:help: For all those that test drove the Si and EX coupes:

How did the sound system compare to the LX coupe? I see the 190 watt difference in soundsystem and the extra subwoofer, but is it all that great of a difference? And where is the sub locate? (I heard it was in the read window panel in the middle)

And if so, can the sub woofer be replaced by something like a JL 8w7?

Thanks!!

I don't think the Si is available for testing yet. They won't be shipped until November/December (after SEMA).

But I would like to hear how the sub sounded too. :)

The EX Coupe has the same sound system, and it should be arriving at dealerships this or next week. Someone could test it.

I didn't realize the EX had the same system or I would have tested it out. There were 2 EX's at the dealership by me - One with nav, and one without.

I can't get to a dealership today probably, but I'll try tomorrow.

Alright guys, well the Coupes don't get to my area until mid november (so say the dealer guys). So I won't have a chance until then to find out, but I figured the ride and drive guys would know about the sound system. It is the one thing that might make me get the EX instead of the LX (I mean what else really is there?).

EX- has the power sunroof standard.
LX - Not available.

EX- Stereo - 350 watts 7 speakers/sub
LX- Stereo - 160 watts 6 speakers

EX - Seats- 64/40 split rear folding seats.
LX - Seats still fold - but fold as 1 solid piece. No split.

EX- Wheels - 16" alloys
LX- Wheels - 16" hubs

EX - Navigation option
LX - No nav option

EX- Steering wheel controls for audio/cruise
LX- no audio/cruise controls on wheel

Those are basically the differences you'd have to take into consideration.

Wow...we're getting some coupes in our area like next week according to the delivery sheets at the Honda dealer. Make sure your dealer isn't thinking of the Si. Sometimes they get easily confused.
