Generally speaking, what are the main T/S parameters you should look at when selecting components? I'm mainly asking about mids here, and wanting a lot of midbass output. How does installation affect what parameters are more important? Or, are T/S parameters pretty much useless when looking at components?

Thanks

Not totally useless. Though, I don't think I've ever seen a manufacturer ever actually list a comp set's T/S params. Normally they just list crap like mounting depth, power handling, driver diameter and such. But, there are a lot of things that can't be determined by the T/S params that make a huge difference in driver performance. Generally, the best thing to do is try to listen to as many sets as you can, and to read as many good reviews as you can of sets that you can't listen to.

^What he said. In my thread, I'm currently going to *try* to link to as many reviews as I can find for later reference.
