Hey guys im looking to do a 3 way setup and need some help on equipment

I have the hybrid imagine 6.5 inch woofers (have tweeters too but one of em blew so I bought a new set)
rainbow cal 25 silk slc tweeters
crescendo concerto 1100.4 amp
PPI black ice bk800.4 amp

I want some advice on good 2 or 3 inch midrange drivers I cant decide on what to get

not looking to spend more than $150-ish MAX

so far im looking at

the cadence zrs2m
ZRS2M - Cadence Sound Store (http://www.cadencesound.com/products/ZRS2M)

the cdt es-02 midrange/tweets

the cdt hd-2

what else would you guys recommend?

im looking for something that sounds great and realistic will get loud enough for to keep up with my 1500 watts of subwoofer and my Imagine speakers

In my opinion(biased, of course) it's hands down the CDT ES-02s. I haven't heard the others suggested but I have a lot of listening time on those drivers and they are gorgeous. I'm using the ES-020s, which have these mids in sealed pods. These will really step it up for midrange clarity and realism when used in a 3-way configuration.

If you want something of good value, consider Dayton's RS100, which is a 3 inch midrange. Dayton also has a 2inch dome base midrange (think of it as a laaarge tweeter). These are considered decent, though I personally would have preferred not to use the 2inch mid in a car unless it is mounted right next to the midbass, for imaging considerations.
