Well after years of being a bass head it's time to "grow up" and try another challege. This will be the first time I attempt to build anything SQ oriented so we'll see how it goes.

This build is probably gonna take a while because its my everyday driver, so it's not like I can leave everything torn out. So it's going to be a 2 day a week build.

Anyway...on to the eye candy...

The Car:
2011 Hyundai Sonata 2.0T Limited Edition

Rear End


Profile Shot


Side Shot after 35% Tint


Xenon Supply 6000K Low Beams and Fogs


Turbo!!!

Continuing on with the build...

I forgot I had the pictures of my fiberglass tweeter pods. Didn't get pictures of each step but it's pretty basic.

My goals for this build is to keep the stock look. I want it to look like everything was supposed to go were I'm putting it.

Factory Grill:



Made some fiberglass molds of factory grills:


Fiberglass filler, some body filler, sanded, then given a little test fit:


Test Fitting the tweeters:


Wrapped in vinyl:



Seeing what it looks like in the car:



I think they came out nice. Now I'm gonna find some vinyl to match the grain and color better and they should look real nice.

That's all for now...stay tuned!

Yea, I'll have to see. I may have to move them after I do some testing. Like I said I'm a noob when it comes to SQ so I'm learning as I go:thumbsup:
You may want to try bringing them more forward in the pods, and then aim them up and in towards the back of your rear view mirror. This will help stop early reflections and will create some imaging if you get them just right. You will soon learn that tweeter placement is very important and you can't just pick a place and slap them there. It takes a lot of listening to get them right.

I was actually thinking about doing this or mounting them in the sail panels on the door.

Great equipment good luck to ya.

Quoted for truth. I felt the same way.

I've got a Genesis Coupe, with "Infinity" (Actually has JBL! all over the amp :) ). Where were you planning on getting your signal? I grabbed a full range signal ahead of the amp. It was about 2V balanced.

If you aren't aware, there is a website called "HMAService.com" which is Hyundai's service info site. You can set up a free account and have access to TSB's, and wiring diagrams and such.
