    I had seen many people rave about Crutchfield but never understood why they rated so high since the price wasn't always the best (usually MSRP).
    I bought some speakers for my girlfriend's RAV4 from Crutchfield. They weren't the cheapest place but the price included adapters for fitment, and a harness that plugged into the stock connectors. Plus they include vehicle-specific instructions for removing panels to get to the speakers. Made the job very easy.

    That and the website is very good for finding which components fit.

    I bought my HU from them, they saved me some money by including the wire harness and the Tacoma In Dash kit. I also got free shipping on my purchase. Great place to buy car audio components.

    I've made a few purchases from them in the past and I can always count on their customer service and instructions and like you say, they're not the cheapest. But, when you have questions, you can speak to someone you can understand.

    Crutchfield is just great. Not only for the reasons already stated, but their web site's usability is second to none

    yea I've used crutchfield for along time now. actually the system thats in my truck now is the first one ever that i haven't purchased exclusively through them. i was able to find better deals elsewhere this go round. the best part of crutchfield is the stores.. both of their retail stores are within an hour of me.. and i just love picking up all the stuff you guys send back for half the price :D

    Crutchfield has a satisfaction guarantee as well. I was able to send back my HU which I hated on day 30 of the 30-day guarantee got 100% of cost back to me and was able to get a new one ASAP. Will definitely order more from Crutchfield!

    Ditto on everything said so far...

    I have not bought from them in 10 years because I never had a need to put anything in a car in 10 years...

    I bought everything for my 2010 DC from them and all the extras, Customer service, free shipping plus I got a discount on a few items because I bought open box...So all in all I did great on price and product!!
