  1. 2018 Soul volume knob

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I got in my vehicle one morning recently, and went to turn the volume down. I know I can use the steering wheel controls, but I have a habit of using the knob sometimes. The knob wouldn’t turn, was loose, and fell off onto the floorboard. I put it back on and it clicked in. There seems to...
  2. Tweeter volume?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    So I’m new to the Soul and am kind of an audio junky. I was excited to hear that there were tweeters on the dash. Am I the only one who thinks they are extremely quiet? I wasn’t even sure my car had the 6 speakers it advertised. I had to turn the treble way up and put my ear right to the tweeter...

    I have the 2018 Soul Plus with the standard sound system. The volume goes down when backing up. Is there a way to keep the volume from doing this?
  4. Speed Dependent Volume Control '16 Soul + with Sound

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Hi - I tried searching the forum but didn't see anything re the option on Sound / Advanced tab re Speed Dependent Volume Control. I got a + so I could get the nice sound system and thought this would be a nice feature. When you increase your speed, e.g., going on the interstate, the volume is...
  5. MAX Navigation Volume Weak

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    I have the 2014 KIA Soul Redzone and have started to adjust my settings in the NAVI System. I have set the navigation volume to the highest level and find that the voice commands are not loud enough for me. I also have a KIA Soul 2010 Sport that I use a portable Garmin GPS device. The volume on...
  6. Aux connevtor default volume

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    I am working on a project for in my soul to integrate some communications radios with the factory stereo.

  7. Audio Upgrade Package volume cap?

    Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    I have a 2012 Kia Soul ! with the Audio Upgrade Package, and I was wondering where the cap volume is? I don't want to try it too hard and blow any speakers. So what I'm really asking is what will happen if I were to turn it up all the way? I know the sub sucks, and I wouldn't lament too much...
  8. AM Receiver Function Intermittent Distortion & Loss of volume

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    All other functions (Jukebox, Sirius, FM etc.) seems normal/unaffected. Temperature seems to impact somewhat but not exclusively so. The speaker light ring seems to confirm/indicate the temporary loss/change of volume eliminating the ext amp, antennae, speakers, amplifier/output sections of the...
  9. Volume limit on factory speakers?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)

  11. Low volume from AUX input solution

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    Hello all :) Long story short my last vehicle had an after market Sony stereo which had the option of being able to control the input gain on the aux input so when I hooked up my iPhone I got the desired amount of volume. With my Kia Soul I was finding that when attaching my iPhone via the...
  12. Bluetooth volume?

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    My bluetooth had been working perfectly fine for the past two months until this afternoon. I tried to call and the volume was very low, while driving and parked, even at full volume. I tried adjusting the volume on my phone, but it didn't help. Does anyone know of any settings or adjustments...
  13. Bluetooth Volume Really Low in my Kia Soul

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Does anyone else have this problem? The CD, radio, etc...great volume. The bluetooth on the other hand is really low. I have to basically max out the volume just to hear the other person. It's annoying. I'm at the point of thinking the bluetooth is useless and am ready to turn it off.

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    I use an iPhone 4 to play all my music from. I've noticed that the volume output is noticeably lower than say music from the radio or satellite. Anyone else notice this? The after-market deck in my last vehicle had the option of increasing the gain on the aux input but this feature is missing...
  16. Bluetooth volume

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    The volume of the bluetooth reception is so low on my 2011 Soul that it is hard to understand incomming voices while the car is in motion. I have turned up the volume control to max. Is this a common trait, or do I have a faulty system?

    I am having problems with my bluetooth since I got my Soul. It pairs perfect, makes and receives calls. The people calling and receiving calls from me can hear me fine, but I can not hear them.

    After 4 months, today the volume control on the steering went crazy. I pushed for more volume (+) and it went down:confused: I tried turning it off an start the engine again but did not work. Came back to normal now but is this going to happen often? Went to the dealer, she look at me with...

    Is there any way to turn down the volume of the voice when it's done downloading the phonebook? It says "TRANSFER COMPLETE" really loud right in my ear! haha
