  1. 2015/2016 ANC location?

    Mobile Electronics
    Has anyone figured out where the ANC is located for the 2015 or 2016 CR-V EX-l model? I could not find it behind the glove box nor to the right of the glove box as is the case with 2017+ CR-Vs and civics. I have not been able to find this information on the 2015/2016 cars. I did find a Pioneer...
  2. CR-V 2013 EX-L Head Unit Install - Very Difficult

    Mobile Electronics
    Hi everyone, I have made the (maybe mistaken) decision to try installing a new head unit in my 2013 CR-V EX-L by myself. Now I'm pretty stumped. I have familiarity with speakers / electronics in general so am giving it a shot. However, I'm currently stalled out and frustrated because I thought...
  3. Amp mounting locations - 5th Gen CR-V

    Mobile Electronics
    Hey All, not sure if this has been discussed before or not in another thread. I'm just wondering if anyone has successfully mounter their aftermarket amps under the drivers or passenger seats in their 5th Gen CR-V, and was there enough room under there? If so what amps are you running? :)...
  4. Adding underseat subwoofer

    Mobile Electronics
    I was considering to use 8" component speakers with ANC active vs using amplified sub without ANC, just to add enough bass to stock EX stereo. After considering cost and the options that I can select from, I ran the car without ANC for a week and I don't feel any noise issue in the cabin so I...

  6. Subwoofer wire lengths.

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Hey guys. I had a subwoofer that I installed in my civic and ripped it out once I sold it. I'd like to install it into my new CRV 2019. But am worried the wire lengths may not be long enough? My CRV is in the shop right now so I can't make any measurements. Anyone here have a general idea of...
  7. How to connect the 2018 CR-V head unit to an aftermarket amp & subwoofer?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Hi, I was wondering if anyone has tried to replace the factory subwoofer in the rear of the 2018 CR-V with an aftermarket amplifier and sub? Is there a dedicated factory-installed amp that's connected to the factory sub or is the signal coming directly from the head unit? Has anyone built or...

    Mobile Electronics
    so, what I am trying to do is put a non OEM enclosed sub/amp under the front seat. because our radio/head unit does not come with a RCA out or sub out jacks, I was wanting to use the OEM cable that goes to the OEM subwoofer and use that for the line in. Using this would allow me to cleanly...
  10. No signal to subwoofer? 2017 EX-L

    Mobile Electronics
    I had after market speakers installed in doors. An amp and Fix processor as well. Later I went to have a sub installed. Shop said they could not get a signal to the sub. Not even a poor one. Due to time, I was unable to leave it another day for trouble shooting. Question...why is there no...
  11. OEM Subwoofer

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    The so called subwoofer in my 15 EX-L with "premium" audio is...lacking. I had a very similar factory sub box in a Harman Kardon system in another vehicle that had a woofer with a dual voice coil that was much more effective than the Honda's. I was hoping to find a neat plug-and-play solution...

  13. Honda CR-V 2012 Subwoofer

    Mobile Electronics
    Has anyone tried to JUST replace the 5 1/4" subwoofer in the under-passenger seat enclosure? I have seen some incredible excursion videos on youtube for some 5 1/4" subs. The Mazda 6 has a stock Bose subwoofer that is 5 1/4". This seems to be a very easy and cheap replacement pathway for those...
  14. 08 EX-L with the subwoofer standard?

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 CR-V
    I'm looking at an 08 EX-L with Navi. I've tried some research but found no definite answer. Thought I'd try the forum. Does the subwoofer come standard in the EX-L with Navi? Or is it possible that someone could order an EX-L with Navi and opt for no sub? I won't be able to get into the car...

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V

  16. Amp & Subwoofer issues with 2017 CRV LX (just installed)

    Mobile Electronics
    When i accelerate between 1000rpm and 1800rpm the sub pounds like a mofo. My amp has a built in LOC. Been using the same amp for 4 cars. I used pin 25 as remote wire and used the front speaker leads from the head unit. Does my car have active noise cancelling or is that just higher up...

    Hey guys. I saw Scino's post about upgrading his CR-V and decided to document my upgrade as well. First off, I need to thank Scino for the work that he's done. He's put a great amount of leg work into this. I'm going to try to take as many pics as I can of the major steps. I've installed...

  20. Adding a Subwoofer

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I have a 2017 EX on order, and from everything I'm hearing, it sounds like adding a little extra bass may be in order. I'm not looking for anything terribly loud, just looking to add the tiniest bit of bass. That being said, does anyone have any opinion on either of these: (can't post links...
