Excellent Factory Sub Replacement
2009 Hyundai Santa Fe
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Ease of Use
Let me start by saying, this was not a simple install. However, it's due to the fact that the factory Santa Fe Infinity Sub is in an awkward location and no replacement speaker will fit without modifications. Once you pop the rear panel back (get a helper) and remove the factory sub, you'll need to do a few things. Splice factory connectors off, use a dremel to widen the hole so the Polk will fit and test before mounting (obviously). I was able to use 2 of the factory screw holes and then had to drill a new one. Once you tested the speaker and it works, mount it. Toss the extra plastic ring away as it won't fit when you put the Infinity grill back on. You will also need to grind down the Infinity grill cover so it doesn't touch the Polk sub. DO NOT grind away the clips. Just the inner ring that protrudes. The Polk sub has a nice clean sound. Better than the factory Infinity. It works VERY well with the factory head unit. For the price, I have ZERO complaints. It's a great sub! The install was a bit of a pain but well worth it. Took me about an hour and a half with the right tools and a second person to help hold the plastic panel away from the speaker. I didn't remove as it seemed like more work than it was worth.
Pros: Great sound and range - great price
