Default 03 wrx rear bench seat

i was wanting to add some more speakers to my car and is it possible to put them in the bench seat support, like where you tighten the bolts for the seat. is there anything behind there that would be in the way.

amp is 2500 watts quantum audio, fosgate speakers 6.5'', and the subs are pioneer competition series, i personally dont like them I'm more of a pheonix gold or polk audio sub kinda guy.

If you want that to bump. You need to start with a good battery alternator and a cap for you system. Power your door speakers with a good 4 channel amp and then get some better suns with amp.

1st and one of the most important things with car audio/ subarus. YOU PAY FOR WHAT YOU GET!!!

In my car i have 2 kicker comp vr 12 in a 3 1/4 cubic foot box with a 340 watt infinity amp. And let me tell you this **** knocks. All my firends thought it was atleast 1000 watts untill they saw the amp.

Im not syaing this is a good system by any means. But if you dish out the extra cash it will be worth it. My froend has 1500 watts running to 2 boss audio 12 that say (1300rms each!!). And my 340 blows his outa the water.

Also. If your not looking to redo your car. Power thoose door speakers with a rockford amp. You will notice a differnce in the power drasticly

Lastly another thing to consider is your subwoofer box

It makes a world of difference i had heard the 12 comp vrs in a ebay cheep ported box and the difference between that and a high quailty box is noght and day. If you upgrade your box itll make you think "are theese the same subs? Wowthere so much clearer and louder". It is definafly worth it


I hope i shed some light on this

Hmmmm. What speakers are the extra ones you have? Are you door speakers powered? Are you one the stock battery? Do you have anoter trunk battery. I saw it was a 2500 watt amp. No stock alternator or stock battery can actally power that. Theres a lot more power you can get if thoose are havnt been added/ changed

Oh one more thing to add. Habe you dyno matted or equivelent in the trunk? By the way my friend has a cobalt that has really bad boss audio subs and you can hear it from soooooo far away. But it doesnt hit nearly as hard as mine. The more you heard it from the outside the worse it sounds inside

And if he's having trouble pushing 850 then he should do a load test when it's on my buddy has a blazer cheap AAA battery that pushed almost 3000 watts no cap, now that kills his battery if he leaves it on all night

Listen man. Im tryna to help but i think uou need to do a lot more reasearch. I can 200% garentee its the quailty of everything but your headunit. Please take this right way. But please 2500 watts is not always 2500 watts. I need to power my door speakers with a 300 watt rockfordfoagate 300 amp. (Rated at 330. I have the certification) for any amp over 345 watts on my kicker comp vrs and there too loud and need power. Please. Just spend the money and deal with not everything saying 2500 watts amd you will honestly be much happier. Plus i can tell you wex were NOT made for systems. Please try and take that advice as harsh as it was

Oh I know the subs are **** the amp is decent I don't buy cheap **** by any means that's what was in the car it does fine for now, but I know it's not a true 2500 but I know that's what the amp says, I spend good money on my audio equipment, fosgate, Polk and kenwood memphis audio are among the top of the line products for audio pioneer not so much those subs will be gone soon. I've done a lot of searching and research with my audio equipment what I have is decent for now if I want rediculous I could have it but I don't not at the moment. What I have is loud enough and does the job but I will be adding more that for sure.

The kenwood kdc 995 is dope. Its 55rms x4 so it does power the speakers better. Single va double din is all preference
