Subwoofer speaker

Is it possible to rebuild the factory rear subwoofer in between the rear seats? Mine sounds a bit crackly and am thinking the cone has deteriorated/failed over time.

Suggestions, Options?

Re: Subwoofer speaker

I believe it's just a regular 6x9", so you should be able to pull the speaker to check the depth clearance and then order a 6x9 sub or regular 6x9 to fit. From research I did when I was considering adding one to my car though, you should probably be able to get a better sounding system by putting good speakers in the rear deck and powering them though an amp with a low pass filter.

Re: Subwoofer speaker

You could replace with a nice aftermarket, but I get your question if you wanna keep it as oem as possible.

Keep in mind, everything that is built, can be rebuilt, just depends on if its worth it to rebuild. Search up online how to rebuild a speaker

Re: Subwoofer speaker

Check out crutchfield. Others here probably know other places to look. But crutchfield has a good selection and if they don't have a model for you, you can check out other models of the brands they do have via search engine.
Honda warehouse is outta stock on the oem stuff.
But first things first.... you measure the height of the speaker, bottom of magnet to bottom of frame, then frame thickness.
You need to know how deep your speaker is mounted. And also the height of the frame to ensure your replacement will fit.
An all bass 6x9 would be ideal of course, but a full range 2 way may also do the job. I say 2 way because it's only a woofer being used. One with a mid range and tweeter would be more expensive than say a woofer with a tweeter.

Here's one ^^… guy says he used it in his 96 vtec in place of his old one.

Re: Subwoofer speaker

All that factory 'sub' is, is a 1-way 6x9 hooked up to a low-pass filter and a really weak little amp. Before I put a system in mine, I just bought a $24 pair of 6x9s from Target, used one, and fed a (-) from the left rear and a (+) from the right rear to it and let it go. The bass the OEM setup contributed to the overall sound was minimal, so it didn't affect the sound much.

Reviewer #8 at the link in my previous post describes using the speaker to replace his oem one.

Re: Subwoofer speaker

I understand replacing with aftermarket, which is what I would do, but that speaker oem if properly rebuilt might be worth some good money.... Which Is why he might wanna rebuild it (properly) to add more oem value to his car... I can't read his mind though, and he hasn't responded yet so idk...

Re: Subwoofer speaker

Yeah, speaker re-coning kits used to be pretty commonplace a few decades ago. These days they're mostly reserved for professional stuff. The 12" speaker in my guitar amp would cost something like $200 to replace, and it's a common brand and model. That's one speaker.


This thing takes 8.

Re: Subwoofer speaker

Thanks, I am just looking into alternatives. I think the most cost effective route is the Tang Band replacement.

Re: Subwoofer speaker

Not to hijack the thread, but has anyone ever tried to seal the back of the factory sub with fiberglass to bring it's peak down lower? Wish I had one on hand... would be an interesting project.
