6mt comes in exl in the v6 doesnt it?
a 6MT is only available with the V6 in the Coupe.

I drove the CVT yesterday and liked it. I noticed typical automatic tranny delays when rapidly changing speeds (like rapid acceleration) but the lack of shift points is neat. I spoke with the service techs and they agreed that the 6MT is fantastic. Both require fluid changes every 30k mi.

There are some grommets located at the foot well areas (should be at both driver and passenger sides).

See KHA's post #22 in this other thread for photo of his install:

Default 2015 Honda Accord sport

So I recently got a 2015 Honda Accord sport and like everyone elts not impressed with the sound system . So I bought 4 6.5 inch kickers to replace the factory . My question is , is there a factory amp in this car or is it part of the HU? If there is a factory amp where is it and is there any way you could replace that with an aftermarket one so I could just amp my speakers ? Or is there any easy other ways that you can amp the speakers . Looking to keep the clean factory look but have great SQ . If anyone could help that would be great ! Thanks !

The sport HU has the amp built in. i've personally opened up those radios to bypass the factory amplifier IC and create RCA outputs. even with that, the internal DSP filter is active (high pass filter and eq is non-adjustable.). best bet for good sound is a bass restoration DSP (i.e. AudioControl LC2i) or a factory EQ compensation DSP (i.e. JL Cleansweep) with an external amp.

Okay so I just installed my kickers in the front , not sure why but it sounds worse than it did with the factory ones in it ! What can I do to correct this and get the sound I'm looking for out of these new speakers with out having to pull apart my dash ...?
