ok, what is about this night and day difference?
I just installed a Pioneer headunit and the sound quality sounds very wierd... well the treble is pretty nice but damn the bass... the stock head unit had MUCH more satisfying mid range sound. The bass really turned to crap with this headunit, sounds like cheap bass. The Stock cdplayer had some pretty GOOD midrange sound and some satisfying bass. whats up with this?
EDIT: ok that is my initial impressions from listening right after installation so it might be just a kinda "culture shock" to how differently it sounds from stock. Ill mess with the custom settings equalizer and see how it goes with more listening. Thing is, it really does sound a bit lacking.. something is missing after replacing headunit, maybe it needs better speakers, amp, subwoofer, amp to REALLY complete it

Given that WRXs and STIs have a lot of road/suspension/engine noise, it will also throw off the already poor acoustics of a car. Not to mention the speakers are really crap in these cars, and that is WITH a "Premium" sound system. The only adequate way you will reproduce bass is with some kind of subwoofer setup. You can increase bass and midrange with better aftermarket speakers, even the basic Pioneers from Best Buy or something. Just as long as its something better. If you really want better sound though, amp up aftermarket interior speakers and you will hear much better midrange.

I spent around $1,500 including installation on the following set-up that I'm very happy with. Only thing I'd do differently is skip the rear speakers. Also, I'm not a huge bass guy, so my powered sub is probably not on par with most other guys...
HU: Pioneer/Premier DEH-P880PRS
Amp: Alpine MRPF250
Fronts: Memphis MSQ6 6.5" components
Rears: Memphis MC6 6.5"
Powered Sub: MTX X110P 10"
Im running a stock 2.5i 06 speaker setup with an aftermarket Pioneer head unit w/ipod hook up.
I was wondering what kind of speakers I should upgrade to? The HU does a lot to make use of the current speakers, but they ultimately suck. I dont wanna amp a crappy set of speakers.
I was wondering if i should just trade out the two fronts ones, and amp all four and throw in another amp/sub box in the trunk for the added bass.
Lemme know what you all think
