    While I find my Infinity speaker system in my 2014 EX nice.. much better than the standard system, I wish the system would be louder. It seems like I have to turn mine up past 30 to be considered loud. Nothing is wrong with my unit (to my knowledge), but I just feel it could louder. Is there...

    Thinking about swapping my speakers in my 16 lx for aftermarket what have you had success with? Did you use deadening? Coax or component? Stock head unit or amped mids and highs?

    Hi, was able to acquire a good set of Boston Acoustic component speakers but they are 5.25 inch speakers. Would love to use them in my 2011 Kia Optima but was wondering if they are compatible. Has anyone been able to install 5.25 inch speakers to replace their 6.5?

    I have a 13 LX with the UVO system and the FM reception, while not awful, is really lacking. I drive my Mustang over the same route and I'm listening to stations 15-18 miles further down the road. I know that doesn't sound like much, but when listening to morning news during my commute, it...
