    • Hi @RaKid,   Do you have the face-lift SG? I have an SG and the factory antennae are in the rear glass between the C and D pillars. They each have their own attenuators located right below them in the trim. Usually, yes. They have the same wheelbase and if you download the original brochure of the SG from Japan, they market it as a GG/GD Impreza that has just been lifted. Those who lift their GG/GD Imprezas usually just buy the SG Forester's suspension components like shocks, trailing arms, half-shafts, etc. to keep the alignment as spot-on as possible. I can imagine doing the reverse for an SG if you are thinking of lowering it. I have seen tourers using the GC/GF brakes on their SGs without modifications/adapters. Cheers.    
    • Hi everyone,   Does anyone have insights on the maintenance and reliability of aftermarket alloy radiators? I am thinking whether or not they will give any sort of advantage when one is touring remotely, where reliability of the cooling system is a must.   Since modern cars have plastic radiator tank tops and, of course, they will degrade over time. Has anyone installed an aftermarket radiator, particularly ones that are sold her locally, and has had a good run with them so far?   My default will always be genuine parts all the time but it would be nice to get some opinions and experiences on this topic. Cheers.
    • On a roll this weekend... so after getting the amp and head unit in the car last night, i went out for a drive with my young feller... and well... lets just say the Wiggles sounded like worse than usual. Heres the reason... So, as with my previous posts... out with the old. and in with the new,       They're not permanent, so i wasn't too worried about the cables. My plan is to get some sound deadening, and better front speakers, then these will becomes rear speakers.    
    • Should be able to find some ok condition ones from a wreck if wanting to get things working on the cheap but they all fail at some point.   Main problem is they have an 8ohm impedance which is rather rare. Two bridged together gives 4ohms which others have done in the past but will somewhat take away from the full sound of the McIntosh and may sound crap as you won't have much adjustability to tweak the new speakers to the rest of the system.    Replacing the amp with a high level input one is the next best plan as it then lets you replace all the speakers with standard component/coaxial’s and gives you the ability to tune for the balance you desire.
    • Morning,   Just wondering what's available in the way of speaker replacement for 04 Legacy with McIntosh upgrade? Been around a few shops with no help and can't find much online.   6.5 inch sub, 3 inch speaker and 2 tweeters per door, seems to be pretty difficult to even find a set that fits in. Looking for something a half decent set that will run off the factory amp.   Have found online video of how to do everything but only found 2 sets in these sizes of brands I've never heard of. Figured someone here may have some recommendations.   Cher
