Cool New Civic 2.2 i-CTDi comming from the Netherlands

Hi all!

Well new to the forums, so let me introduce myself to the big Civic community.

I am 23 years young and am working for an IT company.
My boss let's me choose business car in Feburuari.

So my girl and I decided to choose the:

Honda Civic 2.2 i-CTDi Sport
- not the standard 17 inch rims.
- Parking sensors and a navigation screen (not the intergrated one).
- Subwoofer kit

But now I don't know if I also should upgrade the speakers?
Do you think it is worth the price?

Well I am looking forward to order our new Civic!

Ciao

Hi and Welcome!

The Honda audio upgrades are, according to most people, not worth the money. If it is a company car you may not be able to go for aftermarket solutions however.

But, it may be worthwhile spending the money on some other option.

For more info, see the wiki ICE FAQ:

In fact, a lot of things worth reading in the Wiki...

I don't have any experience with any aftermarket stuff, but I think the standard speakers are not very good so an upgrade is very worthwhile. Since I drive a company car as well I did get the BassWorks upgrade and maybe it's not so good as aftermarket stuff I don't think it's bad. A bit expensive yes, but that's not so much a problem for me personally with a company car.

I feel the weakest link in the sound now actually is the head unit. But if you set the bass and treble both to 0 you'll get a nice enough sound which you can turn up pretty good without it becoming noise.

Thanks for your useful reply, sounds good enough for me then.

At the moment I drive a 2007 VW Jetta, and the 8 speaker sound in that car is better then the Civic indeed (well standard sound) that is why I asked.

Can't wait to order and get my Civic

Well a little (well old big) topic kick.
My boss had some issues with prices and that kind of stuff...
At the end of the story they lowered the prices.

So my Sport ain't going to be a Civic Sport.
*sigh...

Well but now it finally is time to order my Space ship.
Next week the company car is going to be ordered.
It is going to be a Black Civic 2.2 i-CTDi Comfort.
- 16 inch Titan

Now the problem....
- 4 crappy speakers?????

*sigh

Now what would you advise?
- buy the upgrade (basskit)
- buy speakers myself an let be built in?

Hope to get my spaceship soon!

Thanks for the replies all!
