Default Kickpanel Speakers!

Anybody have 'em? I'd like to get some, but their a bit pricey.

Not to mention that you would have to run an amp just to power those 2 speakers.

If you don't get enough sound out of the 4 speakers locations, I would suggest you add a set of component speakers in the front. That will give you a separation of your mid and highs. Then add a sub.

I've seen it done once before where the person heated the hell out of his e-brake, and threw in a couple of bends to make it work. If it were me, I'd rather save some money and build a small box for an 8" sub for the back of the cab.

More than likely be a mid-bass speaker down there for extreme 'frontal' imaging.

I would have to agree components would be best bang for the buck.

I have the Alpine SPR-17S I just have the one sub in my center console though.

I mounted the tweeters on the door panel

Something like that by my feet would drive me nuts though.
