    Hey Rich, my names Ryan. New to this forum but learned quickly that you're the guru. If you got the time, I'd love some advice.

    Objective: Upgrading 2 front, 2 rear, and 2 tweeters from stock to anything better than stock. Will be happy with aftermarket HU and speakers. Not going to have the car long enough to invest in sub + amp.
    Car: 2007 honda accord ex sedan, 315000 km on it
    HU: Upgraded to aftermarket unit in 2015

    Front: I'm hoping to replace with speakers that fit snug in the existing stock pocket, without an adapter. I'm not sure if 5.25 or 6.5 for the front is a better choice. If I have no choice but to use an adapter, do you have dimensions/diagram for custom MDF adapter that you used?

    Hope this catches you at a good time. Thanks man

    My wife's car is a 2012 Honda Civic and experiences battery failures.

    Question: After reading the ELD bypass information, I thought that a MCU (microcomtroller) might be a reasonable consideration. I suppose that thought came to mind since I retired from EE several years ago and now develop MCU applications for clients. Should I find the necessary Honda charging schematic information, I would even consider developing a Switched Mode Rectifier to not only control the battery float and charge voltages, but also increase the alternator's efficiency by reducing alternator reactance to also improve the alternator's power factor.
    I do ask for your input to help me better understand at point I would add this MCU application in a manner not to impact the Honda's CAN OBD2 data protocol.

    Your input will be greatly appreciated,
