Default How To: Improve Stock Subaru WRX/STI Stereo Radio Clarion CZ624u1

Hi everyone, if you're like me, you probably realize your stock radio kinda sucks (2011 Subaru WRX). Finally I got tired of it and did some research, found some great info on how to make it better. So I made a quick video for you guys.

From my knowledge all Stock radios - Clarion CZ624u1

Hey that's pretty cool! I'll have to see if the OBS is like that too, though I doubt it is!

This will work on the 09 base stereo, but the radio needs to be turned off to do it, in the video the radio was on. I did notice an improvement using the through mode (loud was already turned on for me). It mostly added more bass, nothing to write home about but a step in the right direction. Thanks for the tip!

I know this is old - but THANKS! I think that was just enough for me to keep it stock.

Selected: Hatch, Loud ON (and CS Auto ON through Menu) and it is loud enough for me. I don't think I'll ever need to set it to 40 anymore. 32 is probably the highest I'll go (using CDs anyway).

I removed it and cleaned off the rubberized coating that was on the face plate. It was getting sticky and made my fingers black if I rubbed it. Now it is glossy (and clean) looking. Used Alcohol and paper towels - which didn't hurt the LCD screen.
