    Yep! The second one in a row. I was tempted by the Niro but once I saw the improvements made in the past 5 years I knew I wouldn't regret staying with a Soul. The ride is much smoother. The seats are more supportive. Most important...better crash ratings and more airbags. I purchased...
  2. New Member Introductions
    Greetings everybody! I purchased my 2012 Soul in 2014 with 33,000mi. I was looking for something with a lot of interior space (moving tools/ materials/ moving to and from school), decent engine displacement, and an automatic with the option for gear selection. The Soul had everything I was...

    I've been driving a little Chevy Cobalt coupe for the past 10 years and finally upgraded to a 2016 Kia Soul+ with 44k miles on it. I can't believe all the room I have now! I'm always doing renovations to my house and now I don't have to cram lumber into a tiny car anymore. I got a killer deal...
  4. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Is there one amp that just pushes all the speakers? Cause adjusting the bass seems like it does so across all speakers. I would have thought it would have been better to have seperate control of the bass which would just go to the sub. I mean I don't I like the idea of blowing door speakers...
  5. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    Alright guys, I need some help with a mod. I'm trying to replace my OEM subwoofer with a Kicker CompS 8" sub. I recently sold my L7 (which sadly, i regret, but hey..suspension parts soon!) and i plugged back in my OEM sub to find out that it was blown out. (not sure how, but hey! what do ya do)...

    I've looked at a lot of photo of Plus and Exclaim '11 cars and the radio looks the same in each case. How does one identify the standard radio from the upgraded one? There is no UVO in the 2010-11 models correct? So is the upgrade just extra speakers or also a bigger amp? Thanks.

    Hi, I own a 2011 Kia soul plus and would like to install OEM subwoofer and amp instead of using my aftermarket gear from my other car.I would like to keep my soul stock . My question is where do I buy the parts for this and does anyone have any to sell. Also would the wiring for it already be in...

    Hello, I just attempted to make a swap on my 2010 Kia Souls stock stereo with the upgraded sound system with a brand new pioneer avh-p3400bh. Everything seemed to be ok, functions on screen, buttons, followed by the beep after pressing every command including the volume, but there is no sound...
  10. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    My 2012 Soul had the OEM 205/55/R16 tires. I just upgraded to Bridgestone Ecopia 422 tires that are 225/60/R16. This has really improved the handling, stance, and road comfort by A LOT! It gives my Soul a more cross-over look to. The tires a a fair about wider and taller. They effect the speedo...

    I tried to search this topic but . . . I have the upgraded stock stereo system that came from the dealership.....eight speaker system/amp. I think someone said it was a 315 watt system.....Does anyone know who makes these stereo speakers and amplifier? I have an Infinity system that came with...
  12. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    The upgraded Infinity sound system with 7 speakers in the 2012 Kia Soul is okay for the additional $800.00. However, it is not a high fidelity system and will disappoint an audiophile. The high end is lacking fidelity and the bass is real muddy. And there is little to no real kick in the...

    Here are a few pics of what I did over the week. The Fader Rocker Panel Stripes that I had on there, just weren't blending in right, with the rest of my graphics. So, I ordered a SOUL Rocker Panel Strobe Kit, and installed that a few days ago. I didn't want to be redundant and have too many...

    I have a Soul + with the "300 watt" (LOL) stereo with the 7 speakers. Does anyone know if the factory stereo has RCA inputs in the rear to add an aftermarket amp? There stereo, while the upgraded, sounds like junk but I love the head unit, bluetooth and controls. Thanks in advance for your...

    I have a new (2011) Soul and I am pretty pleased all around. I am not crazy about the sound system. I like the look of the stock head unit but the low end sounds overboosted or something. Anyway, I had a JL Audio sub installed and it is wired off of the speaker level wires. I sounds pretty...

    I have an older generation soul (purchased when they first came out) and I have had non stop gear shifting issues. Today i went to the dealer and they had upgraded values for the auto transmission. So basically they downloaded some new figures into my soul and now it shifts much better without...

    Ok just bought a 2010 kia soul+ I wanted the audio upgrace, the dealer didn't have one and after much haggling dropped the price and assured me I could do something better anyway. So several questions I can't find answers to... 1-can dealer do the audio upgrade (local dealer said no, but...
