I installed infinity reference components in the front and rear of my Sport 1.5. Many say it is not worth it to put components in the rear deck but I firmly believe it is after having coaxial speakers in the rear. They are being powered by the deck but I was able to get them to sound louder than the OEM speakers and retain the mid bass.
I soldered every last one of the connections, even at the cross overs so there is no resistance, maximum signal transfer and power flow.
I do not recommend this but I did this on my 2017 civic, and now my accord sport, I replaced the 15 amp audio fuse under the hood with a 30 amp and it makes a huge difference in the performance of the speakers. I don’t feel the need to ad an amp.
The last thing I am going to do is reinstall my kicker hideaway. I have the 8”, but I am thinking about getting the 10” The Kicker HS8 can drop some rich bass when the gain is set correctly, and properly grounded. If it is bottoming out, something is not connected properly, or the gain isn’t set correctly.
I tapped the front left speaker wire for my kicker hideaway subwoofer. The wires are pink and grey, and I unplugged the wire harnesses where it goes into the door grommet under the dash and pulled back the tape to easily access it while i tapped it without cutting it. You also must unplug your anc behind the glove box or you will get a terrible hum and it won’t even let it play. Takes five minutes to do as there are videos on YouTube getting to it.
