I want to install new speakers/tweeters (front & rear) and also install either a 2 or 4ch Amp. No subs.

Is the Clarity 2019 Hybrid radio compatible with amps? I noticed the Clarity radio even has a Sound setting for subwoofer volume but I don't think it's obviously doing anything.

Again, I don't want a sub but I'm assuming there has to be some external output for the radio to connect to an aftermarket AMP for the Front & Rear speakers to have some extra power.

The current Honda speakers rattle too much in the front even with low bass settings. The treble is also extremely sensitive and rather too high if I barley increase the treble. My favorite sound settings (using Sirius compression or USB/CarPlay hardwired music) is Bass +1or+2 above middle. Mid is -3or-4 below the middle. Treble is at the center or +1 above. But I still have to increase the volume almost to the max to enjoy most musical my kind of loud without distortion.

Edit: Last quote I got was well over $2,000 USD including install and accessories for 4 speakers (front = speakers and tweeters, rear= no tweeters) and one multi channel amp. Just the speakers was around $1,100 with install. I dunno if it's due to WW3 prices or what but I'm gonna keep looking around the area.

Interesting I just completed this very activity. I read all the posts on here from others and I decided as others have decided to go with the JL Audio and I ordered from Crutchfield JL Audio C1-650 I did not install them my self but I bought the speakers and then I also bought this sound dampening products for all the doors being these two products https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00URUIKAK/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and this https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07TKXMPH7/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1. I have not felt the need to replace car speakers since the 90's but the clarity's are quite poor and the noise level of the car is poor in my opinion also. So when they replaced the speakers they put in the sound deadening the butyl rubber to the outer most part of the door and the foam to the inner most part of the door. I can tell you I was surprised at how much better the sound was it was night and day for me and with the noise level reduction also. I may eventually do more sound deadening but I thought this was very worthwhile. Cost of install labor for me in Atlanta was $800. Hope this helps you!
