    suggest 6.5's

    what would work good in place of my 6.5 RE's? they don't have as much midbass as i was expecting and the crackle under about 150hz i would like to keep the crossovers and the tweets, cause i don't have the money for a complete new comp set. so i want a decent 6.5 that will sound good crossed over around 80hz-whatever the RE crossover is...

    You need to find out what that LPF crossover point is No point in suggesting a mid that can only play up to 2500hz, if the crossover point is 4khz

    Also need to know your budget, and if the RE crossover has any "special" features built in (such as a zobel network, etc).

    Rip out the crossovers, and build your own

    if i wanted to go that far i'd get another amp, and go active

    crossover point....no clue. but there is nothing special in it, 2 resistors, a cap, and a coil.

    edit:i guess i could measure the components in the crossover and calculate it.
