Re: Speaker size for ear moving midbass?
If you're into electronic music some of it has some hard hitting midbass for the beat. Underworld - Kittens has gotten my midbasses playing pretty loudly back when I was crossing them at 50 Hz(which I do not recommend). I don't know what frequency the kick is centered at, but you can get the song on YouTube. It sounds fine even at 360p.

2. No chance on the 6x9s. Last I heard the only sets worth picking up were out of my monthly pay range, much less spending limit. As well as having replaced the mounting area for them with boxes for jl 6w3v3s. Still need a proper amp for those though, the Performance Teknique I scrapped off my first Kicker box isn't cutting it without clipping.
Put the fiberglass insulation in thin plastic bags. Don't use polyfill, the fiberglass is much better. I don't really agree on the "133%-125% components' RMS power" part, but some extra power is always good. I would buy more power rather than not enough, to a point.
3. (Pertaining to the 80-300hz range) Attain quality components, get amp with 133%-125% components' RMS power, amplify the components, deaden doors, seal doors, polyfil/fiberglass insul doors, install airtight weatherstripped/caulked baffle, install components, attain midbass, quality, and clarity.
(Pertaining to the 80-40hz range) Redesign box <Suggestions? New design style from ported to bass reflex, horn, bandpass 4/6, even sealed?>
Does 3 look correct?
If making a new box isn't a big deal I would try a sealed box. It should broaden the response over what you're hearing now, as I suspect your box is peaking way too low.
