    Default FK8 speaker upgrade

    Hi all,

    Has anyone uprated the speakers in their car or added a small sub? I'm finding they really lack bass and when you increase the bass in the settings, it's a very tinny sound. I don't want a huge woofer box but would like to do something to make the sound quality better and increase the lower range.

    Cheers,

    Will

    I agree sound isn't outstanding, my missus' mini is much bassier and generally better, especially apple car play which is very tinny and there is a clear difference when we jump from one car to the next.

    However, it's good enough for me and not something I'd spend me money on. Yanks are all over it though so check civicx.com!

    Kenwood make a good under-seat subwoofer.

    Nothing earth-shattering, but definitely better than OEM sounds

    It doesn't sound too bad with the settings all fairly neutral, as I said, I'm just looking for a little more bottom end. Nothing huge! An under seat sub would be ideal I think.

    I have a Kenwood under seat sub I removed from my Abarth. I did consider fitting it but wouldn't know where to start in the Civic.
