    2010 WRX HU swap with Media Hub and Factory Sirius

    Hey guys,

    I had been searching for the answers to a couple questions regarding swapping the HU in my WRX but wasn't able to find anything definite regarding the Factory Sirius and Media Hub. I did the HU swap with a Pioneed Avic-x710bt over the weekend and got my answers.

    As I suspected, the media hub has a proprietary connector to the back of the stock clarion unit, so it was unusable with the new setup. The AVIC has USB anyway, so that's not a huge deal for me.

    The factory sirius unit's antenna IS usable with the Pioneer (and I assume everyone else's) CD-SB10 and SCC-1 setup for Sirius. The stock clarion Sirius unit obviously wouldn't work for me since I went with a Pioneer HU.

    The stock antenna connector has a thick pink plastic housing on it, but if you break that housing off, it'll connect and work with the SCC-1 Sirius Unit. It saves you having to run a new one, at least.

    Obviously if I was able to do it again I wouldn't have gotten the media hub or sirius in my car when I bought it. Live and learn, I guess. Hope this saves someone else a couple hundred bucks.

    Thanks for the reference.

    I've learned when I buy a car, to avoid any extra options such as bose/nav. Chances are I'm going to replace the sound system anyhow. The more options, the more money I'm a.) Throwing away, and b.) The harder it is to replace the system.

    Still flustering.
