So I'm going active now and I was thinking about upgrading from the Ologyaudio Dayton RS component set (6" Dayton RS Mids, 1 1/8" Dayton RS Tweeters). What would be a good set of 6-6.5" mids and tweets to match to my 880prs and MTX Thunder 564 (about 70rms x 4 @ 4 ohms, 140 x4 @ 2 ohms)? One big thing I'm looking to get more of is midbass and low midrange. I also want a good set of tweeters that are better than the daytons to match the mids, I'm thinkin 1 1/8" again but definitely something with a magnet that isn't nearly as monstrously huge as these RS tweets so I can mount them on my door panel somewhere. I'm looking to spend around $300 but I suppose I could go higher than that, I know absolutely nothing about the world of active drivers. Any input would be great, thanks for the help guys.

All things active.

If you're looking for more midbass than the RS180s, then for the money, you probably want to look at Seas.

With proper install you should be getting decent midbass out of those current 180s. How do you have them currently installed?

I have them installed in the door, sound deadened and sealed up and they do have decent midbass, I just want more :up2somet:. And with that link, are you referring me to the forum? There's only 1 item on the shop page :laugh:.

Yeah, the forum.

It's got a ton of reviews, advice and commentary mainly on active setups.
