View Full Version : Going mad with Mid choices

09-14-2006, 01:38 AM
So I have a handful of choices on mids but I can't seem to make a choice... just looking for opions, especially ones backed up with experience....

I'm moving up from Dayton RS180's after my brother in laws dog destroyed one of them... This time they are getting grills... they will be matched with a Dayton RS28a, running active with 75w @ 4ohms from a NExt Q.55... here's my choices (some are used on various classifieds, some are zalytron and 6spdcoupe for rainbows)

CDT HD-6 mids - $130
Focal 7 C 4251 Mid - $80 + ship
Rainbow CMX mids - $189 Shipped (with grills!)
Rainbow CS260P comp set (will sell tweets and xovers) - 150 + ship
Another RS180 - $32 + ship
Focal Access 7C - $80 + ship

Ohh and every dollar over $100 is going to hurt but I won't be going w/o food spending $200.... **** decisions

Well my choice just got a whole lot easier... my $160 break job turned into $420 when I needed new calipers and rotors... seeing how they where original equipment on my 167k 4Runner thery held up pretty well.... looks like a replacement of my RS180 is the only choice now...

I imagine long term I'll get a second amp to send more power to the mids (at 8 OR 4 ohms) and go 3-way but it'll be quite awhile... I'm getting married in 4 months...
