2003 Honda Civic GX Stereo and speaker upgrade
« on: January 14, 2014, 09:30:01 PM »
New to the Honda forum. I've been to 3 different aftermarket stereo shops in the Salt Lake valley and get 3 opposing point of views. Can a set of speakers fit in the factory location under the rear package tray in the 2003 Honda Civic GX. This is the CNG Civic with the tank in the trunk. One shop said yes no problem. One said shallow speakers in rear would work and one said the package tray would need to be cut and speakers mounted through a hole in the top. Has anyone here experienced this type of install or know of one and know for a fact if it can be done? Thanks in advance for any help offered.

I haven't had much experience with cng cars but I know that they do mount the tank right behind the rear seats which would make it pretty hard to put after market speakers in.

Yeah! I looked under the rear package tray and have approximately 3-1/2" to the top of the CNG tank. Based on the speaker dimensions, a pair of 2-way coaxial aftermarket speakers should fit under there. Thinking maybe I should take a chance and remove the rear package tray cover and try to set a speaker in the hole, to verify the fit for myself.

If you have the tools and the time I would give it a shot..... if its your first time dont be afraid to take some pics while you are tearing it down it helps a lot when you are putting it back together.
