I WANT MIDBASS lol im looking for great midbass. first off just to let you guys know i will be dynamating the doors. 2 layers outside 1 behind and 2 under the plastic. and maybe the plastic too. AND i will be making a pod in the door that is able to hold either 2 6.5 or 1 8".

SOOOOO i would prefer to run 2 way but if i need to go 3 i guess i could... i wont run active on this one till later on when i have more cash for amps and blah blah blah.

i would say around 800$ would be all i can have for front speakers. and since i cant really audition some good stuff here i will have to put my trust in you guys lol.

SOOO for vendors if you have and idea PM me with a quote on what might work. ( also i like laid back speakers more :P )

i was thinking of using tang band stuff but they mostly need an enclosure. ( witch i cant do in the door lol ) JL has the 8" midbass but then i would have to make it 3 way since it only does from 50-500hz

anyway enough of talk right now lol sorry for the long post ill awnser to any Q's

A good midbase is the pioneer PRS set. I have the 5 1\4 inch in small sealed (well actually semi vented) kick pannels and I actualy prefer to xover them into the midbase region over the much acclaimed peerless SLS 8's that are residing in my doors.

I have used the daytons RS 8's and they were pretty good and wen decently high (maybe 1khz) but I didn't feel they went high enough to go well with any tweet I had on hand.

my plan was to get 8" or 2 6" for midbass and run a 4" component set on dash in a fiberglass pod.

i dont know if this is just a crazy idea lol. and having midbass in the doors and highs on dash will it sound "off" as of imaging?

If you have room for the dual 6" combination, that is a ideal way to go. With the deal on the MB Quart PVI216 components right now ($300pr), add the PVI164 add a midbass driver to the set. MB Quart -- Home Audio, Car Audio, and Nautic Audio for info on the speakers. I have one pair (maybe two) left of these speakers at this price and being at home right now am unsure of the price of the add a midbass option.

If you want real midbass you cannot replace 3-ways. 2-way system by design will either be 50/50 on midbass and midrange or the ratio can go either way, but you will never have 100% of both in one speaker. You can get great results with a very good speaker, but that could be costly. It is hard for one speaker to cover a really wide freq range, especially if you want to cross HPF low at around 50-60hz, then your midrange will suffer. But I think you know that already. So, yeah, that 4" set with a dedicated midbass will be great.

And to answer your other question, try keeping the midrange and tweets as close as possible, midbass could be sitting lower. Semi-active is your way to go. Passive on tweets and 4" speakers on one amp, and dedicate one amp for the midbass speakers, which should be designed for midbass duty.

I have tried it that way to, but I prefer to have my PRS mids playing down to 80hz and play up to 2.5khz. I prefer their punch and crispness to the 8inch's midbase.

My "midbase" door speakers are actually playing 80hz down so they are really my subs right now.
