    need a high output <7" midrange with LOTS of bass

    a little about my system, currently i have an active setup of cdt hd-6 mids with cdt drt-26silk tweets, powered by an alpine mrv-f345 that puts out around 100rms/channel. as much as i like the clarity of the HD mids i need something that can keep up with my 15" avalanche . ideally i was going to run a 3way system up front but decided that's too much work + money (need for an extra amp and want to run it IB).

    i'm deciding on the xxx mids because i can get around 200rms @ ohm from my amp on channels 3/4, but hear that they don't do too well above 2khz and i don't want to cross my tweets lower than 3.2khz (alpine deck cda-9855 crossover). i can have a slope as steep as 25db/octive. what would be the best choice in midrange for my needs? i want something a bit more bass heavy. i've even considered putting in horns but very little knowledge in that department.

    I wouldn't lowpass any higher than 1.4khz on those XXX -- 4th order -- 1.2 is better ... Dayton RS 7" Does nicely upto 2k -- 1.8khz xover works... however they are rather tricky and you would need a nice EQ -- still you will need a more robust tweeter... so in all you would be after a new component set...

    ok recommend me a pair of 6.5/7" and a tweeter combo to run active. mid wise i would like something in the 2ohm area get the most out of my amp. i have 100rms per tweeter annd 200rms per mid. will even consider horns, prefer not to use ribbon as i heard they are real sensitive to damage

    i would like to although it's not set in stone, i'm one of those people that like to switch out parts every so often plus i like the given control (IE crossover points, setting the gains, especially on the tweeters because i don't like my tweets too loud) you ahve a good set in mind? probably willing to spend about $400 on components and about $250 for the midrange/bass and tweeters, well i'll decide if those are going to need to go too :P

    Biamping is almost useless btw... a few benefits like better control over the tweeter level... clipping won't be present on the tweeter if the midwoofer's amp is clipping more than likely...
