  1. No sound after new stereo with CarPlay install?

    Electronics and ICE (9G)
    Hey everyone, I'm losing hope on this one. I have a 2013 Honda Civic Automatic. It had a multimedia system built in but felt dated and I'd hoped to install a CarPlay unit. I took the car to a professional and they installed the new HU, harness and custom wires I'd bought online. The rear view...
  2. Tuning Improve exhaust sound on 1.6 I-Dtec

    Engines and Transmission (9G)
    Hello all, I have a 1.6 I-Dtec Civic and I was wondering if anyone found anything for their 9G to improve its sound; I found a four-exhaust system by Fox but (as always for this car) I couldn't find anything more than that and I think that it's quite.. exaggerated for a car like this. Don't...
  3. Radio DSP setting on 2010 models?

    Ipods, MP3 Players and ICE (8G)
    I've seen a couple of YT videos about turning off the DSP (giving better bass and overall sound reproduction) but all these videos are from the US (I think). It involves holding some buttons down while powering the head unit on, forcing it into diagnostic mode , then manually turning the DSP...

    Ipods, MP3 Players and ICE (8G)
    I have a Honda Civic (2006, Mk8) which probably has the worst sound system I’ve experienced in a car!! I have the standard manufacturer fitted stereo unit and speakers and the sound that comes out of the speakers is bad, there is next to no bass and the quality of the sound is terrible...

  8. Amplifier Does anyone have a guide for a complete novice for an AMP install on SATNAV HEAD UNIT

    Ipods, MP3 Players and ICE (8G)
    Hi, Ive been looking to improve my 8th gen civics sound quality for some time due to major lack of bass and detail. Ive decided that a double din install is out of my price range, plus im not sure how it would fit with the SATNAV head unit. I believe that an AMPLIFIER and possibly a sub is the...

  12. Other Splashing sound underneath the front seats

    Bugs, faults and irritations (8G)
    I've noticed something strange in my Type S GT. Everytime I drive the car with a 'full tank' of fuel, I've noticed a splashing sound from underneath the front seats. I'm sure this is from the fuel tank because - 1. It is located underneath the front seats. 2. I can hear it only when the...
