setereo equipments or home audio system on your own. You
DON'T need a local technican to do the job for you. Save your money and do
it on your own.

advantage of Crutchfield. If you order any items from Crutchfield, you will

I don't think you have a clue what I was talking about. I am not
delusional and biased. I just don't trust local or chain electronics
dealers. I look for the best deals and the best (customer) service.
Crutchfield is a factory-based electronics dealership in Virginia. They have
their own factory warehouse with thousands of brands you can choose from at
very reasonable prices. I personally think that Crutchfield is the best
electronics dealership in the whole world.
I'm not saying wheter it's right or wrong to purchase an electronics
unit from a local dealership, chain dealership, mail order dealership or an
online dealership. Everyone has their own preference in where they want to
purchase their electronics unit from. If you are comefortable with the
services from your local dealers, then stick with it. That's your business.
I am comfortable with Crutchfield's services on my electronics needs. I was
only making a suggestion to someone else here to try Crutchfield. That
doesn't mean you have to try their services.
I've almost had it with you, Masterson. You are so ignorant!
But you will 'trust' a mail order company? odd. and you
really think that Crutchfield isn't a chain electronics dealer??
The store I work for will take $20 off Crutchfields price as
soon as the customer walks in with a Crutchfield catalog.
Crutchfield sells at MAP, easy to beat. As far as service
goes, a local dealer will swap out the electronics same day of
your appointment, if its broken. With, Crutchfield you have a
delay. You have to wait for the shipping. Also with regards to
service, a Voice on the phone is nothing compared to a person
standing in front of you.
Factory based??? Now you are starting to see where my other
comment comes from. Do you mean factory authorized? So are
local dealers! Do you mean Car factory based? They aren't.
We discussed this above.
Here is the Biased. Using words like "in the whole world" Come on...
When buying online, most manufactures revoke their warranty. Not a good
This paragraph you are completely correct. Thank you for making a
Not True. You made a statement of fact. You implied that Crutchfield is
GREATEST, THE BEST, THE ONLY..........blah blah blah. when in fact they
are not. Crutchfield has many shortcomings. They don't know EXACTLY what
fits into every car (your statement), they don't do EXTENSIVE research
your statement) and they certainly don't have a corner on service.
Good luck, I hope you continue to shop at Crutchfield. They are a good
Just please try and remember that local shops hire quality employees also,
sell the same products, at similar prices, most importantly the can talk to
face to face.
