1971 VW Super Beetle - Speaker Kick Panels Installation:

Video Overview:

Speaker Kick Panels are our favorite way to mount front speakers in Vintage VWs. The fiberglass panels are simple to install and are offered for Standard Beetles, Super Beetles, Karmann Ghias and Type 3 models. To help improve the sound of our speakers we also installed HushMat Wave Breakers to prevent back wave distortion. Follow along as our tech installs a set of Fiberglass Speaker Kick Panels and a pair of Kicker KS Series, 6.5” Speakers in our 1971 Super Beetle Restoration.
