The problem is that the existing speakers have tiny magnets so the underpowered head unit is ok driving them. Once you put in some decent speakers, they need more power to achieve the same volume level. You might even get to the point where the Honda head unit is maxing out and distorting if they are really manly speakers.
If you do swap them out, your choices are either live with it, fit a 4 channel amplifier (or 2 x 2 channel) or get a new head unit. I went for the extra functionality of a double din with satnav, if you can afford it it does make the interior a nice place to be.
