Considering getting this to upgrade sound in 2.0T sport manual. Anyone have one? Any feedback? Like or dislike?

Only $750?

This is a very intriguing product. I keep going back to the Crutchfield and Alpine websites to see if anyone has reviewed it - so far, nothing.

I got feedback from someone on a FB accord 10 page. The claim is that ANC still has to be disabled, even though this integrates with the factory system/connectors. Also, the bass output might not merit 750 dollars.

I don’t think it’s worth it for $750 i just did a whole kicker system in mine with components front and back and an 8 inch sub pushing out 600 watts and it sounds amazing everything cost me $500-$600 bucks also sound deadened everything you can think of in the car. So the value for just an amp and sub that’s sub par is not worth it in my opinion.

I haven’t pulled the trigger yet. As far as your component install, did you use the aftermarket passive crossover box? Or did you connect the aftermarket tweeter/woofer directly to the stock wires?

For me personally, I like the idea of this packaged because I can still use the trunk space efficiently (I’m a commuter dad with 2 dogs and a kid, my days of sealed 12” boxes in trunk are gone haha), while also giving factory speakers a bit of a boost. I’ll eventually replace the speakers but not yet.

so it came with a passive crossover which is awesome i didn’t plug the tweeter to the factory system and all i went with was an 8 inch subwoofer in a small box no issues at all with trunk space trust me we need it lol we go back home to NYC quite frequently and i have no issues stuffing two big suitcases in the trunk with that small sub box i will send pictures.

Ok... I'm curious too. Has anyone done this yet? I'd like to, but really wanna know how big of an improvement this is - there's only one 3-star review on Crutchfield. I know it's only one person's opinion, however based on the comments, the person doesn't appear to be an Alpine rep. Gone are the days of having a sub in my trunk and this looks like a decent way to clean-up/round out the sound in a simple way.

I have a 2018 1.5 manual sport. I want to add a subwoofer using a line out converter tapping the front speakers. Does anyone know the speaker wires color code for positive and negative. Also since I'm using the front to tap do I still need to disconnect the AnC?

yes you still need to disconnect the ANC unfortunately but it’s easy the front drivers door is positive PINK and negative GREY and the passenger door is positive RED and negative is Black

it also may be easier to tap into the rear speakers then the front i ran a line output converter directly from the harness because i changed all my speakers and wanted to run wires directly from the speaker wires to my 5 channel amplifier but if i just wanted to add a subwoofer which in my opinion is not worth it because the factory speakers are crap and should be changed out i would’ve done it from the rear speakers because they all run the same power so you won’t have an issue tapping into the rear speakers it will be easier.
