How to Choose the Correct Stereo Installation Kit for Your Car

There are many installation kits to help you install a new car stereo. However, they are not all the same. Some are made for particular makes and model so car, some are made for particular head unit sizes, and some are made according to other specifications. For this reason, you shouldn’t just buy any old installation kit expecting it to work for you. You need to make sure you buy the right kit for the car.



During the course of this article, we are going to teach you how to buy the correct car stereo installation kit for your stereo and car. By the time you reach the end of this article, you should have a good idea about the type of kit you should be buying.


Do Your Research

The first thing you need to do is your research. If you know which stereo you are buying, have a look online to see if there are any recommendations on the installation kit. Don’t take the first piece of advice as gospel, read multiple sources so that you can get a good idea about which is the right one and why it is the right one.


Here are a few things to bear in mind:


  • Some kits are designed for particular makes and models of stereos. Research the stereo that you are buying, rather than the make and model of the car. If you can’t find any information, then contact the manufacturer or a retailer that sells that model of stereo and ask for recommendations. Remember that the manufacturer might be bias and might advise that you only use their own bespoke kit.


  • Some kits are designer for certain areas in the car. For example, most of the kits work with head units that sit in the centre console on the dashboard. If you're placing the head unit somewhere else in the car, then you might need to look for a specialist kit, as a typical kit might not work.


Buy Your Kit from a UK-Based Seller

We assume that you are reading this article in the UK and so it is designed for a British audience. We recommend that you buy your car stereo installation kit from a UK-based seller because they will afford you certain privileges. Here are a few reasons why this is important:


  • In the UK, we are protected by consumer laws. This means that the kits need to conform to certain quality standards. In other words, they won’t let you down. If you buy from further afield, while the kits might be good, there’s also a risk that they won’t be, and if they’re not, then you run the risk of damaging your car stereo. It’s better to avoid the risks where necessary.


  • Finally, there may be some compatibility issues if you buy your kit from abroad. Just as the UK uses different types of electric plugs to many other countries, we also use different types of jack and fixtures and fittings.
