Audio upgrade

Hi all!

I'm planning to upgrade speakers and audio system in my 9th gen. I got some question to those who already done something like this.

1) What are speakers sizes? Front and back are both 16,5cm (6 1/2" -


2) Is there enought power to power up custom speakers in standard audio system?
3) Maybe someone know what is the difference between PremiumAudio and StandardAudio systems mounted in our Civics? I know there is a subwoofer in trunk, but I'm wondering are there any wiring differences? I was thinking about swaping audio systems.

1) 6.5" however you may need to use a spacer or butcher the factory speaker to use as a spacer.
2) not enough power without an external amp. Sounds dreadful as is (tinny). I tried a JBL 6.5" 3 way. I ended up using an 8G civic OEM "upgrade" speaker.
3) standard HU comes with either 4 speakers or 4 speakers + 2 tweeters. Premium head unit has an additional subwoofer. On an 8G Accord, the Premium HU (Panasonic OEM) is paired an a separate amp located in the boot. Don't know if this is the case with the Civic though.

There is a HowTo thread on speakers if you want to read up on it.

Audio upgrade

If you want to upgrade the headunit, you may as well go aftermarket with a 2-din HU from one of the popular manufacturers eg Pioneer, Sony etc. Connects2 make a nice fascia kit (LHD or RHD) with harness accessories for interfacing with your steering wheel controls.
Bonus is then you get video, GPS and reverse camera functionality if you require.
