  1. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Like to know if anyone has installed Kicker 46CSS674 components OR Infinity CSX60 components in their Optima Which one would be best for bass and vocals? I have listened to them on Crutchfield but they both sound good. This means nothing once put into the car My musical appreciation is...

    So I’m not very tech savvy in the car audio department so I apologize if I say anything wrong. Recently my car audio system (Kia optima 2015 SXL with infinity sound system) started to get quieter and has gotten worse in the last month. I bought the car it was fine about a year ago. 20 on the...

    I recently bought a 2012 optima hybrid from a dealer and I'd like to know if my car has an infinity sound system so I can know what to get when I upgrade the stereo; how can I tell if it has an infinity sound system? Thanks!
  4. DIY : Audio, Navigation, And Electronics
    I'm losing my mind!!!! I recently purchased a 2013 optima, no nav, with infinity. The factory stereo leaves alot to be desired, especially in the "user friendly" area! Plus I need a new back up camera. So figured may as well replace the factory HU with the AWESOME Pioneer unit I had in my last...

    Guys, does anyone have or have a link to a schematic of the stock stereo setup? Non- Infinity. And doesn't anyone know if it is 4 channel/6channel etc.? Like how many watts RMS. I would like as much information as possible. Thank, Shep

    Have any of you guys with the older head unit upgrade to a newer head unit with apple car play? I’m tired of the old head unit and ready for an upgrade. Let me know. Thanks.
  7. Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    As the title states, 19x8.5 et50 Infinity M45 Wheels - would these work on a '13 Optima? I'm riding stock height now and looking for a new setup. I'll be putting on 235/35/19's, bit of a mild stretch which should help. My only concern would be the offset, since there's nothing above et40 in the...

I bought a tesla style Android screen that it should be plug n play for my model but unfortunately it wasn't.. 1. I got no sound. I only hear...

    I see a few threads from people wanting to swap out the Infinity head units for something more versatile and flexible. I did too but nobody answered my questions, so I did some research and took a gamble. The key for this install is getting a non-nav climate control unit because once you get a...

    I have a 2015 Kia Optima Hybrid with navigation and the infinity sound system upgrade. I'm looking to upgrade my audio and I'm looking at the AudioControl LC7i along with an amp and some focal integration speakers. However, I've been told by someone else I need a DSP because this car outputs...

    Hey guys, I just discovered that the Inifinity sub under the rear deck of my Optima has been unplugged and the factory connectors cut off. Does anyone have an idea as to where I could purchase a couple factory sub plugs? Pic for reference. Thanks

    I want to tap into 2 of these wires, + and -, for a loc, to an aftermarket amp/sub. What color are the wires on the factory sub that I should use? Thanks, Jason
  15. Entertainment: Audio, Navigation, and Electronics
    Hello everyone. I have 2 questions. Is the stereo system a 2 channel or 4 channel system for Optima with non-infinity sound? My audio is dead due to the amp being dead, so I am going to replace the amp with my 4 channel alpine amp and add another amp for subwoofer. Also I am going to change...
  16. Entertainment: Audio, Navigation, and Electronics
    I have a 2015 Optima Hybrid EX w/ infinity sound system. It seems a bit lackluster to me compared to my old cars in which I had entirely replaced the head unit + speakers. I was hoping since it was an upgraded infinity system it would be comparable, but since it doesn't seem like it I'm...

    I'm exactly 2 years into this car. Still love it. I blew the drivers side dash speaker, since the system is starting to sound a little worn, just not as clean and clear as it once was. Could be my old ears, or likely the poor dash speaker throwing off the stage, however in an attempt to keep the...
  18. Entertainment: Audio, Navigation, and Electronics
    Just curious what the most affordable way to accomplish this would be. Is it possible to replace the non-Nav with the stock Nav? Is it a simple one-to-one replacement? What's the price of the stock Nav unit? Are their any after-market head-units that would be essentially be plug-n-play? I'm...

    HI, this is my first post. Just got the car 6 days ago. I have the Nav system/Infinity premium package. The sound may be adequate for some people, but not for me. Sounds good for what it is, but I want to improve it just a little. I am curious to hear how members here have upgraded their...
