Speaker Help

I just picked up my 2001 prelude couple weeks ago, came with stock speakers, i bought some Infinity's Kappa Series 62.9I and the mounting depth is 58 mm (2.2 inches) and I'v read that the mounting depth max for an 01 prelude is 2 inches, just trying to find any truth as to whether or not these will work/fit in my car. I will be doing the installation myself.

Re: Speaker Help

they'll fit you just need to cut out the stock plastic thing that holds the speaker. i did it with a rotozip. I just need help because my speakers are working i must have wired them wrong or something. I tested them with a wire so the speakers are good but i dont know what is wrong, i think it might have something to do with the amp

Re: Speaker Help

I'm in the process of upgrading my stock sound system too. I Googled Honda AFBS and found out that the front door speakers while the rear deck speakers are 2 ohm. I've read numerous site threads where guys are claiming their rear speakers aren't working either, (because they are 4 or 8 ohm). According to my research if you re-use the factory amp mounted under between the rear speakers, you have to use replacement speakers rated at 2 ohms. Otherwise, you have to bypass the factory "amp" and rewire for the new speakers. Honda indicates that there are microphones imbedded in the rear speakers that constantly update the acoustic performance of all the speakers in the car based on data fed to the stock head unit. Just my .02.

Re: Speaker Help

When you say "completely re-wire," do you mean like like new wires? I ask because I've been told by some of the online audio sources that if you want to by-pass the the AFBS amp in the trunk, you have to run new wires.

I do know that you have to use 2 ohm rated speakers if you plan on replacing the factory speakers and re-using the AFBS amp. Guess if you want to go around the factory amp, you can use any ohm rated speaker you want, just have to run heavier wires to drive them.

I know when I just installed my Pyle triaxals in the front doors, the speaker wire is real light gauge. The speakers are 4 ohm and do sound great compared to the factory ones I took out.

I'll just have to decide if I want to run some good heavy copper wires to the front or reuse the AFBS again. A lot has to do with the availability of 2 ohm rated 6x9's...

Re: Speaker Help

1BadBB6,

Nice ride, Man!

Do you have, or can you provide me with a brief wiring diagram that will allow me to re-wire a set of 6x9's bypassing the factory amp? I've heard alot of guys here complain that they hook up their new speakers and they don't work.

Thanks for the help!

Re: Speaker Help

i didnt use a wiring diagram so i wouldnt know where to get you one. if you pull your head unit out you should be able to look on the wire and locate left rear and right rear power and ground wires. then just use quick splice connectors on those to splice in your wires that you are going to run to the back of the car. then just pull up the carpet and trim pieces and run your wire. hook everything up and you should be good to go.
