...in a 2002 Hyundai Elantra; I have Type X Comps. Where would be the best place to mount them? I'm not sure which method to use either. There's flush, swivel and surface.

depends on what you wanna do with your car. i think the flush mount looks f-ing sweet in my car, and it helps bring the music up now it sounds like its in front of me insted of beign closer to my thighs

edit: should of said i got mine right in the door panel above my power window controls. you could do them in the A pillar as well. anything you do must make sure its not too close to your ears. i remember reading on here that you should keep them at least 12" away from you, not sure to the validity of that but it seems like a good idea.

My mom has an elantra station wagon but i think its like 99 or 98. I'de defenintly put them in the flush mounts. And put them in the dash facing towards the windsheild. Just my 2 cents though.

Where you mount them is completely car dependent. Go to Home Depot and get some Velcro. Start just trying out different places...low on the door by the mid, A-pillars, etc etc. General rule of thumb is to make sure they are no further than half the diameter of the mid away from the mid (if you have a 6.5" mid, then 3.75"). Again, that's *general* and definitely doesn't apply in every situation. And generally it's best if they are not in a reflective enviorment (on top of the dash aiming at the windshield would probably be a bad idea)
