I'd say RS simply because it's a 4 ohm, phase plug driver with nice sensitivity.

What freq range do you plan on running with them? Why 5"?

The Dayton RS has better parameters for IB (no enclosure) mounting, a higher X-max, and has a better cone material (aluminum > poly, IME) for transient response.

The only caveat, is that the RS is a little harder to crossover... there is a breakup peak in the highs, in all aluminum cone drivers, that poly won't have. If you don't feel up to custom-tuning a passive crossover (trap filters to notch out the peak, etc), then the TB will be easier to deal with, with out of the box crossovers...

Regards,
Gordon.

Just curious...why are you going to run 3-ways? I'm in the same spot but dont have the crossover to do it yet...

My vote goes to the Dayton reference though.

how you planning to cross everything? the 9855 doesn't have the full capability of running a 3 way front stage

These look pretty nice for $55 shipped. Kind of deep though.

What kind of amp or amps are you using? The way I read that you need 6 channels for the front and a sub amp.

Then you should be set. You could even have 50wx2 for rear fill if you wanted.

Those are great, but I thought you needed 5.25"? The AAs are 6.5" and really deep.
