after some further listening, judge feedback, and local audio nerd feedback, i discovered that my mids were crossed too low, the enclosures were too small, or the enclosures weren't vented enough. the biggest indication was the bloom/boom centered around 500hz.



shinjohn and papasin suggested i try to vent the driver better into the door. so i got a blessing from jtaudioacc and opened them up a bit to breathe into the door panel. i punched an additional 1+" hole directly into the door panel. should be almost 2" diameter total vent.



thankfully i've got spare door panels:






end result? solid response down to 100hz!


lower midrange tones sound more pronounced. midrange notes aren't as pronounced. whole stage sort of relaxed a little. positioning is a little better. stage height raised up a bit as well.

also note: it's funny watching these little c3 drivers blap out the lower notes (no lowpass crossover)

i should have a bigger update in a couple weeks.

My wife's MkV GLI is shaping up to be Illusion C6 midbass + C3 midrange in factory locations. I also have some of the Alpine SPX repos off of ebay that might go in if I don't score something better sooner.

I'm looking forward to hearing Nick's car with the C3CXs. Hopefully at Marina?
