  1. Radio volume delayed when car starts

    Subaru BRZ Problems, Recalls and Troubleshooting
    I just bought a 2018 BRZ last Friday. Right now I'm having issues with the radio. When I start the car, the volume won't come on with the radio on. After 10-30 secs (it varies each startup), the volume starts to sound over the speakers. The dealership already tried to do an update on the system...
  2. HU upgrade sound quality FM and SAT reception? Pioneer AVIC 8100NEX?

    Subaru BRZ Audio and Navigation
    I have just completed major upgrades of the system, and am considering upgrading the HU to a Pioneer AVIC 8100nex, and am wondering about sound quality improvements, in analog FM (or HD if reception is more reliable), and SAT. I have the sub from a OEM-audio (I was very unhappy with the...
  3. BRZ 2014 Fujitsu head unit SD card

    Subaru BRZ Audio and Navigation
    Is there anyone willing to share an image file of an SD card PN 86283CA630 with me? This is for a Fujitsu HU FA632US from a 2014 BRZ. Long story short.... I lost the SD card of my car and now the HU unit won't load up without it (the battery was disconnected). I want to try using a copied card...
  4. 2015 Black BRZ Sport tech

    New Member Introductions
    17 years old, I live in toronto, Ontario. Purchased a new 2015 brz sport tech in black. Still need to wait for early September for the car to be delivered but in the meantime I was curious as to which exhaust system is the best bang for buck because I only have $800 to spend on it.

    2014 Blue Limited BRZ, bought one week ago. Love it. I've already benefited from this forum by setting the equalizer based on recommendations here. Thanks, it sounds much better now! Now, if I can just figure out the rest of the nav/audio system. :confused:
  6. Subaru BRZ Audio Speakers

    Subaru BRZ Audio and Navigation
    Here's what I gather for our current stock speakers...they're decent. But I want to upgrade them mostly b/c I have a few speakers in the garage that I'd love to put to use. I haven't pulled open the speaker grills on the dash to take measurements b/c I don't plan on replacing those. But other...
  7. Speaker Rattle

    Subaru BRZ Audio and Navigation
    Bought my BRZ on 01/12/2013 and it has 6500 miles on it. Already a speaker rattle. I have never abused the audio system, mostly listen to smooth jazz at a listenable level and not over-booming. My questions is, should I ask the dealer to replace the speaker? I have played with the equalizer...
  8. Custom Subwoofer Enclosure

    Subaru BRZ Audio and Navigation
    I got my BRZ at the end of Febuary, and as good as the stock audio system is, it doesn't come close to the custom setup I had in my last car. I'm not looking for anything rediculous and I'm not looking at breaking any car audio records either, but I would like to compete with some of the full...

    Hi everyone! Just signed my contract for a BRZ today and I'm really excited about it. I'm an American living in Germany, just a few miles from Austria. I think it will be a blast driving a BRZ on our mountain roads. I hate to give up my Mini Clubman S -- see him at Less is more | Mini...
  10. New BRZ

    New Member Introductions
    Good day everybody. I just bought my wife a new BRZ for her birthday. Had a big surprise party for her, my sons and I were the only ones that knew she was getting it. I quite surprised myself that I was able to pull it off. I have a question that I haven't been able to find anywhere on the web...
  11. USB doesn't have all music

    Subaru BRZ Problems, Recalls and Troubleshooting
    I have to first say this is the worst radio/phone/aux/navi I have ever seen in a car. My bluetooth goes through a total phonebook reboot each time I turn the car on. My iPod tries to pair itself with the bluetooth as a phone. I have been on the phone with Subaru techs and they told me they think...
  12. New WR Blue owner!

    New Member Introductions
    My wait is finally over i picked up my WR Blue BRZ on Saturday and I have been driving it practically the entire time. I have spent a lot of time on this forum reading over the past few months as well as massive amounts of research (including reading the whole owners manual before buying it). I...
  13. What's wrong with the BRZ?

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    I've had mine for just two days the only thing I can find that isn't just about perfect is the inane touch screen nav/audio system. Frankly I would pay extra to delete it! The car is perfect to drive and I am still having to observe the break in 4,000 rpm "redline" specified in the Owners...
  14. Anyone with OEM Audio system have preferred EQ settings

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    Anyone with OEM Audio system 400 have preferred EQ settings I installed the system upgrade today and am thoroughly pleased with the overall improvement. Have set the EQ back to flat for starters, but was wondering if anyone else who has put the system in may have spent some time tweaking and...
  15. Tweeters that will drop in?

    Subaru BRZ Audio and Navigation
    Hi folks, I'm trying to find a drop in tweeter replacement. I know they are 1", but I also know not all will fit. If you know of specific models I'd appreciate seeing them. I'm looking for one that is smoother and far less... Tizzy than the one we get stock. I've already put image dynamic...
  16. Finally getting a test drive today!

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    I called my dealer and talked to my salesman today. I ordered back in April, and my car is expected in February/March. He mentioned the dealer's owner has a demo car for 30 days that he's been driving around. I asked if I can come test drive it today and they said yes! I can't wait since...
  17. IPOD audio is staticy sometimes

    Subaru BRZ Problems, Recalls and Troubleshooting
    Ok so I have about 6000mi on the car and I have had this problem about 10 times. When I start my car and the audio from the IPOD (hooked via the USB) starts, it sounds fine. Then when I change the song I get static on the audio coming out. The only way I get the static to go away is if I shut...
  18. BRZ Audio System and iPod Connectivity

    Subaru BRZ Audio and Navigation
    I am currently switching back and forth between an iPod and a USB drive. I created a 15gb playlist from iTunes and mad sure all files were converted to mp3 format. Every time I start the car, the audio system will resume the last selection I was playing and then goes back to the same beginning...
  19. Tail Light Condensation????

    Subaru BRZ Problems, Recalls and Troubleshooting
    First post. Took my Premium back yesterday due to the dealer screwing up the paint job during detailing (seriously, the wax dried and left spots, and they scratched it in the process). They fixed it up good, but I noticed a few weeks ago when I washed it that there was condesation on one of...
  20. An audio lesson from urfather

    Subaru BRZ Audio and Navigation
    Ladies and Gents, Above is the EQ screen for the BRZ or FRZ as we all know. From left (100Hz) or bass frequencies to right (12.5KHz) treble frequencies. The average person can hear from 20Hz to 20 KHz meaning that our frequency on our car can go relatively high and relatively low, but cannot...
