The front and rear speakers are 6 3/4 speakers. I am going with these guys - https://www.crutchfield.com/S-6Iw0GrcZpvb/p_575P167/Rockford-Fosgate-Punch-P1675.html - Then I am adding a mono block amp with 2 15" Kicker subs. Get this baby booming!Does anyone know what size speakers are in the Sport model? The overall sound is a little flat. I’m looking to upgrade but I can’t seem to find much information about what sizes to be looking for yet
If you're buying the Accord for it's sound system, you're buying it for the wrong reasons. The ride is fun, it's an amazing car and to spend the extra $1000 on a system that sounds awesome in a car that drives and performs awesome, I would do that any day of the week!The "upgraded" 450 watt system in the Touring isn't much better. I've heard it and it's quite disappointing. Its like a cacophony of sound. Highs sound too scratchy, mids are non existent and lows are noticeably lacking. Before you get any decent bass out the system, you have to crank it to 90% volume and by that time, distortion becomes an issue. I wish Honda would just let the real pros like JBL, BOSE, Harman Kardon etc. handle their sound systems like 98% of automakers because this is terrible. I've been eying the 2018 Accord for a while now, went to a dealer to test drive it and all, but the ONE thing that keeps me away is the sound system. I don't want to drop 35k on a vehicle then spend another grand out of pocket upgrading the system (and possibly voiding my warranty).
I wired everything up just fine with a new amp and sub. No need to touch the ANC module.Well that's a much better price, glad that you're happy with the improvements. Good suggestion with the ANC system as I forgot that was a feature on the new Accord. We're you able to get everything wired up to the stock infotainment system?
Welcome to the club buddy. I wonder how many complaints it will take from customers before Honda finally stops being cheap and allows a REAL sound company to do their sound. I wouldn't mind paying $500-$1000 more for the car if they offered a premium BOSE system. It doesn't even have to be B&O or Bowers and Wilkins. Good ol' fashioned BOSE will do.The 2018 Accord Touring 450 W Premium sound system has got to be the worst sound system I've heard to date in an upscale car. Its awful and disappointing.
Whatever you decide to do, an amp will be critical in getting the most out of your replacement speakers. Even if you were to stick with a simple coax speaker set, that won't change the amount of power pushed to them and you will not be satisfied.Does anybody has upgraded the speakers on the 2.0t sport? i am planning to put JL Audio C2-650X , but i don't know if i have to go with the components at front with a amplifier or just coaxial, i think with the JL audio without components i should be ok i just want an opinion..
