2006 STI double dinn unit

Postby ABSTI » Fri Jun 27, 2014 4:02 pm

Hi all,

I'm currently looking at replacing the standing double DIN 2006 STI cd/stereo with a AVH-X3600DAB, I'm yet to purchase the unit. Is there anything I need to be mindful of when it comes to DIN/JIN sizes? I'm assuming that I'll need some sort of Subaru mount to fit?

Any opinions on the below?

I recently replaced the standard 2 DIN head unit in my 2006 STi with this Kenwood 2 DIN unit - http://www.kenwood.com/au/car/receiver/dpx-u5130bt/

Fits perfectly with no extra mount required and easy to DIY.

Pretty sure 2 DIN is a standard size so should be the same across different brands.

It will fit perfectly
One tip, make sure you use the correct size phillips head screwdriver to remove the factory brackets.
Once the seal is cracked they come out easy, easy to destroy the screw though.

Grab the Aerpro audio harness's from Autobarn & it will be installed in no time ;)

Not that it matters that much. But my aerpro patch harness did require modifying as front and rear speakers were arse about.
I have a wiring diagram somewhere if it helps.
