    KICK PANELS, help please

    Im looking to beef up the bass in the front of my ride, so Im putting in kick panels, I have 4" Bose speakers in the dash now (they sound like ****) so could I pull off a 4*6 or even a 6*9 speaker in the front, I like the way the Cerwin Vega 6*9 hit and Id like that sound in the front of the car!! Any ideas would help out a lot! Thanks

    I would personally use a 6.5" component set in the kicks for better imaging and if needed, and additional 6.5" midbass in the doors. I would strongly reccomend not using the 6x9's or any other square speaker in front, they can easily cause noticable break-up and limited frequency response due to thier shape.

    take it easy,

    Zane is right on the money... I may be a junior member but I have been reading about car audio for 10 years.

    I also have all of the Autosound 2000 Technical Briefs.

    The only way to move bass to the front of the vehicle is by using 6 1/2 inch or 8 inch speakers. They should not be 2-way or 3-way speakers. You'll also have to put a decent amount of wattage through them.

    Stay away from 6x9's.

    A custom kick panel may have to be used...

    Good luck,
    Andy
