I found the issue, but the tech is ripped out! It's in October of 2001. What you can do is get some like, 1/8" aluminum plate, and pop rivet pieces to cover all the giant holes in your door, (tons of spray deadener on the outer skin) then lay some dynamat over that. and then do your speakers. That way your door is pretty much sealed and you'll get a better sound.

He used the cool whip bowl for the shape, then cut a hole in the back. Then took some metal grill stuff and sandwiched fiberglass insulation in between it. If you can find that issue, it'll answer all of your questions.

btw, an Aperiodic enclosure, which is what i just described, will give you better mid-bass and better power handling.

I think in that tech the guy sprayed like 3 liters of some RF sound deadener on the outer door skin. I would do something similar with dynamat to your kicks. For the large flat areas use some xtreme dynamat.

But make sure you get 1/8" aluminum for the holes in your doors. I went to my local sheet metal place and got three pieces for each door. And they cut it for me. only cost around $28. I sprayed about 6 cans of rubberized undercoating onto each door skin, Then i pop riveted the metal over the holes and siliconed around it. Then add your one or two layers of dynamat.
