With help from Forum members phenryiv1 and SVXdc I have just wrapped up installing a Clarion CX501 into my 2013 Impreza Premium 5-door. SVXdc's steering wheel control unit works like magic and I'm thrilled with the installation...once I read the Clarion manual and stopped the HU from changing colors on me..Maybe the CX stands for "Chameleon Extreme"?
I have Infinity 6032 speakers and phenryvi1's spacers staged to go as soon as the weather breaks here in Maryland (no garage ).
I fitted my previous Suby (2006 Forester X) with a Kenwood KSC-SW1 under-seat subwoofer and it worked well. Alas, it's too big to fit under the seat of the new Impreza. I'm ready to purchase an equivalent unit and wonder if anyone has any first person experience with fitting one to the 2012/2013 Impreza.
Online research suggests the the following models should fit:
Sound Ordinance B-8PD
Kenwood KSC SW10
Boss Bass 800.
Has anyone here put one of these or a similar model under the seat of a 2012/2013 Impreza hatchback non-turbo?
