    RE8's in doors?

    I just picked up a pair of RE8's, which I will be running off of my 3rd Memphis MCA3004 amplifier at 230 watts per driver. Will these work well in a door application for midbass?

    The RE8's are subwoofers, not midbass.

    You can try it, but don't hold your breath expecting spectacular results.

    Even RE used to specifically recommend against using them as midbass.

    Just because a subwoofer is small (8"), doesn't automatically mean it will play well into higher-than-typical frequencies.

    However if you already have a solid front stage, you could still add them to your doors as subwoofers (their intended purpose) for some "true" upfront bass Get buttloads of sound deadening though.........

    You are going to have to deaden the **** out of your doors and seal them up best you can.IMO I will be running CDT EF-8 in the door but they have a bit wider freq response than the RE. If you can get the install right it should bring some very nice low-end upfront. Seeing as you can x them over down low. I would start at about 40hz and go from there. The install and deadening will be key to acheive desired end results.

    Good luck it should be a blast playing with them though.
