    2008 WRX Stereo Backlighting Options

    So it didn't take long to figure out that the stock head unit needed to be replaced in this car. I am not looking to lose any trunk space but I am a music fanatic and want to find something that will sound really nice. I am planning on doing a 2 stage changeover, HU, then the speakers and tweeters later on when I have money.

    I also want something that will look clean. It seems like most H/U have all the features I need (DVD, Nav, Ipod, Steering wheel capabilities, Bluetooth). I am extremely picky with how it looks though and I want to find one that matches the stock interior lighting. I was looking at the Clarion NX500 and it seemed to be good, but I cant find out if it changes colours.

    Recommend any good options?

    You'll want a component set in the front (don't buy woofers/tweeters separately), and you'll need to amplify them, so factor that into the cost.

    For the H/U, if you go on the Clarion site, you may be able to download the user manual.

    So Im still pretty new to the car audio game... When you say a component set you mean?

    Basically I want to replace the H/U, then see how it goes from there. Do I need to do more at that point...

    Also, how clean does the sirius radio antenna end up looking after the install, I plan on burying most every thing I can and having it the spitting image of clean, but how clean can you get it?

    Coaxial are just speakers, while components have multiple parts (woofer, crossover, tweeter, and sometimes a mid-woofer).

    Good motto. No point continuing to throw money at it if you'll be happy with less spent.
