Find what Fits your car

Will that piece of gear fit your vehicle?
We've climbed into thousands of vehicles to find out.

You'll save money when you install it yourself — and we can help you do it

Whatever your level of experience, we can help with your installation — and save you even more money. Here's how:

MasterSheet custom instructions

Free vehicle-specific
installation instructions

When you buy a receiver or speakers from us, we'll send you a set of installation instructions, such as our detailed, illustrated MasterSheets, which we create from our own meticulous research. Instructions are available for most vehicles.

Installation gear for receivers

Free stereo installation gear
worth up to C$50

Buy a car stereo from us, and you'll save up to C$50 on the installation gear package you need, depending on the car you drive and the stereo you buy – in many cases, you’ll get the package free. Installation gear available for most vehicles.

Installation gear for speakers

We have installation gear for speakers, too

When you buy a set of speakers from us, we'll make sure you get the wiring harnesses and mounting brackets you need for your vehicle. They're available for most vehicles.

How we help you shop for car A/V

When you select your vehicle on our site, you'll be able to shop from filtered lists of the products, such as receivers and speakers, that we know fit or work with your vehicle. You'll also be able to find more ”universal“ products, like amplifiers and subwoofers, that can be installed in just about any vehicle.

Look for these symbols when you're shopping

A green check means that a product fits your car's factory openings without requiring any modification to your car.

A yellow warning triangle indicates that a product will fit if you make a minor modification, such as trimming plastic in the dash or drilling new holes for speakers in your door panels.

A red caution sign means that a product is larger than one or more dimensions of a factory mounting location (for speakers, key dimensions include more than just cone size) and will not fit.

Just about every car on the road these days features a factory stereo. To help you find compatible aftermarket replacements, we've disassembled the dashes and door panels of tens of thousands of vehicles, measured the spaces where these factory stereos and speakers fit, and loaded our findings into our massive fit database. Our system then compares these measurements to the dimensions of a given receiver or speaker to determine of the product will fit in the factory location.

Compatible products

Sometimes we say that a product works with your vehicle. This means that it doesn't necessarily fit in a factory location, but that it's designed to be compatible with your vehicle's electronics or interior design. Compatible products include products like adapters (for Bluetooth or smartphone control, for example) that plug into your vehicle's stereo wiring harness and device holders mounts in a specific spot on the dash.

We also carry a wide range of products that are designed to work exclusively with specific vehicles. See below to learn more.

The Crutchfield KitFinder

At Crutchfield, we know that if you're going to install your own stereo, you'll need two things: to know that the one you're interested in fits in your car, and to get the installation parts and instructions that make the job easier and give you professional results. Unless, of course, you're an experienced installer and are doing a fully custom job, in which case, we'd like you to share the results with us!

When you shop with us, you'll see:

  • Filtered lists of stereos that we know fit in your dash
  • The installation parts required to install the stereo you're interested in, plus the parts that let you keep certain advanced factory features, all bundled in easy-to-add packages

With most orders, you'll also get a set of vehicle-specific instructions, such as our exclusive MasterSheets, which offer step-by-step guidance and detailed illustrations or photos, created from the info gathered by our vehicle research team. They're available for thousands of vehicles.

Shopping for car speakers

  • Filtered lists of speakers that satisfy the depth, diameter, and height requirements of your vehicles factory speaker openings
  • A breakdown of speakers available for specific locations in your car.

    These can include locations that don't have factory speakers, but can be adapted with certain mounting adapters, such as pods that let you mount speakers in your kick panels.

    We won't list a given location if no speaker option is available for it. When you use Outfit My Carsm, you'll see the kinds of essential factory stereo and speaker information our research team gathers.

  • Alerts to add the required brackets and harnesses to your cart — these are free when you buy any set of speakers from us Speaker orders also qualify you to receive the vehicle-specific installation instructions we offer.

Custom fit products

Many manufacturers have designed products that work directly with specific vehicles. These include:

  • “Direct” replacements for certain products, such as speakers.
  • Products that take advantage of unused space in the car, such as subwoofer enclosures custom-designed to fit in places that don't sacrifice trunk or cargo spaces.
  • Products that plug directly into your car's wiring and work with your factory stereo, such as Bluetooth hands-free adapters or sound processors.

Universal fit products

Many car A/V products we describe as “universal,” in that there aren't dedicated factory locations for them. With many of these products, you'll have to check your vehicle for available space, and carefully plan your installation in advance. The most common include:

  • Amplifiers Amps require three things: a mounting location, power wiring directly to your car's battery, and wiring for musical signal. You'll need to check the dimensions of the amps you're interested in, which we provide, then measure the available space you have in your vehicle. Mounting locations can include underneath seats or in the trunk or cargo area. We'll show you the size of wires you'll need when you make your purchase, and we can offer tips online and by phone for wiring strategies.
  • Subwoofers Just about all subwoofers need to be mounted in an enclosure, which then fits in an available spot in your car. As with an amplifier, you'll need to measure space in your vehicle to see if the subwoofer you're interested in will fit, while leaving you enough cargo space for your needs. If you choose a powered subwoofer, we'll make sure you get the right power wiring; if you choose a sub and box, we'll recommend the right size of speaker wire, which you'll connect to the external amp that'll send power to the sub.
  • Portable products such as GPS navigators, radar detectors, and dash cams. You'll just want to make sure that you have a dash or windshield large enough to accommodate the mounting systems of these sorts of products without interfering with your sight or operation of the vehicle.
