    sealed baskets for door speakers

    Everybody talks about how doors need to be treated to get the best output out of them. Preventing air leaks in the door, sound deadening, etc, etc....

    Why not just put in a door speaker with a sealed basket? Problem solved?

    creating a proper sound wave. Step one, turn it up until clipping. Step two, done.

    Depends on the driver. Sometimes, yes, for sure. Although it's easier said than done in a lot of applications.

    Unfortunately that's not going to work with 99% of car audio specific drivers, unless of course you desire no midbass.

    Speakers need air space behind them. You can use a sealed enclosure but the volume of the enclosure has to match the speaker's needs. A sealed basket would be zero cu ft.

    yeah, trying to build an enclosure big enough in the door can be a challenge. Also since most car audio drivers are designed with a door panel in mind, you'd need a pretty big enclosure behind the door. Regardless, this is why I always do kickpanel installs in my car.

    Re: sealed baskets for door speakers

    Can you put the speaker in a "cup" like enclosure to give it more volume and so you don't have to seal the doors?

    The way I see it, the cup would slide right into the panel hole and the back wave would be captured like a sealed box. The door no longer has to be sealed off and deadened.

    they advertise "cup" style speaker enclosures for marine use on lots of websites. not sure if they would work well in a car.
