Every1 keeps telling me to get a midbass setup to go with my XXX. What is a good setup for midbass?

im very interested in this too... i almost posted a thread about it until
i found this one actually...

i experienced the same dissatisfaction with the XXX and midbass was
brought up to me as well... i admit i had my crossovers set too high as
i learned quickly today... i figured i would try to tweak my current setup
and lower the crossover a bit...

i noticed A LOT of souds were now gone from the subs which cleaned
up the subs sound... but now ive lost the improperly manufactured midbass...

i dont want to turn the crossover back up because i actually think the
sub i have sounds even better... but i cant handle what ive lost... even
if it shouldnt have been there in the first place...

whats a good, possibley "ghetto" way to get some quick and easy
midbass back into the mix without having the subs play it???

something reasonably priced...

I'd look into getting a descent comp set and scrapping the pioneers.

I was actually thinking about getting an Adire Extremis 6.8 maybe even 2. Would that solve my problem u think?

You can't get a single midbass driver. Midbass is in stereo, you must have two of them.

Also, buying something like the Extremis or XXX mids creates a few problems for ya, the main one being that you will need to purchase an external crossover for them (they do not come with one). Plus the Extremis are nearly 4" deep.....not all vehicles have room upfront (YES, you want them upfront and not behind you) to easily fit a driver of that depth.

As Berry said, the best way is to purchase a comp set and an amp, then work on the install to maximize their midbass output.

couldnt you just get a pair of 6.5"s or 8"s and tap
into the speakers much the way you do for the sub...

just get an amp with a SSF and filter it to just play from
like 50-110 or so???

Far from ideal. Kinda of a waste, IMHO, to add nice midbass speakers to a stock/co-axial setup. You'd be MUCH better off just getting a complete comp set.

u would also need an amp that puts out 100w @ 8ohms.
