    Re: Midrange Vs Midbass

    The answer depends on whether you're going to use a sub or not.

    Midrange is made to play at higher frequencies, which would be best for blending with your tweeters.

    Midbass plays lower, but is likely to not blend with your tweeters as well.

    (Edited because I hit post reply before I was finished.)

    I am going to used 2 kicker l7 15" dual 4ohm.
    But why the components used a midbass instead midrange?

    Midbass plays lower, but if you're using subwoofers the mids (bass or 'range) should be high passed anyway so they dont muddy the bass from your subs.

    Most people cross them over to play from around from 80hz up to 100hz, so having mids that can play lower (like midbasses can) arent necessary.

    As long as it can play down to 60 - 80hz, you should be fine.

    Its more important to get a mid that can play cleanly up to the tweeter, as the soundstage depends completely on the mid and tweeter blending well.

    80hz - 100hz is certainly midbass territory.

    The OP needs a driver that can encompass both the midrange and midbass frequency ranges.....what most people just identify with the term "mid" or "midwoofer". You can argue that this is simply semantics.....but I would disagree. He'll be confused as he progresses if he thinks that 80hz - 100hz is considered "midrange" territory.


    What size driver are you looking for ? There are plentiful options of both 6.5" and 5.25" drivers that can adequately play the midbass and midrange frequency bands.

    Read my post.

    What you have is a dedicated midrange. You need a speaker that can cover both the midrange and midbass frequency ranges if you want to stay with a 2-way front stage.

    So we need to know your budget, and what speaker size (I'm presuming 6.5")

    I was thinking he would be buying a comp set and just biamping that, where a listed frequency down to 80hz isnt unheard of, but you may be right, he might be thinking of buying seperate components and putting it together himself.

    Re: Midrange Vs Midbass

    so would it be bad to have a component set 2way then by some mid range dome cause that is my plan in my setup to run a 3 way.

    I wouldn't get dome mids unless the component set you are purchasing comes with a dedicated midbass driver. You would be better off buying a comp set that uses a smaller mid ( 4") and then adding on a dedicated midbass
