    Re: Help me choose mids

    I'd say RS simply because it's a 4 ohm, phase plug driver with nice sensitivity.

    What freq range do you plan on running with them? Why 5"?

    Re: Help me choose mids

    The Dayton RS has better parameters for IB (no enclosure) mounting, a higher X-max, and has a better cone material (aluminum > poly, IME) for transient response.

    The only caveat, is that the RS is a little harder to crossover... there is a breakup peak in the highs, in all aluminum cone drivers, that poly won't have. If you don't feel up to custom-tuning a passive crossover (trap filters to notch out the peak, etc), then the TB will be easier to deal with, with out of the box crossovers...

    Regards,
    Gordon.

    Re: Help me choose mids

    Just curious...why are you going to run 3-ways? I'm in the same spot but dont have the crossover to do it yet...

    My vote goes to the Dayton reference though.

    These look pretty nice for $55 shipped. Kind of deep though.

    What kind of amp or amps are you using? The way I read that you need 6 channels for the front and a sub amp.

    Re: Help me choose mids

    Then you should be set. You could even have 50wx2 for rear fill if you wanted.

    Re: Help me choose mids

    Those are great, but I thought you needed 5.25"? The AAs are 6.5" and really deep.
