Speaker replacement help

Is there a guide for replacing the speakers in the new Elantra coupe? My girlfriend recently bought a brand new Elantra, and she wants new speakers for Christmas. I've done speaker installs before, not a big deal, but if there are any tips and tricks specific to the Elantra coupe, I'd love to read about them before I dive in.

Also, 6.5 or 6.75 speakers in the doors and rear panels? Any recommendations for speakers to use?

Charles.

Wicked find, That will help a lot on such a new car like this.

I attempted at an audio install on a brand new car before and managed to break some clips if i had something like this it would have helped to identify where the clips were. Being impatient gets to the best of us sometimes haha

Yup...they say patience is a virtue...LOL

I replaced my coupes stock speakers with Infinity 6030cs 's and wow... what a difference! I as planning on adding an amp, but I am pretty happy with the new sound especially as the coupes OEM headunit already has a built in base boost (I think it's called P-base)... so I am very happy now

Hello. I am planning on installing Infinity RS as well. The 6030cs in the door. And 6032si in the rear. Also plan on installing my 12" JL W3 (2Ohm) and Kicker IX500.1 Amp. And my Pyle 3.6F Capacitor. I may upgrade to the 8.6F. If I have room. Cant do it now. It keeps snowing. And the Temps at Freezing or below, I'll wait until Spring.

Thats a nice looking install!! I love when someone installs a nice system, but to look at it, you would have NO idea! It's been a while since I did combos, I may just do the same in my car.

Rear Speakers are DONE. Wired up my Speaker to RCA adapters (Kicker). Already laid the 4 gauge Power and Ground wires. Just need to do the fronts. And mount the Amp and Boss Audio 18 Farad Capacitor.
