    stock 6 disc question

    can you hook up an amp to the stock head unit in a 04 wrx?? does it have the rca plug ins or is their another way? not too familiar with car stereo stuff and figured its easier to ask you guys then to pull my dash apart checking.

    nope sorry no rca jacks in the back

    you can still hook up an amp but u have to get some kinda converter and it would not sound as good as an aftermarket head unit

    FYI - there aren't any RCA jacks on the '07 stock either. I did get it hooked up to an 8 inch bazooka powered sub. The tech at a stereo shop basically tapped into a speaker wire which then converted to RCA plugs. It sounds okay. Just enough bump in the trunk to satisfy me without waking up the neighborhood. The downside is that I have to keep adjusting the fader and bass levels depending on the music and whether or not it's a radio, cd, or ipod.

    We did that with my room mates car... and it sucked. After he got the aftermarket head unit his sound bumped up over 150%... it was insane the difference between stock and aftermarket head units.

    I am sure it would sound better w/ a better headunit. After the subwoofer installation, before I even left the store, I wanted to get the better headunit, bigger sub, better door speakers. I told myself to get out of there before it got out of hand. Still thinking it about though.

    well thats a bummer. i will probably just tap into the existing speaker wires, i dunno well see. if it sucks well then i guess thats just an excuse for a new head unit.
