issues acheiving midbass. . .

i have 4 inch and 6 1/2 inch infinity component speakers (reference model i believe) and they are completely incapable of reproducing midbass. It is frustrating listening to my system because my speakers create loud, piercing highs and vocals and my JL w6v2 creates amazing lows. But my system, especially on certain songs, misses enitire elements of the music. No matter how i adjust the high pass filter on my 4 channel amp and my head unit to enhance mid-bass the speakers still dont respond!!!

Is this just characteristic of the infinity speakers, or do i have other issues?

Sound like typical Infinitty speakers to me. No midbass and painfully bright upper midrange/highs. A lot of people like the way they sound though.

How are the speakers mounted? If they are mounted the same way as the factory speakers, then you could re-mount them with a better baffle. I usually make MDF rings to create an "enclosure". The rings are ounted to the door metal, then the speaker is mounted to the enclosure. You could mount tweeters on the door panel, but it is best to mount the woofer to the door itself.

XTC Baffles will help midbass response...but you'll always be limited as long as the speakers are mounted to the back of the door panel.
