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.
Don’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.

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 Enclosure
- Amp Wiring Kit
- Speaker Wire
