    Midbass help

    Alright I finished sealing up my doors and I still don't have the mid-bass I know these Germs can produce. I have plenty of power going to them and they are loud enough. But the midbass is weak, it is about the same as my mom's civic stock system . Any ideas of why this is?

    Re: Midbass help

    And you've double and triple checked the wiring polarity, the amp gains, and any pass filters?

    Re: Midbass help

    I've checked the wiring it is all + to + and the amp gains are set properly, up around 280watts per side and the pass filters are ~ 80hz @ 12dB

    Re: Midbass help

    Have you applied any EQ from the HU?

    Re: Midbass help

    The PEQ is turned up a few nothces around 400hz but that is it, and I had the same problem before I did that. The crossover ont he HU is set at 80hz @ 12dB, time alignment for the doors and sound stage set for a compact car.

    Re: Midbass help

    Try reversing the polarity of one of the midbass.

    See if that changes anything.

    Re: Midbass help

    I have same problem with my focal k2p in a 02 honda accord. I am thinking to do a door pod or even kick panel now. I've sealed the door and has done polarity, beat EQ, and all kinds of diagnoses but didn't help.

    Re: Midbass help

    i've recalled that most rainbow speakers need to be "broken in." i think it was like a 10 hour break in time or something.
