you all are crazy!!! i have always had loud crazy stereo's in my cars and plan on upgrading my new civic when i can but the stock stereo is pretty damn decent. My buddy owns a stereo shop here in the Pacific Northwest aka WA State. he told on based on the way the stereo is designed on the new civic the power so speaker ratio has a cap on it so you cant blow the speakers.
and if you notice the volume cuts off at like 34-35, and between 35-40 are just numbers not actual volume getting louder.
Also i listen to a lot of music at between 30-35(Max 40 same thing) and it sounds crisp as a bell. it just matters the song, the bass in the song, your sound settings you have on your deck, etc.
most songs sound perfect at max only a few songs with real deep bass sound kinda blah when going passed 30.
So rock out with your music and dont be afraid you should not be able to blow the speakers!
****Note i listen to my Zune HD on the Aux with 320kbps tracks.
