View Full Version : Midbass Driver
09-02-2004, 11:32 PM
I recently got some of my stolen stuff back and since I already have my subs I was thinking about using a 10" Comp VR as a midbass driver. I was also contemplating the Koda 8, but I'd only be able to send that 75w. Any advice? Or anybody know how well the Comp VR performs as a midbass driver?

Oh yea, if I used the Koda 8, I'd have it positioned between my seats and it would need to be able to keep up with dual Tempests...

I hope your signature is a joke, because otherwise I would suggest upgrading your front stage before adding a midbass.
The Koda 8"s will easily keep up with the Tempests. I dont think you have anything to worry about there. The Koda is much better designed for use as a midbass driver, because of it high frequency extension, but also makes an excellent subwoofer as well. Comparing it to a RE 8" well again, it is designed for use as a subwoofer, but requires slightly less enclosure volume than the Koda.
I oppose the use of a 10" as a midbass, especially when its a purpose-built subwoofer, as the CompVR is.

Kodas are the best

You are right in so many ways it should be wrong...

Midbass is in stereo. You would need two of them. It would not sound good only having a single midbass driver in the middle of your car.

Point taken, looks like what he really wants is a sub then.
As I mentioned before, if you are having a problem with midbass, the first place to start with is the front stage....

I have CL-5Xs up front. I still have to amp them up but I'm waiting for some wire and to make an amp rack for my speaker amp. The Cl-5Xs sound nice but my Tempests completely overpower them. The midbass isn't too bad from the CL-5Xs until I turn my sub volume up a bit. Does anybody know of some good 5.25s with good midbass response that can handle about 75w? The idea of having a little Koda between my seats still sounds pretty tempting...
