    Potentially yes. Most of the work done to doors is to eliminate cancellation, and if you are getting cancellation at those frequencies then yes, you will notice something. It is the best first step IMO, and may get you what you are looking for. However, it may not. I think you have some high hopes in mind, and you may not find that without some bigger woofers and/or a 3-way front stage. Again, I am not the subject matter expert on this, though I think doing work on your current setup first is the way to go. If you can go to shows or someone local that has a good front stage and listen and discuss what they have done, I think you will get some idea of the work and time involved and what exactly you want/need to do.

    And again, there's a lot of information in this forum. Do some searching and reading. Don't decide on anything right away, give yourself a month or so to absorb some info.

    Yeah, that all sounds good. I'll see if I can find any comps around here, that would be sweet to go to.

Mid drivers should be able to be crossed at 100 or 120 and the two should meet well causing no loss in output between your subs and mids.
    I know this is old, but I was just re-reading this thread because I forgot the things people had said. Anyways, I came across this post of yours, and realized you gave some good info. But the problem is that I'm stuck with the 24dB/octave slope that my sub amp has. With this information, what would you say I should crossover my sub around? It's at 80hz right now.
