Hi, I'm new to this site, joined it as I now drive a 2007 Honda Civic Type S gt i-ctdi. Seems like a good car, I've been driving in total 34 years and this is only my 8th car!

After 2 weeks, still getting used to this car (first ever diesel), my main concern at present is the crap sound system. In my last 3 cars I used a JVC KD-S891R CD/MP3 with the LOUDNESS button left on, this meant great bass and overall sound with just the factory speakers working well. I want to keep the Honda head unit, but I really need to "up" the bass, its rubbish. Can anyone kindly advise me of a good add on amp that either has a LOUDNESS function or BASS boost, preferably one that would drive the original speakers? Failing that a good amp and the best speakers to fit into the Honda speakers positions.
I can manage speaker swaps, unsure of my DIY skills for adding an amp! Does the Civic fascia come off easily? Can an amp be hidden behind there or is it best in the boot ?
