If you are expecting to get some bass out of those, you are kidding yourself. The Q-logic kickpanels (without heavily modifying them) are basically only good for midrange and higher frequencies. I used Q-logic kickpanels in the Cavalier I used to have and I had 5.25" CDT speakers as well, absolutely no bass but the midrange was okay (I had them on a HP around 300HZ). I had to go with a 3-way system with midbass drivers in the doors. If you are wondering I will probably not buy CDT audio speakers again, they are WAY overpriced for the performance you get out of them. Another problem with Q-logic kickpanels is they have the tweeters pointing towards the the headunit instead of more towards the headrests.

That's exactly what I did. Q-logic panels suck but if you have some extra resin and fiberglass knock you're self out. I used them for midrange and they sound great.

feel free to use them as a mold for some quality FG kicks. i would do different tweeter aiming also. you need airspace. depending on the vehicle you may be able to carve out a cavity in the kick.

this is what i did to make more room in my kicks:







i know "thinmat" is cheap. i had it to use up, it still seals and does lower panel resonance. Second Skin is in the near future. not sure where the mids are going yet.

maybe if you did this behind some reinforced q-logic panels you could get better low end response. FYI - i'll be venting my midbass outside via AP.

don't do this if you want to compete and stay out of MODEX.
