My friend's Honda Accord has only 2 stock speakers in it, and it sounds 100x better than my van which has 6 speakers and 2 tweeters.

Why is this?

I upgraded my front stock speakers to some Pioneers and they don't sound any better than what I already had in there.

Does anyone know what the stock speakers are in a new Honda Accord? Or does it have something to do with the radio? Or a combo of both? Help please...

This could depend on tons of reasons.

It takes a long time just to get this all straight.

The new speakers I got were a higher wattage than my radio so I wouldn't blow them. Same ohms, as well. They weren't cheap, so I should see some audible difference, no?

Well yeah if they're new speakers they should be better, right?

Did you install the speakers yourself or have a professional do it?

I did it. I just unplugged the old ones and soldered the new ones. Not hard. Its not like they sounded bad, just not a big upgrade from what I had.

Maybe he's done a great equalizing job?

Well I didn't know you could equalize speakers...


Yeah I obviously meant the speakers and not whatever audio output you've got...

because if its a 6 or a 6x9 speaker and not say a 5, it will sound deeper, smoother and fuller. Also they might be quality speakers?

The ones in the Honda are 6.5, which is the same size in my van. I bought Pioneer 1682ie 3 way speakers. I guess when I think about it, the Honda just has much bigger and more defined bass. And thats with 2 speakers.

So do I need to EQ something on my radio Kensai?

Its also a lot to do with the positioning too.

I mean, the speakers in my car have so much god damn mid range, it sounds like a rape alarm.

I set it on "Hip hop" and turn the treble down a couple of notches. Sounds a lot better.
