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.

Q-Forms Kick Panel Enclosures reviews
I purchased a set of Qforms for my 93 Chevy truck and they fit perfectly. I purchased this set for my 2012 Accord and they fit Horrible! After cutting on them (for hours) and adding spacers, they still fit terrible. There was a bracket that came with them for relocating hood release. What A Joke!
Pros: I had medication to take after installing them.
Cons: I think I have made myself clear.

I bought this item along with a pair of 6-3/4 component speakers for my 2005 Honda Accord. The item is a bit pricey, but I went ahead and splurged on the item. One thing that anyone should be aware of is that you will have to cut out the holes yourself. Go ahead and add to the price the cost of buying a couple of hole saws, a 1-3/4 for the tweeters and a 5 inch one for the woofers and don't forget to get the hole saw arbor shank to use them with. If you don't have a drill, better hope you have some friends willing to let you borrow it for a few hours. Lucky for me I had a drill but I wasnt lucky enough to find a place that rents holes saws and the arbor. Make sure to set the drill properly or your going to snap your wrist drilling the holes. After everything was put together, they fit fine but I noticed that the tan color ones I ordered were several shades different than the tan interior of my car. Luckily they sit so low on the floor board it's not an eyesore. I hooked the speakers up to a 2 channel 60 watt amp and they hit pretty hard. Thanks to the preamp outputs on my head unit and an amp, I managed to add an extra pair of tweeters and 6-3/4 speakers. Otherwise I would have had to disconnect the door speakers I had and reroute the wire to the kick panels. I would advise anyone considering this item to factor in the cost of the extra materials you will need to hook this item up.
Pros: Enables you to add extra speakers to your system Easy install Custom look
Cons: Price Extra materials needed to drill a couple of holes Color shade was off

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. That is not the case for the C-series Q-Forms.
Compatibility: These Q-Forms are designed to fit select 2003 to 2007 Honda Accords. They match the factory Black 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-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: The factory dead pedal (foot rest) must be removed to install the driver's side Q-Form. The hood release housing must be relocated using the included bracket and hardware.
