So i purchased new speakers for my 2013 accord, they sound like crap, just not enough db as stock.

Someone mentioned they were 2 ohm speakers. Is this correct. I would rather return speakers and try 2 ohm speakers so i dont have to purchase line out converter and additional amp since im not looking to get max volume out, but a better quality sounding.

So getting 6 channel line out converter and 4 channel amp is around $300.

I would rather spend a little extra for the 2 ohm speakers if they are more compatiable with stock head unit.


Are stock speakers 2 ohm or not?

Thank you

i replaced the rear speakers and fronts were still stock and the rears put out about half the db as the front. The highers were better but the bass was horrible (nothing) and i had to turn up the volume near and above 30 to hear the same level i did out of the stocks at 20 (on the volume control #). So i put stock speakers back in to research why i had such a big difference.

I was hoping to replace interior speakers and run them off the head unit and add a LOC for a small amp/sub.

The higher freq of the stock speakers **** and therefore why i would like to replace them.

It seems a simple speaker replacement and add sub/amp is not a simple task. It seems if i want to replace the interior speakers i need to add and amp too and a LOC big enough for 5 channels

So does Accord Sports have a factory amp? WOuld 2 ohm speakers give me a better db output with stock head unit?

Im a little confused as many people have swapped out interior speakers and never mentioned amps or LOC

Well the six channel loc will run of all for factory speaker writes. The subs will run off the rear speaker lines. So rear speaker lines will run the rear interior speakers and send the signal to the sub amp.

well i hate to sound stupid but i ordered the harness adapter that connects the factory connection to the speaker and i have to admit that the speaker sounds a hell a lot better using the adapter. Before i used male/female quick disconnectors. I dont understand how that would make a difference but....

Tomorrow i will replace all speakers and prep for the LOC to arrive. I got 2 pair of 22 gauge wire from work and will run new cable from speaker to trunk. I will just connect the two pairs in the rear to have the new speakers run off the stock radio and then split that off so one pair goes to the LOC and the other pair will connect to the speaker from the amp. One run with four cables.

I need to find speaker adapter plates now the new speakers wont fit properly into the existing speaker holes.
