The 2016 Honda Civic Touring comes with a new sound system. Packing 10 speakers and 450 watts, it's the Civic's most impressive factory sound system yet.

    The Touring's system has had numerous complaints about "subwoofer rattle" that hopefully will be addressed in 2017+ models with additional dampening material needed. I have the EX-T, so I "just" have the 8 speaker setup and frankly I think it sounds great. Once they fix the rattling issue on the Touring, that + included Sensing ($1k option and tough to find on other models) + LED lights (only trim to get them) would make it a worthy upgrade over the EX-L. To me, the EX-T is a sweet spot if you don't need leather.

    I don't really see the point of an upgraded sound system in a car, particularly those high end systems you can get in luxury cars. The external wind and tire noise drowns out any detail you might hear anyway. As long as I get the functionality I need (USB connectivity, bluetooth, satellite radio, etc.) the base systems are usually plenty good enough.

    It's not premium until it has a volume knob!

    10 speakers are pretty impressive. I mostly listen to news and traffic reports, but for long trips, I'd like some music. I get it; the sound system adds a level of ambiance, and is an important upgrade for the young and dating.

    I get by quite well with the 'touch slider' volume control (mounted on the steering wheel), thanks very much. I don't need a volume knob! Love the Touring's sound system.
  • DTS Neural surround is actually meant to work with certain broadcasts and audio sources that mix 5.1 discreete channels into a regular stereo mix. It is similar to Dolby Pro-Logic surround in that respect. Turning on Neural Surround separates the channels again and plays them through the audio system's 5 channels. Judging by the info published by DTS, it should be left off for regular sources.
