Had to snap off the tabs in the rear as they interfere with the back of the head unit. Required multiple attempts to adjust the depth. Screws also need to be a couple of mm longer.....

Not the best

Crutchfield customer from Florissant, CO on 4/22/2019

2009 Subaru Forester

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

While it comes with a variety of screws some aren't long enough. Kit is for both single & double din. You have to break off a plastic tab for double din, which doesn't always make the side bracket flush..hence the problem with the screw length

Pros: It's ok

Cons: Seems like I could have used the side brackets from the OEM radio..they were identical and metal... not plastic

Fits the car, but not the radio

Crutchfield customer from Old Saybrook, CT on 4/12/2019

2009 Subaru Impreza

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

Fitted in a Subaru Impreza Outback Sport 2009 so I could replace the dead OEM radio. The kit fits the car well, but the Axxera AD330 radio was a tight squeeze into the kit. I called technical support at Crutchfield (great service, btw!) who told me I had to remove some metal tabs from the radio unit (hmmm). Even after I got the unit fitted, the radio face plate is suppose to open down so that you can access the CD player. This kit blocked the face plate from opening. Despite multiple adjustments, the radio just does not fit properly into this kit. Very disappointed.

Pros: Fits teh car

Cons: Does not fit the radio!!

Terrible kit

Aaron from Deerfield, MA on 2/19/2019

2009 Subaru Forester

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

This is the worst dash kit I have EVER installed. There aren't enough holes on the side brackets so I couldn't bring my head unit out as far as I'd like it to be and the plastic feels cheap and bendy. The worst and most frustrating part about it is that the front bezel that goes around the head unit needs to be screwed into the side brackets. Sounds simple but the screw holes in the bezel are not threaded, the screws they provide are of very poor quality, and you need a very long and tiny screw driver to actually reach the little screws. I stripped two of the heads while trying to get them threaded in. All of the kits that I have installed just have little clips on the sides of the bracket for the bezel to clip into and there's no reason why this one couldn't be just like that. The only pros to this kit are; it fits in my car and it feels relatively sturdy once installed.

Pros: Pretty sturdy

Cons: Very poor design, flimsy plastic, poorly placed mounting holes

Plastic mounts that work fine. Getting the screws in can be a bit of a problem if you don't have a very small and long screwdriver. It also came with plastic tabs that had to be cut off and sanded down.

Pros: +worked

Used this to install a JVC double DIN receiver in my 2009 Forester. Easy to install and looks great. The plastic is a bit flimsy, but once attached to the head unit it is plenty rigid to securely hold the receiver in place.

Pros: Inexpensive, professional look.

Cons: Plastic is a bit flimsy.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

the concept is great, but they fail with the delivery. I purchased a Alpine unit with this kit, and if was very difficult to make fit correctly. the Alpine unit had a removable faceplate, and I'm not sure if they run a little larger than the standard. But it took several attempts and fighting with the kit to make it fit flush. Should have been a little bigger, more fogiving, then it wan. Almost impossible to get it to fit.

Pros: looks good, nice to have the storage cubby

Cons: way to small and tight, would not allow the Alpine head uit to fit propperly.

The mount kit barely fits into my Subaru and the panel won't lock into place and I can't adjust the position of the mount kit because the stereo barely fits jvc radio I bought for it. Either I installed the kit wrong or it's the wrong size for the radio.

Good Dash Kit, put in '09 Impreza

Cole from Saint Charles, MN on 12/23/2017

2009 Subaru Impreza WRX

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

Fairly simple assembly. The stereo is secured with a screw in each side. The screws came with my stereo, not the dash kit. Glad I still had them, since this was a reinstall into a different vehicle and I never used those screws with the prior vehicle's kit. The screws pass through the notches in the sides of the kit, so you can slide the stereo inward or outward a bit for aesthetic adjustment, and then tighten the screws to hold it firmly in position. Easy to install in the dash, too.

Pros: Does what it should

Cons: None

It fits perfectly into the double DIN pocket left by the OEM stereo unit. BUT, I had to file off some of the "pocket" edging so that I could get a snug fit into the bracket.

