  4. Subwoofer

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    Getting ready to order a new sub for the rear as I’m pretty confident the existing one is blown to hell I can hear it rattling badly. Upon searching I’ve seen you can cut the rear grill out which is okay but I’m questioning the size of the woofer. Factory is a 6 inch. Will 6.5 fit? I’ve...

    Hello, I see the spot... how can it be done? I assume that I have to get that entire side panel out of the trunk to remove the insert that is there?
  6. Subwoofer Replacement Options?

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    My 2011 Kia Soul ! Subwoofer blew within the last week. It was in for an oil change yesterday and had them take a look at it just to make sure and they came back and verified that it was blown. They priced me out a replacement and labor and it was just under $300. I think that’s way overpriced...

  10. Subwoofer Install

    ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    So I wanted more subwoofer output since my 2001 VW Jetta had a 300 watt 12" subwoofer in it and I just wasn't satisfied with the stock sub in the Soul. I wanted a small box perhaps that would fit where the cargo tray was. I was originally thinking a single 12" subwoofer, but eventually I went...
  11. second subwoofer ?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    can one add a second subwoofer to the driver side of this car? i take note the stock amp has a Left and Right output for subs, a + and a - for a left and a right sub woofer output so this leads me to believe such an option or maybe a right side box exists i could upgrade my car? 2 8's would be...

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    IS there wiring in the car where the factory sub would go on the upgraded system? I want to know the best way to put in an aftermarket sub/amp. I've read a few threads about it but nothing talking about whether or not the factory wiring is in there .

    Does anyone have any experience adding in a subwoofer to their stock system? I like the overall general sound of the speakers, but find the bass somewhat...lacking.
