    OBW 2022 so using wired Apple Car Play and it generally works pretty well but I have a regular problem with volume levels When I am using Apple Maps, I am usually also using Audible to listen to books or Spotify to listen to music. Everytime I get in the car there are significant audio level...

    Hey, so I recently installed a couple amps in my 2021 outback. A year ago I added an 800 watt mono amp with a 12 in sub in the back. The amp pulled from the wiring running to the rear speakers. That worked great and caused no issues. I later replaced both pairs of the door speakers with kickers...

    Hi there! My audio (Bluetooth, CD, and radio) started cutting out while driving and then completely stopped working after I turned the car off and restarted it. I am not super familiar with the electrical system, but checked the fuse in the passenger compartment (#4, amp 15) and it was fine. Is...

    Hello! Have something curious: when changing volume (either up or down), it changes in two distinct steps. Such as, a small change on the button click and then another small change about 0.5 second later. Say, I press the up button 5 times, it will increase the volume instantly and accordingly...

    The amplifier under the passenger seat got water-soaked from a rain leak in my 2014 Outback Ltd. 2.5 4-cylinder with Harmon Karman stereo. We turned on the radio and heard and smelled an electrical short sizzle. I replaced the amplifier but the stereo still makes no sound, although the head unit...

    Ok so this is a weird one… on my 21 Ascent if I’m listening to radio/Sirius and use Siri to send/hear a text message it mutes whatever is playing on the front speakers and lowers the volume on the rear speakers. however on my ‘18 Outback it mutes the rear speakers and the front gets louder and...

    Hello everybody, I think this actually might be my first post after looking for a long time for technical advice. I own a 2013 outback limited with the Premium non-nav head unit, and I’ve been having a fantastic time getting this head unit installed. I am kind of losing my mind trying to find a...

    Driving along today with apple CarPlay and the audio suddenly became nothing but a high pitched buzz. All inputs. Gets louder with volume control. Tried resetting the audio twice, no success. Now there’s no sound at all, from any source. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    As the title implies, I'm curious as to how loud the speaker set up in my 2009 Outback should be. Even at max volume, it feels like most other vehicles at maybe 60% volume. It sounds great, I just wish there was more of it. Is this indicative of a larger issue or has my hearing gone to ****? If...

    I'm new to the Subaru world, don't even have 100 miles on my new Outback Limited, so I'm still figuring things out, but I'm confused by a discrepancy between the owner's manual and the settings menu. In the owner's manual it has a long list of audio settings, the one I was most interested in was...

    On my wife's new 2020 Outback when you adjust the audio EQ settings they revert back to FLAT the next time the car is started. My 2017 Outback remembers the EQ settings once set. Is this a flaw that can be repaired or is there something we are missing to get the car to remember the EQ audio...

    I ponied up for the RF audio upgrade and while it sounds good I am disappointed that the rear speakers are not included. In fact my rears are completely inaudible even with the fader set right in the middle and it sounds like a big void when listening to music. When fading to the rear those...

    After fussing with the admittedly lackluster 6-speaker system in my 2020 Outback Premium, I got it dialed in about as well as I could manage to sound as okay as possible on as broad a range of music as I tend to listen to without spending money on new speakers and amps and such, which is what...
  14. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Hello, I’m hoping I can find some help here as I can’t find anything anywhere else. I just bought a used 2011 outback 3.6 limited. It has the Nav and HK audio system. My problem is getting my phone (IPhone xs Max) to connect to the car. Maybe 20% of the time it will connect automatically at...

    I had a front dash speaker fail in my 2010 Limited (HK setup, no nav) and went ahead and picked up a set of Polk DB 6052 component speakers. To make a long story short, I'm trying to figure out where exactly to splice in the Polk crossovers to make everything sound right. I'm not an audio person...

    Hey there, recently been looking at upgrading the audio in my outback for two reasons, number one being that my driver side woofer doesn't work, hasn't for awhile now. And two being I just want better audio. However, I haven't seen much about it online. I'm not sure how to go about it, I don't...

Switched to media player; same thing. Figured it was the speakers but here's the thing. Radio sounds fine. AM, FM; no...

    Hello Outback enthusiasts! I recently purchased a 2020 Outback Outdoor XT (Onyx for the US; I'm in Canada) and everytime I take the car, my equalizer settings are back to factory default 0 - 0 - 0. Did anyone run into this issue? And of so, was anyone able to fix this issue? Thanks!
