Awesome work. You have some great projects all over DIY.

I like the foam as an alternative to wrapping and glassing. I might have to try it.

Thanks

I hate 'volcano' boxes..... I'm pro-foam.

Sir, please allow me to give a question for you :
- Is it possible to get a good sound stage with kick panel?

I love the way you built the kickpanel.

But my problem, my car on right hand drive.
So the gas pedal on the right side, and the space is not big enough.
But I will try..

Thank you.

Well, the stage will never be too high :D

I'm really not a serious SQ guy - I like the idea, but I just mess around. No training, no SQ cars in my area, nothing...... I'm building my rigs up for SQ in hopes to learn a lot more by trial and error. I just talk to the pros as I go to make sure I don't do anything dumb.

I have heard some nice soundstages from the kicks; no doubt it is definitely possible. Main thing is equidistant path length, and they're much more solid than in a door panel.

It is possible to put them in a RHD, but even more of a challenge.

Wow, very fast response.
I really appreciate it.

I would like to thank you for your fast response.
I will try to put Audio Technology 5" drivers on my kickpanel.

To combine with my Audio Technology 8" drivers on doorpanel, HLCD Stevens Audio and RAAL tweeters.

You have built your kickpanel like a pro, Sir.
Congratulation!

You should make some video tutorials on your methods.
Funny you should mention that.....

I made one serious one a couple years ago, and wasn't happy with it - it was my old temporary location, didn't have a good camera, lacked editing skill, the list goes on.

The remodel (again) is underway, and when I'm done videos are on the top of my list. a few months and I'll have something.

Wow. Silk purse out of a sow's ear. That's a lot of pretty out of ugly. Foam requires a diligent and skilled handler. Kudos!

Sorry to bump an old thread, but I am very interested in you foam method. I want to get a more natural curve that works with my interior and this is the ticket. Can you tell me what kind of foam that is and where I could find some? Also, in my application, I would have to remove it. Is there a way to dissolve the foam so that it leaves a void behind it?
