What kind of speakers?

What do you people suggest? I don't want a boombox in the back which adds humongous weight, but the stock speakers on the S2000 is just sad. Will changing just the front two speakers make a difference on bass? Without changing deck nor amp...

What do you mean 'you people'?!?!
HAHAHA



Aftermarket speakers should make a slight difference.... New head unit AND speakers will definitely improve the sound quality.... I actually just got got a new HU, door speakers and roll bar speakers with brackets (almost looks OEM) with no amp or sub... HUGE difference...

I guess I'm crazy, I'd rather listen to the engine than a stereo in a sports car.

^ Good point VP... I love the sound of my car as well...however, sometimes you just have to rock out with your c*#k out! HAHAHAHA
For example, my 7.5 hour drive to Cali last week...

I went with kenwood speakers in the doors to replace the stock ones without having to modify anything, a Pioneer HU and Pioneer 6.5s with tweeters in the rollbars...Here's the brackets I bought: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...K%3AMEWNX%3AIT

I'll post some pics soon on the set up!

I changed my door speakers. It made a difference. I get more volume before the speakers distort. Before it was the speakers giving out first and now the new speakers can handle all the deck has to give. So you do get more bass though it's still not a huge amount to be honest. But it was a cheap and easy upgrade. I added Boston Acoustics S65RC's, no need to go overboard since I was keeping the stock HU. I think the cost was around $70.

i recently put a new headunit and infinity 6.5s in the doors, amazing difference compared to OEM, was about 120 bucks total and did the wiring myself.

there's not a ton of bass especially with the top down but its there if you turn it up, i dont like making a scene at the stoplights anyway.

I would recommend polk component speakers w/ tweeters $175. and 4'' polk coaxel speakers in the headrests (you can zip tie them to the mesh and it actually looks pretty stealthy) and makes a world of difference. remember to get a good amp to power all of those speakers 100w-120w per speaker and get a headunit as well.

Aside from the fact that almost all aftermarket speakers are designed to work within some kind of enclosure as opposed to being "freeair"

Dude I def know where your coming from I want two fifteens in every car I drive (specifically for boom) but
Obviously it would weigh the car down a lot, I just put a couple new speakers in the doors and it sounds significantly different than the stock system yet enough boom where it effects no weigh down of the car.

I switched to polk audio marine grade speakers (crutchfield was having a sale for 55 shipped) at the same time I went with an ap2 head unti (a little bit more power) and I added an ipod hook up

compared to the MY00 speakers I can actually listen with the top off on the highway and not have it cranked all the way up to hear the music.

they dropped right in with just minimal trim to the stock speaker buckets (just cut the back out) and they came with plug and play honda adapters which were free

over all for 55 bucks I'm very happy with the upgrade

I have Polk Momo speakers in the car and I had a Polk Momo 10" sub, but then the cone got detached after years of Texas heat so I recently bought a Pioneer 10" sub to replace it.

It hits really well while still being enjoyable.
