Honestly there isn't much you can do without adding a DSP. Amplifier might have but it might still give you weird bass frequencies as well. But then I'm not a professional at this so someone else might be able to chime in.
Honestly it's hard to expect "good" audio quality from factory. You'll have to add something to enhance them. Good luck whichever way you decide to go.
This isn't a Jensen head unit, it's Fujitsu Ten.. Parent Company of Eclipse.
Anyway, the hunt continues. Your assumption that all OEM head units suck is probably well-rooted in Subaru history (The HU on our '05 Baja wasn't good), but I just can't imagine that it applies anymore across the board.
