Honda Civic EX 2002 (Question!)
I visited a local audio shop (Sound Waves) today and the guy working there who seemed to have plenty of knowledge and experienced gave me some bad news. Unfortunately, my Civic has very little room in the doors for my front speakers so I can't get very large ones he said because of the lack of room. This limits my choices for front speakers, actually very few speakers will fit in this small area. (Way to go Honda!) Anyway, he pointed out some that would fit but they were pretty weak. He said if I get two sets of matching speakers, front and back, and a high quality powered HU I could get away with it. He pointed out a HU costing about $500! This HU could produce what normal HU's can't and it would make up for the lack of speaker size? He also said I could add and smaller amp and sub later down the road and still have a pretty decent system. So it seems my Civic suks and you can't put very large front speakers in. Bummer! I thought about those door kits/molds but they stick out so far my leg would always be up against a speaker! I've seem them. Anyway, this is the HU the expert recommended:
It's a nice HU, don't get me wrong, but do I really need this much? I think the speakers he showed me were only like $69 a pair and not very powerful. Is there that much difference in a HU were it can make up for my lack of speaker size? This just doesn't seem possible, who knows. I am not expert by all means.
Everything I have now is all factory junk and I'm getting tired of it in a hurry. Music is not even enjoyable to listen to with that setup. So, I am shopping and learning and just getting advice. I just didn't expect to pay $500 for a HU! What gives?
I think I need more opinions... (Not that he was wrong) I just want to know more.
