    Default Q Logic kick panel enclosure?

    Hey Folks,

    I was just curious if anyone had ever tried to modify a Q Logic kick panel speaker enclosure for the 240 Z...

    I could make my own... But I'm feeling a bit lazy, and I'm hoping I could just buy something pre-made, and just modify it to fit the car kick panel area..

    Thanks

    Phil

    Hey Guy's,

    Here is the Q Logic kick panel enclosure I'm sort of looking at..

    Universal Fit, Speaker Pod, Component Speaker Kick Panel [QL-U5001] - $109.99 : Q-Logic Direct, Car Audio Speaker and Subwoofer Enclosures

    Unfortunately they don't make a enclosure for our car any more because the car is too old.... Too bad I was thinking about buying a pair and seeing if they could be modified to fit in the foot well / kick panel area.. unfortunately the picture on the website isn't very good.. and I can't get a very good idea of the depth, and shape of the over all enclosure to see if some minor modification would let it be useable in the foot well.

    Steve, thanks for the link on the low profile speaker pod..... I sort of have something like it already, that I made a while back.... the problem with it is that the speaker is pointed at my feet, so not much of the sound is being direct up into the passenger cabin...

    The nice thing about the Q Logic enclosures is that the speakers are angled upwards so more of the sound is directed up in to the passenger area, and not at my feet

    I'm contemplating on just making my own enclosure... but that means I need to make a form for the speaker to fit, and then I need to cover it with fiberglass, and then covered to match the interior... not hard to do.. time consuming... and I'm just feeling kinda of lazy right now...

    You don't have a second set of ears on your legs? What kind of freak are you?

    You might consider getting the ones in the link I provided and using heat to point them upward some. It might work.

    I saw in the post for those slim speaker pods that you got a pair Steve, How do you like them? I might give those a try...

    Thanks
