Seriously: if you have something sitting in front of a speaker, EQ settings aren’t your issue.

In the typical 928 seating arrangement, the driver’s ears do not have a clear path to the 6” drivers in the C pillar.

I've found the audio sounds pretty good with the car off, but add in the various noises when driving, it goes downhill fast. But, that's the price you pay :-)

I've seen some installs with a larger driver in the lower part of the door, which would help this a lot, I would think (although shouldn't the larger stock position door drivers be able to handle 250-2K pretty easily?) but that was more irreversible modifications than I was willing to make at the time. Is that area deep enough to fit something with decent mid-bass/low mid range?

My client with the 3-way component system in the door has a 6" in place of the 4" and a 4" in place of the OE tweeter. The 'new' tweeter is mounted to the part of the armrest above the HVAC port in the door. It's an 'old school' MB Quart component system.

While I have spent considerable time fixing the interior wiring I've not had to go into the doors, so I don't know what was done to accommodate the speakers. If I recall correctly the 1/2" trim rings that came with the MBQ kit were used. I would think though, that the drivers must be super shallow. Overall the system has pretty 'even' sound. It fills in the 'notch' in the 300-500 Hz range and adds some richness in the ~200 Hz range. The door ends up being more-or-less a ported enclosure.

I was going to suggest driving it off a pier into Lake Michigan but I was Ninja'd by SwayBar.
