Maestro AR or DSR1 for a 2018 WRX Sti with HK

Post by ron888 »

Hi All,

I am planning a Amp and speakers replacement on a (Australian) 2018 WRX Sti with Harmon Kardon system

I don't know which one I need, as the website is confusing (specially Clutchfield.com says i need a DSR1)

AR or DSR1? Which firmware and harness?

I need to retain all features of the Subaru Starlink (with NAV)

Do you have an Australian Dealer?

Thank you in Advance.
Ronald

Because we are a North American Company, we only distribute and support vehicles in North America. If you choose to proceed, do so at your own risk, as we don't have access to Australian vehicles or product to test if something doesn't work right.

This vehicle is covered by the aTO3 harness and either the DSR1 or AR; it just depends on which amp you plan to use. The DSR1 works with any amplifier, and the AR works with select Audison and Kenwood amplifiers. See the link below for compatible amplifiers.

Thank you Dara for the reply,

Would any be able to supply the DS1 and the aTO3 to Australia?

Also what firmware so i need on the DS1? Use it in Standalone mode?

TIA

You would use our firmware that accompanies the TO3 harness.

We do not deal directly, so you would need to source the product from a dealer or distributor.
