I am in the market for a V6 Navi Coupe and yesterday once again was looking at a local dealer, just for grins they had a nice used 12 Coupe there and I wanted to demo a C.D. of mine in both, frankly the 12 blows away the 14, I was hoping it wouldn't be that noticeable but there was quite a difference, the high end and voice just had much more clarity, and the low end? We had the bass and the subwoofer turned up max on the 14, on the 12 I had the bass at midpoint and the sub at max, if I turned up the bass any more it was just way too strong. The salesman was with me and he drives a 13 Coupe, he said he is going to look into aftermarket speakers after what I showed him. So it looks like Honda really went substandard on the 9the gen, looks like I will have to do at the very least a full speaker upgrade on the 14 if I do decide to get one. I just don't understand why Honda went so substandard, maybe their marketing shows people don't listen to much music in their cars anymore?
