anybody know of a good place (hopefully in gta unless they have online store) to get custom kick panels. I know most audio shops may do but wondering if anyone knows of any places they have used thatthey recomend. Anyone have a rough idea what I should be looking for as far as cost?

Thanks

Key word being "starting" - how do you want them to sound ??
$800 seems to be in-line with a really nice good quality set of kickpods. Thats only a day and a half of labour and some materials at most shop rates - usually our pods range from $600-$1000, again depending on the car and finish !! We dont make basic kick pods - by basic, I mean a wooden oval that happens to mount in the kick panel. We make a proper "enclosure", sometimes even ported if we have the room to do so. Listen to most house speakers (good ones) and most of them are ported - you'll get a bit more mid-bass from them - not always able to do in some cars though.

Good luck !!

Try 20hz, they are great....but sometimes very busy...however this time of year you might get lucky....you're probably looking in the 600 price range there...

Also Perfect Tones in Milton. They built me a set BEFORE they had their shop and it ran about 300....probably a bit more now, but still decent


Cant go wrong either place, in my experience.
