Front Speaker Kick Panels

VW Speaker Kick Panels Our Front Speaker Kick Panels are made of heavy-duty fiberglass to resist vibration noise associated with cheap plastic panels. The thick fiberglass aids in securely mounting the speakers to the kick panel as well as fastening them to the front side kick panel area of the car.

These VW Speaker Kick Panels create a cavity to allow you to mount your speakers without having to cut into the metal area of the car.

Standard Speaker Kick Panels can accept 5 1/4 inch round speakers as well as many 6 inch speakers with shallow magnets. We also over Max Front Speaker Kick Panels which provide 4 - 5 Inches of speaker housing space behind kick panel and can accept 6.25" inch round speakers as well as many 6 inch speakers with shallow magnets.

These panels direct music slightly upward and inward in the car to provide optimum sound quality. The panels are finished in black so that they can be placed either under or on top of an existing carpet kit. They will not impede any foot movement.

We offer front speaker kick panels for the VW Bug, Super Beetle, Karmann Ghia, and Type 3.

VW Speaker Panel Installation Instructions

VW Speaker Panel Installation Instructions

Fits up to 7" diameter speakers (or 5 ½" with 1" tweeters, etc.) Depending on which car you have, there will be 4" to 5" of space behind the Speaker Panel.

Really Easy Instructions

You'll need:

VW Kick Panel Installation
  1. 40 grit sandpaper
  2. Jigsaw with a fine blade
  3. Electric drill with 1/8" bit
  4. Phillips screwdriver (or drill with phillips screwdriver bit)
  5. Template for your speaker (usually comes with your system)
  6. Pieces of cardboard to practice on
  7. 8 Sheet metal screws.


1) Decide whether you will mount Speaker Panels over or under existing or new carpet, then;

2) Pre-fit the Speaker Panel up against your kick panel area above the heater channel. Some trimming may be required simply by using sandpaper. We recommend putting insulation, carpet or some type of pad behind the speaker, up against the metal kick panel area of your car. This makes your system "sound" better.

3) Once you are satisfied with the fitting of the speaker panel and its ready to install, you can now insert your speakers:

First, cut out the hole using the template, or practice on cardboard. If you drill the hole too big, then you'll have to buy another set and start over again. It is best to cut out the hole with the jigsaw, smaller than the template shows, them use sandpaper to make your speaker fit perfectly.

Mount your speakers, tweeter, etc. into the Speaker Panel.

4) Now, drill 4 holes, one at each comer using a drill with 1/8" bit. Hold the panel exactly where you previously pre-fit, and drill thru the panel and the metal kick panel of your car. Then screw the 4 screws into both, with a screwdriver (or drill with phillips screwdriver bit). Note: Bonding or attaching the speaker panel to your kick panel area without screws, will not allow access to your speaker, if you ever need to get to it. Carpet over if you choose.

Remember, if you have any questions, call us. We are happy to assist you!
