    The Peerless SLS 8 is the best 8" midbass money can buy

    And I challenge you to prove me wrong. Conditions...because we all know "best" is subjective...

    1) State the market price of the pair of drivers you think are better. Used internet prices don't count.

    2) State the location, passband, and slope the drivers are playing as well as any EQ work done to them.

    3) Post picture of the deadening job done within at least 2' of each speaker. I'm assuming most are door installs, but could be different.

    And just so you know, this is the driver in question.

    That is all. Have a nice day......

    You think you're better than me!!?!?!

    Don't have to be no door install. As you know, I have trouble with 4" drivers in my kicks.

    You consider them better than the exclusive's then. Are you talking 3-way, and
    what crossover point?

    8" midbass. I'm pretty sure he means dedicated midbass.

    i wouldn't run above 350hz to these 8's.

    above that would go to good midranges

    Hmm, Ive never heard these, too bad they are 8 ohm as well. I dont have enough power

    And i think those would do fine above 350 as well..

    Many people use 2-3" dome/cone midranges.
