    midbass: Koda or extemis 8"???

    I am hunting down a strong mid bass driver that will perform great free air in doors. Looking to give it approx 100 watts.

    Is the Extemis better than the Koda?? also which would do better in my doors?

    I will probably hold out and see if SI is going to continue with their SI 8". But still want some thoughts on these two drivers.

    Re: midbass: Koda or extemis 8"???

    Well, the Extremis has quite a bit more displacement than the Koda....so overall midbass output should go to the Extremis. The Extremis may be harder to fit in your doors....quite a bit deeper than the Koda. And keep in mind the Extremis is 8ohm.....so, to give them 100w you'd need a 200w/channel @ 4ohm amp


    EDIT; BTW, just noticed you were looking at 8's, I assumed you were looking at 6.5's, which is the Koda I was talking about. The Extremis is a 6.5" driver, NOT an 8" driver.

    that was a typing mistake. I am looking for a strong 6.5 midbass to add to my DA Hex 5.25 comps.

    I love the midbass on the Koda's, but don't have much experience with other divers

    yeah, but now I can't find anywhere selling Koda's. And it looks like they are discontinued from what I have found. So now I am on the search for another strong midbass driver.

    extremis is out of the question, can't fit it.

    Re: midbass: Koda or extemis 8"???

    Another thing to be noted about the extremis... which may not be a very big deal if they will be low passed low enough.... is that they are EXTREMELY directional, and sound the best so far, directly on axis...

    More proof.

    No, Andy, I'm sure the context is fine.

    Pointed right at your head, the better they are pointed at my ears, the better they sound
