Default Let's talk mid-bass.

From beginner to advanced...
Have a 04' F150, looking for mid-bass solutions.
What do you guys do?
Tri-amp?

Running a 600w monoblock to a 12" sub, thinking of adding an 8", but I don't want frequency cancellation. Custom doors etc a little esoteric for now, but not out of the question.

Thought?

well just a good set of component speakers sounds like they would be a good upgrade for you and will prove some midbass.

you don't need 8's, 6.5's be much easier to use. 8" midbass would probably over power your subwoofer

I have infinity reference components with crossovers, doors dyna-matted, they just aren't cutting it for frequencies of (roughly) 250-1000(?)

Does this make sense?

I am a bass player, and would like to get more punch/spl for bass solo runs up the fretboard, that sort of thing.

It's all about SQL and balance, if I can find it.

Mach5 mli is worth looking into, especially at the pre-order price. I've been very happy with the AA carbon fiber mids and have used them with a 63Hz HPF...

Most components should play midbass pretty well, but a lot of it gets lost due to a poor installation. Sealed and deadened doors would be the most ideal without resorting to custom pods as you suggested. Best way to do this? Aluminum flashing from your local hardware store, some good adhesive, ample deadening, and some patience. Sealing up the access holes in your doors will make the door seem closer to a "sealed" enclosure for the mids and will really help bring out the midbass. Also, power helps

what amp do you have on your components?
maybe you have settings that are eliminating bass, like a high pass filter set to high

Currently not much power (MTX 50X4), but it's still damn loud. I have tried the HP at lower settings at the bass overwhelms the mids, and it sounds like shyte. (buzzing, etc)

I was kind of thinking along these lines (after all, I installed it, so it's gonna be wonky!)
One problem I have is broken door tabs. Any clean fixes for that? (It would be hard to seal tight without functional tabs). I trimmed my dynamat to create a seal around the door, (more for vibration) but yeah, there are TONS more places on each door/panel that air would bleed from unless I got crazy with it. It would be awesome to make a two speaker 'pod' that could go from vehicle to vehicle...hmmm....thinking dangerously expensive and impractical solutions...stop me...
