Audiovox has this info for that car.  If you have no speakers in the rear deck, is this a Forte Coupe?  Following info is for the 4 door.

its the 4 door if you get the premium sound it comes with 6 speakers the extra 2 are in the rear deck. i have the standard sound and it has a 6.5 in each door.

got it for my back and forth to work beater, but still need to beable to do low to mid 40s on the meter cause last car was doing high 44s with a single 10" and i miss it...

About VSS wire voltage:
I have a 2010 Kia Forte Koup. According to info from this site, the speed sense wire is GRAY/ORANGE (pin 1, 8-pin radio plug).
However, when I checked the voltage while driving, the average was ~ 6VDC. And when I stopped (engine on), voltage sometimes dropped to 0.05VDC and other times increased to 13.2VDC! (again, when stopped and engine on). When stopped and engine off, VSS voltage was of course 0.0VDC.
Did you connect this VSS wire (GRAY/ORANGE) to your radio; any issues with it?

The only reason why you would need to connect the VSS wire to your radio is if you had a radio with navigation. VSS stands for vehicle speed sense. For power make sure you have a dedicated 12v and accessory or your radio will not work properly.

Turns out I made a stupid mistake...the voltmeter was set to measure DC NOT AC voltage (speed sense signal is AC). Changed the selection to AC voltage, did the measurements, and all is well. My guess is the 13.2VDC I saw at zero speed is the DC bias voltage??? Anyways, thank you both for your help.

im gonna use a loc with built in remote output so i will need 12v.

where did you tap there is no rear deck speakers.

Can probably tap in the B pillar before the wires go into the rear doors. Not an ideal spot since you'll have to mono the LOC, but it works.

Is anyone sure of the rear righ/left speakers polarity. I would assume that red is positive and blue negative but cant confirm. I hooked up a psr100 powered substation and i wired it the way that someone said ( not logically ) my sub works but i dont hear anything coming from the speakers in the rear. I am assuming its because i made red negative and blue positive....
