    Sounds good. These are pretty loud. I was using pretty aggressive EQ in order to tame the midrange and create a warmer balance but drums are just awesome.

So to start a thread simply to state that clipping does not hurt speakers is, again, a half-truth at best.

    they only thing i lack now is a very strong up front 60 to 80hz range. i can't really blame the 6.5s they are IB. i can be good balance but it take a good deal of output away..

    That's the trick I was pulling with these. I basically put a tilted response on them in favor of the low end, giving up the overall sensitivity in favor of a warmer powerful sound. They take power really well and stay punchy.

    Yep, they're pretty good in that respect. Especially with an asymmetrical slope setup. Steep slope on the 8" and shallow slope on the midrange you mate it with. That will help offset any minor shortcomings you experience with off axis performance of the 8" in the neighborhood of 1.6k.
