  1. 2014 H/K Audio (No NAV) Upgrade

    Gen 4: 2010-2014
    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...
  2. Aftermarket Stereo Power Issues

    Gen 2: 2000-2004
    (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...

    @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...
  5. Can a 2005 Outback take a 2009 head unit?

    Gen 3: 2005-2009
    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...

    Audio, Video, Security, & Navigation
    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...
