You got four speakers with small magnets to save weight and money that are full range with maybe a whizzer cone. Honda says its 160 watts into four channels, but you don't know at what frequency they took their measurements, so it probably more like 80 watts (20watts per channel) and don't forget the ANC is on,so those little speakers are already working.
Oh,and I imagine the audio budget for the 9th gen project was reduced to make room for the standard rear view camera (and other doodads that are now standard on the Accord). Something gotta give.
Solution. Go down to your local reputable car audio shop and have put some efficient aftermarket coax speakers and your system will sound much better than the 360 watt, 7 speaker rig that comes in the EX-L and Touring. If customers complain enough about the audio it will upgraded at the MMC. Honda upgraded the audio on Pilots at its MMC due to complaints.
The sport is an awesome car, see one in the Hermatite color.
