Looking for a good midbass in the 4" region......special application...

Not looking to spend much over $150

Listen to 97% Rap/ Hip Hop

Ugh. Tough. Phoenix Golds... http://www.ikesound.com/product-product_id/3850

Only 26 bucks...but if you want any bass, they are gonna need to be amp'd.

PG is of course the forum boner... there's also some Alpine..... http://www.ikesound.com/product-product_id/4418

According to Alpine specs..these respond down to 50hz, with 92db/w sensitivity.
The PG's cutoff on low end is 100hz, and only 89 db/w sensitivity.

Rap/hip hop is not an extremely demanding midbass application...

they will be amped with 100 wrms each

may be asking too much, but I would like to keep the round profile like 5.25's and 6.5s have

also, I am looking for mainly a midbass rather than a coaxial

MB quart has a good reputation for quality.

But you gotta work with what you got.

The MB Quarts are very nice...and for a 4" very good quality...I'm speaking for the original German versions...I have a set BNIB of the MB Quart German made componets I've been trying to decide what to put them in.....right now I don't have anything for them :(

I will be doing another 6.5 in my doors, but I have a spot I can fit a 4" mid, and in a couple cars I have sat in, I really liked how their 4" mid sounded.........just don't recall what brands/models they were :(

These look nice for the price... http://www.madisound.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=684&osCsid=0992979013384c3d6a7bfa5a3b89f83a

I like the midbass output of my DLS R4s, but you'd have to buy the component kit to get a pair.

those pg's are garbage fo real. I had the 4x6's they dont need an amp and can't handle it anyways.

The alpines wont be much better.

Infinity kappa 4" 2 ways or dls ps4 2 way components would be my recommendation.

If you are looking for strictly midbass' like you said and not full component sets check out madisound.com. I would look specifically at the seas prestige 4.5's.

In all honesty though, no speaker under 5-6" is going to have adequate midbass for any acceptable volume.

Mb quart has 4" component sets if you like very lively and also very detailed tweeters.

So then you want a midrange, not a midbass, yes?

correct. I can imagine what some people do with large cabinet designs on small drivers.

I was REALLY liking those Peerless until I saw the fs of 73 :(

^^^^^that's really not even that bad compared to most 4" drivers lol.

You are 100% correct........ me > *******

Then an Fs of 73Hz means nothing if you're crossing over at 2 or 300Hz anyway :)

If you are looking for a midrange, I wouldnt be too concerned with a fs of 73hz. IMO of course.

Edit: too late.
