    New member from South Africa

    Hi all

    I'm Paul from Pretoria, South Africa.
    Just got my 2012 WRX Premium. Before that I had a '07 WRX and a 2.0R wagon. Wife is also on her 3rd Forester.

    Been hanging around here for a while, alot of usefull info here, especially to the audio upgrade of the WRX.

    Will post some pics later.

    Not a bad place to start. Check out my build thread, I replaced my Head Unti with a Kenwood Double Din

    Kenwood - DNX6190HD

    I also replaced all the door speakers with American Bass in the front and Kenwood in the back. Hopefully getting a stealth sub soon to mellow it out.

    Nice, my plan is to keep the stock HU, run a line driver from the rear speaker wires to a mono block and a 4ch amp, upgrading the front speakers with JL Audio splits and a JL Audio sub.
