    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...

    My 2014 Outback Ltd. 2.5 4-cylinder with Harmon Karman stereo failed spectacularly after California's mega-rainstorm in October. After the storm, just before we heard water sloshing around in the rear passenger footwell, we had turned on the radio, only to have it quickly go from staticky to...

    Will a stock Clarion stereo from a Gen3 (2005-2009) or Gen4 (2010-2014) Outback fit in a Gen2 console? Are the wiring harnesses the same? Should I anticipate significant trim (fitment) incompatibilities? I am liking the 86201FJ630 with the AUX port from Gen4 OBs. Thanks in advance.

    Hi All, I have a '22 Onyx XT with the 10" screen and I have to say there are so many problems with the infotainment system. Sometimes it flat out just freezes and I have to reboot it. This is a pain while driving for it will turn off Eyesight, temperature controls, etc. (this is what you get...

    So I'm thinking about changing the stereo of my outback and I'm going ahead and getting down the game plan of what I need to get and do. I have the Premium model with 7inch LCD, but what I'm most concerned with is if I remove this head unit, are there any features I will lose, such as eyesight...

    The '22 OB's without the HK stereo system are just horrid. Coming from a Fender sound system in a '16 VW GTI (best OEM stereo I've ever owned in a car) to the one in my Onyx XT has been rather lackluster. I know it's just a stereo and I can still hear the music, but I'm a musician and a music...

    2010 Outback v6 (HK speakers with power amp). I switched out the stock headunit with a Pioneer DEH-S6220BS. There is no sound from the front speakers. Fade is set to balance, but even when I turn it all the way to the front, there's no sound from the front speakers. The back are fine. Any...

    My 04 second gen outback had none of the speakers working when i bought it. The previous owner said that they stopped working one by one. I doubt that they are blown out because it seems like they dont make noise at all where if they were blown they would just sound bad i imagine. I dont think...

    Hello All, I own a 2016 Subaru Outback with he Harmon/Kardon stereo system. I want to add a line out converter after the Harmon/Kardon amplifier. If I can avoid it I don't want to cut the speaker wires. Does anyone know if there is a wire harness adapter I can plug into the speaker out end of...

    Hi I've seen a lot of discussions around this subject earlier but can't find a fix to my problem. I bought a Outback III 2.5 automatic a month ago and I'm loving it. The only thing is the display on the stereo and clock won't work but everything else works. And I'm just looking around to see if...

    I was trying to remove the stock stereo in my 2006 Outback and it seems to be locked into the dash. All the screws are removed, and the stereo is loose and moves around, but it is locked into place with some metal wire running through a plastic piece that seems to be fitted to the bottom of the...

    Hey so I just brought a 2010 outback and the map is so outdated, i do have a aftermarket stereo that i had in my forester but had issues getting the steering controls working. There is someone selling a 2013 sat nav oem is it worth it?

    I thought I would do a write-up about my experience in upgrading the audio system in my 2014 Outback Limited. First, I replaced the stock radio with a Pioneer DMH-C2550NEX. I am very pleased with this model, but if I had the money, I think I would look for one with wireless android auto. It...

    (2001 Outback 2.5) I just replaced the stock stereo with an aftermarket unit. Been having a WEIRD problem with power supply to the unit. Not sure how or why but occasionally the unit does NOT get power when starting the car. Stereo will work fine for a day or two and then when I go to start the...
  16. Gen 6: 2020-Future
    The under performing audio systems in the 2020 Outbacks have been frequently criticized here in the forum. As too has the unavailability of the Harmon Kardon (HK) audio upgrade in the popular Onyx trim line. Let us also not forget the apparently forgettable Rockford Fosgate (RF) upgrade that...
  17. Gen 6: 2020-Future
    @RocketMan20 raised an intriguing idea - people who have upgraded their HK system could sell their old speakers to those of us who have the base system, or the RF upgrade. Anyone got pics of HK speakers that they removed? For reference, the stock base front door speakers from the Onyx look...

    I've got a 2005 Outback that we've owned for about eight years now. It had 80k on it when we bought it and it's pushing 200k now and while mechanically it's in great shape, it's recently developed a slightly annoying problem. Only on the driver's side, the vents either blow Very Hot or Very...

    2006 Outback XT My stereo, navigation, and brightest setting on the dash light dimmer isn’t working. Worked fine when I got out of the car. Stopped working when I got in the next morning. Also the climate control is turned off every time I turn the car on. Still works though. I solved it: It...
