#1 of 513 mods to my civic
Mar 14, 2001 (4:54 am)
after two years of owning my 1999 civic ex i was beginning to get bored. last year i installed a bozooka tube. please bear in mind that if you splice the wires it will void your new car warranty. couple of months ago i installed an air horn system. again all work was done by me without splicing any wires. ask here or e-mail if interested in details
#2 of 513 Mods and Warranties...

2k-EX. That could be relative. How did you hook up the Bazooka signal, speaker level? That voids your warranty - installation of a non-spec part. I swapped out the head/speakers with aftermarket units, and added a 10" passive bazooka. That effectively voids the stereo system.
Personally, I saw no point in getting a connector/adapter to mate between the factory dash wiring connector and the Blaupunkt CD-Player. What for, since you have to splice somewhere - I made my own custom distribution-block. Besides, you're still out of warranty the moment you installed the aftermarket head (irrelevant of keeping the oem connector intact).
I did, however, disassemble the speaker connectors and hooked up the spade female terminals directly to the Pioneer Front-6.5s/Rear-6x9s. No splicing, but still voiding the warranty - again, installation of non-spec parts (even though the oem speakers are Pioneer).
Finally, when you plan and verify every connection with a multi-meter, then specific warranties are relative.
#3 of 513 bazooka

the bazooka is connected at the speaker level, i just stripped the bazooka wire and stuck it in the connector on either side, ran a power wire from the fuse block (i bought "add a circuit" fuse block) and put in the spot where the lighter fuze was. if i have to take my honda to the dealer and i have a suspision that he will be a prick, i can easily disconnect the bazooka, and take it out. it will take less than a minute. i am a little bit weary of replacing the rear speakers, it seems like i would have to remove the hat shelf (rear shelf), the door speakers are easily replacable, but i haven`t done anything, because bazooka gives me enough base, so i don`t have to crank the stereo, and i don`t get to the point where the stock speakers start fuzzing.

Has anyone installed Honda's in-dash 6 CD Changer? The installation instructions were not clear on how to remove the 12v accessory part of the console prior to removing the main area of the console.
#5 of 513 Civic with aftermarket intake

Anyone tried AEN cold air intake as a performance upgrade on 98/99 civic? Is it too noisy ? Does it worth the expense ?
Any comments will be appreciated
#6 of 513 Adding AC after purchase.

Just purchased a 99' hatch back w/o AC. The dealer wanted $1,500 to install a Honda unit. Any help in how to get Air conditioning installed in the Boston, MA area for a reasonable cost, will be appreciated.
#7 of 513 Advice on CD player
Jun 13, 2002 (5:53 pm)
I'd like to convert my tape player to a CD player. I've been to Crutchfield--lots of choices. Does anyone have a suggestion.
#8 of 513 AEM Cold Air
Jul 24, 2002 (11:50 am)
The intake does give a big, throaty sound. I saw where the AEM Cold air intake was voted, " best thing to add to your car" I like mine. I have an 02 Civic EX
#9 of 513 CD player recommendation
Jul 26, 2002 (1:27 pm)
Just installed the Clarion DB225 AM/FM CD Player (with digital clock) in our 2002 Civic LX Sedan. Total price for the 50Wx4 player, including mounting kit and installation was $200.
The system is in a brushed aluminium color that blends perfectly with the other interior components of LX. The blue display is particularly impressive.
