    Is this a common practice for Midbass

    Is this a common practice for a Midbass installation?



    Installing the Focal K3P 3 way component set in front required locating the woofer somewhere other than the doors, so pods were built on the floor, with the midrange and tweeter mounted in the factory door locations. This is one great sounding system

    i dont understand as to why wouldnt they put the mid in the door and put the midrange in some kicks?...

    they did it again in a 528 installation

    I have actually heard of the midbass under the front seat area type install before. Apparently it actually works quite well and is done fairly regularly in European SQ competition. I believe the secret is not to run the midbass speaker very high.

    Re: Is this a common practice for Midbass

    I've seen it done a good bit and it does work and pretty well for some vehicles. I've even seen the midrange put in that location. Not the best place....but it does work.

    i know suburus have a woofer under the set i think its only like 3.5" though. but i have never seen a pod like that where its completely in sight, and able to be stepped on.

    Re: Is this a common practice for Midbass

    You will note that it is only done with 3-way setups in a real SQ type install. I have heard of very high scoring European SQ cars using this type midbass location as long as the midbass is not ran extremely high it apparently works quite well.

    Re: Is this a common practice for Midbass

    Meh. I wanna do that. I can't build kicks due to space, and I can't fiberglass anything on my door panels because if I mess up, I'll never find another set again... Curse my car's limited production numbers.

    I like that!

    Use an aluminum coned mid and it could double as an ashtray.

    True genius!

    Re: Is this a common practice for Midbass

    i agree, its very obtrusive and ugly IMO. the midbass better not be playing very high, meaning not over 150hz or so, it'll kill imaging if it is crossed any higher.

    Re: Is this a common practice for Midbass

    If for some reason they could not get a good install in/good amount of air space in the kicks... those midbass drivers on the floor like that are actually decent speaker placement.

    Best Three-way installs I have ever seen with conventional drivers is mid and tweet in the kicks, and midbass drivers in the floor under the dash/firewall.... the midbass driver in an install like that, on the driver's side, for instance, would be under the pedals. maybe someone can post a pic of one of those installs, I know they are out there.
