    Put some painters tape down on the mounting surface, then adhere the kick onto the tape (spray adhesive, gorilla glue, epoxy, etc.) Should stay on pretty tight, and will be removable.

    not 100% sure what you mean but to make a shape use fleece or ne material then as your strenght you use fiberglass mat/cloth with resin. hope that helps

    yes, you can use a shirt but a fleece type material will be much stronger

    the thinner the material, the less resin it will hold, and will not be as strong. i used a shirt, but it was a fleece-y type shirt.

    You can use a shirt, you'll just have to use a few more layers of mat/cloth over the top of it to give it some stability.

    Re: The newbie guide to custom kick panels

    i have never had any experience (or even a chance to hear speakers in kickpanels) so i have a few questions.

    Wouldn't your legs seem to "block" the sound from the speaker in the left kick panel. It just seems like your leg would be in the way.

    Considering that a kickpael is an enclosure, would it give you better midbass response, like around 80 hz or so?

    Would the left kick panel have to be pointed up more toward the drivers seat than the righ one?

    Can the difference in air volume of the 2 kicks give a different sound from the speakers?

    thanks for any help...
