Default 2017 Impreza Stereo/head units.

I did a bunch of research on who makes the stock head units for my Legacy but can't find out who makes the stock system for the SPORT model 2017 Impreza. It was strange when I did research on the Legacy I found that the stock system was actually made by H/K but they didn't badge it. Then when you paid for the "upgraded" system they put a bunch of H/K badges all around. When I bought my second Forester I found out that Panasonic made the head unit for it.

Has anyone figured out who makes the 8 inch screen stock system for the 2017 Impreza Sport?

I can't find anything on the net yet.

edit. I was looking at all of the stock numbers and they ALL say "HARMAN" on them.

Could be they are all made by Harman kardon?

Yea, that is what it looks like to me as well. Maybe they upgrade the speakers when people pay extra for the H/K upgrade?

I remember my first Impreza I bought new like 20 years ago. I took the door panels off to see the speakers and saw that they were plastic and cardboard so I replaced them. Made a huge difference.

Does anyone else have issues with head units? If had a couple times unit failed on me while driving. No audio whatsoever on top right corner had a speaker icon with a x next to it , sure it meant mute but couldn't get volume back on, not even radio was playing i had to factory reset. I have the base 6" starlink system

Here is this proof if anyone needs it, every single head unit is made by H&K.
