Subaru Partners With KICKER for OE Audio Upgrades

There is no need to stress the importance that some give to having a performance audio system in their car. This is why the North American division of Subaru announced today it has signed a partnership with KICKER Performance Audio, in order to offer its customers to chance to benefit from original equipment (OE) upgrades for specific models.

The high-performance Subaru audio upgrades made by KICKER are compatible with all 2008-2011 Impreza sedans, Impreza WRX sedans, 2011 WRX STI sedans, and all 2008-2011 Impreza, Impreza WRX and WRX STI 5-door vehicles with navigation or non-navigation audio systems.

“KICKER has been providing the industry with quality after-market audio accessories for many years,"
said Jay
Gelletly, Subaru Accessories Marketing Manager. "We are pleased to offer another high quality upgrade for our vehicles that our enthusiasts will enjoy."

The audio system includes a 10-inch powered subwoofer in a molded enclosure made to fit in the trunk or cargo area of the specific model, and reportedly leaving plenty of trunk cargo space available.

The subwoofer is powered by an integrated 100-watt, high-efficiency digital amplifier that is tuned to specifically match the size of  the enclosure, “resulting in deep, powerful bass from a small space, enhancing overall performance and accuracy system-wide,” as Subaru emphasizes. The amplifier connects into the existing Subaru audio system using a true plug-and-play wire harness.

According to the Japanese auto brand, the audio upgrade kits are now available through Subaru dealerships. The upgrade kit may either installed at the factory port processing facility, or at the dealership prior to delivery.
