At the risk of sounding like a commercial, which I ain't, I'd go to
Just about the only things I've ever done on a car that were way easier than
I thought they'd be were Crutchfield installations.
I can tell you all these things from personal experience:
- They'll tell you how to get it out of the dash, and how to get door panels
off to replace speakers, etc. They know where the secret tabs and screws
- They'll give you a panel to fill the hole properly, if needed.
- They'll adjust their web site to only show you the components that will
fit in your car.
- They'll include the factory wiring harness, so you can wire the thing on
the bench under good light, instead of on the floor of the car looking up
into the darkness. Then you just take the prewired unit to the car and plug
- If you need special tools to remove your factory radio or the one you've
just bought, they'll include them.
- If your antenna has some nutty proprietary plug, they'll know, and they'll
send an adapter.
- If the speakers you bought need an adapter to properly fit your car,
they'll include those, too.
- They answer questions on the phone, and they're real knowledgeable.
- If there's a problem with your product, they'll replace it quick.
Only drawback is they'll never have the absolute lowest price you'll find,
but I've found over and over that their assistance is well worth a few bucks
more. I've bought probably a half dozen stereos from them, and I'm sure
that's where I'll go if I need another one.
