SPEAKER UPGRADE KIT - CO-AXIAL

It would be interesting to get feedback on this. Mainly because I used to be quite the sound system person (Pioneer seperates, Rockford Fosgate subs and some posh amp whose brand name I cannot remember but it was a high quality US amp) and looking at the prices etc I thought the upgrade was a waste of money.

Point 1, the car has seperates (tweeters by the wing mirrors and mid-bass in the door) so how would a co-axial (with integral tweeter) be an upgrade??

Point 2, dual cone.....the cheapest type of speaker.....as a cost upgrade to replace already standard seperates??

WTF?!!!

:confused:

Interesting, did nobody go for this upgrades, I thought that they were popular because they are make to fit in car with no problems.

In our country price for DUAL CONE is 90 EUR + TWEETER 158 EUR and CO-AXIAL is 185 EUR, bass works is 663 EUR..

Are this good prices for this speakers ?

Best regards.

Never buy these, always go for branded, quality speakers...the Honda upgrade is over priced tat IMHO...

Trust me... they offer terrible sound quality... :(

I did go for the upgrades....

But I have no idea how much better (or not) than the standard set they are, as the only time I've heard the standard ones was on a 48hr test drive, 6 months prior to getting mine.

Wish I hadn't bothered though - the bassworks system is 'somewhat lacking' :(

Its lacking all right, in quality, power and sound...

Its damn expensive too for what u get, first thing im doing is taking my car into AutoSounds, get the OEM speakers out...

:)

Such a shame too as with this upgrade Honda could have chose any number of brands to use...

Pioneer ftw... :D

I bought the speaker upgrade kit (dual cone) for front and back doors yesterday and installed them. What should I say? They were very expensive, but the sound is much clearer at higher volumes and there's a little more bass in comparison to the original speakers...

I bought the original ones, because i'm afraid of rust, when drilling holes in the metal of the doors...
