Default Help with mids in front doors

I have a 99 camry & have a kenwood excelon x996 head unit. I have installed a pair of aq german 6.5's I am using the passive crossover that came with them powered by a mbquart onyx 4.80 4 channel. I have the woofer in the factory location in the front doors tweeters in the sail panel (factory location) & have them on channels 1 & 2 of the amp. I have read sealing up the doors helps with mid bass but I would still want to be able to service the parts inside the door if something were to break. What can I do to get better response out of my mids in the front door?

I am still tuning the system & there are quite a lot of features to comb through I did turn up the bass eq on the amp & that seemed to help some. I usually stay away from bass boost on amps but I figured I would see what difference it makes. I had the amp bridged but I get much a much cleaner sound just wiring to channels 1 & 2. I guess I was expecting tight accurate & to the point bass maybe my expectations are too high?

Not my pics, but I did exactly this. It worked great and it isn't permanent.

Deaden outside of door.

Deaden inside of door.

Cover holes with aluminum roof flashing secured by sheet metal screws.

Deaden over that.

I am thinking of running speaker wire to the amp & using the crossover on the amp or the headunit to see if i can get some better results i may leave the tweeter on the passive crossover im not sure what im gonna do just yet.

i no longer use them, (i lost them at some point) but i did used some cheap foam things off amazon made by boom mat, and they are basically a little pod that your speaker sitsin, and they worked ok, i then cut about a 1-2" hole in them and the mid bass was much greater.

Hey I lost your number. Did you ever get the q's installed? What did you do for an enclosure?

About the mids it makes a world of difference when you deaden the doors. Then you want to seal it up. I use mlv for that. Also you want the mid mounted to something solid. Usually the door skin or plastic mount isn't rigid enough and will effect response.

Hey whats up & thanks for asking. Sorry I never got back to ya but I got busy putting in some extra hours to help get some funds for this project & just had an enclosure built to save me a little time but the next one I'm gonna do myself. Now I have got an enclosure, deadened my trunk & installed my components. I wanted to install my components before I put my subs in. Got a little side tracked with this project at the moment I have a sheet of wood & I'm gonna work on laying out make a template & cutting out a wood floor the shape of my trunk then I'll put my subs in. Riding around right now with no door panels on & with the power window switch zip tied to the door.
