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.

Mounting speakers requires cutting out mounting holes in the designated areas of the plastic Q-form. The tweeter can be flush or surface mounted. The tweeter on this panel is mounted low, so no interference with factory equipment (parking brake, etc) should be likely.
Giving exact mounting depths is not possible, since it will depend to some extent on the space available behind the factory kick panel; 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".
This unit allows you to mount a tweeter with a maximum diameter of 2.34" and a 3 1/2" to 5 1/4" midrange/midbass unit. The maximum frame width/diameter allowable for the midrange/bass unit is 6.3", so a few 6.5" units may fit. Make sure to check the specs/features for frame width and mounting depth of any components you sell.
