    Is one side a better choice than the other for routing cables? Driver's side seems like a good choice because the battery is on that side, but I'm wondering if one side of the floor channel is a better choice than the other (e.g., more space). Anyone familiar with these vehicles have an...

    I'm not a mechanic or electrician but have common sense. Once I realized my audio system's light was the only thing dimming when I tried to start my 2011 Kia Soul. So I unplugged the fuse and now it's starts great, runs better and the lights seems brighter but NO RADIO././ Any suggestions...

    My car is a Soul+ with Infinity and with Navigation. I emailed Metra today to ask them about making a Harness. My aim is to make installing aftermarket amps with high level (or with using LOC's) a lot easier. This would be for keeping the stock head unit, but adding new speakers/amps. Here...

    I have a 2013 + Soul that I just replaced the head unit and the 2 front door speakers in. I'm not very pleased with the sound thus far. I've messed around with the EQ settings on the stereo but I can't find a good balance. The bass is always too much and drowns everything else out and when I...

    Alright guys, so I plan to replace every speaker in my car with new speakers soon, but I'm stuck on replacing the factory amp. I don't really just want to bypass it, but more upgrade it, I've found a 70-7305 harness, which would connect to the factory wiring harness. My thoughts are getting an...
