About the Q-Forms Kick Panel Enclosures
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. Please enter your vehicle information or call an Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to find out if this model is compatible with your vehicle.
Installation note for select 1978-1987 General Motors vehicles: Installation requires bending parking brake 1-1/2" to the right. If vehicle is equipped with an engine computer module behind passenger kick panel, computer must be relocated under passenger floorboard carpet and covered with the supplied plastic computer module housing.

Q-Forms Kick Panel Enclosures reviews
Works great just had to modified a little bit to work better but looks good painted

Got these in my 81 El Camino. First, Crutchfield told me the speakers I got would fit....They fit, but without the grills on! Had to modify that. The color was off. The part that wraps around door wasn't there. It just sits flat with no seal. The parking brake was easy to bend, but if you have a clutch, they won't work. I lucked out on that. They sound good, and was the only option without cutting holes in my doors, so they do work.
Pros: They kinda do what they are for.
Cons: Way too expensive, color was off, flabby, doesn't have support, have to bend e brake, 6 1/2's won't work with the grills. Since Qlogic has the patent on this product, they've got you the with price. At that price, ya think they would build them right.

More details on the Q-Forms Kick Panel Enclosures
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, but that is not the case.
Compatibility: These Q-Forms are designed to fit select 1978-1988 Buick Regal and Grand National, Chevrolet El Camino and Monte Carlo, GMC Caballero, Oldsmobile Cutlass, and Pontiac Grand Prix models.
Note: Please enter your vehicle information to verify compatibility.
Factory Colors: These kick panels match the factory Medium Dark Gray 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.)
Modifications: Installing this Q-Form requires two modifications to the vehicle. You will need to use two crescent wrenches and bend the parking brake pedal arm so that the pedal pad is relocated approximately 1.5" to the right. If your vehicle is equipped with an engine computer in the passenger side kick panel, you will need to relocate it under the passenger floor board carpet using the plastic housing provided.
