Anyone remember these Fosgate Power mids from the 90's?

Anyone remember these Fosgate Power mids from the 90's?

DUKK or any of the guys here that know old school gear, do you remember these Power mids? I found t/s parameters for them, considering building fully sealed pods for my doors for these. Any opinions on this, or should I just run them using the interior of the door as the enclosure?: Borrowed photos:

Sold a few sets back in the day. The Audiophiles were a little smoother but these took the power. I built a 300zx for a customer with these in the doors and waveguides under the dash (and 4 Power 10s in a bandpass in the hatch) and it sounded decent.

See what the TS say but I would probably try them free air in the door first.

I had a pair of these in an 87 Jetta back in the day, along with a pair of 2 way 3.5" and 2 power 12's in a bandpass. Poor trunk lid.

It sounded good at the time. I still had them a year ago and recently installed them in a civic. However I sold them and purchase a pair of JL Audio 5.25 and they sound way smoother. But they can't handle the power quite the same. But I'm getting old and don't drive everywhere with the volume -2 from wide open anymore. Could be that the 20 year old cones weren't structurally as sound as they once were. idk.
