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

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:

Bring EDM To Life In Your Car!

EDM

Whether you’re a raver, bass head, junglist or just enjoy listening to electronic music, upgrading your car stereo to sound its best is partially based on preference. First and foremost, for those tech savvy users, we highly recommended to upgrade your head unit that features auxiliary, USB or Bluetooth capabilities to wirelessly stream music directly from your iPhone, MP3 player or other smart phone devices. Seeing as how there are so many genres of “Electro” music nowadays, let’s go over a few suggestions for a good quality stereo system to get the best boom for your buck!

If you’re into house music or a general genre of electronic music, you’d want quick, punchy bass. A smaller subwoofer, 8” or 10”, would be sufficient for this specific genre such as the RE Audio SEX10. These subwoofers provide high performance as well as value and can add the perfect addition to bring EDM to life in your vehicle.

 

 

 

 

For those into dubstyle, trap or drum n’ bass music, a bigger subwoofer would bring the best audio quality such as a 12” or 15” to give you really deep, booming bass. The NVX VCW154 is a perfect example and will provide the thick bass quality you want for this genre. The key components in the design of this subwoofer is the large dual 3” high temperature aluminum voice coils and triple stacked motor structure which allow this sub to handle some serious power at 850-1000 watts RMS, ideal for this type of music.

A lot of the music you hear on the radio seem to have a lot of vocals with a mixture of bass but is mainly focused on the vocals. Listening to more trance or techno, you’ll want clear yet smooth highs. We recommended the Infinity Kappa series speakers. This line of car speakers produce clear, loud high end sound and will definitely bring Electronic Dance Music to life in your vehicle.

 

Depending on your preference of electronic music, have your own mini rave in your car and check out these products on our site. For more information, visit our video on Infinity Kappa Series speakers.

Cerwin-Vega HED Series Speakers – Great Sound at a Lovely Price

Cerwin-Vega

So you’ve got a vehicle, but the sound simply isn’t up to par. What do you do? Well, you upgrade your speakers of course!  Cerwin-Vega has made it easy and affordable to get the quality sound you’ve always wanted in your vehicle with the HED Series coaxial and componentCerwin-Vega H4653 car speakers.

Each woofer cone is composed of a polypropylene cone material which is accurate and lightweight so the speaker will have a greater transient response. The series is equipped with rubber speaker surrounds that help guide the movement of the cone in a perfectly linear fashion in order to preserve the accuracy of the music being produced. Each Cerwin Vega HED series speaker is equipped with a 19mm mylar dome tweeter that’s responsible for articulating super-high frequencies that pass the range of human hearing. All of these speaker components are driven by a powerful ferrite magnet and an aluminum voice coil that work to control the cone movement and to dissipate heat as quick as possible.

The HED Series car speakers are available in a 3.5″, 4″, 4×6”, 5.25″, 6.5”, 6” x 8” and 6” x 9” coaxial system, and a 6.5” component system. Both component sets feature a separate tweeter that can be flush mounted into the doors for optimal imaging of your music. Separate crossover networks are included which will blend the frequency spectrum of the mid-woofer to that of the tweeter for an ideal flat response. With relatively low power ratings, these speakers will sound great off the head-unit or even a small amplifier.

The entire HED lineup is constructed using quality parts and materials to ensure a long lasting driver that will forever sound great in your car or truck, so when it’s time for a little sound upgrade, don’t overlook the HED series by Cerwin-Vega. You can check out the whole line-up of speakers by visiting us at SonicElectronix.com!

MB Quart ONYX Series Coaxial and Component Car Speakers

The MB Quart ONYX series speakers are designed to replace your factory door speakers and provide an all new quality that will liven up your listening experience. If music is important to you and you find yourself driving around frequently, then consider upgrading to the ONYX series.

Built with a polypropylene cone material, the woofers offer precise bass with warm tone for a natural sound the way the artist intended. Each speaker has either a separate or built-in 1” tweeter made from Silk. These tweeters are Dome shaped and optimized to blend evenly into the mid-woofer for an even sound spectrum. All ONYX speakers include butyl rubber surrounds that assist with the linear movement of the speaker cones. The high-temperature voice coils and magnet structures are perfect for those seeking to power them with the receiver, or even an aftermarket amplifier. Spade style terminals let you quickly attach the speaker wire before installation and will hold for years to come. The coaxial models are the OKC116, OKC168 and the OKC169 and include all of these features.

The component ONYX series: the OSC213 and the OSC216 both included 1” external tweeters that can be flush mounted into door pods for a better sound stage. External crossover networks are built with high quality parts to maintain an even blend of mid-range tone and high-frequency presence. Both component speakers include protective speaker grilles, and so does the 6-1/2” coaxial OKC116 mentioned earlier. With powering handling varying between 40 and 50 watts RMS per model, these speakers are perfect upgrades for the music lover looking for a little extra kick in their car or truck.

The ONYX speakers all feature wide frequency responses, shallow mounting depths and high sensitivity ratings, which makes them ideal for the do-it-yourselfer who simply wants some good sounding speakers. So, if you’re looking for a great sounding speaker and don’t necessarily want to add any amplifiers (or even if you do), check out the ONYX series component and coaxial speakers at the one and only SonicElectronix.com.
