Apologies in advance if there's a better forum for these questions.

Does anyone know the difference between the KIA and HK subs?

Is there a noticeable amount of wind noise or reduced MPG with a Rhino Rack roof rack on a GT?

Thanks!

fairing will help out a lot. Can you post some pictures of the Rhino racks?

To reduce wind noise try adding a fairing https://www.etrailer.com/Accessories-and-Parts/Rhino-Rack/RR43249.html?

Which Kia subwoofer are you referring to, link?
I think he's referring to the subs under the seats. The stock system has them as well as the Harmon Kardon system. I imagine the HK system has more power routed to them though. They don't do much except move tissues or dollars. I've thought about looking into what power they can handle or if I can get a low profile sub to replace them

Here you go. Anyone have a recommendation for a wind fairing? Thinking the Yakima might have better curvature to match the curved roof line of the Stinger.

I thought all the fairings were adjustable to fit the curvature.

Those bars look great.

The subs under seats look identical between the non-HK and HK, I wouldn't be surprise if they are the same subs.

Thanks! How's your beast these days? I was thinking of taking mine in for a first oil change at a different dealership. The price diff is 59 v 120. Is that ok even if you lease?

As long as they use good oil like full synthetic GF-4 an above, if you can get it for 59, take it.

She's moving along slowly. Being stuck in the all-seasons has me in no hurry to get too many power upgrades going yet.

You can do it at any shop or in your driveway. If there's ever a potential warranty claim, you'll want to be able to produce receipts is all!
