Default 2015 Subaru WRX

This is a little early but I figured I'd get the build log up and running to atleast get some ideas and advice from people. I requested a few days off in the middle of september so that I can work on the vehicle and hopefully get it done in about 4 days.

The stock system in the car is pretty terrible, so the current system that I've purchased will be temporary for atleast a few months just for some decent SQL (I like my bass as well) and will then be replaced.
Here's a list of the stereo equipment getting installed, the performance mods I'll be adding over the next few months, and my plans for the future build once funds are available:

First system being installed:

Vehicle: 2015 Subaru WRX Premium
Headunit: Pioneer 80PRS
Mids: Dayton Ref 7" Paper Cone in doors.
Tweeters: Dayton Ref Silk Dome or LPG 26NA if the Daytons don't fit in dash.
Mids Amp: JL Audio XD800/8 bridged to mids and tweets
Subs: (2) Obsidian Audio 10's
Sub Amp: US Amps MD3D (purchasing next week).
Sound Deadening: Stinger and Fat Mat
Wiring: Mostly Knukonceptz wire and RCA's (will be tech flex'd).
Battery:" Will be upgraded later down the line.

Performance Mods (none purchased yet):
Mishimoto Intake
Perrin Cat-Back Exhaust System
Cobb Accessport
18" Wheels (way down the line)

Accessories:
Carbon Fiber License Frames (purchased)
HID lights (low beam, high beam, and fogs)
Interior LED light kit
Tinted Windows (hopefully in the next two weeks or so).

Future Audio upgrades:
Processor: Audison Bit Ten
Headunit: Pioneer 4000NEX
Subs: (2) 12's mounted IB
Mids: Morel for use as midbass drivers.
Midrange/Tweets: 4" Morel Integra XO4's (pointsource in the dash)

So that's pretty much the plan and hopefully I have everything, including the upgraded system done by the beginning of next year. The 4's in the dash and IB setup will most likely be done by one of the stud installers here in California.

I don't have many tools so I purchased a few things to get me through the build. I'm not very good with fabrication so I'll be having a friend build me a box for the 10's. A little long winded but hopefully you get the picture. lol

Here's a few pics and I'll get some more of the interior and engine bay tomorrow.

Nice.

I still have the dash kit and harness and SWC from my 2012 STi. I doubt any of it fits, but you can have the shit if it does. I have some extra 'A' pillars too.

Let me look into it and I might hit you up. The stereo's pretty much haven't changed over the last few years so it probably fits. Damn I miss that 99PRS! Traded it in with a car I had...I'm an idiot....

Here's a few pics of what the interior looks like and where the stock speaker locations are.






A lot of room in the spare tire area.

Thanks man. I was thinking about jt in LA or SIS up north for when it's ready but I don't know. Maybe Ryan has an idea for an IB setup when he see's the car. lol

Will do bro. Probably in about 2 or 3 weeks. I plan on starting the build mid september, I asked for 2 days off on top of my normal 2 days off. Hopefully 4 days will be enough. I wouldn't mind a hand. Some pizza and unlimited beer sound good?

Yeah hopefully it turns out well. Really trying to plan this out right so I don't get mad and break things.

Just did 2 OA v3 12's in an 04 wrx, subs and port forward trunk wall on a saz 2500. Its nasty... I think we ended up at 4 cubes net within 8" aero at 27hz tuning. I like it a lot. Good choice with the sub stage!
