I have a 2001 Ram 2500 quad cab diesel....right now i am running my 6.5 mids on a mdf plate in the doors and the tweeters in the stock location in the a pillers.

What i really want to do is move the 6.5 and tweet set down in the kick panels but my question is do i attempt to build my own or just buy some q forms and call it a day.

I plan on putting a pair of 6x9s i have in the classifieds probably in the doors... they dont seem to be too hot of a an item and sound great. I think they will fill out nicely and help with mid bass.

OPINIONS PLEASE!!!

Cheaper to buy Q logics if you don't have materials/tools/time. If you're looking for a project then it could be a good learning experience...

I would sound deaden the doors, put in a 6x9 component system and enjoy the better full range sound up front. I get pickup trucks in here far more than cars, and it doesn't seem like a fun job to relocate things at the kick panels and then have to worry about your legs blocking the sound.

I have a car with kicks and enjoy the equal path lengths from the kick mounted speakers...

Kicks are great Better than doors.
Once you go floor, you'll never go doors.
P1ss on the Q logics. Build them.

It is the first time around.
I'm on my 3rd set, building a pillars and sails as we speak, I'm burnt out on fiberglass.

, self made kicks will perform better than pre fab if built right.
