One of the most common complaints about early Z-Cars is the sound system. Z owners have been trying to find the best way to improve the sound in their Z's for a long time, usually by hacking into the factory door panels or kick panels. We have offered Rear Speaker Panels (temporarily unavailable) for many years, which add two forward-facing 6x9" speakers for a big improvement, but many want the fuller sound that comes by adding front speakers. These panels are the perfect solution! These custom Speaker Panels are thermo formed from rigid 1/8" ABS, have a "textured" satin black finish, and pre-cut holes for 5 1/4" speakers. They fit in place of your original kick panels, and require no modifications to the car (therefore if you wanted at a later date to re-install the original kick panels, they would bolt right back in). The panels are held in place using the hood release bracket & screws on the driver's side, the relay bracket & screws on the passenger side (both original kick panels also utilize these same screws). Both panels are designed to allow the speaker wiring to be run without interfering with the panel. Both panels are low profile, allowing clearance for the factory footrest and aftermarket air conditioning evaporators. This kit includes both Driver's and Passenger's side Front Speaker Panels.

These panels will require "low profile" speakers (not included). A great option is our Retrosound speakers, which fit easily into the space behind the panel (see 50-1292 in Related Items below for the speakers, or 50-1293 for a complete and DISCOUNTED kit!). Note that holes for the speaker mounting are not pre-drilled, allowing you flexibility in your choice of low profile speakers, and exactly how you want to position them. If you want to try to use speakers you already have, the Infinity speakers shown in the images (which are no longer available), are approximately 2 1/4" from mounting to the end of the magnet. Contact us if you have any questions.

Image Notes:
Bottom image shows clearance with normal aftermarket A/C installation. This kit does NOT include speakers (see Related Items below).

These panels are patterned after the original kick panels, but were not intended to be identically shaped reproductions with holes for speakers, they are custom speaker panels. You can see images of the kick panels in Related Items below.

Some early Z's, like our 71 240Z, may have additional parts that are "bolted" through the original kick panels (a small relay on the driver's side in our case). While you could simply drill a small hole in these panels to use to attach such items, we found it easier to simply relocate the relay to another nearby mounting screw. Just take a look at your kick panels first to know if you will need any minor adjustments.

Right Hand Drive Z-Cars:
Please note that all parts in this store, like these panels, unless specifically noted otherwise, were designed for Left Hand Drive Z-Cars. These panels are one part we have confirmed are not a direct fit for Right Hand Drive Z-Cars, and will require substantial modification to fit on a RHD Z-Car.
