    single 8 or 6.5 in cab

    ive got my subs in the trunk (3 ssa dcons 10's) i was wondering if it would be a good idea to throw either a 8" or 6.5" sub in the cab somwhere to gain some midbass, just in a small box somewhere hidden. would this sound bad, i just want some harder hitting midbass. thanks.

    I dont think subwoofers arnt designed to play midbass fqs, ide look into full range drivers, but theres alot of good 8in mids/full range speakers

    if your truck is an auto, build a small center console for them (so you can control air space) cupholders, change pocket, etc. so its worth your time and you gain some functionality out of it

    You can get that from your subwoofers, but it may be difficult to get it to sound balanced with your speakers. Mostly it's install and tuning issues that need to be addressed that will give you hard hitting, punchy bass up front.

    Check out Sound Deadener Showdown - Your Source for Sound Deadening Products and Information and send an e-mail to the owner, Don. If he doesn't get back to you within a couple of days send another e-mail. He'll give a consultation to discuss your situation and your vehicle. You need multiple treatments to get strong midbass up front with door-mounted speakers. Deadener alone isn't the answer.

    You cant just put some deadener on the doors though you gotta make sure you seal them up
