Default Stock head unit subwoofer compatibility

Is the stock 09-10 head unit compatible with an aftermarket subwoofer? What I mean is, will it accept RCA's for a subwoofer? I really hope I wont have to do any modification or swap out the stock unit because I actually kind of like it... yes, im aware subaru makes an OEM unit.

thanks!

I believe you would have to use a line level converter to get RCA's out or check to see if the amp you would be using would have line level inputs.

No on the RCA output. A line out converter for a 2 channel, or 4 for a door speaker amp. They should be about 20 off amazon. PAC makes a good one.
You install it behind the factory radio and connect a set of rca's and run them to your amp. I'd recommend stinger 17 or 20 foot. Maybe $12
