    Hey Everyone, first time here!

    My name is Slobo and I'm the subaru newb..
    Just got my 09 wrx last week, and this car is very nice. I've owned a 300zx twin turbo and 05 audi S4, this car is definately different!!!

    I'm looking forward to speaking with everyone, and making this car a little faster in the future of my ownership.

    One question, what is up with the factory speakers? I have to turn up the volume about 75% to be able to hear well...


    Talk to you later, and great forum!
    Some pictures of what I had, and what I have now. Enjoy!







    And WRX:






    Plan is to tint the windows first, then sound system. I can't believe how bad stock speaker system is...i guess i should have gone with the premium package or something..

    I freaked out the other day when i saw scratches on the roof and rear spoiler... turns out it was from glue when they shipped the car... I never had a brand new car, so i had no clue.

    I usually travel with my volume at 20-25 with windows up... If im highway driving with windows down its usually 30-35 ish... And thats generally loud enough...

    Congrats on the 09 I love mine its a great all around stock DD for sure...

    oh and I love s4's... Kinda surprised to see an s4 driver go to a wrx... Like you said very very different cars... But none the less you should love the car...

    did you go with a sedan or hatch?

    Umm not sure what you mean The posts are all defaulted to the top by most recent post... Aside from stickies they are stuck at the top thus the term stickie...

    s4's are amazing machines, thirsty motors or not or not they are fast... period...

    Welcome. Actually I am new myself. Just picked up my 09 WRX last week too. And my last car was an Audi. lol. Not the S4 though... just an A4.

    I am glad you asked, because I was wondering about the speakers as well. Seems like I have them around 30-32 for the AUX port, and around mid-hi 20s for the radio/CD player. Thought I was going deaf, but it sounds like it may just be the norm.

    I heard the same thing, but I also read that replacing the head unit made a HUGE difference. I was planning the AP first, but as a DD the stereo is important, too.
