2 - 8"

Like these - Peerless 830667 8" Paper Cone SLS Subwoofer 264-1102

EDIT: What amp for midbass, and what crossover points/slopes? Will they be sealed enclosures?

I like the equipment you have so far. gj.

JL zr800s are actually some of the best sounding mid bass drivers on the market. I'm doing the same thing in my tahoe w/ a 2 cube box tuned to 32hz with a 2 inch aero. I plan on crossing them 60-250 @ 6db slope since I often listen to my system with the subs off.

If the speakers in your console are firing up you will hear them more easily you may not need large drivers for this as they will be louder because of placement. Id use 6.5s

The TB fullrange can easily play from 300Hz up to 4KHz, and do it with less distortion than most 8". That's just my advice.

But for recommendations in your setup, B&C 6NDL44 6-1/2" Neodymium Woofer 294-647

What?!?! Your tuning to 32hz and then crossing them over at 60hz? That doesn't make since as your almost a full octave lower on tuning then crossover point.
Unless I miss-read what you wrote.

I think it's probably because that sub is not moving enough to allow it to cool.. Id turn the gain up a bit so it moves more for cooling reasons.. That's why it's hard on subs to be underpowered..

The while reason I was looking at the cdt m6+ was because the get down to 50 Hz easy which will be my crossing point. I am looking for a mid bass/range speaker not just one or the other but thanks for helping!
any I the suggestions?
