Is it screws to tak the door off or those little plug/snap things?There is a tab that needs to be removed behind the door handle lever, you will find a screw there as welll as caps to be removed to find screws along the edge of the door.
Where the handle is to close the door from the inside, there is a small lid type cover. Use a small flat screwdriver and lift it up from, this will expose the screw. Where the door open lever is, open the lever, while the lever is held open use a angle pick tool and hook the cover behind the lever, a little wiggle and it should pop off. The remaining clips on the door panel a re the push in pop type. You can use a door panel puller tool (which kind of looks like a Y) and pop them out. Them out.Is it screws to tak the door off or those little plug/snap things?
I am sure you can ad spacer to bring the speaker closer to the door panel. I know there was a lot of space between the face of the speaker and the door panel. I am not sure of the space behind the speaker to the glass.Can the Sonata handle only shallow mount 6.5 speakers? I was on Crutchfield and noticed a very limited amount of speakers were available for the 2011.
Hmm.. thanks for the reply. I really didn't want to be stuck with shallow speakers as I'm not going with a subwoofer and just wanted to upgrade my sound through some decent speakers.I am sure you can ad spacer to bring the speaker closer to the door panel.

Would anyone know what the alternator current rating is on the 2011 Sonatas? Just wondering at what wattage you need to be considering upgrading the stock unit.
So I guess it could power a decent size audio amp without problems? I'm looking at the alpine pdx 5 4 x 100w and 1 x 200w
Great. I got some Boston Acoustics components for the front. I also purchased the Alpine pxe-h660 signal processor. I wanted to keep the head unit (not really but no easy way to replace it) to not lose the steering controls. Hoping the signal processor will improve the overall sound. Won't be able to install everything for a couple of weeks when I get some time off.
How did you hook up your amps to the factory HU?
I think it is the same floor harness for all models it just depends what amp you have.Is this for the standard head unit (no navigation, no fancy speakers)?
I did this yesterday to install the polkaudio speakers in the front doors. Unfortunately i wasn't successful because of special bracket and connector needed for the install. I started a new post on this, to get suggestions on how to make that bracket. For now I have ostponed install till I get that bracket ready.Has anyone removed the door panel to replace a speaker (front doors)? Just wondering how to disconnect the door handle/lock mechanism.
