much better than using the factory locations yes, but for the price, you could get better ones hand made from fiberglass instead of the Qform plastic jobs they sell on crutchfield for 200 smackers per pair.
i was going to get them for 130 off sounddomain. I was at a local shop and i think they said they wanted about 300 or so for a custom enclosure. I was told if i fill in the back of them (the q logic ones) with dynamat they should work pretty good. I was just making sure i didnt buy a complete piece of sh!t for my front. Currently im only running 1" infinity kappa tweeters up front, and my 6x9 in back.
i have kick panels, they cost me $327, and that was for everything. making, installing them, speakers, wireing, connections....all i had to do is tune everything. (3 ways, so they put the 6.5 in the doors too.)
had some made at hifi buys about 2-3 years ago, they were $350 just for the panels, no wireing or connections.
thanks. that was kinda what i was expecting. Ill probably stick with these q logic one for less than half the price. If i completely hate them, then atleast i didnt spend too much and opt for some fiberglass ones, but i think they'll work out okay.If anyone can think of and find anything better for around $200 let me know.
