Hi, new the forum, 1st post... Switched from my 2008 Infiniti M35 Sport to a 2019 Accord Hybrid Touring.... I'm not looking to be the loudest car in the neighborhood nor my street, just want to add a little kick worth of subwoofer in the trunk. It's my first Hybrid car so I know it's not the same but looking to see if anyone has some experience with their hybrids they don't mind sharing.

Did adding after market speakers, amps, or subwoofer affected/damaged anything on the car? Did it affected the Hybrid battery?.. although a sound system will be plugged in to the 12V battery... I just got it so I don't want to take it to my local sound shop and pay the price a month later if something gets fried...

Thanks in advance folks!

I may have bookmarked them wherever I was reading at the time but lots of info in the entire posts most likely.

I’ve had a 2500w amp for a few months with no adverse effects so far. I’ve measured over 100 amps actual amp draw. So I think that you’re probably fine with a smaller amp.

I put components woofers and tweeters in the front stage. They were definitely worth upgrading.

Thanks for following up bro. So I ended up only doing, for now, JL Subs 8 inch built in amp.. it's pretty nice.. I still have everything stock and it sounds and feels so much better!

Hehe.... Nice find. 500 w rms sounds really good. Yes I think any powered subwoofer would give the sound a very nice, clean well rounded bass. Besides the upgraded speakers and amp, I added an 8 inch kicker hideaway under seat powered sub and it made all the difference. Only thing with your setup is that Crutchfield recommends total 30 amp draw for any stereo upgrades so if you follow their advice strictly, you can't add anything anymore since your powered sub is already drawing 30 amps. See if you can download this app....

I'll let you know later when I'm on a desktop so I can copy and paste the upgrades I added.

Yea thanks. I also read up on only 30 watts usage recommended... I'm keeping my fingers cross for no issues in the future.. I have read people have just replaced the stock speakers with better drivers and left the stock amp in and it was also a better output.. I'm considering that since just like u said, not recommending going beyond 30 amps...

front separates.................. https://www.morelhifi.com/product/maximus-602-v2-2-way/
rear co axials.................... https://www.morelhifi.com/product/maximo-ultra-coax/
amplifier............................ Kicker 47KEY200.4 Compact 4-channel car amplifier with automatic tuning DSP — 50 watts RMS x 4 at Crutchfield
(has built in dsp and 40band eq)
subwoofer ...................... Kicker 11HS8 Hideaway™ compact powered subwoofer: 150 watts and an 8" sub at Crutchfield
got mine from Best Buy open box excellent condition for $210
https://www.bestbuy.com/site/kicker...-150w-amplifier-black/3526208.p?skuId=3526208. (you can add a 4 year warranty for $32 )

phone for bluetooth ...... LG G8. eq setting set like a letter V. LG phones put out much power than any other smartphones, so i use it to mainly stream music.

additional equalizer app on my android LGG8 Music Volume EQ — Equalizer Sound & Bass Booster - Apps on Google Play
equalizer bands on this app also set at Letter V
(sound is just my preference, puts out very good bass). you can download this app on any phones and see how much more power it gives your system.

all installed by Best Buy mobile. my installer was pretty good. no need for a Line out converter.

close all your windows and play this song....and feel the thumpin bass and tight crisp sound....HEAVEN!!!


be happy to demo my gear for anyone near chicago suburbs, randall road area. must also bring their hybrid accord.

I'm in Florida; would have love to hear ur system pump. That video really brings out the components, I can only imagine with even higher quality how much better it would sound.

Yeah, it's good to put some decent rms power on the front and rear speakers. I didn't care for my center channel and factory (disconnected) sub anymore. My system will not wake up the neighbors but it is more than decent, especially when the windows are closed.
