Opinions!!!!!!!!

OKAY, so ive been very controversial about getting a whole audio system or a catback exhaust.

I know that those are two completely different things, but both will sound nice. Haha!

So my budget is about $500-600.

I thought i concluded with the catback, and was going to get the Thermal CL for my car, but it ended up being on back order for like 5 weeks... or longer ive heard. I don't really want to go custom or get another cat back, so dont try and give me any ideas, ive read em all.

OR,

I can try to get a new audio system for that same amount...Probably going to get a new HU, replace all the speakers, and throw in a 10 or 12inch sub in the trunk with a couple amps. I can do the wiring myself, just gotta look into it more.

If you guys had the choices which one would you pick? Im not looking for too much performance or anything, just getting those upgrades for my car.

Either way, my car will sound ALOT better! Haha. Let me know guys!

Thanks

Re: Opinions!!!!!!!!

Depends on what u prefer. Me personally i prefer a nice sound system. 1 10inch JL W7 will do u justice. Try and find a used one on CL just make sure the coils are good.

Re: Opinions!!!!!!!!

Go to Best Buy and measure the dimensions of a speaker box. Go to Home Depot and buy a 3/4 thickness 4x6 piece of plywood, some wood glue or caulk, some wood screws, and have them cut it into the dimensions you measured earlier. Or for added learning bonus, use a circular saw you may have access to, and a jigsaw to cut the hole for the speaker. BAM gained 2hrs of carpentry knowledge and saved $150 for a speaker box, or $140 if you go to Hobby Lobby and get carpet and glue for it to look nice. Plus, that box will hold up 10 times better than the cheap crap they sell at electronic stores.

Re: Opinions!!!!!!!!

Im not a fan of sound systems. I'd prefer some aftermarket speakers to replace the stock ones and a nice cat back exhaust.

Re: Opinions!!!!!!!!

IMO the stock audio system in our cars are pretty decent. I pump it up a lot and I'm fairly happy with it ATM. If it were me, I'd def buy the exhaust to enjoy extra music to the ears. Also, if you travel frequently under tunnels, the exhaust is the definite choice to get. :)

Re: Opinions!!!!!!!!

ALRIGHT, the decision is a sound system... And maybe a muffler Haha! Im gonna get a Rockford Fosgate powered sub R300-10 or -12. Not sure on what fits just yet. And stay with the rest stock, and see how that goes.
THEN for left overs, spend it on my exhaust!

Thanks guys!

Re: Opinions!!!!!!!!

hate sound systems. obnoxious, adds weight to the car, and 98% of people dont give two fcuks what others are listening to rather just think the sound is a nuisance, especially when in a car that screams impoverished (NOT talking about a lude! lol, im thinking more of that old rusty VW golf with bass blaring, rattling the license plate and sounding like complete and utter garbage.)

guess you could say teh same for an exhaust.

but at least itll free up a couple ponies and make the car more of a joy to drive. at least till the exhaust drone drives you crazy, unless thats your thing and you live to hear that drone, and glorious VTEC sound when going to wide open throttle.

but this is just an opinion of course as im more than happy with just upgraded speakers and a deck. oh, and the subwoofer/tweeters that come from the factory in 4th gen VTEC/SR-V model ludes! even if they are from the early 90s, theyre pretty decent. :)

Re: Opinions!!!!!!!!

I've never been a fan of any aftermarket exhaust system for 4 bangers so I never added one for my car. However, I did change up to a highflow cat and new header and a nice intake. Other then that, my car had the stock exhaust but sounded decently nice/loud when hitting it hard.

I was more into the audio system. Rather have me hearing good music then other people complaining about a white ricer with gold rims ripping along neighbourhoods. That's just my 2 cents. As for my Acura CL-S, it had a V6 engine so I put on a CompTech axleback exhaust and I loved the deep toned exhaust, but not screaming loud.

Re: Opinions!!!!!!!!

I my self am not into audio.. If it were me I would get the exhaust. Leave the audio system for the stanced guys. I am not hating on stanced guys it is just all for looks. It does look good on some cars but not the prelude or S2000. In my opinion it should be done to 4 door cars that looks bada$$.

Re: Opinions!!!!!!!!

if you have decent speakers, you dont even need a sound system. Subs are just added weight and a waste of money imo. I already had a jvc headunit from when i had my civic, and my lude came with aftermarket speakers. go with the exhaust, youll be happier. thats the route i took.
