Good Point. Picture this:ffiallo said:Why didnt you go with component kits?
So, the last two channels offer 250 watts RMS into 2 ohms if bridged. A Bazooka 8" would fit nicely attached to the back of the center seat in the last row. I might need to move it depending on the cargo I'm carrying at the time. The two 6.5" tubes sound really really good though.Originally posted by 91Octane
Next... Sub time!
Funny :2: I had the exact same conversation with my wife a couple weeks ago. I doubt I'll go much past the doors and dash speaker upgrade...but we'll see.Ferdball said:Good Point. Picture this:
Me: "I'm going to swap the speakers in the Pilot."
Wife: "Do they need to be swapped?"
Me: "Yeah, they suck!"
Wife: "How much are new speakers?"
Me: "No, per pair."
Wife: "Oh, okay."
$700 later, I'm looking for some bass! But yeah, I would definitely recommend some good separates if the budget affords it...
Foolish mortal. That's what we all say at the start. I just wanted better sounding speakers. Then after that, hmmm... The stock head unit really bites, perhaps a new head unit. Then... what would it sound like if I added an amp? Finally... I bet it would sound really sweet if I added a sub. But I have to amplify it because I'm using a non vented enclosure. Oh man... we are so pathetic! :2:tim.s said:Funny :2: I had the exact same conversation with my with a couple weeks ago. I doubt I'll go much past the doors and dash speaker upgrade...but we'll see.
then you said this...Ferdball said:
After deciding that the sub wouldn't fit in the factory location, I went to the local install shop and bought a box. The RFZ3410 calls for a .75 cu ft sealed box, and I found a perfect one for $70. The back of it fits the angle of the middle-row seats, it has gold-plated terminals and it feels solid.
So far, it sounds better then the two 6.5" bazooka tubes. It hits the lower frequencies better, seems to be fairly flat, doesn't have a sweet spot, and I can turn the gains up higher.
Are you saying that the sub upgrade wasn't worth the price or that it isn't any better?Ferdball said:
So, for you other 80,000 Pilot owners, don't bother trying to upgrade the factory sub. Now if you'd all just send me $.02 via PayPal... :5:
My last venture is to get the steering wheel controls to work with the head unit. I found one that work with some Ford vehicles, but not the Honda. Does anyone have a solution for this?