Pros: Perfect fit into double DIN pocket.

Cons: Lower "pocket" had to be trimmed to fit snug.

Worked great with my 2012 Subaru Forester. I installed a double-din stereo; popped out the old stereo, 4 screws, and disconnected the wires, then put on the two side mounts and bezel to the new stereo, then screwed that back in place.Very easy to install and looks great! Comes with the lower pocket if installing a single-din stereo.

Pros: - Easy to install - looks great - came with online instructions (not needed for me)

Cons: - None I can think of so far

the brackets fit perfectly and were easy to install. The 4 star rating is for the extreme flimsiness of the upper and bottom outer framing. The plastic is so cheap and bendy that I feel that even just touching it might break the frame. Aside from this it does what it is supposed to do.

Perfect fit in my Subaru

Alex from Long Grove, IL on 4/11/2017

2013 Subaru Forester

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

Perfect fit for replacing the stock radio in my 2013 Forester. Used it for a single DIN, 2 screws on each side hold the radio securely. The only part that's a little tricky is securing the side panels to the front with the small Phillips head screws. Don't tighten them down until you snap the storage pocket in place (contrary to instructions), and you need a long screwdriver to be able to clear the side panel for the final turns. Alternatively, I used a jewelers screwdriver that fit right against the panel, pushed down on the end and tightened the screw by turning the driver with a pliers - took a few turns but worked great. Radio fit in very nicely and looks great in the dash, no gaps or misalignment with the trim panel.

Pros: Fits great in dash Holds radio securely Adds storage pocket

Cons: Tightening assembly screws a little tricky but doable

Combines this with my alpine touchscreen unit for my 2012 Forester. It was a double-din unit so the pocket was not needed. Also the mounting brackets were not needed because the factory brackets worked just fine. The faceplate spacer looks fine but is just a tad too big in the width which makes the factory faceplate not sit quite flush to the dash but isnt the end of the world.

Pros: Gets the job done

Cons: Fitment isnt quite right

Crutchfield customer from Ridley Park, PA on 3/11/2017

2010 Subaru Forester

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

This Dash kit when used with the Sony XAV-AX100 CarPlay Receiver makes it difficult to turn the volume knob, only allowing the user to turn it in half circle increments; it basically take away form the receivers functionality; not cool. This is because for this particular dash kit, the receiver is not forward enough to relieve the sides of the dash from blocking the usage of the volume knob. If the dash kit allowed the unit to be Brought forward more it would get 5 stars.

Pros:

Cons: Makes Volume Knob Functionality difficult on Sony XAV-AX100. Sits to far back with Sony XAV-AX100 as well.

Decent Dash Kit

Matt from Victor, ID on 2/28/2017

2010 Subaru Forester

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

I agree with other reviewers regarding the flexible plastic. Assembling this dash kit is difficult because of the small screws, limited space, and need for a screwdriver with a long shaft and small diameter head. The dash kit "stiffened" up when I installed the deck. My application required mounting the deck without the metal sleeve and trim ring. Once installed, the dash kit seems solid and looks nice in my 2010 Subaru Forester. Crutchfield shipped my order Next Day Air so it would arrive by the estimated arrival date without asking. They also included DIN screws, a wire harness, this dash kit, a antenna adapter, and installation instructions. Thanks Crutchfield!

Pros: Looks Great.

Cons: Flimsy Plastic. Difficult to Assemble.

How do you mess up something so simple?

Charlie from Denver, CO on 12/27/2016

2008 Subaru Impreza

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

This is just a sloppy manufacturing job, there ar 4 screws that hold the frame to the part that screws into the stereo. These screws are nearly inaccessible unless you have specialty really thin tiny screwdrivers and if you do you better have some really strong fingers to get them tightened down. After about 45 minutes of struggling to get these screws in place then you have to put the tray or pocket whatever you want to call it in place, it doesn't fit very well and the plastic is bent now do to that. It looks fine now that it's installed but way to make something so simple such a pain.

Pros: .... looks nice after installation is complete?

