  1. ('01-'02) 2002 - Stereo/Speaker Upgrade Recommendations?

    Interior and Electronics
    Hi All, I’m wondering if anyone has some recommendations for a stereo & speaker upgrade for my 2002 Forester.

    Interior and Electronics
    Hi all.... My car - 2014 Foz 2.5 Limited with the stock head-unit (Clarion CF625UM) with stock 6 speaker set up (dash tweeters, door mid-range/woofers) and while I'm mostly OK with the sound, I've found a deal on a set of WRX "Premium" speakers...

Ironically, I've never played the CD player but this dime is now bouncing around inside the player and shorting out my speakers so that all sound -- radio, phone, bluetooth-connected, whatever --...
  6. ('03-'05) 2005 XT - speakers, no sound from door tweeters?

    Interior and Electronics
    Today I noticed that the treble from my system was weak. Aft first I thought it was just the driver's-side door tweeter, but after experimenting with settings I found there was no sound from either door tweeter. The other door speakers and the console seem to be working normally. I doubt the...
