American International HON-K817 Dash Kit

Crutchfield customer from Edmond, OK on 7/16/2019

2008 Honda CRV EX

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This is a good product with many extra parts that weren't needed for my application. I installed this in a 2008 Honda CR-V. The trim pieces have a texture that is a perfect match to factory. The only negative and it's minor is the spacer that goes on each side between the stereo and the mounting kit. They kept falling out before I could get the screws in to hold them in place. I decided a few small dabs of silicone gasket material, (something I had already) any glue would work between the mounting kit and the spacer was the solution. Everything thing fit perfectly once I figured that out.

Good Dash kit

Jeremy from Greensboro, NC on 2/12/2019

2011 Honda CRV EX

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I've used a lot of after market replacement dash kits, this one was very easy to work with. The instructions were a little cryptic, but the pictures helped and the fact that things could really only go together one way and line up right, really helped. I did find that my Pioneer face is catching on the plastic inset when it's retracting after opening up to let you put a dvd in. I'm going to need to do some filing or something to keep that from happening.

Pros: Worked great, well designed, did what it needed to do.

Cons: Wish the cowl around the radio fit the Pioneer a little better so it didn't require the filing to allow retraction.

Good design but clips would not clip into dash. Too short? Have had 3 other radio kits that worked well but this is larger radio. Not Crutchfield's fault at all they didn't manufacture it.

Skip this one - it will break

Phil from Purcellville, VA on 12/7/2018

2010 Honda CRV EX

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Honestly, this dash kit is junk. The mount brackets for the sides are plastic and attach to the faceplate with small tabs - that expectedly break. Very flimsy until you get it mounted to the stereo and then it's a gamble if the plate will break putting it into the dash. Get the Schoshe kit - much better and more like the factory mount.

Pros: Faceplate matches interior decently.

Cons: Small tabs are flimsy and will break easily.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

needed a new receiver for my daughters 2009 Honda CRV, I have purchased several products over the years from Crutchfield, so I went back. Wasn't completely clear on the product as the pictures on the web were different with the interior of the m model they showed. I started a chat online and got all the answers I needed to complete the purchase in less than half an hour. Fast forward to installation, had trouble figuring out the mounting kit, called the service line and the tech used my smart phone and a video conference app to verify what I was doing and fixed my confusion. Installation complete!! The only thing I would say is they told me I needed to buy an installation tool kit for the install that I did not end up needing. However, to their credit, I called after the install was complete and they credited me for the kit. This is why I always go to Crutchfield!

Trim work well but the trim ring directly around the radio has no way to secure it. Though it fits rather snugly it can be pulled out easily.

Not as multi-purpose compatible as one would think.Used only faceplate

Erik from Linden, NJ on 3/13/2018

2007 Honda CRV EX

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This review is for 3rd Gen Honda CRV and Boss BN965BLC Head unit this Dash kit was ordered for. First, the kit came in so many pieces it made my head spin just eyeballing all the pieces and made me grab the included paper to see how this needs to be attached to the head unit since there were couple plates to serve as, spacers? Second, upon following the simple, non-describing single and only picture on the paper, rather figuring it on my own I noticed that the mounting brackets overlapped the rear fuse on the head unit making it tilt vertically under about 10 degree angle on one side. The other rear side of the mounting bracket covered and thus blocked the radio port for the plug - due to that, there comes negative impression already, considering pliers will need to be used in order to break the plastic in both locations preventing the head unit fitting . Third, the spacers made no sense whatsoever as to how it should be placed and screwed into the radio yet they were needed even when using double din head unit since there were gaps and tilted the entire assembly inwards at the bottom sides of the head unit. Luckily, I could use hondas stock radio metal brackets, screws even, Boss did excellent job on pre-drilling holes to possibly all the cars stock mounting brackets. Cant say that about American International dash kits except the face plate which is all I needed at the end. Credit to BOSS though as they also provided detachable frame plate which was very needed

Pros: Face plate matches cars mounting openings right on spot. Retains stock looks for the vehicles dash even though the color is little off, tad brighter but very minor.

