Base from component speakers?

Are you saying that the active noise cancellation is picking up the speaker and cancelling out the sound? I don't think it can do that, but maybe? I did only listen to the Alpines with the door open... maybe it was getting picked up as engine noise? Hm...I haven’t tried it myself but from what I’ve heard using aftermarket speakers somehow effects the active noise cancelation function... maybe that’s just an issue if a sub is installed. Not sure why though.

I’m not exactly sure what the issues is with it. If I recall the issues I’ve read about it causes feedback. I’m not quite sure if it would be related to your issue at all, just thought I would mention it because of the issues I’ve read about in the past, to at least make you aware of them if nothing else.Are you saying that the active noise cancellation is picking up the speaker and cancelling out the sound?

Thanks for the reply Triaque! I haven't touched the sub and the Alpine was connected correctly, so I would expect the doors to be producing at least as much bass as they were with the stock speakers, right? Or are you suggesting that aftermarket speakers won't be able to play the lower frequencies off the head unit, so I should upgrade the sub to compensate?Your speakers in the doors are all connected to produce a + positive phased pulse as compared to the sub at exactly the same time index producing a 180 degree out of phase - negative pulse.
I have an app on my phone that “listens” to the sound from a test pulse and will determine the phase of each speaker. I find that Honda sometimes will have a wire crossed or a speaker winding crossed which will cause speakers to be out of phase.
The sub in the back is able to be upgraded using a beefier 2 ohm woofer/driver as long as you don’t go over about a 200 watt driver. The enclosure needs some enhancement by adding some polyfill stuffing evenly spaced inside the enclosure to harmonically “tune” the air volume inside to slow the sonic wave reflecting off the back of the inside. If you can get the polyfill just right, you will hear an amazing increase of real low end bass due to the pulse reflection returning to the back of the speaker cone as it moves outward.
There are loads of videos on youtube on how to do this.
Just a cheap shot in the dark, but is it possible that the Ody has its own sub amp separate from the head unit?Adding an amp that small really wont make that much difference. You would need a bit more power to realize the difference.
The neoprene adds elastomeric properties to the door skin if bonded with good compatible 3m spray adhesive. It’s much more difficult to install than any matting but the performance is unmatched. I used neoprene because mold mildew and moisture can’t penetrate it. Rather than just a foam pad. It’ll stink after it gets filth and moisture in it.
I always look for drivers with very high sensitivity for the size and type in its class. Your alpines were LOW efficiency.
I have a 2005 exl but the bass is still so powerful and deep even with the kids playing with it that I suspect that.Just a cheap shot in the dark, but is it possible that the Ody has its own sub amp separate from the head unit?
