Default Rear deck midbass

Would this work? Im no SQ guru, I just like my music loud.. but it upsets me when I get into a car with the stock system and there is way more midbass than I have.

I have 6.5s up front (switching out with someone soon and going active) but I want a beefy 6.5 to take care of strictly midbass in my rear deck. 80hz~ (maybe 100) to whatever people suggest, maybe 500hz?

What 6.5s are cheap and perform well IB as a midbass?

250-300hz is about as high as you'd want to cross without dragging the stage backward. The majority opinion is that can work, but some that have done it say it isn't really worth it.

I had considered rear door MB, but after readng all the threads about it on DIYMA and gathering info, I don't think I'll bother. I just ran my sub cross up to 120hz because after all, what's going to give you more output? A couple little IB 6.5's or your subs?

Exodus Anarchy 6.5's are nasty little midbass speakers but aren't cheap at $90 per speaker.

Those things are sick. I wish I had a spot for them. Definitely a dedicated midbass only driver though.

Ok so here's a dumb question
What's the difference between 'midbass' and a sub bass? What can one do that the other can't?..

Unless you're just hardcore SQ, which isn't the case, some subs can be used for midbass. For example, Ik there's a few people running E8s from say 60hz to 200 hz. I also have a pair of Alpine Swe-1043 and their specs show up to 1khz. I'm using them for 60-240hz(2 octaves).

But thanks for chiming in. Your opinion is duly noted.

OK good to know.

I actually would do rear door MB only since I dont care about having rear speakers.. but I dont have rear doors! lol

I may just give this a shot just to see how it is. If I like it, Ill make it pretty and make it work. If not, .. well Ill go from there.

What 6.5s would do well IB in that freq range? Say 80hz - 300hz. Need to get em as cheap as possible.. those Anarchys are great but outta my price range for a "test" like this

"mid" bass is exactly what the name implies. The middle bass region. Usually 80ish-300ish hertz. "Sub," I assume either means below or the lowest frequencies. 80ish and below. Although a ton of guys cross at 60hz or lower.

mid bass on the rear deck can be done, but you really have to pay attention to the xover point. The higher you go, the more the image is going to pull. Ive heard it done right and I have heard it done really bad. For me, I would go past 200 and that would be a push.

I've recently heard some REALLY good sounding cars with rear-deck or rear-door midbass. I always thought it was a bad idea until I saw it used and played around with it for myself. The key is to keep all noise to a minimum, so use drivers with low mechanical noise. Use a good crossover to keep out any ringing/phase discrepancies/harmonics. Damp or mass-load anything that will sympathetically vibrate. Of course, that's all just if i care about your soundstage. If you don't give a damn about that then put them wherever you want and wang on it, lol. For a lot of people that's all they want.
