I typically don't come around and ask alot of questions anymore but, my midbass from my Boston pro60's is seriously lacking. I am thinking about adding some tangband 6x9s or even 6.5's but im pretty sure that I wont have enough space for a sealed in a door-pod.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Try flipping the phase (change the + and - wires around) on your passenger side midbass. Also, you will mostly likely have to deaden and seal off the doors to get any real midbass out of the door speakers.

6.5" Tang-Band "sub woofers" make for a pretty mean midbass.

The 3 most important things to worry about to get good midbass is: Instalation, instalation, instalation.

You must turn you door into a speaker cabinet.


1) Deaden the doors with lots of dampening material. SecondSkin or whatever material you can get.
2) Seal the doors to prevent bass freq's from getting to the front of the speaker which would cancel the bass.
3)Soildly mount the driver on MDF ring, panel or fiberglass reinforce to prevent the transfer of energy to the sheet metal door.
4) Use plenty of amplifier power to drive the door speakers. Head unit power is worthless. A good external amp with the crossover set around 65 - 80 Hz Highpass.

Look at some threads on how to deaden and install door speakers.

I run mine 50-135hz. Provide ample power and they will destroy a door, LOL.

This.

Could also try making door pods for your current speakers, throw lots of power to them...

I did a google shopping search for tang-band and all that came up were home speakers :confused:

'computer ninjas' came up for mpyre :crazy:

Do these things exist or are you guys just making up names :crying:

These would probably be beastly in some nice kick panel pods.

Are these better than most components?

i also have the pro 60's.. midbass *****.. almost non-existent as far as im concerned.. I have the doors all sound deadened, and have the speaker in a mini pod inside the door... love the midrange-vocals they give out... but the midbass blows

i tried to bridge em on my amp... they didnt even get louder, but yet they started to cut out...............??????????

If you really want some midbass output, run a lower power 8-10" shallow sub/woofer in you doors. They generally have less mms, so are more efficient, have better transient respoonse, and therefore have an easier time reproducing midbass than normal subs. They'll also be fairly efficient as well...at least more than a bigger coiled, higher xmax woofer.

here are couple to think about


Dayton RS225-4 , if you can make the room for a 8inch
Dayton RS180-4 again if you can make the room for a 7 inch

or
Peerless SLS 6.5
or
Morel CAW638 6
