1989 Civic Hatchback DX Audio Setup

Post by Prince_Urg »

I was just wondering what sort of potential an 89 Hatchback DX has audio wise. Other than the two speakers on the left and right door panels, I am not sure where it is possible to put more. Does the car come stock with more speaker areas just without the speakers? Thanks you guys.

(Sorry for the sort of dumb question, still new to this entire thing)

Some jdm models had speakers hanging from the roof lining. You can put them just about anywhere if you want more.

There are rear speaker mounts that where optional when you bought the car at the dealer that screw into the rear shelfs the wiring for the rear speakers is already in place behind the plastic panels I have a pair for sale if your interested but I would get the car running better before you worry about sound :D

Yeah that sounds like a good idea. Thanks for the help! If I do get it running well enough I'll let you know about those speakers especially seeing how we live in the same state.

Put some decent 6.5" coax in the door and a 10" sub in the back - with that small cabin you'll have tons of sound. I run 120w amp to my fronts and about 240 to my sub and it is pretty impressive. I also have a 8" ported I throw in every once a while and that little sucker will flex the roof on the ol' girl. Just amp it - and you'll have plenty of sound!
