Subaru Coupes/Sedans/Wagons 1985-1996 Repair Guide



The radio is mounted in the center portion of the dashboard, with speakers mounted in various locations through out the vehicle. Most models contain 2, 4 or 6 speakers, 2 or 4 mounted in the front of the vehicle (usually in the door panels or in the lower portion of the dash board) and 2 mounted in the rear of the vehicle. The SVX is equipped with 6 speakers, 2 tweeters mounted in the top of the dash board, 2 full range speakers mounted in the front doors and 2 larger speakers mounted in the rear shelf. The Legacy, Impreza and SVX can also be equipped with a compact disc player mounted below the radio.

Never operate the radio without a speaker. Damage to the output transistors will result. If the speaker must be replaced, use a speaker of correct impedance (ohms) or the output transistors will require replacement in short order. Never operate the radio with the speaker leads shorted together.
