I have been unable to locate video or a service manual to show me how to remove the door panels and swap out the factory speakers on my 2021 Hyundai Venue Denim. Has anyone had any luck finding this information?

Scroll down. Click on the doors. They list a LOT of speakers for the Venue. The fit of the tweeter is a bit vague, though. I think I have narrowed my selection down to the Polk 6502 in the front and the Polk 652 in the back. I still want to see video or printed instructions before I go prying off my door, though.

Not quite our cars, but from my experiences with working on cars, its generally the same. Look for hidden flaps to remove all the bolts, then the rest is prying the card off the door and the push pins will release.


Other reference videos:

I can't find the exact video, but as far as the tweeters go, you can get one with a low profile or get a larger tweeter and using a circular saw to cut a hole in the door card to insert the tweeter into.

I've replaced all 4 of my speakers. Here's the process to remove the door panel as best I can remember:

  1. Pop open the little cover inside the interior handle and remove the screw it's hiding.
  2. Pop off the little cover at the top of the door panel (It's kind of in the door jamb, facing the rear of the car) and remove the screw in there.
  3. Pop off the triangle plastic cover at the corner by the rearview mirror.
  4. Feel around at the bottom of the door panel, and you should feel a little opening where you can use a trim puller to start to pull off the panel from the clips holding it on.
  5. Once those clips are all loose, you should be able to pull the panel upwards and then off. The cables for the door latch may still be attached, but they disconnect easily.

Thanks. What speakers did you replace yours with and how much difference did it make?

I went with the Polk DB 652 because I have a Venue SE which doesn't have separate tweeters up front. TBH, it didn't make as much difference as I had hoped, which is why I then added a small 4 channel amp w/ DSP.

Something unexpansive that sounds better and have a more volume that the one that comes from factory, $200 top I think.
If you want something louder, just turn up the volume. The issue is whether or not it's still going to sound good at a louder volume.

In that circumstance, there's no replacement for more power. No matter how good the speakers are, they won't sound good if you don't have enough power.
You can add a new head unit, which will almost certainly put out more than the factory head unit. Or you can add an external amp.

I went with the amp because:
  • Compared to a new head unit - It was cheaper, easier to install, and provided more power.
  • I didn't want to deal with all the hassle of a new head unit: putting a dash kit in, trying to make all the car features work (steering wheel controls, backup camera), etc.

The amp I purchased was $250, and the speakers came to about $180 for all 4 of them.
My opinion: If you're happy with everything about the factory audio except the sound, then add a small 4 channel amp first, then upgrade the speakers next. After that you can decide if you need to add a subwoofer or anything else.
