    Enclosures for RE XXX XBL^2 6.5s

    i am putting them in my rear deck and am thinking about what to enclose them in and how i should go about doing it. I have a honda civic and the rear deck is metal so i am unsure how to mount these guys with an enclosure.

    my sub leaves the speakers in the deck at peak excursion making them pointless to have unless sealed up.

    I have seen a guy bolt up and seal 6 X 9 boxes on the underside of a deck. He bolted the subs themselves on the top of the deck but everything was siliconed good so no leaks. Once you figure out what size box they like, a simple sealed box on the underside of the deck should work.

    rear speakers are a waste IMO. If you must seal them, fiberglass with some kind of wooden ring would probably by the easiest.

    I was assuming he was trying to run them to play bass/midbass.

    I had them for the same reason, my Aura's lack in the midbass department. I just have a hatchback and no desire to do all that work (read: pay someone to do all that work).



    When my favorite sports team loses, it makes me want to hit my girlfriend.

    I've heard midbass is more like mids/highs as in you want it in front of you and near you. I got frowned upon when I want to put midbass in my rear doors.

    interesting. so i will see(hear) little improvement from the added xxx's? i just figure my 5.25s are not loud enough low enough to mix well with the sub so I am looking for a little more filler.


    edit: also i feel like the rear window acts as a better way to get the mid-range to my ears rather than in the rear doors. what do you think?