Cons: Its cheap partially fortified plastic making it brittle, not a fan of this type. Lacks complete installation instructions. Incompatible with Boss BN965BLC and I assume with plenty of other head units unless breaking rear sections of the bracket with pliers. Ended up using only faceplate and frame, 2 pieces out of 8 thanks to boss, saving lots of time and effort. Pricey, for double din options, American International should only sell faceplates with display frames for half the price.

American International HON-K817 Dash Kit

Crutchfield customer from Mckinney, TX on 2/4/2018

2007 Honda CRV EX

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The dash kit is very close to the OEM finish. It didn't line up completely, but the vehicle (2007 Honda CR-V) has 165,000 miles so it's not like I'm worried about resale value. IMO the instructions were very poor. For example, you'll need cut off the little "knobs" from the molding process to get the sides to snap together.

Pros: Looks good, follows the lines of the dash so it looks very similar to OEM

Cons: Poor instructions that leave out important details.

This product does work as intended but it's cheap plastic and you're actually paying for extra parts (single and double din install). It seems to match the dash but not perfectly. I hope it doesn't fade over time. Not a great value but a necessary component.

Pros: fits well

Cons: cheap plastic, comes with extra parts not needed

Mounting Kit

David from Knoxville, TN on 8/7/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Installed a new head unit as an upgrade to my daughter's 2009 Honda CR-V, and this kit helped a lot. However, the screws provided for attaching the mounting brackets to the head unit were too short to even go through the mounting bracket of the kit, much less actually attach the brackets to the head unit. You have to find/cut to length your own mounting screws.

Pros: Face trim looks like OE material Mounting brackets match OE mount locations

Cons: Screws to attach mounting brackets to head unit are too short to use.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This dash kit did the job for me, but it's pretty cheap plastic, and the instructions are pretty awful. It didn't affect the security of my receiver being installed, but one of the tabs that clicks into the frame that goes around the face of the receiver was nearly broken off. The OEM stereo had metal brackets securing it to the dash, so it's a wonder why those wouldn't be made, and if they are made, recommended.

Pros: Did the job, but...

Cons: Cheap plastic, directions are not clear.

The mounting materials worked well once I figured out the process. The instructions are junk, referring to a non-existent image and using inconsistent terminology. I installed a single DIN Sony MEX-N5200BT.

Fit in my 2011 cr-v, Only modification was snapping off the middle plastic piece used for single din installation and the piece on the back, easy by looking at instructions. Finished product looks good, like it came in the car.

Pros: easy assembly, fits perfectly, looks almost seamless,(little space all around, veeeeeery little, not horrible, just had to mention it, fyi)

Cons: Says to file down after removing extra plastic pieces, you really dont need to, doesn't affect installation.

It fits in 2010 CRV

Brendan from Whitestown, IN on 3/26/2017

2010 Honda CRV LX

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Fit and finish in dash is good. Dash clips fell off to never never land behind the dash, it's ok because they really don't hold anything it seems. Dislike any kit I have to break/cut parts off of but that's because it's a one mold for all design and the parts are all hidden by the bezel (user must trim the parts that would support the single din areas to install a double din radio) The front bezzle (cover around the radio area you press in last) could be a little tighter fit, on my older Panasonic 3200 it had a small gap at the top, seems to be hidden now it's in. In general though we will see as time passes if it needs a little dab of glue to hold in as it's mostly just a pressure fit with no real clips. The install instructions are good, but printing them out was a pain (had to sink to fit letter size paper), be nice if they included a hard copy like the old days. For the money it is worth it I guess. Installed in 2010 CRV base model with a Panasonic 3200 DVD radio

Pros: Fits Works Price Working with Crutchfield is still the easiest

Cons: Dash clips fall off if you ever need to remove Front double din bezel could be a better fit Trimming required for double din install

It did the job and it came free with the receiver.

