    Doors dead? Based on ur sig I see no reason u are lacking midbass unless ur settings are all jacked up, freq, slope, etc or ur doors are not sealed correctly..

    Wow thanks for the quick replies. I'll take a pic of them today but I have them in the q-logic kickpanels...which are def not sealed very well. I can easily put my finger in behind it. I was thinking about switching to my doors if it would give me a better sound.

    I think sealing the kicks would do better for the Focals

    Cross subs higher or mids lower. Also worth experimenting with is running sub out of phase (or adjust phase if you have the option) to see if it's a cancellation issue.

    Re: Zero midbass....suggestions?

    pickup1 could I do an extra midbass in the door with the same amp I'm using? If so any suggestions on what to get?

    hispls that's almost what it sounds like...I know the speakers are capable of it but at certain frequencies it just cuts out. I'll flip the phase today and see if that helps

    any suggestions on how to seal those q-logics?

    You could use a 3 way passive crossover and use the same amp,or..use the front for the front and use the rear off the amp for the midbass,run rear fill off fhe headunit.

    you do not need a 3 way set to get good midbass.

    You need to take some sheet metal or wood or something sturdy and seal up those gaping holes in the door frame. Also, you'll want some deadener on your doors.
