Well.. I might be coming back for good. Thank you!!! Lol, I think I'm going to buy a dealer stock one. I need to go test drive one first to see how I like it.Still hanging around in the shadows I see... lol. Welcome back, kinda.
I think so few have gotten theirs that probably none has done so. I was hoping to do the same but the dealer screwed up my order. With that said, I'm going to take a wild guess that it will be pretty similar to the latest Ford Escape speakers.
The locations and grille sizing are pretty similar except obviously the B&O setup will be different.
With that said, one of the forum members tried to take some speaker measurements for me.
Everything depends on how much $$$$ you want to spend and how much more "awesome" you want it to sound.Yeah, that's what I figured, and that's basically what I've been using as a proxy when searching Crutchfield for compatible speakers. I'm not getting the Badlands package, so it wont be getting the Bang & Olufson speakers. And honestly, I test drove a Badlands that had it, and I wasn't impressed. They sounded really muddy and just not that clear. Plus the center dash speakers creates a weird soundstage. I'm coming from a 2018 Impreza that had some aftermarket Rockford Fosgate speakers that only cost like $90 and they sound WAY better than the B&O system. Too bad they wont fit (they're 6x9") because I loved those speakers. They were coaxial, so this time I'm likely going to upgrade to the component Rockfords. Just don't know if I'll add an amplifier (I've heard their Punch amplifier is really good), and if I do add an amp if I'll come across any weird compatibility issues like losing steering wheel volume control or something similar.
Its located on the passenger side in the trunk. Good to know where the amp was on your Subaru. I'm going to look under there soon and see what I'm working withIs 18808G the sub woofer? Where is is located (hard to tell from diagram). One thing I liked about my old Forester is that Subaru always made it super easy to do audio upgrades and other mods. The Subaru amp was located under the front passenger seat.

My goal was to:
1) Use FORScan to flatten out stock EQ.
2) Get or build an adapter to pull the clean signals out before the stock amp....
3) Get a DSP for tuning... that goes to aftermarket amps.. to power aftermarket speakers
At least that was my plan...
So this is pretty clear to me, the B&O system ADDS the center channel in the dash (much smaller than the unnecessary size of that grille opening up there), the tweeters in the rear doors (different from those in the corners of the dash), and the sub (shown as absent in that location in the 6-speaker system). The sub must fire into the cavity below the cargo floor? I have to say, I could not locate it by ear on my quick test drive -- though I didn't turn it up much with 2 dealer folks in the vehicle with me. So glad to have found this, thanks for posting!Soo I'm now very curious to see what's under the panels. I might poke around this weekend and see what we're working with. I have a badlands without the audio upgrade. So it seems there is a subwoofer area but did not come with a subwoofer. I really want to take a look and see if there is wiring already in place. I also want to see what wattages and resistance the stock speakers come in so I can just do an easy swap and get an aftermarket speaker that doesn't make me upgrade the amp if it's hard to get to. Where is the amp located usually in cars/is it easy. I have so many questions now
