Our take on 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.

Note: Installation requires removing and re-installing the hood release lever.
Mounting speakers requires cutting out
mounting holes in the designated areas of the plastic Q-form. The tweeter can be
flush or surface mounted, but if surface mounted make sure to allow for
clearance from obstructions such as the parking brake.
Installation tools required: hole saw (can also use air saw or keyhole saw), screwdriver
Estimated Installation time: 1.5 hours (per manufacturer)
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 .75" for the tweeter and 2.5" for the woofer/mid bass component.
You can mount a tweeter with a maximum diameter of 2-1/2" and a midrange/midbass with a diameter size ranging from 3 1/2" to 5 1/4". The maximum frame width/diameter allowable for the midrange/bass driver is 6.125", 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 sales advisor before ordering if you wish to use 6-1/2" speakers in these kick panels.
