    Default Anyone used a shallow mount sub in the front door?

    When I used the "Fit My Car" tool at Crutchfield, this speaker showed up to fit in my front door of 07 Tundra Regular Cab.

    JL Audio ZR800-CW Evolution™ ZR Series 8" component woofer (midbass driver) at Crutchfield.com

    JL 8" Free-Air Midwoofer. Looks like it could really add some bass without having to put a speaker box behind the seat.

    I also found this one.

    Kicker CompVT 08CVT654 Shallow 6.5" subwoofer at Crutchfield.com

    Kicker Comp 6.5" woofer.

    I would like to add some more bass in the truck without loosing the nice storage space behind the seat. Would you go with this or try and find a shallow mount 6x9?

    The real question is what will you have for midrange and higher? I would have to imagine incorporating 2 8 inch or 6.5 inch midbasses or subs into a do-it-yourself three way system would make for a pretty bangin system that will hold its own without a sub. But if you're looking to get bass from your door speakers, maybe 50 HZ and above, you'll need really good deadening and lots of power. Not the kind of thing I'd waste on head unit amplification.

    This is a pretty common set up with the C5 and C6 Corvette owners. My C5 has a kicker 8" midbass in each door, as well as a 4" MB Quart component set. The trick is definately in the installation. You will really need a stiff mounting surface and a lot of dynamat in the door. Would really sound even better if you can make an actual enclosure for the speaker. Power will need to be pretty stiff too, like a nice 600w RMS 4 channel, 2 channels dedicated to the mid / subs. I have a JBL / Crown 600.4 on my Corvette... those amps rock
