I've read pretty much every audio thread on this forum, but I didn't get the sense of a definitive answer
I want to upgrade my wife's 2011 wrx audio system, I knew it sucked when we bought it, but I've been driving it a lot lately and realized how bad it actually is
She's not an audiophile and isn't into massive kicking bass
The most important thing would be maintaining the usb connection to the ipod and the steering wheel controls
I was looking to drop about $500 or less
so what is the best and cheapest way to upgrade the stock stereo?
replacing the stock speakers?
adding a power amp to the stock head unit?
Replacing the stock head unit?
And if I replace the head unit, what unit should I get that will allow me to keep the stock usb and steering wheel controls?
