I am looking for a pair of bass/mid bass drivers to install in my doors. They will be free air mounted. Some years ago I used Morel cw 8's but don't have Morel $$$ now and would prefer even shallower drivers.

Any positive suggestions?

I still have a pair of Infinity (forget model#) inverted cone mount 8"-er, don't know if they still have it, sweet spot is around 550 hz. I was able to put in 3.5" deep pizza boxes. Power handling not great so depends what u need.

Solution: FREE. Explanation: I will have to charge$ you.

Thanks for the info but I will keep looking The morell was 75mm or 3 inches and was good to 100 Hz in free air. That was many years ago and I am sure things have progressed since then.

Are these for door mounting?

Is 3" the deepest you can go?

Yes for door mounting and that 3 inches includes a 1/2 inch spacer to make it 2 1/2 so I can roll down the window. I have my old Seas mid and Vifa tweet which will go in and on top of dash. I am trying to recreate a prior system. Each driver will have a separate amp and the electronic xover is fourth order.

Please don't judge the brand...

These will actually make you happy and mad at the same time. Happy that they sound so good for the money you spent and mad that you have before spent so much money. That made sense right?

A relabled speaker sold as a pro audio driver by several companies. The fact you are running active with steep crossover slopes is a good thing as well. Very efficient as well.

An aquaintance ran the 10" version of these in his tahoe coupled to a set of CD horns. 63-1500 if memory serves. Excellent response. He won an SQ event. Had gobs of power going to them as well.
I have used these 8's in 2 cars for midbass duty. Great results for the money. Staggered crossover slopes with the subs (100 hertz for 8" and 80 hertz for subs) Anyway, these get overlooked due to brand and the fact they are pro audio drivers.

If you could use a 1" spacer, these are my favorite 8"mid.
