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. 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 an Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to find out if this model is compatible with your vehicle.

Q-Forms Kick Panel Enclosures reviews
Bought these because I had a pair 10 yrs ago for a different vehicle and they were real solid, molded, sealed enclosures that fit well. These fit real well but that is it. I had a pair of JL C5 3 way set's at first with the 4" loaded in these (6 !/2's in doors, tweets in dash) and installed in them in short order. I should have gone with my instincts though along with first impressions. These are not solid, in fact they are quite flimsy, have no back (supplied with a $.50 worth of fiber backing)- my experience suggested that they would have too much flex which may damage the driver under high power and drastically affect their sound quality. At 1st I thought maybe the 4"s did not have enough power rating (1 blew within days even though I was not near the rated pwr.). I sent the 3 ways back and exchanged for a pair of C5 5 1/4's and put 8's in the doors. Still the 5 1/4's sounded crappy so I fabricated new Kicks out of fiberglass and it was time well spent for the system came alive! Anyway $180 out on a couple of pieces of cheeap stamped thin plastic sheets later I conclude that if you want great sound you will have to take the time and build your own kicks or have your local shop handle it for you. I thought I would have saved some time (for this company used to sell great kicks in the past) but was wrong and it cost me! If you just need a place to put a driver powered by deck power than by all means these will suffice; however if you are an audiophile like me- Avoid these
Pros: Fit perfect Install easilly
Cons: cheap and flimsy Provided grills are a joke Expensive for not being an enclosure

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.
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 2002-2009 Buick Rainier, Chevrolet Trailblazer, GMC Envoy, and Oldsmobile Bravada models. These kick panels match the factory Light Gray interior trim.
Note: Please enter your vehicle information to verify compatibility.
Installation Overview: You will need to cut out the mounting holes in the designated areas of the plastic Q-Forms. 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.)
