I think the radio in the 06 is terrible. subaru didnt put any thought into it at all. they were only interested in the motor and power train which is completely awesome. but the factory radio setup sucks

Yeah I don't know about the 06's but the 05's stereo is nice, just the sound quality is crap only at high volume. But that's certainly not what I bought the car for.

Thanks newtothegame, You've got a nice ride there yourself. I love the car personally, it's not as quick/fast as my bugeye was, but this car has the potential to be something much more crazy.


Anyways, I never meant to say that the radio is the best out, because it's horrible compared to the endless possibilities that you get with aftermarket car audio. What I am saying is simply that it's pretty good for what it is. I like it.

the wrx is not designed to have a radio period, they used tio not have radios at all because of weight issues. i will agree the stock radios in these cars sucks but if you have few dollars laying around i would highly suggest investing in a HD ready radio and tuner, i have one and absolutely love it. we put it in my WRX when i sold my baja and we arent sure if it will work in the SVX so we have left it in the WRX. If you are going to get one though make sure you get it installed by someone knowledgeable! i had mine dones at HiFi buys before they pulled out of atlanta and they blew fuses in my dash board and also when they installed new speakers in my baja i was having to go back every 3 months because the didnt anchor wires in my doors correctly so they were shorting out. Best Buy or Circuit city would be best for installation.

I was only responding to the first comment about the radio. I could care less about the radio ill just buy an aftermarket when i want to, but the first guy said it "kinda rocked" and i think it really sucks. my opinion. i never bought the car because of the radio. I bought it for the performance and everything else. I dont even like to listen to the radio when im driving i like the sweet sound of the tbe and bov. thats why i bought it

no one ever buys a car for the radio, but people need to understand that the WRX is a rally car, the radio adds extra weight that causes it to be pushed out of a weight class, but if you are just driving one because you like the car and want a nice stereo, an HD is a nice way to go. although subaru does offer satellite radio in most of their cars now.

The stereo was terrible in my 06, I couldn't believe how quiet and weak it sounded. I only made it a week before having to dish out for a better system.
