Don't count the OEM System 500 out.
It changed our WRX completely. Check it out.

I have a base 2018 STI. I did not go for the limited because I thought the nav was crap and would probably end up upgrading the head unit down the road. Also, didn't care for the moonroof and the reduction in head room. But, the speakers suck so bad... I upgraded the tweeters and door speakers with the Kicker speakers plug and play. Ordered them from subaru parts and did it myself. I'd say it is a definite upgrade from the stock speakers. Much clearer. If you even just replace the tweeters first you notice a difference. Still severely lacking bass so i ended up putting in a kicker hideaway sub under my seat which ultimately made the whole thing tolerable.

I was coming from an premium plus s4 with bang olufsen system and i couldn't tolerate how bad the stock base speaker system was, so that was the first thing I did...

Ultimately the HU is underpowered. Changing that or having an amp would make it much better, even with the stock speakers.