Cons: A major pain to assemble and the plastic is cheap.

Cheap plastic

Christopher from Columbia, SC on 10/20/2016

2010 Subaru Impreza

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

You will need a very small screwdriver (think eyeglasses repair kit size) to attach the trim piece to the 2 mounting brackets. Luckily I had a very nice set of micro tools. Crisis averted. However, when screwing in the 3rd tiny screw, the hole it screws into simply broke off. Ended up using the metal factory brackets on my 2010 Impreza and just putting the trim piece over the stereo with the car trim holding it in. Works for now but I'll probably look for a better quality one to make it look nice and prevent rattling.

Pros: It came free with my stereo

Cons: It was too flimsy and broke before I even attached it to the radio.

Too flimsy for my liking

Ian P from Newport Beach, CA on 7/13/2016

2013 Subaru Impreza WRX

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

I bought this as part of a kit to install a new Kenwood DDX9703S into my 2013 Subaru Impreza WRX since a standard double-DIN head unit leaves about a half inch gap on the left and right side in the dash. However, this piece is also used to mount the head unit to the car. The plastic side pieces, which attach to the head unit and to the car, are too flimsy for my liking. This flimsy-ness is made worse by details on this head unit: the screw attachment locations on the sides of the DDX9703S are recessed a bit, so since these pieces are plastic I couldn't tighten down the attachments enough without fears of damaging the plastic mounting pieces. I ended up not using this, instead swapping on the metallic mounting plates from the stock head unit, and purchasing a full trim piece made for this model Impreza that reduces the dash opening to a standard double-DIN size.

Pros:

It only takes 4 little screws to put this together, but those screws were a royal pain to put in place. Once I got it finished, it was a perfect fit in my dash and holds the headunit well. I'm holding off on 5 stars because of those difficult little screws.

Pros: Perfect fit in my WRX dash, holds headunit securely, I like the little storage pocket under the radio.

Cons: Those little screws had me cussing like a sailor!

While replacing factory head unit with aftermarket piece, Crutchfield supplied this kit. Some instructions called for keeping the OE brackets, but that left a poor finished product. Discarded the factory brackets and went with the kit. It turned out quite well. No gaps.

Pros: Good fit and finish.

Cons: Plastic (wish there were other options like wood or carbon fiber)

AI SB-K926 Dash Kit for Subarus

Badwrench from San Diego, CA on 3/21/2016

2011 Subaru Forester

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

The SB-K926 kit for Subarus is pretty straight forward in design. The product is entirely plastic, and must be assembled before installation. Overall, the kit is fine, but is a little flimsy (until your head unit is bolted in). The only issue for me is that you will need a small screwdriver that is at least 6" in length before the handle in order to reach the assembly screws. I do like the addition of some longer deck mounting screws since most decks only come with very short ones.

Pros: Simple installation.

Cons: A little flimsy. Need of a long but small screwdriver to assemble.

It does the job it needed to do and looks good once installed, but it was very awkward to handle and assemble-poor design.

Pros: Good dash fit in factory opening, looks nice

Cons: Difficult to assemble the sides to the front-poor access to screws. Had to fiddle a bit to get it aligned with dash holes. It's thin plastic, I be worried about it breaking easily on a cold day.

Dash Kit

jrkeane1 from Charlotte, NC on 1/11/2016

2011 Subaru Forester

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

The kit provided was good (my application used the double DIN trim piece), it does help fill the void in my Subaru that was left by the aftermarket stereo's provided trim kit. However, it is very plain looking and doesn't match the look of the plastic in my car. And the kit uses flexible plastic, even the mounting bracket, which is concerning about the longevity of the plastic holding up over time. Also, because of the design, the stereo sits recessed a bit, which would be ok if the stereo itself didn't have a recessed screen. So it sits back in the dash a bit more than I'd like.

Pros: Worked well with my car

Cons: Possible flimsy plastic could break over time, doesn't match style of plastic on the dash very well and it recesses the head unit a bit too far.

Works, but flimsy!

