  1. So I have a 1988 Subaru DL Wagon I got a few months back for $1400 with 60k miles runs great and It’s been my daily since February. But I’m wanting to upgrade the audio. I purchased the Metra 70-8900 harness adaptor, working on making a bracket to fit a new head unit but I realized with the set up I have I’m concerned that the alt and battery may need upgraded to compensate for the power I’m going to need for the amp. Has anyone done anything like this on their pre -90 Subie? I’m looking to install my 15s from my previous daily and the 1400w amp I have.
  2. I just bought a Crosstrek XV Hybrid over the weekend and I enjoying it. I listen to both radio and music via Bluetooth. The audio quality via Bluetooth is amazing and very loud and clear. The audio quality via radio is horrible and very soft and full of static. Does anyone has the same problem or is it just my car having the issue? I don't HD quality audio but it was horrible and not even close my old car. Thanks and appreciate any advice.
  3. Hi Folks, I'm new to this forum so don't make fun of me if I ask dumb questions! Considering either a new 2015 Forester or 2016 model. How do you like the quality of the audio in the Forester. We'll probably get the premium with the 6 speakers. We're also looking at the Toyota Rav4 but leaning much more towards the Forester. Anyway, if you have heard comments about the sound quality of the Rav 4, please way in. Sadly, I haven't really had a chance to listen to the audio in either car. I'm a little picky about sound quality. At home, I have a pretty nice audio setup (about 3k, albeit on the older side). Anyway, the system in my 2007 Mazda 5 (4 speaker), is the only thing I can compare the new cars sound to and the Mazda's audio is pretty ok. So if the Forester's is as good or better, I'll be happy, I think. Your opinions, please! Thanks in advance, Greg
  4. You could say I lucked out on this local craigslist find. 71k miles, rust, scratchless, spotless interior, all original and all electronics working flawlessly, 1986 front-wheel drive automatic XT Turbo. I'm a complete novice when it comes to modifications, but I want to upgrade the audio.....Replace the tape deck/am/fm unit with a modern deck, replace speakers, install small sub and amp. The sound system is complete crap. Anybody have experience upgrading these components in an XT? Any advice would be extremely helpful. Love my first subaru!
