Why yes you may ask.Can I ask why did you angle the midbass? At that frequency it shouldn’t matter? Or am I wrong?

I'm also curious on this. Is an A/B test with off-axis in the works, or is this going to be based off of impressions from the previous car?Why yes you may ask.
I wanted to do a DIY experiment to see if it does indeed delivers a positive benefit .
The goal was to have the drivers in the same arc as the main stage to align the voice coils as much as possible to try and obtain the
and this is supposed to be a DIY site and not buy from a professional and have it all built.
- The best frequency and phase response from the driver for the passband I was interested in
- on-axis alignment
- Have the driver integrate seamlessly with the above dash stage to maximize sound staging.
And most of all I am curious and do not always follow the dogmatic statements
No off axis at this point as it would be way to much work , lol. So I am using my previous car as a baseline and all other cars I have heard with MB integration in the doors and under the seats, etc.I'm also curious on this.

Really enjoying the thread, keep up the great work!
That’s phase and timing, but I’m guessing you have that nailed as you’re a female me 😂 personally I don’t see any advantage to having drivers on axis playing those freqs, I am going to be putting hybrid 6x9 in the kicks as I can detect a very subtle pull down to only the right underseat in mine, your angled baffle puts the voice coil deeper into the corner vs it being flat in the door is the only advantage I can see, but I’d still do IB kicks over doors any day… I did measure the phase of kicks vs under seats in mine and kick is a lot nicer, kicks aren’t issue free, but a lot smoother with half as much of a null in the midband 😎No off axis at this point as it would be way to much work , lol.

You can’t aim a midbass to lose the across the car null, it plays omni directional at freqs below well over 500hz with an 8”, to suggest otherwise is never going to happenDumdum, hard to say without an experiment of normal aiming of the midbass but is it possible like you saw with kicks, that the nulls are shifted since the driver isn't playing primarily across the short side of the car but the longer length of the car? So it is possible the nulls were pushed OUT of the midbass frequency and into the subwoofer frequency so the nulls were no longer an issue. Again, that is a potential benefit but isn't able to be validated without a comparison of the ML8 in the same vehicle with normal door driver placement.
Thank you for the kind and supportive words 🤗🤗Amazing to see another Canuck do everything in the spirit of what this site exists to exemplify, the diy aspect. Wish I had the commitment to really try some crazy things like this, but not in the cards for me now. Looking forward to seeing more progress. This site has some really inspiring people on it. Great work so far.
