Upgrade The Audio In Your 2006-2011 Honda Civic

Honda Civic

The Honda Civic is the fourth most popular car on the market today. This widely popular compact car has a wide variety of powertrains, features a comfortable and composed ride, has great fuel economy, along with a spacious interior. In this blog, we will discuss some of the popular audio upgrades that can be installed in a 2006-2011 Honda Civic.

1UPGRADE THE STEREO

The 2006-2010 Honda Civic vehicles come standard with a factory single-DIN or double DIN Radio integrated into the dashboard. To replace your factory stereo with an aftermarket one, use one of the following dash kits and wiring harnesses. We do offer free installation accessories with the purchase of a new car stereo.

Brand: Single DIN Kit Double DIN Kit Wiring Harness
Metra Metra 99-7871T Metra 99-7871T Metra 70-1722
Scosche Scosche HA1561DGB Scosche HA1561DGB Scosche HA10B

As you can see above, the same dash kits work with a single or double DIN stereo. With freedom to choose a single or double DIN, Honda Civic car owners are free to choose just about any Car Stereo they would like.

stopDon’t forget to grab an Antenna Adapter! Use the Metra 40-30 antenna adapter kit to connect your new car stereo to your factory radio antenna.

 

2RETAIN YOUR STEERING WHEEL CONTROLS

Upgrading the audio system does not mean losing any features. That means that the steering wheel controls will need to be retained and connected to the new stereo. Axxess has made it easy with an automatically programming interface. Use the Axxess ASWC to keep the convenience of these steering wheel controls and enable them to work with your new stereo.

3UPGRADE YOUR SPEAKERS

While there may be nothing wrong with your stock Honda speakers, installing some aftermarket car speakers will make your Honda Civic sound amazing! The following speaker information from the Metra Online Vehicle Fitement Guide can be used to find the right pair of speakers for your Civic.

Location Size Depth
Front Speakers 6-1/2″ 4″
Front Tweeters 1-1/4″ 2″
Rear Speakers 6-1/2″ 3″

Speakers that Fit the 2006-2011 Honda Civic

OUR EXPERTS SUGGEST KICKER® 6-1/2″ COAXIAL OR COMPONENT CAR SPEAKERS!

Note: The Metra VFG was used to determine the vehicle speaker sizes in this blog. Due to different trims on cars, I highly recommend calling a Sonic Electronix representative at 1-877-289-7664 to confirm that the speaker sizes and DIN sizes are compatible with your trim.

4ADD SOME BASS

After upgrading your stereo and car speakers, your Honda Civic is going to sound incredible. However, in order to really get the most out of your vehicle’s sound system, you can add a subwoofer with an enclosure! A subwoofer will allow you to really hear your music’s low frequencies. Here is a list of what you will need to add some killer bass to your Honda Civic.

  • Subwoofer
  • Subwoofer Enclosure
  • Amplifier
  • Amp Wiring Kit
  • Speaker Wire

We suggest this Complete Bass Package for your Honda Civic:

Belva BPKG110

New Sennheiser Urbanite Headphones

Let your ears be loved: Sennheiser’s new on-ear URBANITE and over-ear URBANITE XL deliver unique style and an intense club sound on the move – serving up massive bass but with Sennheiser’s uncompromising audio expertise ensuring excellent clarity across all frequencies.  Staying connected is a breeze with two dedicated versions for Apple iOS, or Windows Phone and Android devices, such as Samsung Galaxy that provide in-line remotes and integrated microphones for taking calls and controlling the music. URBANITE’s streetwise styling comes with toughness to match. They feature durable metal components that can take on the pressures of urban living, and are designed to cleverly fold away into a soft pouch.

DESIGN:

From a design standpoint both versions have a similar design with the obvious difference of the size and shape of the ear cups. The Urbanite XL (over-ear) is substantially larger than the on-ear version, but the colors and materials are essentially identical. The canvas-like covering, contrast stitching on the headband and the matte finish of the earcups are simple, classy touches, and the earpads themselves are exceptionally comfortable. Even the on-ear URBANITES provide a great acoustical seal to your ear which is rare for an on-ear.

A thick cable descends from the interior of the headband, attaching to each earcup and acting as the adjusting mechanism. The detachable audio cable connects to the left ear, and the inline remote control and microphone is compatible with iOS devices and allows for adjusting volume, skipping tracks, playing or pausing music, as well as answering or ending phone calls.

SOUND:

As with all Sennheiser products, the sound output of the Urbanite headphones are full, rich and crystal clear. Sennheiser developed them to deliver extra low-end bass. The thing that separates these from other headphones with an emphasis on bass is that these have a fuller and richer tone throughout their operating frequency range of 16 – 22,000 Hz, without things sounding awkwardly boosted. As Sennheiser says, “The bass is better. Not Louder.”
