what do you guys think.... can the 6W3 be used in front doors as midbass driver? i have never ran an independent midbass speaker, only 2-way components. if this is a stupid question please take it easy on me. -thanks

These are pretty deep for their size because they are a true subwoofer, I just installed a pair in my wife's suv and these da*n things will hammer. If you have doors deep enough then sure try them out....

I can't say I would try it....

For the work you'll put into making them work, you can get a driver that will perform just as well and likely better.

Remember this is a SUBWOOFER, use it as such.

Yes it is primarily a subwoofer but seeing as how it has a usable frequency range of 30-300hz and midbass general falls somewhere around 60-275hz approx. surely it would hurt to at least try them to see how they fair especially if you already have them....

Anarchy are probably a better choice for tight, accurate midbass vs sub bass

I am using CDT M6 Subs/Mids as mid bass fill drivers in the rear doors of my WRX.

I was told the JLs are very good sounding and drop pretty low, but dont do that well IB. You basically need an enclosure for them to sound good. Again, I never heard them in a door, but my local JL shop said they have tried and the results werent that great. They said the sound like a completely different speaker in a box of some sort.
