Get a shop to build you some kicks... youll end up with better results for similar money.

Those Qlogics are junk.

Q-Logic is distributed in Canada by Automobility / Jestar. Call them at (514)-745-8030, they will point you in the direction of a distributor in your area, they work fine, they are a little weak but can be strengthened by adding a layer of fibreglass to the backside of them.

The Qlogics have got to be cheaper than a custom build....unless you do it yourself. As you can see from the image they look good, untill you see the slight colour difference and feel the flimsy construction (see above). But Qlogic products consistently exceed expectations for the money. A custom build should sound better due to voicing and attention to detail and should look like original equipment or like a custom item.

Johnvroom....
Q Forms up here are gonna run ya around 200 easy. Plus you MAY have to deaden, plus you MAY have to repaint, plus they will not fit a 6.5" midbass (6 1/8" ios the largest, they state on their site)

I got a pair of really nice, heavy, fibreglass kicks made for 250, and I am sure one could shop around on that price, and compared to the Qforms, which most shops have to special order (and therefore want you to buy beforehand), I think that the fairly small amount of money is well spent.

plus, Rob seems to want to set up quite a nice front stage, so why cop out on the extra 50 bucks now?

as most of the more knowledgable guys around here say, again and again, it is 'all in the install'.

Like I asked before...look at the pic !
Does 10cm really make that much of a difference in sound ? The kickpanels are so close to the door speakers.........

Ideal speaker placement (I am not saying that the Q-Logic product is ideal) is the first and foremost important factor in obtaining great sound. Yes, 10 cm can make a huge difference in some cases. Most people spend way too much time, effort and money chosing audio components when, in fact, proper installation and speaker placement are the main determining factors in achieving the best that a speaker can deliver.

Buff, I defended the Qlogic only due to price, if there is no price advantage in Canada for goodness sake get a custom install.

X2, I'll have to agree.

To get the respect from members of this forum, have your own kicks built. [img]tongue.gif[/img]
