Re: Do Kick panels give better SQ than using your door?
The classic solution is midbass drivers in the doors and main speakers in the kicks. The doors (sealed & deadened) typically give better midbass and custom kick panels let you aim the main speakers for ultimate imaging. Mmmmm... fiberglass project...
You need to bandpass the midbass, so using the same amp is not really an option.
There are dedicated midbass drivers out there.
