    thanks for adding this bit of info- never had a need for using the auto eq in the 360.3 so didn't realize that. it would be nice to be able to start with a flat signal from the get-go, but using the same eq for the outputs seems strange. i'm not too worried about it...this car isn't ever going to be the "ultimate sq car" or anything of that nature

    unrelated to audio, but surprised to see 4 wheel disc brakes on a car in this price range. not really necessary in a car this light, but i can't complain



    factory radio



    factory tweeter mount from driver's perspective, passenger side



    same thing, driver's side



    hatch



    hatch floor opened showing foam tray - there is a spare tire underneath this. from the feet of the foam tray to the top of it is ~7.75"




    right side of the hatch, the stock sub is behind this on models with premium audio i believe - i tried to capture it but it seems like kia engineers tried to make it look like a smiley face. hatch light killed the picture though

    Re: 2017 Kia Soul

    got this in the mail today...



    slow strip tease




    with the badge added - i like that this isn't stuck on permanently, instead they let you stick it in the proper direction for your install



    connections...i like that they're all on one side of the amp, not a big fan of having connections on opposite ends of amps



    control cover removed



    nifty trick to keep the screws in the cover panel so you don't lose them

    more to come tomorrow when subs & speakers come. i got a shipment notification for the processor today as well.

    Re: 2017 Kia Soul

    so, some things came in, and it's good news and bad news. so first, the good news:




    gotta show the booty too

    subs came in, they look great. not anything super high end of course, but should fill out the low end pretty nicely. they're nice and shallow, and feel well built.

    the bad news is, the virtus set came in, and while they looked okay, i hooked them up for testing & both tweeters are dead. kinda ticked off but i had a suspicion something would go wrong w/ that deal, so whatever. hopefully the seller doesn't make this a pain in the ass. i'm looking at some potential changes for the front speakers now, since i planned my sub & amp budget around having gotten the speakers for cheaper than i was anticipating paying - originally was planning to spend about $400, but the virtus were quite a bit less, so i bought a nicer amp. i definitely don't want to swing $550 for a brand new virtus set, but thinking the open box audiofrog gs60 + open box gs10 would be a nice set. the tempo ultra's are still in the running too, just not sure which of the two would be better...

    Sucks about the Morels... hopefully the seller will work with you on a solution. Maybe partial refund so you can get a set of replacement tweeters.

    Re: 2017 Kia Soul

    really kills me to get used tweeters in non-operating condition, it happened so much I just stopped buying tweeters from almost everybody.

    I don't know if it's that they think they are being cute or whatever, but anyone who sells bunk tweeters should have to pay extra to "make whole" in my humble opinion, since the entire used tweeter market is in jeopardy.

    Re: 2017 Kia Soul

    so, the guy was totally cool about everything, good guy to work with. i ended up getting a full refund (i offered to cover what he paid to ship them to me, so i wouldn't feel like an ass ) & ordered replacements today...audiofrog gs60 + audiofrog gb10 combo, i went with the gb tweeters since they can be crossed a little lower than the gs. sad to give up the morel goodness, but i was really impressed with the audiofrog stuff that i heard at the meets in NC so i'm excited to check these out. pics to come as soon as i get them in, as usual

    this thing showed up today seems nice enough, and it's super tiny.
