    Back in the day, I had an 83 Cutlass that I had some MBQuartz put in the door that required kickpanels. I think they only charged me like 200 for the install. Granted, these were just wooden, carpeted kick panels (looked decent though), not some custom formed fiberglass - but if you check around, it's really not all that bad.

    So if I wanted to go that route 200-300 would be the price .......not too bad.
    Will they sound better than adding the adapter do you think? Since it has more cubic ft to work with?

    Yeah, you'd be looking at either cutting the hole in the door larger, or using some sort of "adaptor" - but that would end up looking weird. Actually, I'm not even sure that would work well because the back of your speaker would be pushing up against plastic, and you might end up with some adverse "port noise" effects from it.

    I'd call around and find out a real cost of the kick panels / door panels. There are enough aftermarket options out there, it should keep the cost down.