Pros: I fills the hole and allows you to mount the after market radio in the car. It does not squeak or rattle when going down the road.

Cons: The plastic is not an exact form to the surrounding dash. It is slightly protruding above the surface in the middle and slightly recessed at the corners. It also did not allow me to use the metal mounting frame that came with the radio. To add options to the back of the radio I will have to disassemble the dash like it was first time install.

Fits the car well. The color and texture of the plastic trim matches the adjacent trim in the car. Once I assembled it it was easy to install. The directions were my only gripe. They are horrible. The first figure (the one for attaching the sides) mentioned in the directions isn't actually there. That was a little frustrating, but once I figured it out on my own it was pretty easy to do the rest.

Pros: Quality product. Fits perfectly in my car perfectly.

It does not spruce up your dash in terms of appearance, but it works for my new car stereo. Perfect fit, and the additional compartment is a plus. The back screw is a little long and protrudes slightly within the additional compartment but is not obvious.

Pros: It fits and provides additional compartment for CDs or even the remote or your phone.

Cons: No glaring negative features as of this writing.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

It took some trial and error to put things together, the instructions could have been a little clearer. Interestingly enough, when everything was done I actually ended up just using the double din bezel. i had the adapter put together and found I needed longer bolts to mount the radio. I was getting ready to go get them, and noticed that the Alpine double din radio actually fit perfectly in the existing frame from the Honda, it just needed a bezel. I took the one that came with the kit, trimmed off the mounting tabs, added 2 drops of superglue and was done :)

Pros: Pretty good construction Fit both the radio and the space in the Honda

Cons: instructions could be clearer radio mounting bolts were too short

The instructions are incomplete, and wrong in some ways. It's unclear how to attach some items, there is no "Figure F" to refer to, and I'm supposed to attach a rear support bracket that's not included. I'm supposed to make one? Might as well make the entire kit. The screws that came with the radio don't have the reach to fit thru this new bracket. The kit screws don't hold tight.

Pros: Can be made to work

Cons: Essentially, pretty bad fit, and poor instructions.

Good produce

The fit and finish is good but not perfect when compared to the original Honda radio frame. There is a slight warp to the frame that is that can be seen when it is installed against the existing dashboard panels but it is not a big deal. The instructions supplied by the American International Company are poorly written and hard to follow, I had to re-read them several times and work with the part on the radio for a while before it made sense. The frame assembly instructions were separate from the Crutchfield MasterSheet instructions. In contrast, Crutchfield's instructions to disassemble and reassemble the dashboard panels on the MasterSheet were very clearly written. Too bad Crutchfield didn't write the instructions for the frame assembly.

Pros: Low cost, overall satisfactory frame.

Cons: Poorly written instructions.

Poor instructions caused headaches

The instructions and associated illustrations were so poor it took me longer to figure out how to fit the correct bits together than it did to take apart the dash and install the new receiver. If you have not done this before and / or do not know if you have a DIN or ISO size receiver, you can try randomly fitting the bits together....statistically it can take between 5 and 60 minutes....but hey, you may get lucky! Better that the manufacturer take a lesson....and if there is a completely impractical pictorial instruction, only then add words.

Pros: Once installed fit nicely and appearance is consistent with the rest of car dash

Cons: Very poor assembly instructions.

Easy

Easy to assemble and install, but the finish doesn't quite match and the attachment points are plastic instead of metal, which makes me wonder if it might not crack and break over time.

Pros: Easy to assemble, fits perfectly.

Cons: Color and texture aren't quite right, somewhat flimsy feeling.

This kit did not provide and exact fit for our 2009 Honda CR-V Ex. However our installer was able to file and sand it to a flawless fit. The result is excellent.

Pros: after installing, it matches trim in car

Cons: needed resizing to fit
