Many award-winning sound-off competitors put their mid-woofers and tweeters in custom-built kick panel enclosures to get concert-quality stereo imaging. But why pay hundreds of dollars to an installer when you can do it yourself? Just mount your 6-1/2" component system in Q-Logic's Q-Forms kick panel enclosures, and your car speakers will deliver competition-quality imaging without the expensive price tag.
Q-Forms enclosures hold your speakers in an ideal position, angling them to maximize sound quality. Since the Q-Forms are located near your feet, the distance from your ears to each speaker becomes closer to equal, creating a superior soundstage. The driver's seat becomes the "sweet spot" for great stereo sound. Warranty: 1 year.
Note: The Q-Forms do not come with pre-cut holes, so you must cut holes in order to install your component speakers in the enclosures. Installing the Q-Forms panel enclosures in your vehicle may require relocation of the parking brake pedal or other vehicle parts. Please enter your vehicle information or call a Sales Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to find out if this model is compatible with your vehicle.
Installation note for 1978-1991 Chevrolet and GMC trucks and SUVs: To install, remove and reattach hood latch on driver's side and air duct cover on passenger side.

They do there job speaker grilles have to be trimmed to fit
Pros: Does the job
These are only worth $35.00 tops for the pair. The directions are terrible, the fitment is even worse! I had to cut a shape 90% on the driver side. Nothing anywhere in the purchase add did it say you wont be able to use the fresh air vent. There warped, paint is terrible, and once again...they do not fit. Parking brake peddle hits it also. If you don't have a key hole saw or a die grinder......sent them back. I'm an ASE Master tech, that specializes in older vehicles not the run of the mill back yard wrench. Very disappointed.

I had concerns because what I saw online was different from what I received. But after going back to my truck and placing the the kick panel in its right place, I think everything might be good. But I have not had the time to install the panel.
This is made of quality material. However there was too much fabrication for the price. Would have been comfortable paying a lot less. For this price point there should have been no fabrication needed at all.
Great if you don't want to cut holes in you vehicle's interior, but takes a bit of room on your floor board and may impede on the travel of your parking brake. They are bit more expensive than I wanted to pay, but they look great and I couldn't find any other solution to mount my speakers. 1985 Chevy k5 Blazer
The best investment in car audio I have personally made for my 85 c10 project. Lined with sound dynamat to help with rigidness. Absolutely amazing and the look great. Like they came from factory. Staging is good also with no center channel its hardly noticed fills the cab with my favorite tunes.
Pros: Easy to install. Sound quality is awesome.
Cons: will interfere with your e-break on a 1985 c10.
Worked better for me to leave old kick panels off 87 K5 I put 6.5 pioneer in fit good
Pros: Easy install
Suppose to fit my 83 Chevy truck. I expected them for the price to replace my existing panels, but they showed up as covers to my existing ones. Not only did they not fit, they didn't completely covet the original ones, leaving the panels with two different colors of beige. Not acceptable. Crutchfield was good dealing with and I was able to return for a refund. Also, would not fit my Kicker 6 1/2" speakers. Might work OK for 6 inch speakers.
Pros: nothing in my book
Cons: expensive for covers, poor fit.
the q-forms kick panels are the best thing ive bought for my truck to date. having the 6 1/2 inch components down there in the kick panels tripled my sound quality. four stars given for price and having to trim speaker grill to make it work.
Pros: adding 6 1/2 inch speakers to an 87 pickup
I wanted to put better speakers in my 'burban and thought these would be an easy way to do it. The basic concept is sound but there are some major issues with install. The biggest problem is e-brake interference. Installed over the top of the stock kick panels and 6 1/2 speakers the pedal won't clear the speaker. I ended up removing the OEM kick panel and installing 5 1/4 speakers mounted low in the enclosure to get the clearance needed. The passenger side installed with only minor issues. The Infinity speakers I installed sound awesome but I'm not sure I would do it again. If Q-Forms would make the enclosures narrower or move the speaker mount lower these would be great.
This product is good. Sturdy, Mounting holes are in the right place. I am very pleased with the kick panels that I purchased. I get a lot of comments on how they look. The sound quality is more than fair when installed with the poly fill. I wish they made them for 60's & 70's muscle cars. The only problem is that the speaker holes are not pre drilled.
Product Overview: Q-Logic C-Series Q-Form custom kick panels are designed to hold a 2-way component speaker system consisting of a woofer up to 6-1/2" and a tweeter (up to 2" diameter). They are fabricated of durable ABS plastic, color matched to the factory interior colors, and replace the factory kick panels. The positioning and angle of the speakers provide optimum stereo imaging and staging.
No Grilles: Because no grilles are included with the Q-Forms, you must use the grilles supplied with the component system. In some cases, the grille could slightly overlap the mounting surface for the woofer. In this case the cutout can be made so any overlap occurs at the back bottom edge where it will not be visible.
Note: One of the included installation guides states that two Q-grilles are included. That is not the case for the C-series Q-Forms.
Compatibility: These Q-Forms are designed to fit select 1978-1991 Chevrolet and GMC Full-size Pickups, Blazers, Jimmys, and Suburbans.
Note: Please enter your vehicle information to verify compatibility.
Factory Colors: These kick panels match the factory Black interior trim.
Installation Overview: You will need to cut out the mounting holes in the designated areas of the plastic Q-Form. A roll of foam tape is provided for sealing the woofer in the kick panel. The tweeter can be flush or surface mounted. Giving exact mounting depths is not possible, since it will depend to some extent on the space available behind the factory kick panel. (Q-Logic advertises 4" minimum.)

Using Infinity Kappa 6.5" components in a '90 Suburban, the magnets on the woofers were a tight fit. There was not enough room to use the speaker covers because of parking brake interference. Even without the speaker covers, I have to be careful and step around the enclosure when setting my brake. Minor annoyance for awesome sound in an old truck with few other options.

makes it a little tight for ebrake pedal in my 85 chevy. Other than that they are awesome [ James Dec 06, 2016 ]
I have a 1985 Chevy k5 Blazer with an automatic transmission. The panel does come very close to the parking brake when engaged (almost touches). As far as leg room, I don't notice that the panels take up any room and I'm 6'1". [ DANIEL Dec 06, 2016 ]
