Worth upgrading EX to front Co-ax speakers?

Hi all,
very impressed with some of the upgrades done on this site but I'm not a great audiophile. However, having 192Kb WMA capability in the car means I'll certainly listen to more music than I did in my Accord SE.

I'm trying to avoid spending too much further on the car (could go on forever!) as the leather/18" factory fit options were the most important to me.

I'm definitely adding:

RearView Camera + Civic Type R gear-knob.

Would I see a decent boost in bass/sound quality from adding Co-ax to the front only over the standard EX speakers? The full concert pack or upgrading all 4 speakers is more than I want to spend on audio. If not then may go for the studio pack upgrade to get the camera + bling.

Upgrading the speakers will not give you more bass - but the rest of the spectrum will be much clearer and less harsh or gratey. To get proper low down bass, you have to add a sub (see the How-To section). Rearview camera is well worth it - but one note of caution with the 18" wheels, make sure you drive a Civ with them on before you commit. The ride can get a bit harsh and the directional stability can suffer.


PS - Welcome!

Thanks Pottsy. Great site, very nice to see the rear-view camera in action!

Had no probs with the ride on the 18" tyres, Certainly a little more jiggly but enjoyed them and of course they look great too.

My dealer doesn't seem to have any Civics at present with the speaker upgrade. Do you know if the co-ax make a big difference? And would just 2 be enough to do so?


PS - very jealous of the 170 PS upgrade, best not mess with mine till the lease is up though!
