    Need advice for underseat bass/midbass



    I am getting a JBL Ms-8 to integrate my VW RCD 310 system that came with the polo. active front comps and rear coax on doors.

    My question is which among these two will be the best to put under both front seats. i want it to play the midbass too as i like really warm and full sound rather than thin and boomy.

    i was thinking of having a 300hz active crossover from the Ms-8 to the subs. the pioneer's response is 30-1500hz while the kicker is 25-350hz.

    I love a good punchy beat (i listen to house/trance mostly and sometimes slow rock) but im not a basshead anymore like with the hip hop songs.

    Which would u ppl recommend? new suggestions are welcome.

    I have had good luck with the Pioneer woofer, and it will work in a very small air space. You may want to consider the Earthquake Series series woofer. Its another woofer that I've had personal experience with. If you use one of the shallow mount woofers, down fire it for best performance.
