Can I use these 8mb4p as a door speakers for my car and if I use a jl audio amp 300 4v3 to power it would it sound good and loud clean this amp can put out 8ohms bridged please help I'm not that familiar with ohms and hz as much info as possible thanks
Yes, you could go that route, but may I suggest something that would work much better. First let's talk about your amp. JL Audio Slash 300/4v3. It's a 4-channel car amplifier, rated 75 watts RMS (continuous power) by 4 speakers at 1.5 to 4 ohms. Bridged (your manual will have instructions on how to do that) is rated at 150 watts RMS by 2 channels at 3 to 8 ohms. That is a little confusing in the description. Usually if it's rated at 150 watts at 4 ohms, the rating drops with a greater resistance, so at an 8 ohm load, the RMS rating would drop to 75 watts each, by two channels or speakers. This amp would put out twice the power if you stick with a 4 ohm speaker. The speaker's in question (Selenium 8MB4P 8" Woofer / Midbass Speaker) are rated at 250 watts RMS. So this amp would not be powerful enough to drive these speakers anywhere near their full potential even if bridged. The low-pass or bass is rated at 80 hz. Most of your good boom-boxes are rated at 30 to 50 Hz. So it would be a good mid-bass speaker, but not a good choice for a subwoofer, and considering the cost, I would go with something more efficient. For your amp (bridged) I would suggest the "Tang Band W8-1853 8" Neodymium Poly Woofer" they sold for around $200.00 new, now they are clearance at $75.00, so you better act fast! LOL! Now, let me say I do not work for this company, I am a good customer, and answer a lot of automotive questions as I have been installing car systems for some 30 years. Now back to the Tang Band speaker. It is rated at 4 ohms and 100 watts RMS, so your amp will have plenty of power to push these to the limit. They will handle 250 watts max so your in good shape there as well, they will distort the sound long before you blow the coils out. Another thing, they are rated at 37 to 350 Hz! Excellent for a great subwoofer. You will have to put foam adhesive strips behind the mounting surface if mounting them from the outside of your door panel.. You will also need some sound damping materiel mounted behind the speaker to keep your doors from rattling. I hope this shed some light on your questions. If there is anything else, I will respond as soon as I can. Best of luck on your project!

How would this sound as a midrange speaker?
looking for a high end midrange that will be in a custom 3-way front tower to do mixed duties like music (mixed genre) and home theatre, this system needs to be able to be VERY loud for music and have accurate sound for home theatre.Your help with this is appreciated!!!
This would work very well as a midrange speaker in an application like that. It will handle its full rated power as long as it is high-passed around 350 Hz or higher.
