  2. Hey thanks Mac, so I guess I'll go ahead and keep them in the doors. The only thing is that my doors dont have much volume behind them since they have been sealed of in half. Also the stock Mid is probably 3 or 3.5 inches so I have to make some alterations anyways. This is why I though that I could make an enclosure and open it up further through the door panel so I get about .4 cu.ft behind the mid driver. you mentioned that the SR's work best free air, but ive got limited volume in the doors so what do you feel the minimum volume I will require to get these speakers to work flawlessly - from your experience?? The enclosure I'm planning on is mainly to add volume to the existing door panel according to your recommendation and to help direct the speaker toward the center of the front seats. Hey thanks a lot for the help, I appreciate it! As for lobbing, I don't fully understand it, but I believe it occurs when vertical separation between the tweets and the mids is created its stretches the soundstage in that direction...I'm really not sure, but heres the link to the article in CA&E if you want to check it out -

    its pretty interesting but a lot of it goes over my head since i'm not all that well versed!

    The Polk SR's work best in a free air set up. Mount them in the doors and dont worry about using an enclosure.

    The best place to mount the tweeters is wherever they work best. Ive never heard of "lobbing" but know that 99% of SQ competitiors that have their mids in the kicks, have the tweets in the a pillars or someother place up high. The reason being is that with everything in the floor most of your stage is going to come from the floor.

    Best thing to do is to try the mids AND tweeters in different places and see how they sound.
