Read my mind. Excellent value for a very good component set.

Is it strong in the mid-bass, because that is what I am looking for and at $95 bucks that is cheap.

No, sorry - midbass is definitely not a strong point of the Reference speakers.

What kind of power are you working with?

The guy said under 100 bucks ... as far as the mid bass... its really personal taste, youll have to listen to them then decide..

Don't have an amp yet. I will try to match the upper number on the RMS rating. Have like $400 to spend on comps and amp.

Not a NEED a WANT. It is just a little lacking. Good highs, good bass, it's just the mid region that is lacking a little. And if their were no need for mid bass everyone would be driving around with sub and tweeters and nothing else.;)

Any suggestions

If you have $400 to spend on the comps and the amp for them:

CDT CL-61a - http://www.thezeb.com/caraudio/CDT_Audio_Components.html
US Acoustics 2080 - http://www.thezeb.com/caraudio/us_acoustics.html

The total will be $232.98, with free shipping, leaving you $$ left over for wires, kick panels, or whatever.

Ok i just found some universal kick panels on the zeb, but how well will they fit and how do you install them? they also say they only hold up to a 6.25", any way to fit a 6.5" in their.

I'm not a big fan of pre-fab kick panels...they are made out of plastic and aren't as durable as fiberglass ones...and you can't aim the speaker where you want in order to get the best imaging...which is basically the purpose of kick panels....

Check around some local shops, you should be able to get them made for around 200-250...or you can make them yourself, it's not as hard as you think....check the Fiberglass Links Sticky for some tutorials....
