stereo

  1. Interior and Electronics
    To start from the beginning, I recently bought a 2001 Forester, everything original. Absolutely nothing wrong with the car, but the speakers were blown to hell and back, so I figured it would be a cheap fix. Replaced those and everything was fine. Radio would sometimes not work. It would be on...

    For my '09 (factory stereo, no satnav, no steering wheel controls), I'm wanting to upgrade to a touchscreen that handles Apple Carplay. I figure I'll add in a backup cam at the same time. Ideally, the unit would have a manual volume knob (I'm oldschool about wanting to change/mute it without...

    Howdy, apologies in advance if this isn't posted in the correct discussion section. I have a 2016 2.0 XT Premium with the non-navigational head unit. I've run into a problem while being connected to my iPhone via Bluetooth where my songs or podcasts will randomly skip. Is there a way to remedy...

    Hey everyone, I just bought a 2021 Forester Sport. Until I completely overhaul my system with a Rockford DSP & 4 Channel Amp, new speaker cables, component systems, active subwoofer under the seat, etc...I had a question about the STOCK Non-Harmon Wiring Diagram, as I cannot find any...

    First time posting but here goes nothing. I recently purchased a 2009 Subaru Forester. The factory touch stereo wasnt working, so my buddy decided he would help uninstall it and put in a new one for me. Subaru's and car stereo installations are new to me, but trusted this friend...welp. He cut...

    Hello friends, I have an 04 X with auto trans and a JDM 2.0 swap (most of this is probably irrelevant but i mention it anyway) For a while now my stereo has been acting strange. I have searched the forums with no one else experiencing this that I could find. When i put my car in ACC the stereo...

    Hi All, I’m wondering if anyone has some recommendations for a stereo & speaker upgrade for my 2002 Forester. Right now it just has stock everything so I’m looking to upgrade to something that’s USB/Bluetooth compatible. Also looking to upgrade front and back speakers. I really don’t know much...
  8. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    I recently upgraded the stereo on my Subaru 2014 with an Android head unit from Seicane. The head unit is really good for the price tag but I can not get 4 out of the 8 SWC buttons to be detected by the unit. While the volume and seek(both up and down) are detected by the unit, the call accept...

    I just purchased a double din/ gauge pod housing to install my Kenwood DMX7706s to replace the center dash box. I also purchased a Forester cubby and radio pocket storage tray to replace the radio dash. This is my current set up: Are there any video/tutorial to move my stereo into the...

    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... Not sure if these are the upgrade pack Kicker...

    Looking to install a new Pioneer Stereo that has a USB-C port in the back. I was thinking of the best option for using this port. Ideally I would run a USB-C cable from the port to the center console. My car doesn't currently have a USB port in there (only AUX) so I would probably have to...

    I'm about to upgrade my audio system again (It is an addicting apple to bite into...) and I'm trying to figure out if my stock electrical system will handle the job. I already have a JL JX1000D amp running two 10" alpine subs @ 2 ohms in the back, and aftermarket Kenwood head unit, that puts 20W...

    After driving on some washboarded gravel roads in Oregon my stock radio simply stopped producing any sound. It would turn on and the screen would show that the radio was changing channels and volume changing, but there was absolutely no sound. I ignored the problem for a while and then the radio...
