    Would be better for an active setup. You could run those as mid bass than have a set of 6.5 mid ranges with tweeters.

    Like what has already been said. Cant use a sub as a midbass. If you could there would be no such thing as a midbass. Secondly your doors will rattle and sound like shit. Third doubt you have that kind of mounting depth or space in a door.
