You will probably get better info from www.kiatechinfo.com. Schematics are in ETM section. To read schematics you will need IE and Adobe SVG viewer (download from site) installed. All schematics have colour codes and code index is in page 3 of the 'General' section.

There are variations depending on standard or premium audio and/or remote control options.

(We don't have same options in UK so can't be more specific.)

I would be willing to bet that you have the amplifier under your driver seat, and was sold the wrong wire harness as a result.

You can tap the blue/white and blue cables (amp or pwr/ant) wires to the wire that seems to not go anywhere on the vehicle side of the harness. This will supply power to the amp/crossover. Your best bet would be to send the harness back and get one for the EX model (if you've got the amp and an LX, than it's the LX-Sport Edition).
