Most factory radios use a standard antenna plus but sometimes you run into a case when the manufacturer changes the plug a now you need this adapter. I didn't even know I needed this and the employees at Crutchfield told me what I needed and explained why. This is a great product and did I mention it is free when you purchase a radio from Crutchfield !

Pros: It's a must have to change your radio It's free with purchase of a radio Inexpensive if you only need the adapter

Cons: None.....

compatible in fitment. no go in particular car.

Part was suggested for a 2002 lesabre install. the oem antenna cable has no extra length and use of this adapter on a radio that has the antenna port on the opposite side will result in poor reception. even though it is compatible in fitment the part is not recommended for this vehicle. find an adapter with 6" extension

Pros: Part is functional and fits both ends

Cons: part does not allow antenna cable to reach to radio

Crutchfield said I needed it, and as always, they rock. My wife says that her new Kenwood head unit FM radio sounds better than stock, (she loves to listen to the FM), and I've heard a few replacement head unit "bad reception / fidelity" horror stories, so I'm extremely relieved for this swap to work out so well. Thanks, Crutchfield! (1997 Mercedes SL320)

Antenna adapter does the job

R Wood from NC on 7/24/2016

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

An antenna adapter that does what it says it will, and is priced right (in my case, it was included for free). Snaps right in and accepts the Motorola antenna connector.

Pros: - Does the job - Positive fit

Cons: - None

Works as advertised. The antenna plug was hard to get off the adapter when I needed to adjust some other wires, but I guess that's probably a good thing that it's hard to get off.

Pros: Works well, fits perfectly.

You need a flexible cable adapter. Adapter does not work in Oldsmobile Aurora 2001-2003 because the antenna cable from the car is in a fixed mount.

Pros: Cheap, if it works and does convert the European connection to the American one.

Cons: Does not function in 2001 - 2003 Oldsmobile Aurora.

Why is Crutchfield asking for a review on this? It is dumb simple to install and works as advertized. Only problem you could have is not correctly identifying the system you are replacing and the system you are installing. The adapter has to match both.

Pros: Easy&simple

Cons: None
