    I’m no audio aficionado, but my brand new Premium has hardly any bass. Turned all the way up to +9, you can barely hear any bass and it certainly doesn’t hit like even my 2009 Mazda did… I don’t have the Karmon upgrade but I expected a LOT more from the audio of a brand new car in 2022...

    Hey I need a cat back exhaust with a muffler so I can pass inspection. Any tips? I’m looking for some noise but not too much. (I’ll get uel headers later on” but not lookin to spend more then like $350

    So seeing a post recently about "where" the horns are located, it made me want to ask the question ... What's your horn sound like? For example, on my 2014 SJ Forester 2.5i Limited, it sounds like a typical Japanese "meeep" horn - kind of moderately deep pitch, maybe with an electric guitar...
  4. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    New to this forum! So I bought a 2003 Forester XS in the spring and have fallen in love with it. In June it saved us from a deer crash and I brought her back to life. Now there is a thumping noise coming from the rear, I think passenger side. It doesn't show up until I'm going at least 25mph and...

    not sure what it could be. initially thought it was a squeak from the foam around the spare tire underneath the cargo mat. added some friction tape and determined that the sound of the foam squeaking and the creaking that i'm hearing are different. any other thoughts as to what it could be...

    Started having an issue with my speakers. I can still hear the music playing but is sounds “fuzzy” or like I don’t have good signal. This happens with Sirius XM, and if playing music through my phone plugged in or through Bluetooth. The only time the music sounds normal is when it is on FM.
  7. EJ25 - 2.5L Turbocharged (2004-2013)
    I’m having trouble finding out where this noise is coming from. It’s a whining noise that, to me, sounded like a bad belt at first. This noise does not occur at idle or when I rev the engine in neutral. The only time I hear this noise is when I’m accelerating while driving; not when my foot is...
  8. EE20 - 2.0L Diesel
    I've owned my 2008 Diesel Outback for some months now, but there are still some things I don't understand. When driving 50-110km/h I sometimes get a high pitch, metallic clicking sound. It sounds like a loose screw, vibrating fast. It lasts for a couple of seconds, sometimes longer. Is this...
  9. Brakes
    Hello, first time posting here. I have a 2000 forester L automatic with about 59,000 miles on it. I recently had my pads and shoes replaced, and had the shop resurface my drums (rotors didn’t really need it, and I am on a tight budget). Braking power is normal and fine after. The issue is a...
  10. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    I noticed that my EJ20 non-turbo Forester (5 speed manual) has a continous deep rumbling sound at ca. 2900 RPM. It is independent from gear, speed, temperature, load, and it is not a noise, but the engine/exhaust itself in operation. You can say that, Its a Subaru, why i not enjoy the boxer...
