Midbass speaker "box" designs and tips(please inform me of the basics))


Recommended Posts

So I'm planning on upgrading my door speakers and I want to add 2 of the same speakers to the system by making a center console so the front would be set up like this- 🚪🔈🪑🔈][🔈🪑🔈🚪. However I havnt found any information on how I should build the speaker section of the center console. Do I build it so that they are enclosed, opened up so they share the same air within the interior of the console? Also should I use seperat tweeters and a horn (the speakers going into the door have built in tweeters)? Here are the speakers going into the doors and center console DS18 PRO-HY6.4B 6.5". Thank yall so much for the help!

I would go sealed the speakers share the same air but if u have 1 on each side u would probably have to reverse the polarity on 1 of them and if your tweeters are down low I would add some higher

I'm not sure I understand the part about the tweeters, but if you're saying that I should get regular speakers and separate tweeters as opposed to geting the hybrid speakers with the built in tweeter/driver, then I can put the new tweeters in the sail trim where the stock ones are to have them higher than the regular speakers are.

Yes exactly components up front so a mid bass and a tweeters will sound better

What are some things an amplifier needs to be good for powering tweeters? Such as full pass, low pass crossover....?

If you are using a passive crossover, or DSP, you need at least a full range function on the amp (payable up to 20k hz)

If you're using the amplifiers crossovers to protect the tweeters, you'll need a HPF (high pass filter) that can be set at least up to (and just guessing here) 4,500 hz or so. It depends on the capabilities of the tweeters you're using. 

Basically, you're just trying to keep them from playing too low of a frequency that will damage the tweeter
