Great Imaging an Midbass once modified
I picked a set of the 6.5" models of these and was quite pleased. The color and texture of the plastic was a perfect match for my car and once installed looked factory. They provide really good imaging (most artists are staring you right in the face) and I find that the imaging is best when I have the balance dead center which is a good sign that you are on the right track.<BR><BR>BE FOREWARNED: Don't expect to install these things right out of the box in your ride and have any kind of midbass or midrange for that matter. While these products are custom made for each vehicle I discovered that they have HUGE gaps in certain sections that allow the back wave of the midbass to leak into your cab and destroy ANY bass you might have had. They are also a little on the flimsy side and resonate BAD.<BR><BR>SOLUTION: Put 2 layers of dynamat (or equivalent) on the inside of these panels and then go to your local art supply store and buy 10 pounds of non-hardening modeling clay. Take the clay and pack in the inside of the pods and especially along the outside edge. APPLY LIBERALLY. When you are done, the pods should weigh about 10 pounds. The clay will seal the edges and create the seal encessary for these things to sound good. A little tweaking the clay and they sound GREAT!!
