Rear speakers:
2014 Sport CVT - $7.15.
2013 Sport CVT - $40.80.

That is odd. The front speakers are the same though, $40.80.

this is the same as 2013 sport as well? if not, then i'll probably consider replacing the stock speakers on my 2013 sport.

And that's with the manufacturers inflated prices. I can only imagine how little they must pay for them.

That's crazy. For $30-40 (and $50 for the sub), you can get some damn good drivers that would absolutely kill these factory speakers. I'm sure the markup is huge on them though. I wouldn't be surprised if they paid pennies on the dollar for each since they would have put in a huge order for them.

If you get a chance to pull the oem door speakers you are in for a laugh...they are like a kid's toy...sad that Honda thinks so little of consumers being able to enjoy decent audio in a $25K auto.:thumbsdow

I asked that question on the audio forum and ended up being treated like a newb but can we swap those speakers with these Infinity Kappa (http://us.infinitysystems.com/product-detail-new-infinity-us/kappa-6211i.html) and end up with better sound quality without a new amp, I do have the stock premium amp...

I do think stock speakers are 2 ohms so normally it should be ok, but I didn't check if they were.

I know the hell how works wattage, just looking at built quality and correct impedance :/ vs the stock speakers

That's what you'll need to know. If the amp is driving 4 ohm speakers then I bet you'll fry the amp. Cheapo factory amp probably won't enjoy a lower ohm load too much

Probably the only way you will get reliable answer.

It doesn't say on the back of the factory speaker? I would highly doubt that they're 2ohm, but who knows.

Found my multimeter! Yay!

Stock speakers: 4 ohms
Stock subwoofer: 2 ohms
Stock tweeter: don't know I'm not sure how to remove them
