Hi all, I have a few choices regarding midbass that I was planning to run in my next build, need thoughts on what would provide the best regardless of fabrication etc. My 3 choices are. Brax ml8, Zr-Dream 1, or skanning Fu6. What im planning to run is the skanning, have aluminum pods also so would be stiff and heavy duty. Will be sending plentiful power as a hv venti will be used. Heres a couple pics of the skanning. Will be going in a lexus ls430. Cheers and thanks all for input in advance!

That must of been nice to hold those beauties! I believe they are the best looking drivers ever made... how was the size in comparasion to an 8 inch midbass?


This is really intresting.. will give it a deep thought. Not exactly sure which car i'll be going with since i decided not to go with the lexus yet due to finding out it was a normal package, and the double glazed/laminated windows only comes in the ultra package, and that is one of the main things I was looking forward to in the car due to immense reduction in road noise/viabrations compared to a non-laminated window car.

If yall have any good suggestions for a car that would compensate a great build let me know. Im looking for a 4 door luxury sedan, or a 2 door luxury coupe. 2 cars in mind were the 2000 lexus LS430 or 2019 benz S550 coupe(could go with s63 but no point in extra noise need a smooth quiet ride). Price for vehicle is not too much of an issue have a budget of 100k.(lexus 20k/s550 90k)

Cheers all and thank you so much for the help, suggestions and support!
New E or S class Mercedes with firewall mounted midbass would be my choice for pure sound quality after listening to peters for a good while 馃憤馃徏

I showed how to install the midbass in the firewall in the existing car.

In the glovebox firing to the firewall. I also showed it in this thread. And I finished it in my car. 9L enclosure, absolute stock look, all the foot space.

I'm gonna try the firewall thing with the TM8s in my volvo. Hopefully I can get away with no front sub. I'm just curious how high up rear subs can play in the back of an SUV.
