Smile Need advice for underseat bass/midbass



I am getting a JBL Ms-8 to integrate my VW RCD 310 system that came with the polo. active front comps and rear coax on doors.

My question is which among these two will be the best to put under both front seats. i want it to play the midbass too as i like really warm and full sound rather than thin and boomy.

i was thinking of having a 300hz active crossover from the Ms-8 to the subs. the pioneer's response is 30-1500hz while the kicker is 25-350hz.

I love a good punchy beat (i listen to house/trance mostly and sometimes slow rock) but im not a basshead anymore like with the hip hop songs.

Which would u ppl recommend? new suggestions are welcome.

What kind of air space do you have under the seat?

I'm going to assume not much so I suggest upgraded front speakers and a pair of bass shakers under the seat. Could look at a Maxx Bass processor for the fronts as well.

i wouldnt suggest a sub at all for that application ( like bmw under seat subs )
the hassle in my opinion is a waste compared to the amount of output youll receive..
Id HIGHLY suggest upgrading your front components to compensate for not having or running a sub.
For example i ran my hertz MLK165 components all the way down to 40hz NO PROBLEM in the stock doors in a huge cabin in my nissan altima 3.5se and many people were tricked in thinking i had a small sub! even though i ran subless for a long time. if you find a higher quality set of components you almost dont need to have a sub depending on your vehicle and requirements.

If you aren't a 'basshead' and want some real nice punch, I'd definitely recommend some bass shakers.
-More bass perceived without skewing the balance of your system
-easier to install
-cheaper
