    I just bought a 2003 CR-V with 40K miles on it. I'm looking into doing a few upgrades (new receiver, back up camera, etc...), but there seems to be a lot of rattling noise from the speakers. Has anybody else encountered this? I'm wondering if I need to replace the speakers.

    Mobile Electronics
    Hey guys, I just got a wiring kit to install my amp and sub in my 2015 CR-V. The model I got has a factory sub, but I was told I needed to use a Line Output Converter. I had thought I could just take the singal wires that go to the stock sub and splice My amp RCA wires into them. I went to...

    I have a 2001 CR-V (LX) and I'm trying to upgrade to some better speakers in the front and rear. I know that it's supposed to use 6.5-inch speakers, but it turns out that many/most 6.5-inch coaxial speakers will not fit the factory speaker cutouts without needing to cut the speaker holes and...

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    Does anyone have any experience comparing the 2017 CR-V EX and EX-L? I took the EV-L for test drive since the dealer didn't have an EX on hand. To be completely honest I really liked it, and it feels like substantial improvement over my 2012 Hyundai Elantra Limited. The audio in the EX-L was...

    Just upgraded from my previous 2015 CRV touring. The new 2017 appears to route all of the GPS systems voice navigation to the left speaker next to my leg, and possibly the one on the door near the window too. The old 2015 routed it to the front speakers on both sides. Is this the same for...
