    Alright, this is my opinion and it's probably not what you're going to want to here, but.....don't do that. Take whatever trace of memory that you have of that plan in your brain and burn it. Make a nice small sealed box for the xplod, put each 8 in a very small sealed enclosure on each side of the vehicle and use those for midbass, and well forget the 6x9, it serves no purpose unless its paired with another one and implemented in the front soundstage/rear fill.

    One of my subs is inverted; it adds 10 DBs!

    No, Andy, I'm sure the context is fine.

    me and my g/f both got 12" sony xplod's hers is 1ft sealed and mine is 2ft ported. the sealed sounds like *****, my 2ft ported is loud. so my suggestion is 2ft ported for the 12 and leave the rest of it alone.
