    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...

    Noticed when playing music in Kia SXL 2016, I would check the Quantum Logic sound and find it was off.  Checked manual.  Absolutely nothing in manual on this.  Asked local Kia dealer.  They suggested that if playing with ipod connected, there may be songs on my ipod that do not have Quantum...

    Hey all.. I am the new owner of a 2015 Optima EX with standard audio (no nav, no premium sound). System is OK, nothing special. As with every other car I have owned, I plan on replacing pretty much every component of the audio system. I like to have good sound and good clarity with a bit of...

    OK everyone, I thought I'd try here as my Google searches didn't reveal much useful. I have a 2017 Optima PHEV (I don't think the PHEV part matters for this purpose). So let's say I am listening to music from my phone via bluetooth. Done driving, turn the car off. Next time I get in the car...

    As someone with a 2018 Optima with the Harman Kardon System, I wonder how this Krell System will compare: I'm really curious, the Harman Kardon system imo is very hard to beat, it sounds good with every sort of music in it. How do you guys think the the Krell System will hold up against the...

    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...

    I have '12 Optima and the AC system has leaked down. I have replaced system components before, used a vacuum pump, re-pressurized systems, etc. But only a shade tree mechanic. I bought a tool that lets you replace schrader valves in the AC pressure ports under pressure, and it works well...

    I've been on a small hunt for an exhaust system for my Optima (remember that recent thread I made that no one could view? Lol). From the exhaust systems I've listened to on YouTube, I liked the cp-e cat back the most. Unfortunately, this exhaust is only available for the older gen Optimas. So, I...
