    polys, or extremii... although the latter probably isn't cheap to most people.



    Caraudio.com - Where the average member couldn't wire a SPST toggle if they had to.


    More proof.

    I don't think you'd want to run those up to 2.6khz

    yea true but if cross at 2khz at whatever slope, it'll still play 2.6khz .

    my lotus references are crossed at 800hz @ 12db and tweets at 2.5khz @ 12db and it sounded better then when i had the mids crossed at 1.6khz @ 12db. so don't be afraid of gaps.

    thx

    you lookin for midrange, or just woofer from 80-250Hz...then I just cant see any 8" midrange sounding to great....all that cone movement from an 8", along with vocal...better off getting seperate IMO at least thats what im going to do

    Edit...then again ive never heard an 8" woofer used for midrange....just to woof.

    Well thank you for that course in crossovers 101


    I was simply stating that, per the original post, it sounded like he was looking for a driver to be crossed at 2.6khz. Which would exclude the Daytons

    ya '96 i think its a 4th gen

    i really dont wanna spend more than 100$ for 2woofer, ill just change the woofer of my polk component, im fed up with them...tweeter are very nice though.., its just the woofer really doesnt has mid-bass...i feel theres like a huge gap between the sub and mid-range whereas-mid-bass...




    passive crossover is set @2.6khz, so basically i just want to swap !

    then TRY the AA polys. If you don't like 'em, sell them. Mine will be here tomorrow.
