    Comparable to DLS IR3? Looking into high end midranges for 3way active.

    I've been running my DLS IR3's for a few years now and love them. But as this last set is starting to wear out and go bad I'm considering other directions. These IR3's were run approx 600hz up to about 5khz off a clean 50wrms. Amp is my ppi art ax606.2 w/ a very flexible 3 way xover. I think my re xxx mids are cut around 250-300hz on the top side but I'd have to go and double check. Wouldn't mind a 4in mid range that goes a little lower with ease and would blend with my upper mid bass end better.

    Would like to find some other dome speakers, as domes seem to be more forgiving when it comes not being perfectly on axis, but notholdingmy breath. Still open to traditional cone speakers. Doubtful I can find a 2 ohm driver but that would be sweet to get more power of out my amp.

    Or maybe a less expensive but stil decentl quality driver that I can run two at 2ohms?

    What do you guys recommed in that price range, say $250ish

    Where do you have your mids installed now and where are they aimed?
