    Switching out the midrange in my focal 136w?

    Hey guys, i need your expert advice. So right now i have focal utopia 136w components... they are 5 1/2 components... they just dont provide enough midrange for my front stage... so i have a few options...
    1) Buy focal 165KPs, the original KPs (not K2p upgraded) and use that component set instead
    2) buy that component set and just use the midrange from that set combined with my utopia tweeter and crossovers
    3) buy the utopia 6w which is basically the midrange that comes with the 165w (the utopia 6.5" compoennets) and just use the 6w with my 136w crossovers and tweeters (tweeters are the same dont know about the crossovers)

    So im leaning toward buying the 6w, but does anyone know if it will work with my setup? are the crossovers different between the two sets? Are they set differently, crossed over differently or somthing of that nature... i want the 6w to hit as low as its meant to... will i achieve this just by "plugging" it in instead of the 5.25 midrange that is there currently? Thanks!!!!!

    oh and another option would be to get the 5ws... its focals 5 3/8s driver that is said to have a 45Hz-2.5kHz response, much better than my 136w set that only goes down to like 125hz without distorting..
