I would also opt to do a 2-way set up in the kicks over using the factory locations for a 3-way set up. You can either use Q Forms or just use the factory 5.25" location and be a little creative on how to mount the tweeter (see Lincoln's website for one idea). I've got my Quart Q Series mounted in the kicks and they sound incredible. The soundstage is very wide and the imaging is pretty good. Even with the tweeters in the kicks I still have to attenuate them by -6dB on the MUSiCOMP crossover.

While Q Forms are built like shit and overpriced, they do offer a much cheaper alternative to custom kick panels which would be at least twice as much. Just keep in mind that Q Forms are built with regards to accomodating certain speaker sizes with general consideration givin to speaker placement. They may not offer the best imaging, but it'll sure beat the factory 3-way set up.

Whatever you do, don't put an MB Quart tweeter in the door location. Even at their lowest x-over setting they'll still be very piercing at higher volumes.

: For a 3 way setup with a 6.5 a 4 and a tweet, where would the best positioning be? Would the stock locations work ok? (I'm not an audiophile, so this doesn't matter... just lookin for better sound/volume. Also, have you seen those Q forms things? Would those be a good idea?

: Thanx in advance,
: Josh
