    Okay Bwap, you're up. What is the difference between mid-bass and midrange? According to a major speaker supplier their are subwoofers, woofers, full range, midrange and tweeters?

    so if my tweeters are crossed at 2.5k does that make them mid-tweeters?

    Re: 8" midrange in the front?

    Just an example.

    A real mid bass is strong when most mid ranges are weak. Any good mid bass driver will out do the best midrange in the low end.

    Re: 8" midrange in the front?

    Isn't it difficult to get two midbass woofers facing each other in phase?... Anyway that is not an option, I guess I will have to look for an 8" woofer with a demodulating ring so it will be smooth in the higher hz. Is there anything else I should be looking for?

    Also if anyone could recommend a setup with crossovers and such that would work well in my situation, I would appreciate it.

    My situation:

    Power to work with(front only): 150@4x2 / 300@2x2

    Want to run 8" midrange and a silk dome tweeter and/or a supertweeter.
    I want good sound quality but also want to utilize as much power as possible.(amp has low %thd at 2 ohms)
    Seeing as there aren't any component sets to choose from, crossovers will be needed as well.
    Id prefer to stay away from iron core inductors in the crossovers as I read that they are less SQ.

    Looking to spend about $200+/-

    I don't know if your trying to be witty or I am reading you wrong, but there is a difference between mid-bass and midrange.. look it up.

    Not interested in anymore discussion on that topic...

    In that price range you want to go PA. I'm a SQ guy but I don't mind the sound of the DD VO series stuff. It's the only PA I would ever run besides the $$$$ Hertz SPL show stuff.

    Re: 8" midrange in the front?

    @ddtc You seem like you may know an answer to another of my questions.

    I have been considering wiring a supertweeter on a switch in paralell, so when I open the doors I can drop the ohms and raise the output while adding the distance effect of the supertweeter. Say im wiring a component set that is 4 ohms and crossed at 5k. When I switch the supertweeter on, the impedance the amp sees would drop.

    Would the crossover point of the component set change because of the change of impedance on the line?
