KIA Displays Two Concept Vehicles at SEMA 2009
Based on the Soul urban passenger vehicle, the Black "Sinister" Soul has been lowered and enhanced with 20-inch black rims with machined accents and smoked-out headlamps and tail lamps. The car is finished in a matte sinister black exterior paint job by Buck Wild Designs with Spectral gray accents and black-out custom trim.
Inside, the tweaked Soul features an 11-speaker 1,300-watt sound system, provided by Infinity Audio Systems, while the advanced Infinity Kappa Series Class-D full-range 500-watt amplifier drives 125 watts per channel through four channels.
Two Reference Series 6-1/2-inch two-way loudspeakers and two Reference Series 6-1/2-inch component systems deliver increased bass output, while the edge-driven textile dome tweeters reduce distortion at high output levels.
Moreover, for those looking to up the bass with low-frequency effects, Infinity employed a pair of 12-inch single voice coil (SVC) subwoofers, driven separately by an 800-watt amplifier.
Joining the Soul is a modified concept of the Forte sedan. The White Forte sedan sports 18-inch 5Zigen wheels, a custom catback exhaust and a lowered stance, and benefits from a Kia-designed accessory body kit and rear spoiler, as well as a custom paint job with blacked-out roof and side mirrors.
The interior boasts gunmetal accents and a carbon fiber sport shifter and a nine-speaker, 360-watt sound system with a subwoofer built into a custom enclosure on the right side of the trunk.
