Default Oem underseat sub '05 Wrx

Hey gusy, I was really looking forward to getting the oem option under seat subwoofer/amp for my 2005 Impreza Wrx premium sedan, annnnndddddd, the 05 seems to be the only one I cannot find.


Can anyone help me in the direction of the correct subwoofer for my car?

Can any of the 02-04 or 06-07 optional subwoofers fit my 05?

Really bummed to find out my 05 is the oddball and very hard to find the sub for.

I recently installed a Kicker Hideaway 8" sub under my passenger seat. It fit perfectly without any issues. I know you asked about OEM but figured I'd just throw that out there. My quick searches also yielded no OEM for the 05 WRX.

Is that sub hooked up to the factory head unit? Amp built in to the sub enclosure?

I was really wanting to get the oem Subaru sub, but for some reason the 2005 Wrx is the oddball....

Anyone know if the 2005 is actually different from all others?

I really, really, really want to add the oem underseat subwoofer to my 2005 Wrx sedan w premium pkg 6 disc, but having a really hard time figuring out which one will work.

Theres got to be an auidophile on here that can help me.

All my searches end up with nothing. I can find the subwoofer for pretty much all 2002-04 and 06/07, and pretty much all 2005 impreza EXCEPT for the Wrx.

Can anyone help me? Also slightly interested in non Oem underseat subwoofers.

Go ahead and purchase any OEM under seat sub from an 02-07 WRX. AFAIK all the plugs are the same. The OEM sub harness plugs into the main harness, then your aftermarket/stock radio harness plugs into the sub harness.

When I bought my 06 wagon, I took the OEM sub from my 99RS (under driver's seat) and it works flawlessly.

Then I bought an OEM sub from an 02 WRX and put it in my 99RS (under passenger's seat).

Anyone else know if they are all universal? Ive always been told they are year/model specific.

Honestly I think you'd be better off going aftermarket for an underseat subwoofer....I haven't heard many good things about the OEM one.

Im not toooo big on audio, and dont really care to lose my "fancy" 6 disc, nor have a loud sub and amp. Though I think the oem underseat sub is pretty much exactly what I want.

One some oem parts sites they seem to list all years and models, but state not for 05 Wrx. https://www.subarugenuineparts.com/i...7e16428105784e
