  1. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    Wondering if anyone has installed a 10 inch tablet style stereo in their Gen 2 Souls? I know the style isn't for everyone, I used to dislike them but they are really growing on me know and I like the idea of the large screen. Just wasn't sure if anyone has done this and run into any major...
  2. Soul Accessories (Gen 3)
    Hey all! Not sure if this should go in the accessories forum but I'll take a chance. I have a 2020 with what I think is the lower stereo. I was thinking of putting a sub in the car but I see that the front dash has a speaker like thing in the middle above the radio. I beleive that this is...

    According to Crutchfield the rear door speakers can be swapped out for these. JL Audio C5-650cw-RP C5 Series 6-3/4" component woofer at Crutchfield Pretty expensive but it seems clean and easy. Anyone tried this?

    Hey all So, bought a used 2014 Soul EX in green. It has the base unit for stereo (not the NAV version) and I have some gripes about it. If I'm playing audio through bluetooth, and I turn the car off, then back on -- instead of staying on bluetooth and trying to reconnect, it defaults to...
  5. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    In my 2014 Soul Plus, I have just the base Stereo system and I am looking into upgrading. I would really like to upgrade to the OEM Touch Screen system that the higher end Souls have, but I am not sure if this is even possible. I guess my question is can I actually do this and will it work...
  6. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    Hello everyone, I've got a 2016, base model, manual Soul. I do my best to not let the engine idle for extended periods but I also frequently listen to music through the Bluetooth interface. Obviously, resetting the input after restarting the engine is an annoyance and I've been trying to...
  7. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    It looks like there are two double-DIN dash kit options on the market for the Gen 2 Soul, from Metra and Scosche, and possibly a third that several companies whitelabel. The few pictures I've seen of an installed Metra kit on the Soul look, to be honest, pretty bad, with visible gaps from the...

    Has anybody attempted to take a stereo from a higher model soul and out it into a lower model? I have a 2016 SX Sport (I'm in Canada) and the only thing I dislike is it has the small 4inch stereo screen. I have found someone selling a large touchscreen from a 2016. It is the one with navigation...

    My Stereo keeps switching from radio to USB music on its own I'll put it back on the radio and before one song it switches back to the USB music. It just started doing this. We've had very cold temps this last week, not sure if that is afecting it. Any ideas?
  13. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    Hi y'all, I am trying to find out what audio system my 2015 Kia Soul Plus came with. What speakers, as well. Is there an easy way to find out? The system in my car has USB and an aux port, no cd/DVD drive. I'd like to upgrade to a unit with GPS and a cd player with Sirius xm. Any...

    I'm starting a complete new audio install on my 2017 Soul+. It looks like the wiring on the stereo is different this year. Everywhere I look it shows 2017 the same as the last few years but that is not the case. Has anyone seen this or have an idea of where to get the correct harness or wiring...

    Would like to know the following: * Will the OEM backup camera work with aftermarket units, specifically with the Pioneer AVH series (I am installing a Pioneer AVH-X3800BHS) * What speakers are suitable replacements for a 2012 - this didn't have the Infinity stereo and I'm thinking I need to...

    Hello! I just purchased a Latte Brown 2015 + today after three weeks of hunting/shopping. Pretty happy so far driving it to/from work. I'm already getting some necessities for it (all-weather mats, window visor, bug deflector, rear bumper protector, steering-wheel cover, and blind-spot mirror)...

    Hello again! So, I'm planning to do a stereo overhaul and was having problems finding the answers to a few questions...There might be an all encompassing thread out there already that gives us all the harnesses required but it doesn't look to be sticky'd and if there isn't one maybe this could...
  19. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    So I just purchased my Kia Soul used. For some reason I cannot pair my iPhone to it. I have tried 7 different phone models. None of which can even see the "KIA MOTORS" appear when the stereo is in pairing mode. I've reset the radio, upgraded the firmware, etc. Nothing. I'm thinking about just...

    **Creating this one since Iphone is not involved, but may be similar to another thread. ** So this has happened twice. I have a cheap phone that attaches via Bluetooth - (not a smartphone) - and use USB drive for music. Twice a series of LOUD popping noises started happening while listening...
