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.
Installation Note for the 1997-99 Dodge Dakota:

More details on the Q-Forms Kick Panel Enclosures
Compatibility: These Q-Forms kick panels are designed to fit your 1997-99 Dodge Dakota. The black color is matched to the black interior of the 1997-99 Dodge Dakota.
Optimum Imaging: With Q-Forms kick panels, the speakers are positioned so they are equidistant from your ears, putting you in the "sweet" spot.
- Color matched to the interior of your vehicle
- Molded in one piece for a factory appearance
- Speakers positioned and angled for optimum stereo staging and imaging
- Equalized path lengths reduce right/left volume bias
Modify Parking Brake Pedal: Using two crescent wrenches, you need to carefully bend the brake pedal arm so the pedal pad is relocated approximately 3/4" to the right.
Compatible Speaker Sizes: You can mount a tweeter with a maximum diameter of 2-1/2". The midrange/midbass section of the Q-Forms is made to accept speaker sizes ranging from 3-1/2" to 5-1/4". The maximum frame width/diameter allowable for the midrange/bass driver is 6-1/8", so a few 6-1/2" units may fit. Our database contains information relating to cutout requirements, frame width, and mounting depth for all of our speakers, so please check with a Crutchfield Product Advisor before ordering if you wish to use 6-1/2" speakers in these kick panels.
Tweeter Mounting: The tweeters can be flush or surface mounted. If they are surface mounted, make sure to allow for clearance from obstructions such as the parking brake.
Allowable Speaker Mounting Depths: Giving exact mounting depths is not possible since it will depend to some extent on the space available behind the factory kick panel, which can vary; however, the minimum flush mount depth is 3/4" for the tweeter and 2-1/2" for the woofer/mid bass component.
Hole Cutting Required: Mounting speakers requires cutting the Q-Forms plastic. The Q-Forms do not come with precut holes, so holes must be cut to fit the speakers you choose to install in the Q-Forms. If you decide to surface mount tweeters to the Q-Forms, the only holes that must be cut are the ones for the midrange/midbass drivers. If you want to flush mount tweeters to the Q-Forms, holes must be cut for the tweeters and midrange/midbass drivers.
