I have seen them on line at least one place. They have 2-way coaxial speakers and replace the stock kick panels. Does anyone know what the quality of the speakers is like? How well do they fit? Do you retain the vent function? Where can I get them at the best price?

Thanks, Joel

kickpanel quality is good. speaker quality is crap. Fit is good. vent works, but not as well as stock (speaker blocks some airflow). No idea who is cheaper. start at custom autosound website and check each of the dealers listed.

I didn't see a control knob in the photos I saw. How is the vent activated?

Looks like they offer a Pioneer Speaker upgrade. Is their quality OK?

Thanks, Joel

They are OK, not great. My interior guy covered the whole panel with speaker cloth so they aren't so visible.

If I had it to do all over again, I probably wouldn't even both with these kick panel speakers.

They are kind of a pain to work around when you need access to fuse block, dimmer switch, parking brake, etc.

No more vents for me, blocked them off. If I want fresh air, I drop the top...

On my 70 kickpanels the vent is opened and closed with a wingnut. I just replaced the passenger speaker, the one that came installed in the kickpanel blew already. No amp or extra power, just wired into the deck/reciever. I went with a deeper coned speaker I had sitting on the shelf. It fit in the kickpanel hole with a few mods. Oh I have only had the speakers in for 5 months.
