    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...

  9. Questions regarding the Official Subaru audio upgrades.

    Subaru BRZ Audio and Navigation
    My upgrade the audio in my previous car (POS Chevy Cobalt). I did it myself and broke several clips and plastic parts, but man, it sounded awesome. I just got a BRZ a week ago and love it. I don't want to DIY the audio because I'm not sure I can do it properly. I saw the Subaru dealership...

  14. Picky about reading texts

    Subaru BRZ Audio and Navigation
    Hey guys, So I had no idea my BRZ could notify me of incoming texts until my friend connected his phone (to play music) and a notification that he got a text and if you'd like to have it read it popped up. It's never done this for my phone and I've gone through all the settings I could find. My...

    Hi. This is a very involved question, so please bear with me... I have a new 2013 BRZ Limited. I am hearing impaired and have only one working ear - and it is only about 40% of normal (long, sad story.) It serves me well enough with the use of a hearing aid, though it's like listening to the...
  17. Dynaudio Speakers Anyone?

    Subaru BRZ Audio and Navigation
    Has anyone done a 3-way setup with Dyns? I was thinking about putting in the Escotec System 362 - it's got 8" woofers for the door, 1.1" soft dome tweeters and a 3" mid-bass driver. I think both the tweets and mids will fit in the dash. Also thinking about doing the JL Stealth Box in the...

    Hi, Picking up our new BRZ on Saturday. Based on what I've read, the head unit is a prime target for an early upgrade. I've done a few searches but have not found any discussion of the Pioneer AVIC NEX series. Has anyone installed one of these in a BRZ? Is it possible to connect the...
