View Full Version : Will my music be missing a lot of frequencies?

I have a 15" Mag I plan to put in the trunk, it is a SBL^2 sub so from what I hear it will not play the higher frequencies well at all.

I cant only fit 5.25" in my doors but I think the stock location is so nice I have to keep it without kicks. I plan on following the sound deadening tutorial in the sticky when I get around to installing.

I listen to a lot of metal with fast kick drums, the midbass is what plays most of that and with low end 5.25" you cant get a lot of midbass can you? I was thinking CDT EF51s but it seems like people always sell them fast for something else.

What would be the better choice, spending more money on better comps (up to about 250 bucks prolly) or more sound deadening in the doors? Recommendations for 5.25" midbass?

Deaden the doors and then spend as much as you can on components. Honestly most peoples problem with matching a sub to components is people have their sub turned up way too high and expect their components to blend regardless.

Sure you can. It all comes down to install.

Audiolife on here has the 5.25" Memphis Msync components (http://www.woofersetc.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=product.display&Product_ID=1224) and their midbass is impressive. Not just "for their size"...but downright impressive.

Memphis makes solid equipment, and the M-Class components keeps the tradition.
