    Recommend me a 6.5 driver with the Blaupunkt Vc100 tweeter!

    I am in the process of picking out a fresh new 2 way set of tweets/mids to run active with my CDA-9887. Right now I have the CDT ES-600 midrange ran active, and I absolutely love it. Really the only thing that I am not happy with is the lack of midbass from the rainbow driver. Right now I have the cal 20 rainbow tweeter.

    My AMP is a Memphis Big Bell 75x4 @ 4, 115x4 @ 2.

    I was looking to get the germaniums/profi line(w/o crossovers), and I did not mind spending $300 or so to accomplish this. I was looking to get something like the cal 25, and Nismos14 had told me a week or two ago that the Blaupunkt Vc100 tweeter is very comparable.

    I think I will end up buying the Blaupunkt Vc100 tweeter, however what is a good midrange that will match this tweeter?

    I am not looking to be cheap in any way, however I do like to manage my money and get good value for what I purchase. As said I was going to get the germaniums/profi's, and honestly going with a tweeter from Blaupunkt for like $40 does sound "FISHY", but the hell with it I am willing to give it a shot. I dont mind buying used equipment, I actually prefer it.

    Which 6.5 driver would you recommend for my 92 civic doors? I only have about 2.75 in depth though with the windows rolled down...ehh

    This is the location to where I have my Rainbow Cal 20 tweeters now see pic... Its in the dash.




    What do you guys think. I listen to pretty much everything you can listen to. I would say rap/rock mostly though.

    If you treasure your mid-bass, the MLI's will deliver...

    How much depth are you working with?



    I'm right. I'm always right. Even when I'm wrong, I'm right.

    really?!?!? they are THAT good?

    i'm just wondering if they would be a step up from my RSD mids.

    anybody used both?

    i guess i could try them and if i don't like them i could sell them.

    Well I need a mid that can do more than just midbass, a good midrange too.

    well apparently the mli's have really good mid-bass, and the midrange is sorta mellow. but myself i am realizing that i prefer a laid back or mellow mid-range. but the mli's do extend up plenty high. they can be run up to 4k w/o a problem.

    here is a nice write up on the mli's paired with alpine type-x tweets. this is from a very good source, this guy seems to know his stuff. they sound VERY VERY promising. i am tempted to grab a pair even though i have no reason to.

    Im still looking for a Mid that would be better than the CDT ES-600(Worth aboutu $200ish), Its a good driver, and I do really like it, but I figure I would see whats out there.
