you think duct taping 6.5" interiors would make a difference in midbass ? like around the edges like people do for subwoofers

if you have a crappy seal yes, but its not gonna help if your door is full of holes ;)

go buy peal and seal from lowes, it will work better than duct tape, and it cost about 3 dollars more a roll and you get get 2x as much as duct tape

Might help a little, but the problem with that stuff is it's not rigid. I would use fiberglass or thin 1/4" pieces of press board/MDF.. or larger if it would fit behind the panels.

You will never seal a door totally... there will be air leaks around the window molding and there are probably drain holes in the bottom of the door.

Before I would do all that work, I would see if I could install in the kick panels instead... it's a better location for imaging/sound stage and a better enclosure, provided the speakers will fit.
