    $200 to spend on 8" Midbass!

    Setup is in my sig. Recently put those Pioneers in as midbass and fed em 125wrms each and they POUND! now i want moar!!!

    can someone recommend a pair of 8" midbass drivers that can be had for 200 or less.

    will be playing no higher than 350hz and want them to play low enough to make me forget a sub
    like stated, I have 125wrms on tap for either 2 or 4 ohm midbass drivers.

    cant do the Peerless SLS cuz its 8ohm
    Looked at The dayton RS225 but ppl over on diyma said its not well suited for IB in car doors. So i need something that will work IB (high QTS)

    keep in mind this build is more SQ oriented than SPL!!!

    my Pioneers midbasses are punchy though but with the power I'm pushing to em if I'm really cranking it, they dont like to be crossed below 63hz which is **** good for 6.5s. But I'm looking to find an 8 that will go even lower.

    i wouldnt need the NS6, already have midrange covered. But do you have any specs on thsoe RE8s?

    I thought about those too but if I'm gonna do the extra work to make deeper 6.5s fit I might as well just do 8s
