I have used OEM adapters for Accord and Merc C Class in the past. I don't think any manufacturer has come up with OEM adapter for new civic.

Navinji, those are for old gen Civics. As far as we knowm there are no dash adapters for the new Civic.

a) I agree with Autophile. IB subs can be as tight as sealed. It is just hat the sub's T/S specs have to suit IB. I assume the sub used in the Accord does. The factors that also dictate the subs performance is sealing of the baffle as well as the trunk. I had a heck of job doing this in the poorly designed contessa (ended up going for TL) but with a car like the Accord or Superb it can be QED.
How does one ensure that the baffle and trunk is completely sealed?

I know about Dynamat and it's general application (thanks to t-bhp). I wanted to know that in this/similar case what all is damped and how.

JB, do you have pics of any similar install?

Finally what is TL (as mentioned by Navinji). Hope the explanation will not end up being like butterworth

I think I mentioned it in another post, but here it is again: http://www.8thcivic.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3534
It seems very hassly, but maybe worth it in the long term.

ST7677, the easiest solution in the short term may be to simply change the rear speakers to better 6x9 co-axials. Then once all these parts and stuff start becoming available, you can upgrade as budget/time permits. No point in letting your car be guinea pig.

Second, EX models in US come with sub in parcel tray as OEM, with same HU. So somewhere there should be a line out in the OEM unit.

Nope, the Indian civic head unit does not have a line-out. I have opened up a civic head-unit (trust me it's plain painful), only to realize that the effort was quite futile.

In most cars that have a OE sub, there are no pre-outs in the head units. The subs are usually efficient and light DVC subs powered with two channels of the head unit itself, and not an external power amplifier. I don't know about the EX Civic in the US.

You haven't specified the subwoofer size. If you take a 12" for instance, it's good to have it between 30-50 liters so that the sub does not suffer mechanically.

Ok if the size taken 12 inches then the vas confidering 30-50 liters would do a nice job.....but if the vas is more than 100 then it is better.......

Well, not really. That's very high for a free air sub. Although some guys do have it that high, it's going to have lower power handling for sure.
