I have just installed my DLS UP6i component set in the front of my car and sound deadened the doors. I installed a rubber "moisture guard/roof" over the midbasses but when I took them out the other day I noticed that they were still getting wet and I am afraid that this will kill my speakers over time. (I just cut in half a rubber tube and glued it, after cutting to shape, to the door above the midbass).
Should I install those foam cups behind the midbasses and cut out the bottom to keep good sound quality or should I build enclosures in the door out of fiberglass?
I emailed DLS and they told me those drivers are suited for infinite baffle or a .31 cube sealed enclosure. I am worried that these enclosures will kill the midbass or effect sound in a negative way. I do think that I can fit that space into the door with some custom work (probably a lot lol). I feel like a .31 cube box would act as a high pass filter for these speakers at a frequency that they could otherwise reproduce without a problem.
Should I go with the foam cups and cutout the back or build the fiberglass enclosures?
-Just for reference I am running UP6I front stage active with 80prs Head unit. 190 watts to the woofers and 75 watts to the tweets. An Infinity Kappa Perfect10 VQ 10" sub and about 600 watts to it in a sealed enclosure.-
