    I installed an amplifier and two 12in subwoofers in my 2013 Kia Optima with infinity sound system but no nav. Right now I'm keeping the stock head unit and speakers because it sounds better than using a metra adapter with an aftermarket head unit in my opinion, until I can figure out a better...

    I turned my car on and my radio sounds level is low but when I try to lower or raise the volume it doesn't change? Does this mean I blew my speakers?

    I have a 2020 Optima S, just had new speakers and sub installed, before I could turn the car off and the radio would still play for a couple minutes.

    Hello all, I am planning to install a new headunit this week and I was wondering if anyone has had any luck with retaining the factory camera. I am fairly confident that I can physically adapt the connection to RCA but I'm concerned about signal compatibility. I have a 2015 Optima LX with UVO...

    I'm installing some extra cameras into my Phoenix 12 inch head unit, and had an idea, that I'd like to get some input on: The general idea is to take the two side camera inputs, and instead route them to a pair of cameras at the front bumper, instead of off to each side. I have already...

    Hey all, so we just purchased our 2017 optima ex hybrid with the Harmon Kardon stereo. I was hoping to be blown away after reading so many great reviews about it, however it sounds a bit distorted to me, especially at low volumes. Does anyone know if there is a way to completely reset it or if...

    Hello, I just bought a used optima which had no stock radio, and the heater controls are are also not working or lighting up. Behind where the stock stereo went are two wraps of wires either that were once connected then severed, or two separate wraps one maybe to heater and the other to back of...

    Hey was pondering the idea, that the 2015 style radios amd climate control center in the optima lx, just looks better. Are they compatible, am I able to what I would assume, laterally move to that updated style? Has anyone done something similar?

    Do any of you know if you simply take the face off the stock stereo (non-uvo) of a 2015 EX GDI, will the car still start? I need to know if there is some kind of lock-out feature. Thanks,
