I am currently running a dynaudio esotec 242 which consists of
the md102 tweeter (keeping that!) and a 6.5" midrange/woofer
I'm needing a really great 6.5" or 8" that can play up to 2.2k where my tweets play down to and do it with close to the same vocal accuracy as what I have now. They will be ran active, selling my passive xovers and the mw162's
The midbass is pretty lacking and looking to find a suitable 8" or 6.5" that
can shake my pant leg a bit while maintaining good vocal accuracy.
I was told my current mw162 can take up to 200hrs to break in... I can't wait that long to see. Doors are deadened etc about all I can do already. I had some focal 165v30 anniversary editions and the midbass was pretty decent but I can't buy just the midranges alone. I sent those back because I simply hated the tweeter no matter what I did.
I have considered these:
dynaudio mw172 (8") (can't afford the esotar 6.5")
rainbow kick profi vanadium 6.5"
legatia L8v2 or L8SE 8", even L6 (6.5") if they are decent?
hertz mille ML1600
image dynamics x69 (6x9 midbass)
Have 150w rms for each from a JL600/4
I have pretty large doors depth wise and I think I can get most 8" to fit with a few mods/cutting.
Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.
Thanks in advance to all suggestions!
