View Full Version : 7-8" mid suggestions

05-07-2008, 01:40 AM
i think i messed up one of my mids when drunk one night (i wast driving) just playing to loud for my 60 x/o point. now that i have a job, and after paying for some stuff first like ac and fixing my laptop. im down to buy. budget is around l50-200 for the pair.

wont be buying for a month or so, giving ample time to do research. just looking for some opinions on what to run. at first it will be passive, then when i get a 4ch amp i will go active. x/o for the tweeters is i think 3400 or 3200 i forget.

thanks for any suggestions

AA carbon fibers are available and in that price range....

I would think most speakers that size are really midbass units, an 8" speaker would tend to beam at the upper freq's you are planning on crossing it over at.

dayton for the cheap and will hang with most top dollar stuff

the thing is with the dayton's is they dont go high enough for the 3400 x/o point. and i dont know how long it will be till i go active. but some dls iridium's are looking nice.
