General Information

Crystal Black Pearl
Interior illumination package.
Bought new, December 2012.
2012 Honda Civic (Crystal Black Pearl)


K&N drop-in filter (makes a wonderful difference to engine growl, even without an SI), Big-3 wiring upgrade with DB Link 1/0 gauge wire (does NOT make a difference with headlight dimming! basically just preparation for the day they produce a h/o alternator and when I get a bigger battery).
Honda Interior Illumination package (no, the pic isn't of my car, my camera just won't pick it up well), Doors/Trunk/spare tire well/trunk lid/rear deck deadened with multiple layers of peel & seal (dynamat equivalent), foamed with Great Stuff where applicable, along with sticky-backed foam weather stripping to get rid of rattle between plastics (impossible to completely get rid of with my system...). A more quiet ride and clean bass at low-to-mid volumes...
15% tint all around, removed pesky amber reflectors and corners in headlights, iJDMToy projector cree led switchback turn signals, iJDMToy super white halogen Xenon high-beam bulbs, DDM Tuning 6000k HID kit, One Industries giant Monster decal, RE Audio decal, JSP factory paint matched spoiler.
RE Audio 6.5C component speakers in the doors and replacing the stock tweeters up front on a Kenwood KAC-5204. In the trunk we have a little RE Audio SXX 15" 2 ohm DVC 1,000 watt RMS 2,000 watt max subwoofer in a Foxbox tuned to 36hz on a Rockford Fosgate T-1500BDCP with a birthsheet rating of 1,925 watts RMS at 14.4 volts. System meters at 144 decibels in the passenger foot-well.
For audio source, I'm bypassing the head unit and directly connecting my phone/iPad to my amps through the Rockford Fosgate 3-sixty balanced line driver for full frequency range and quality.

About to undergo some serious upgrades, currently waiting on a fully-loaded Fi SP4 15" driver (3,000 watt rms handling, and then some...), as well as a new custom enclosure to match... Going to run the same Rockford amp for a while, but it should be a HUGE improvement in sound and power on low freqs!
Wheel and Tire
5 layers of black Plasti Dip on the stock wheel covers. Corny? Iunno. Overdone? Maybe... But I love the look and they came out great! People are always having to look again cause they think they're rims... ?_?
