FN2_07 Hi all,

I'm wanting to improve the sound quality in my FN2 type r. It has the standard head unit, initially I'd like to replace the door speakers and the tweeters. At a later date I then intend to replace the rears.

Can someone please give me a link to some good quality but well priced speakers and tweets. Also where is best to get the adaptors from?

I'd really appreciate some links to all the stuff I'd need! I'm a complete novice!!!

Many thanks

x5252x The starter set Mattyc linked to looks like a reasonable option since it comes with sheets of different materials.

The deadening is obviously going to make some difference with regards to vibrations, but whether the other stuff will make a noticeable difference I don't know, especially as they are only just bigger than an A4 sheet. I assume correct positioning has quite a large impact, and the site does give some indication as to where to put them...

I'm not expecting anything like studio sound quality given the budget speakers/headunit I've got, but compared to other cars the Civic doors do seem to be particularly poor in terms of acoustics and vibrations/rattles, or at least mine do...

No worries, if you take the door card off again it would great if you could take a couple .

Did you keep the seal thing (plastic sheet) on the door?

Indeed. I was impressed with some of the demo vid's - just 1 small pad on a large Dexion sheet worked wonders. Impressive stuff.

The door with the sound deadening on the speaker adapter is definitely more bassy than the adapter with no deadening on so will re fit the left adapter with deadening attached in the future. I deadened all the doors but bass is still lacking, hope it improves when the speakers are run in.
Any details/pictures on the sound deadening for the doors?

It's another project I haven't had a chance to do yet...

That's ok. Once the speaker 2 legs pop in the hole and is screwed in tightly, the speaker does not move at all. Even when it's on full blast. I haven't noticed no vibratation on test. I don't think the deadening would make a big difference, specially on low range speakers like these. However it's always good to have the extras just in case and I guess the deading does look supportive

Are you going to be using a amp? I just have my speakers hooked up to the original wiring.

Mattyc

Fitted one speaker, took me 3 hours! Didn't fit the first speaker adapter with deadening but gonna try and fit the second one with deadening attached to it and see which gives better bass. Will do other speaker tomorrow as didn't expect first one to take so long!
