Greetings, I purchased a new Kona yesterday. I want to install a simple powered 8 inch alpine subwoofer, under a seat or in the back. After searching these forums as well as Google, I cannot find a wiring diagram or any specific wiring harness / adapter that I could get my RCA red and white audio output from, or the left and right speaker wires that I could splice into for the subwoofer. Does anyone know 1. How to remove the factory head unit. 2. Where to find a wiring harness to plug into it that I can then attach to my speaker inputs or the rca inputs on an amp / powered subwoofer. Or 3. Just simply how to install an amp in a Kona? I've done this on many cars but nothing this new or fancy, I also have a reverse camera and don't want to mess up any wiring. Thanks!

Crutchfield.com will have some info for you, a lot also depends on which trim line you purchased, SE/Limited/Ultimate, because that will tell you what your starting with in the car.

Hmm I will check there and see if I can find something, thanks. I have the 2019 base model awd in Canada, maybe it's an SE.

Crutchfield does not have anything or any instructions for the Kona.

Have you looked here.. http://hkona.com service manuals.
These integrated units are not as straightforward to tap into. Maybe a call to A pro installer
Can get you some pointers..

Just let it be known....that link you gave, goes to the Ukraine. What brought this up to me is I have an elaborate security system that only lets me get to only 12 counties and the Ukraine definitely is not one of them. It also has 2 different enterprise base content filters. This is how I get to the internet at my house.

If you are keeping the stock head unit you will need a line out converter (costs like 25 bucks). It will allow you to plug in the RCAs.



As far as removing the HU-




Good Luck!

Radio wire colors

left front speaker green+ orange- /right front speaker green+ orange- /left rear speaker yellow+ black- /right rear speaker brown+ white-. All these wires are behind the radio but can also get them in the door jam harness for each door.

I recently bought a 2019 Kona Limited. Had an elaborate sound sytem in my old car that included an Infinity Basslink (sub with built-in amp) and want to now add this to my Kona. I already have the "upgraded" audio system with sub in back right corner and stereo amp under passenger front seat. Does anyone know specs of this Hyundai amp under the seat, pinouts? wandering if i can connect my powered sub to this amp unit under the seat or the built-in sub in the back, rather than tear out the dash and connect to the head unit.
Any help appreciated!

No, dont connect oe amp to basslink, you will get destructive interference, the extra load on the amp will blow a fuse at minimum, and could start an electrical fire. Use a rca line output converter to connect with stock wiring, run a separate power and ground wire, and dont ground to the seat bracket hardware, its high resistance, not a good ground.

Sorry, i wasn't clear in my post!

I'm just trying to figure out if the connections i need for my (extra) sub are available at this amp location under the seat, rather than having to tear into the dash at the head unit (not to actually power the sub with). Just need the SIGNAL OUTPUT and wondering if i can patch into it there rather than the head unit in the dash. I'm assuming its possible, as its an amp, and would get the stereo signal from head unit, then outputting to all the speakers in the car.

Or alternately, if i can get to a signal output from the existing sub in rear of car? (don't know if there is a separate amp connected to it in back, or if that built-in sub gets amped from the unit under the seat as well).

Just wondering if anyone has any SPECS yet on this under-seat amp brick. Pin-outs, connections?

Thanks!

left front speaker green+ orange- /right front speaker green+ orange- /left rear speaker yellow+ black- /right rear speaker brown+ white-. All these wires are behind the radio but can also get them in the door jam harness for each door.
Thank you very much, I'll use this info to do the install.

Thanks, if that's the way then I'll get a line out converter.

Donaldjrhome,

Is that correct in that both the front speakers are the same colored wires? You have it listed that both sides are green+/Orange-.
