Same as the stereo in my canadian Kia. Could one of the many differences between the Canadian and US models. The stereo included with the S5 in the US is http://www.kia.com/spectra5/images/audio-system.jpg. apparently not available with the MP3 player that we get in Canada. now I understand the conversations about the stereo quality. The canadian and US models seem to have different stereos.
Enjoy your S5's to the fullest.
#18 of 25 Mp3 Player on US Spectra5???

I'm picking up my brand new Spectra5 tomorrow & I'm wondering if the stock CD player will play Mp3 disks? I've read conflicting messages. It sounds like the Spectra5's in Canada will but maybe not in the US? If you own a US model with the stock CD player & have tried it, can you please let me know? THANKS!

The Kia website shows the only Spectra5 radio as a double-din CD player that can't play mp3s. But I've seen single-din mp3 cd players in some Spectra5's around the Internet. Is this an option that's not offered anymore, or were people taking these out of other Kias? I'm kinda confused.

I had a similar Problem Years ago with a 1991 Gt Escort. Hard to get to and not enugh room for a serious upgrade. What I did was disconnect the Speakers, put an amp under the rear Deck and install 2 Pioneer Egg Speakers on the top of the rear Deck. I don't know if Pioneer makes them anymore but they sounded great! It's been such a long Time ago I can't remember the actual name of the Speakers but they where Egg shaped and had a low profile in the rear Deck allowing only a partially restricted view. The only drawback to this was the fact that once done, You can't remove the Deck anymore to gain room for loading large items in the hatchback. I think if I was to do it now with My Spec 5 I'd put a quick disconnect for the unit so I could un plug it and take the Deck out for hauling large items. The only problem then would be only getting Music from the front Speakers while the Deck was removed. After reading this I'm going to start looking around because like most Spec 5 Owners I'd like allot more out of the rear Speakers Myself, I'll let Ya know what I find out or if You see something out there, let Me know.
