Factory tweeters from an ex?

I was wondering if the factory tweeters that come in an ex or above are plug and play on my sport? Factory prewired?

No it is not. You will need to custom wire. I did it to my Sport. Bought the sail panels from Majestic Honda and the tweeters from a member on here.

I'm surprised that the US version of the sport model only comes with 4 speakers. I live in Vancouver BC and my sport came with 6 speakers. 2 in the rear 2 in the front and twitters.

You wire up a capacitor then? I'll be doing this at some point...obviously not with factory stuff though.

You can put in components relatively easy. The factory speaker wire just ties into a crossover, and then out to your woofer and tweeter. You have to find a creative way to mount an aftermarket tweeter into the sail panels, but its straightforward.

It's still at the store until you buy it :-D. Factory front speakers are coax's.

Right, so you'd need to run a capacitor (not sure why I called it a resistor...weird) if you put tweeters in a sport/lx

If you put in aftermarket 'components' then yeah the x-over comes with it...if you're into that sort of thing. Active is where it's at my friends

Yes you need to add your own cross over, regardless of which method you prefer.

Installed the Polk Audio db6501 component system in my 9th gen Sport.

I just replaced (as in yesterday) my factory front door speakers with the Polk Audio db6501 6.5" component system with crossovers from ebay. I purchased the factory sail panels from the EX that hold the tweeters (Part no. 76220-T2A-A11ZA and 76270-T2A-A11ZA) from hondapartsnow.com. I also ordered the Metra 72-7800 Honda and Acura Speaker Adapter Harness Connectors from amazon.com.

Getting the tweeters installed was as easy as popping them into the new sail panels and then installing the new sail panels onto the car. When Crutchfield says the db6501s do not fit, they are correct. I used the stock mounts to mount the new speakers. It took a slight modification (totally destroying the factory speakers) to get the woofers in the doors. The factory speakers need to be cut out of the mounts as mentioned before and mounts need to be trimmed down so the rubber surround of the Polk speakers do not rub against the door panel when the speaker is mounted. It really was quite simple and I had it all done in an hour or so.

I'm happy with the Polk Audio kit and would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice upgrade to the rather mediocre stock sound system.

Of course, you are in Canada, that is to be expected. I hear you guys get a gold brick in the trunk since Honda is in love with Canada and treats the US market with utter disdain.

Well put. I have the laughable 360W "premium audio" and would not recommend one single component from it. The more I listen, the worse it sounds. It did not help that I picked up an 07 MDX Tech/Nav that has the superb Acura ELS audio. My accord sounds like a tin can next to it.

I installed the 6501s in my door using the brackets that came with them, and they fit with room to spare.
