Aftermarket Audio System

Taking a simple survey that may not apply to all. Have you replaced your audio/speakers since you have purchased you vehicle? If so, then what and why did you replace it with and are you pleased?

I have done nothing to the audio system. I think it sounds fine.

Yep. Went with a simple aftermarket system. Memphis audio 2 ways in the doors and the rear deck with a small 10" enclosed sub with amp. Also added sound deadening in the doors and on the rear deck.

I wanted something with better mids/highs and more bass and that's essentially what I got (maybe a little too much bass but it's set up so I can control the sub output using the factory HU).

What size fits in the rear deck - 6.5 or 6x9?

6.5" fits although I think you can get 6.75" in there with the proper bracket. Scosche makes a bracket for honda that you can use although in my case, we just cut out the old speaker coils and reused the Honda bracket after some modifications.

Added an audio control lc7i to feed a boston acoustics 4 channel amp. Currently only using channel 3&4 bridged to power a sony 12" sub in a ported box. Made and carpeted a custom amp rack. Polk components to come for the front and swap to an Alpine mono amp for the sub. (Spring time mod). Also added sound deadening to all 4 doors and trunk. Love the results so far. Also disabled ANC and set DSP to flat. The premium system was not premium enough. Although the sub is a bit boomy due to the ported box I like it. Only problem is it takes up a lot of space.

We could fit 6.75 in the front also, correct? With the correct bracket?
