Those speakers in the kick panels are 5.25'' MB Quarts QM130.03KX (I think that is the name).

Actually, the way I made those kick panels is I simply used the grill and mounting ring that was supplied with the MB Quarts. I traced around the outside of the mounting ring, and then cut a circle in the center of the kick panel. I used some of those door edge protecting strips (get them at Wallmart) and lined the inside of the hole. I then assembled the grill and mounting ring together (did some modifying to place the grill deeper into ring). I simply slid the assembled ring/grill into the circle I made. I then glued around the edges of the rubber strip. Simple really. Its the only setup I could devise that would not cause clearance problems with the glove box when you open it. It rubs a tiny bit, but I should be able to eliminate it by adjusting the glove box over some. To hold the quarter panel in place better, I screwed a metal screw into one of the holes that are below the mounting place for the 5.25'' speaker. It stays in place now. Next time I get the digital camera out, I'll snap some closer pics of the panel and post (thanks for the webspace BTW Brandon).

Thanks for the compliments :) Carpet is new, thats why it looks so clean in the pic. Its VERY hard keeping an anthracite carpet clean though...

It looks a lot nicer than stock. Do you have any details on the install? Your car is super clean dude :^)
