    Question 2012 Stock Stereo Connections

    My 2012 WRX hatchback is on order so my mind has been racing. I know that the stereo is supposed to be horrible, so I'm trying to figure out what to do about it easily.

    What connections are on the back of the stock head unit? Any pre-outs for an amp? And has wiring already been ran to some location in the car for the subwoofer connections or do I need to run the cables all myself?

    Thanx in advance.

    Hey etnpnys,

    Did you ever check out your stereo? If so, was pulling the head unit out very complex? I've been thinking about adding a sub myself.

    Thanks,
    Brian

    I haven't yet. I'm not an audiophile but I find the sound to be pretty good as long as I'm not listening to one of the built-in tuners. Stick with Bluetooth or iPod and you should be much happier with the quality.
