from what i remember the xxx mids can't play real high. i think 2khz max or something. not too many compact tweeters can play that low. one of them being the seas lotus tweet. many of large format tweets out there can play very low. dayton and seas have great large format tweets.

for the xxx mids, try to throw as much power as you can afford. i believe those mids are SVC 2 ohm.

i'm looking at pairing mine up with some usher 9950 tweets. i hear they are smooooooooooth tweets and read good things about them. and i believe the xxx mids don't like to be crossed higher than 1200@24db/octave. and that's pushing it to it's limits. and you can throw 150-200rms on each (that's what alot of people are throwing at theirs).

yeah large format tweets would pair good. the seas tweeters also get good reviews (check my sig). and check out madisound.com (great prices)

Might want to find that, there were some suggestions in there.
