if you are driving a MY wagon or sedan it sounds like the fuel pump is trying to prime or is running.

this is a guess by the way, as the type of subaru it is year and any other information, Pictures, video...ETC would help as well. :)

It's a bomb! Dive out of the door, and keep low as you scramble to safety. Forget about calling 911, because whoever planted it is doing you a big favor, if it is insured that is.

That actually sounds like the fuel pump to me. Mine does this too. When you turn the key to run but haven't started the vehicle the fuel pump primes the carb bowl on a timer. The fuel pump makes a rapid ticking type sound when pumping, but once you start the car the engine is louder so you don't hear it anymore.
