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 because that's one of the best ways to get a concert-quality stereo image. But why pay hundreds of dollars to an installer? Mount your 5-1/4" components in Q-Logic's Q-Forms, which deliver competition-quality imaging without the expensive custom installation work.
With Q-Forms, each speaker is located and angled to maximize sound quality. The theory is that the distance between your ears and each of the speakers should be equal. With your speakers in the kick panels, it's like sitting in that "sweet spot" at a concert or right between your home speakers.
All the available colors for the Q-Forms that fit your vehicle are listed here. Pick the color that matches your interior. If there is no match for your vehicle, that means Q-Forms are not available for it.

More details on the Q-Forms Kick Panel Enclosures
-Installation of the driver's side Q-form requires relocating the hood release handle and cable. Prior to the installation of the driver's side Q-form, the release handle must be removed from the driver's side kickpanel location, then mounted upside down to the right of the fuse block inside the vehicle (on driver's side of vehicle). The installation instructions cover this procedure step-by-step.
-Check install guide for application; do not sell if it does not appear in install guide!
-The light gray color of these Q-forms matches the interior color of 94'-96' Ford F-150, F-250 and F-350 Ford trucks equipped with light gray interiors.
-This unit allows you to mount a tweeter (with a maximum diameter of 2-1/2 inches) and a 3-1/2" to 5-1/4" midrange/midbass speaker. The maximum frame width/diameter allowable for the midrange/bass speaker is 6.125", so a few 6-1/2" speakers may fit. Make sure to check the frame width and mounting depth of any components to be used with these panels. Giving exact mounting depths is not possible, since it will depend to some extent on the contour of the space available behind the factory kickpanel; however, the minimum flush mount depth for the tweeter is .75" and 2.5" for the woofer/mid bass component. Per Ai Research, the maximum allowable speaker depth is 4".
- Color matched to interior of your vehicle.
- Molded in one piece for factory appearance.
- Speakers positioned and angled for optimum stereo staging and imaging.
- Equalized path lengths reduce right/left volume bias.
-Installation Tools Required: hole saw (can also use air saw or keyhole saw), drill, screwdriver.
-Estimated Installation Time: 1.5 hours (per manufacturer)
-These Q-forms are installed using the original kickpanel hardware and the provided
screws and nylon spacer.
-Mounting speakers requires cutting out mounting holes in the designated areas of the plastic Q-form. Tweeters may be flush or surface mounted, but, if surface mounting, make sure to allow for clearance from obstructions such as the parking brake.
