    Interior, Audio, and HVAC
    Hello xv users! Brand new to the forum and I've come for some advice and guidance on doing a full audio upgrade in my 2018 crosstrek (6.5" screen, non-upgraded audio system) which I bought back in April. I'm a bit of an audiophile and mostly listen to bass heavy music. Before buying the...

    Interior, Audio, and HVAC
    Hey there! I'm new to the forums! Anyhow, over the past couple months I had been acquiring components to upgrade what was the lackluster fujitsu nav head unit in my 2013 crosstrek. Finally the AVH-4200NEX has been installed for the past couple weeks and I'm loving it. Now on to the speakers...

    Hi all, I will be posting some pics soon and will make a thread keeping up with all of my upgrades, exchanges, and so on. I bought it for the fuel economy and ability to pull.

  8. 'Through Mode' for the Navi/Anything to help the awful sound

    Interior, Audio, and HVAC
    Looks like there is a simple answer on how to fix the terrible sound quality for the base and upgraded head units, but does anyone have any details on how to fix the sound quality on the nav head unit? The highs are tinnie and unclear, bass is so so, the end of every spoken word on the radio...
  9. Underseat Subwoofer

    Interior, Audio, and HVAC
    Hey guys and gals, I was looking for some advice on hooking up an under the seat sub in my XV. I have the following factory head unit installed: From reading around it doesn't look like this unit has any sort of pre-amp output meaning I'd have to tap into my speakers for a connection. I'd be...
