check crutchfield.com for the kick panels. im sure they make they for the 07's. and not sure if u would need they fiberglass or not. wouldnt be a bad idea

p.s.- i know that u have to bend the e-brake pedal so the driver's side kick panel will fit.

The kick panel part numbers show that they fit up to 2001 or 2000, but I think they actually fit all years of the new gen... anyone confirm that?

Good luck on the passenger side of 2004~2007. There is a bunch of electronics under that bulging PS kick panel. If the panel could be extended far enough to accommodate a speaker, a good portion of the footwell would be gone.

the speakers im looking to get for the kick pannels are slim speakers. and have a very small mounting depth...
if anything, ill make a speaker pod over the transmission hump with the components... woould having the speakers mounted there have any ill affects on the sound ?

so no ill affects?
would it be better to have the speakers pointing opposite ways 1 toward the driver and 1 toward the passenger? or just straight back, up, angled up, ect ect...

for best possible sound point 1 toward the driver and 1 toward the passanger. midrange might get harsh but other than that i see no ill effects. i personally would skip the kick panel and tranny hump speakers and just go for an in dash center channel speaker. it would be a cleaner install and u wouldnt have to make anything.

the 3 way component would be sweet. clarion makes a center channel speaker that is half din size so it should fit above a din sized stereo in our trucks. there are a couple of guys on here that got a double din unit to fit in the dash and that would be cool cuz u can get alpine's din sized center on top of a din sized head unit. but if u got the time and u want something unique then i say go for it. 1 8" 6.5" and a tweeter in the door or whatever.

ya well my friend said his friend pat, who i am an aquiantence(sp) with will fiber glass my doors for abour 400bux for the pair... so im going to go that route.
if i can still get a deal on focal speakers, i am going to get the K2 series 6.5 componets with the 6.5 woofer, and run 2 JL 300/2 amps if my boss can pull some strings with stereo ppl he knows
but if the plan with focal doesnt work ill most likely run 2 sets of 6.5 components or 1 6.5 and a 5.25... so hopefully ill have the doors fiberglassed after spring break

deffinately, once i get ahold of him and agree on a design and such, it should only take him about 2-3days start to finish and then probally have to send the pannels to my buddy in louisiana to have em covered.
