View Full Version : How about isobaric mids ?????

I am thinking about doing an intresting component set, .....

I know if you isobarically load two speakers into the same enclosure. From what I understand, when you do this, you effectively double the volume of an enclosure. The midbass response should also be much stronger. I have a 2004 Ford F-150. I just ordered an extra set of door panels really cheap from Ebay.

My idea is to get two 8 ohm speakers for each door panel between 4 and 5 inches. Wire them so they presents as 4 ohms to my clif designs cross overs which are crossed at 3500. Maybe some Dayton DA135-8 5-1/4" ALUMINUM CONE WOOFER.

What do you guys think??

you never want to invert any mid of any sorts...any and all motor and suspension noise would be heard...plus unless they do midbass only "150HZ and lower" you will get a diffused sound from lower vocals etc from the interaction of the basket...

For one thing, it will be at least 3db less efficient (maybe even less?), so your mid-bass volume will be down, right out of the gate.

Plus, I can imagine massive standing waves... they should locate like Britney Spears at a Bachelor party.
