To me, the car was really high, maybe that's because I'm used to my 88 Accord which rides really low. After I installed the Maxspeed springs, it lowered around 1.5 to 1.75 inches. Ride is somewhat stiffer but you get used to it since the car's stock springs are kind of stiff too.
On Coilovers it's upto me how much I lower it, I give it a 1.5inch drop though.
Now about the speakers, since I mentioned this was a basic SQ upgrade, so main emphasis was on the front stage rather than the rear, that's the reason I installed components in the front and powered them through the amplifier, rear fills are being powered off the headunit, gives an effect similar to a surround system since the DTA works well in the headunit.
