    Dicision between Morel or Koda 8"

    I need a good quality mid bass... have subs (10's now movig to 12's), and componets (5 1/4 infinities)... I listen to punk/rawk/sublim/hendrix stuff... but still listen to dance for the drives to the bar...

    Morel Pors: smaller depth
    Cons: $418 a pair 200rms,

    Koda 8 : pros : $112 (canadian)
    Cons: depth , and thinking i need a box for it

    other stuff,, i dont know about sound quality of either, will be crossing around 70-80 and crossing around 250.. want it strong threw this range to hit tom drums and mid tones

    The depth and money are not huge issues but im looking for great SQ fill in that frequency range.. if any one has any experiance please help make this decision easier...My subs will bue around 1000 rms so i dont want thes mids washed out either.

    Re: Dicision between Morel or Koda 8"

    where are these going? in boxes? in a door? where? ...... the morel has very low excursion... the RE XXX is worth looking at -- it is a smaller driver but not a slacker... Dayton RS 8"... 8 ohm -- get 2 per side for the low price that they are would be nice... wants a box though... large mounting depth req.

    of those 2 though I'd go with the koda...

    you want to use them up front if possible... I was talking about the RE XXX 6.5"... it is one hell of a 6.5" though... an inch of excursion *drivvel*

    I love the way morels sound, but my Crossfire X6's just sound incredible. You might also look at focal.

    Re: Dicision between Morel or Koda 8"

    the wr-8s, ill be leaving in my front componet set, Im just looking for some stronger mids/lows so that there isnt a gap between my speakers and my sub... also i saw CDT EF-8. im not looking to use these as a sub becuase my subs willl take over probably around 70 and my highs around 200 ,,, are there also better cross over points...

    ...... I almost have to recommend you sell you component sets and start over by making kicks or speaker pods... or at least reinforcing your door panel and doing a little cutting -- I'm in the process of making a *very* high fidelity 2way that is meant to be actively highpassed at a minimum of 150hz... 300hz would be ideal... the RE XXX midbass would be the IDEAL midwoofer for the job... a 5" 2way turned into a 3 way by having 4 channels of amplification for the fronts alone... Use the head unit's highpass and time alignment... lowpass the XXX drivers actively and highpass the Seas MP 5" 2 way set actively... Eventually I will have a passive 3way using the XXX and the seas MP14RCY/P and the dayton RS28... as well as just the basic XXX/Dayton RS 2way... I need to take measurements of the XXX first though...