Matt W. from Syracuse, New York on 12/29/2015

2010 Subaru Forester

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

It fit in my dash and it works but it seems far less substantial than the steel mounts that came with the factory unit. I fear that a thief will make short work of this mount! If I was making this purchase all over again, I would buy a double din head unit so that I could use the factory mount instead of putting this flimsy plastic mount in my dash! The quality of this product is simply not of the same level as the factory mount and the new head unit it holds.

Pros: It fits.

Cons: Very flimsy. Will not slow down or deter thieves.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

We installed the Kenwood KDC-BT362U in my daughters 2008 Subaru Impreza. It worked fine but we had to trim out some plastic inside to get it to sit straight. There is a little gap between the mount and the stereo where it dips in the middle but it isn't enough to pull out and return. We just installed it and as of now it seems to look like it is supposed to be there.

Pros: Provides a cubby in the space the stereo doesn't use

Cons: Could be a little sturdier but good enough

Josh from Arizona on 9/8/2015

This fits perfectly in my 2010 Subaru Forester. I didn't need the metal sleeve that goes around the receiver (which most other adapter kits do) and I also didn't need the collar that goes around the face plate either. Gives it a nice "it's always been there" type look.

Pros: Fits very nicely. Looks like it belongs there.

Cons: wish it would've told me that I didn't need the sleeve and collar. Wasted like 30 minutes figuring it out (really not a big deal though).

Missing parts

Crutchfield customer from Michigan on 8/3/2015

2014 Subaru Impreza WRX

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

When I received this kit, I was annoyed to discover the screws which were supposed to come with it were missing. I ended up going to the hardware store to find some screws which would work. This kit was included in my order at no charge, but that doesn't mean Crutchfield should let their quality control standards slacken. Aside from the missing screws, the kit more or less fit where it was supposed to, but I didn't feel much confidence with regard to its sturdiness. Had I known this complimentary kit would be as it was, I would have ordered a higher quality one and thrown this one away.

Pros:

Cons:

Crutchfield response on 8/3/2015
After researching this review, the installation kit for this customer's Subaru does not include screws. It's meant to be installed re-using the factory Subaru screws that secured the factory radio. The customer's Pioneer receiver also includes screws that enable this receiver to be attached to this installation kit's brackets.

Crutchfield is great because they'll send you everything you need along with your stereo automatically so you won't waste time poking around the internet looking for what you need. This mounting gear fit perfectly into my Subaru Impreza 2008. The plastic that goes around the stereo on the dash looks great and gives it a seamless fit. I actually used the sidewall mounting harness from my original stock stereo instead of the plastic ones just because I preferred the metal.

Pros: easy to install and all the parts you'll needs.

Cons: The harness is plastic and I would prefer for it to be metal.

Fills the space, but not without some shortcomings

bak from Montana on 4/21/2015

2011 Subaru Impreza

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

Be careful when intially setting this up, as the side panels are attached to the fascia with the smallest of screws -- easy to strip out or simply pull out while trying to fit the compartment. My suggestion: Tighten down one side (don't overtighten!), then leave the other side loose. You'll also find that some single-DIN radios won't sit flush against the fascia with the compartment installed. You'll have to set the radio back...not ideal in some situations involving radios with a removable face.

Pros: -Fills the space

Cons: -Rather flimsy -Compartment is too large, some radios will not seat flush against the fascia

Seems the Pioneer DEH-X8600BH is a tad oversized for this kit. Had to trim the cubby on the top and man handle the head units metal bracket into place. You can see a little bit of the metal frame which I just ended up painting black. Looks very clean even though I had to cut it down to fit. Was only able to use two screws to secure the bracket back in the dash. Even with two screws missing the unit is very secure and doesn't move at all. Overall a good product.

The kit fit my 2013 wrx, but my new headunit, Pioneer DEH-X6700BS, did not fit. The new deck was a little too wide and tall. I had to trim off some of the sides and the top of the "pouch" thing (don't know what to call it). Even after I trimmed this the deck is pushing the sides of the kit outward and I can't put in all four screws. Overall if your new headunit fits I guess this is an okay product for being free with a new deck purchase.

makes installing stereo a breeze. the only complaint is the two upper screws that hold the front on are behind the mount bracket and are hard to install, you need to put the front on FIRST as to slightly bend the plastic mounts to allow the screws to be inserted in the front. if you have an extra long shaft number one phillpips then it wouldn't be a problem.

