i run a vibe 2way LOC into a seperate amp - no noticable quality loss or quality issues.
i chose 2way as i only listen to music and use a RCA splitter to split it down for my front & rear amp feeds.
honda connect HU with factory speakers. I've essentially just thrown in a 5ch amp between the 2, as the system didnt like powering the speakers and LOC in parallel together.
if you go for aftermarket HU and keep all the existing features, i think i ended up at between £250-300 just for the various boxes for iMID, wheel controls, HFT, rear camera, parking sensors etc. i didnt get as far as seeing if it supported things like the parking dynamic guide lines or the MPG/info screen. £300+amps+decent HU+RCA's would of resulted around £1k for what i fancied and i just couldnt face that cost when the factory system is perfect for me now it has some much added bass.
didnt all the non-typeR 9th gen's allow for factory fitted sub? for the effort and time you'll spend, it could be worth looking into that option. i wish they had it as an option for the CTR.
