XXX Mids seem to be pretty popular... Theyre 6.5" but are a bit oversized.

Yea I think they were somethin like 6.9 inches lol. But they might be a lil over your budget, a little over 250 a pair.

There are hundreds.

What application? How much power do you have? What frequency range will they be playing? What type of install (IB in door, small sealed, ported?)? Passive or active crossover? What tweeters and midrange (if any) will you be using?

That's just to start with.

also keep in mind that xxx mids are 2 ohms which means you can get more power from your amp. like mentioned earlier we need more details though. you can find xxx mids for under $200 used.

passive crossovers,

What passive crossover?

You are going to need to get the same impedance that the crossover was designed for (if it was designed for 4ohm, you'll need a 4ohm mid). Likewise, you are still going to need to know the crossover point and slope....no point in recommending a mid that's only good up to 2khz if the crossover point is 3.5khz @ 6db/oct.....it'll sound like poop.

Also, does the crossover filter have any built in fancy things like a zobel network? That will affect what speakers will and won't work aswell.

Or are the passives going to be custom built?

Lots of things to consider here.
