Is using the AudioControl LC2i possible instead of LC6i?

How many speaker level inputs does my car have so I can connect to a line output converter?

lc2 is only meant for sub.. you don't want it anyway, because it modifies bass frequencies and generally makes the sub sound like garbage.

I just bought a brand new 2012 Accord and I've been doing some research online and it looks like it's more difficult to replace HU than it used to be. Would I be throwing my money away if I just went with aftermarket speakers?

I used to have a 91 Accord with great aftermarket speakers, sub, amp and HU and I am very disappointed in the setup in the new car!

Thanks for your input.

I was just wondering, everyone is talking about keeping the HU, but then they say to add an amp. how the he'll is everyone getting an RCA hook-up to control the sound? I get running amp wires, kill switch, but the RCA , please someone help. I'm getting a 2006 civic, and I want to use my old sub without changing headunit

4 year old tread but anyway if you read all the posts it explains how to keep a stock HU and add an amp/amps there are 2-3 ways to do it. 94

So my question is, is it possible to get the same sort of sound as an aftermarket headunit if I get a sound processor and a amp?

Also, what is a good site to buy audio instead of Sonic Electronix? I want a place where I can buy everything, and buying locally is not an option due to prices, and poor selection. Also, I live in Canada, so I don't get free shipping like some of these places offer, and that's why I prefer to keep the purchase in one place to save on the shipping.
a great site for buying car audio components is www.crutchfield.com. The website will tell what fits your car and they will provide any extra hardware you need for the install. They also provide detailed instructions.
