    Midbass?

    I have a set of Polk Audio 8" db804 that are listed as subs, my question, can this be used as a midbass in my doors? I have an 08 Dodge Daytona and the doors are deadened and sealed, also the 8" would only be playing from 75-200hz. I also have a set of 6.5", would these be a better match with the 4" midrange and tweeter setup?

    it'll depend if the 8" can play high enough... I FR graph would help, but I doubt Polk has them available.

    Or maybe you can model them in a winisd or another program w/ the TS params.. if you know or have an estimate of the volume of your door.

    If I ever owned a Digital Designs 9915 Beast, I would get two of them... just so I could say "I own a pair of DD Breast".

    Surround looks a little schnockered.

    Need more details on the Polks.

    Just because they are 8", does not mean they will make suitable midbass drivers.

    Interesting.

    8"......10w7.

    Those would have to be the only pair of 8" ten-inch drivers in existence.
