2019 Kia Forte Sound System quality?

I am debating between Kia Forte S and Kia forte EX, while i have to pay a little bit more for the EX with HK sound system, has anybody have the experience of listening music in Kia Forte S? with regular sound system? is it that bad. I believe S comes equipped with Kia's regular sound system with Tweeter Speakers
please advice.

2019 Kia Forte S Speaker Upgrades?

I am looking to upgrade my 2019 Kia Forte S door speakers, and i heard it is an easy procedure. Just want to make sure what are my options here? and how can i do it? or i have to get an expert do it.

I am trying to upgrade the 4 speakers installed in doors. Someone told me its an easy process you take out and then take the new ones. will i cut or do any damage to actual factory speakers?

In Canada we don't get the HK until the highest trim level EX limited, so my EX has the standard audio system. Sounds fine to me, you can adjust the tune a bit to amp up the bass and make it sound more premium to some extent.

Personally I feel the Forte isn't the most quiet car when cruising ( road and wind noise ), it's not bad when idling though, you can barely hear the engine. Depending on where you drive (road conditions affect the noise level) even if you get good speakers you might not be able to concentrate on your tracks as much as in a luxury vehicle due to distractions.

But really I'm quite happy with the car, gas prices have been rising lately, with this car I can achieve down to 4.7L/100km in ECO mode on certain routes, saves me trips to the station and cash
