Interested in seeing more pics for the evil mid enclosure you posted. It looks like you have a lot of volume if needed. Have you guys considered porting the evil mids?

Once the rear is done we are going to measure the volume and go from there. We may port it, but want to be sure first.

Bill may change his mind again.

The Evil mids can already do decent midbass duty in IB. However, if they respond in a ported enclosure the same way the woofers for my Bravox CS603CF component set did then I would HIGHLY recommend it!

Like the woofers in my component set the Evil mids are xmax limited. When I was testing mine I was able to move them into the realm of over excursion and heard the coil former lightly find the back plate on a few occasions. The ported enclosures are .5cuft and tuned to 65hz.  They allow the Bravox woofers to play very solid down to around 45hz (thanks to the DSP and the crossover controls available within) making it so every drum beat, bass guitar riff, and anything else that falls within its frequency range is felt every bit as much as heard. We ran it without a subwoofer for nearly a year because it didn't really need one on most material that we played. 

I have plans to drop the Evils in the doors to see how they perform in that alignment but I've not been able to get around to that work just yet. I would still highly recommend at least building a quick temporary enclosure just to test them out and see how you/him like them in a ported enclosure.

I have a set in ported enclosures which Bill did listen to. Mine are tuned around 66-67 hz, I also have a set in my 4runner IB. Both applications sound very good.

Also with a little top end eq the evil sounds very good full range to.

I don't doubt it, it's got great extension on the top end. 

How's the midbass in the enclosure?  I would imagine it murders the IB setup.

They dig pretty good to my ears. I hope to get Aaron back up to hear them.