Subaru dash kit for 2010 WRX

Rick M from Beckley WV on 8/27/2013

2010 Subaru Impreza WRX

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

This dash install kit seems to be well made and fits nicely in the dash without a large gap around the vehicle dash. The texture and color of the kit goes well with the interior colors of my car. This dash kit does not seem to fit as well and it isn't as easy to assemble as the metra brand kits I have used in the past. That is the only reason for 4 stars. Overall this is a really nice product and had I not been used to metra I would consider this a 5 star product.

Pros: Relatively easy to install and looks pretty nice once installed.

Cons: Assembling the side plates to the front trim ring is somewhat difficult and the plastic seems a little softer than a metra brand dash kit. The gaps seem a little larger than on metra kits I have used in the past on different vehicles.

Fits cleanly and securely. However, does not use your HU's DIN sleeve, and does not use your HU's trim ring. The result is a think gap all around the HU's face panel.

This was a great install. Very easy. This dash kit was a perfect fit for the OEM dash of the '08 impreza. It looks likes the car rolled off the dealership lot with this stereo installed. There is no noise of the stereo shifting around while driving at any speed.

Pros: easy to install, great fit, factory look

Cons: none

American International SB-K926 Dash Kit

Looks like it was from the factory. Fits perfect, the only improvement would be to the instruction sheet that came with it so that it wouldn't have taken me four tries to get it right.

Pros: Looks factory perfect.

Cons: Needs clearer instructions.

At first I thought I wasn't going to like it based on how flimsy it kind of felt but once the aftermarket radio went in and with the use of a little tape (to tape down some plastic that was bending to the head unit), it was nice and sturdy and fit very well. Very easy to install and very nice looking.

Pros: Easy to install, comes with all parts, looks great

Cons: Some pieces are a little flimsy, but nothing a little tape can't fix

Simplifies factory like install

It's been a while since I've done a car stereo install, but remembered how easy it was when I bought my last deck via Crutchfield over 15 years ago ... so when my daughter asked if I could help her with an new deck ... I remembered how Crutchfield had brackets and connectors to simplify the installation. The instructions are a key to how to get things opened up.

Pros:

Cons:

American International SB-K926 Dash Kit

MIke from Pittsburgh, PA on 1/5/2013

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

This adapter was not good. It does fit and hold my radio but that is the end of the good part. It is made from plastic that feels cheap and the texture does not match the rest of my dash. You have to use these tiny screws to put it together so make sure you have a very long and very thin Phillips head screw driver. Crutchfield sent me a dash adapter for a Legacy by mistake and it was 100 times better than this thing.

Pros: It fits in the dash and holds a radio

Cons: poor build quality and crappy finish

Inorder to fit to the 2012 impreza cut the plastic tabs off and screw in the existing mounts from the stock radio then install. Very clean

Pros: Sturdy

Cons: Not an exact fit but can be made to work

American International SB-K926 Dash Kit

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Used to fit a Pioneer AVH-P3400BH, a double DIN unit, into a 2012 Subaru Forester.

Pros: Fits. Looks reasonable.

Cons: To fit a double din you have to cut out the center bar with a sharp knife. It would be better if the bar was made to detach in some way (e.g. snap-in / snap-out).

Q
Does this include screws for the mounting bracket?
[ Tommy  Oct 01, 2015 ]
2 answers
A
Most manufactures have strayed away from providing screws and leaned more towards being as skimpy as they can because car audio isn't sleeping like it use to die to the fact most newer cars have everything. They are cutting costs
[ Jason  Jul 03, 2017 ]
A
No, you'll use the screws either from your headunit or that were previously used with the stock radio.

will this be useful for a pioneer avh-x3600bhs on a 2014 subaru STI?

A
You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you.
