Car doors dont have a lot of volume. Every driver has a optimal volume in which it operates best. I would think that in small doors a 6.5" woofer might even be better than a 8" (depending on T/S characteristics).

You're right about a 6.5" woofer (read as midrange/midbass) being more comfortable, but even a 8" midbass/ midrange operating over 80 Hz would have no problem. The advantage would be it's ability to handle more power in the 80-250 Hz range compared to any 6.5". There is however not much sense in having this in the rear door.

But I think, considering the small volumes that ID subs are generally comfortable with, the ID8 should do well in a car door as a sub. But you'll have to throw in ****loads of damping.

I lust at the idea of having a setup in a big car where I could probably have 2 ID8s (I don't know any brand that makes a better budget 8" subwoofer) in a clamshell isobaric enclosure (to make the enclosure volume even smaller than what those pups take) in the front, right where most cars would have a console, and a nice 3-way (8" midbass + 4"/3"/2" cone or dome midrange + 1" DT) in the doors. That would be quite a setup. I had tried this a long time back, but the results were distasteful since I didn't have the right sub drivers, and good damping.

I also wish that most cars were developed with a rear engine so that I could pop subs in the trunk upfront, but then I was always known as the King Of Wishful Thinking.

I especially liked the clean Mids and tight mid bass ..which are perfect for the strong vocals/rock I normally hear.... I actaully mute the rears nowadays ( have Infinity reference 6x9 ) in the rears...... the frotn soundstage gives me everythg I need......

The pics are already there on the thread posted by JKD...
