    worth the upgrade?

    I have pair of midbass Exodus Anarchy 8 ohm (bridged at 4 Ohm in series) or upgrade to pair of CDT M6+ 4 ohm. Would it be worth it or should I stay with what I have. Freq range will be 80Hz - 600Hz and installed in doors and doors are deadened with 80mil

    M6+ is designed for small sealed or ported enclosures, which your door is neither. I would do more work to treat the doors. "80 mil" deadener is only addressing one of several obstacles to getting good bass from a door.

    Re: worth the upgrade?

    Ok I have deadened front & back of the panels and the inside if that is any help and I also have baffles on the speakers too. So I assume the M6s will be the same as the M6+. Better for a sealed enclosure.

    No, M6 is suitable for use in a door like most other car speakers. You can put M6 in a small sealed or ported enclosure, but it's not as important as with M6+. That little + sign means more than the differences between HD-6 and HD-M6 as far as suitable enclosures. Think of HD-M6 like a midbass woofer, and M6+ as a small box subwoofer.

    Re: worth the upgrade?

    I would keep the anarchy mids. Perhaps they need more power, doors need more treatment and also play them down lower as they will dig deeper then 80Hz...

    Brad, deadener alone is just one thing you can do to treat doors. CCF and MLV plus absorption inside the door is what you can work on next.
