The audio system in the Kia vehicles is the most interesting and appealing feature in the car for the music lovers. There are actually quite a lot of components which are a part of the audio system in a Kia automobile.
Antenna Roof type antenna
If you Kia vehicle has an audio system, an amplifying antenna is installed in your Kia vehicle. This antenna can be removed from the vehicle when you wash your Kia vehicle.
How car audio works
AM (MW, LW) and FM radio signals are broadcast from transmitter towers located around your city. They are intercepted by the radio antenna on your Kia car. This signal is then received by the radio and sent to your car speakers. AM (MW, LW) broadcasts can be received at greater distances than FM broadcasts. This is because AM (MW, LW) radio waves are transmitted at low frequencies. These long, low frequency radio waves can follow the curvature of the earth rather than travelling straight out into the atmosphere. In addition, they curve around obstructions so that they can provide better signal coverage.
If the temperature inside the Kia car is too high, open the car windows for ventilation before using your car audio.
