Q-Forms Kick Panel Enclosures
Install 6-1/2" components in your 1993-99 BMW 3-Series 2-Door (coupe and convertible) (1993-1994 light gray)
Our take on the Q-Forms Kick Panel Enclosures by Crutchfield's Leigh Schoettinger
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 a Sales Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to find out if this model is compatible with your vehicle.
Installation note for 1993-1999 BMW 3 Series 2-door (Coupe and Convertible): Installation requires removing and re-installing hood release lever. Will only work in the 2-door model.
What's in the Box:

- Two 6"x8" Polyfil pads

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 directly 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 2 Q-grilles are included. That is not the case for the C-series Q-Forms.
Compatibility: These Q-Forms are designed to fit select 1993-1999 BMW 3 Series 2 Door Coupes and Convertibles (except for 318ti). This includes 318i, 318is, 323i, 325i, 325is, 328i, and 328is. The Q-Forms do not fit the 4-door models. Note: For each specific vehicle, please verify compatibility with the Crutchfield Car Selector.
Factory Colors: These kick panels match the factory Light Gray interior trim. The Q-Forms are also available in Blue, Light Tan, Black, and Tan.
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.
