Video: Inside Crutchfield's Product Research Team

How we know so much about the products we sell

Our Product Research team examines one of every car and home audio/video product that we have in our warehouse. Check out the steps involved in databasing a product, and where to find the info the team gathers when you're shopping at

For car audio products, this product data combines with the data we collect from vehicles to create our vehicle-fit database (as seen in our video about the Crutchfield MasterSheet™). And that's how we know whether or not a product fits your car.

My name's Russ. I work in product research. Generally as soon as products are brought into our warehouse for the first time, we'll get one copy of it, that item brought over so we can research it. Well, the first thing I do is usually inventory what's in the box. We have a place on our website and in our internal applications for our sales team and tech department and list all of the parts in the box as I take them out. So we'll take real world dimensions with any included accessories, feet, grills, harnesses, cables attached to to that product, so you'll know it'll fit. And then start writing up information about it based off the manufacturer's website, product manuals, any information we're given for it. We want to know definitively whether something fits or it doesn't. Like kind of being the, the guy behind the scenes providing the information to our sales staff and our tech staff. I've always been into audio, car and home and pro audio especially. So it's an interesting field for me and I enjoy working in it. It kind of all starts with us. We do, you know, the best we can to make sure that information is put in there correctly and promptly. So when a customer calls in, even on a brand-new product, you know, we have that information readily available for them and our staff.

    Hi Bob - check out the Scosche HookUp Premium Adapter Kit, which features USB-C and RCA connections. Unfortunately it's only 4 feet long, so it might not work for your situation. If you have any other questions give one of our Advisors a call!

    I've purchased items from Crutchfield over a many years spread. I have always been impressed with the supplemental adaptive pieces and info until most recently. I have some findings and constructive criticism regarding several of the Metra kits received for equipment I installed in a 2019 Hyundai Elantra. if you are interested, I'm happy to pass them along to you.

    As you all may be aware, the FCC is shutting down the 2g cell signal. Is the experts at Crutchfield working with any companies to make a device to connect to our GM vehicles to upgrade the service? This affects my onstar on my GM vehicle.

    trying to find the "post a review", this is best I could find. Just got the Clarion xc2110 sub amp in the mail today. It will eventually go in a 2001 Dodge ex cab Ram 1500. In the house, its powering a Skar 10in comp sub (4 ohm) sealed box. Took a few min to tune the crossover to my liking, Listen to just about every type of music from classic rock, old school hip hop, 80's - 2000s rock, punk, grunge some metal. And oh yes, a little Country and Western.. (Blues Brothers scene) Still have my Kenwood KAC 5001PS, its too much for the Skar subs even 2 of them.. ;-)
