either will work. one will cost you less.

RW165, if you want the cleanest possible midbass.

L18RNX, if you want a little more "natural" lowend extension (but youll need more power).

both will want over 100 RMS either at 4 or 8 ohms.

What's wrong with the performance mids you have right now?

Honestly, if money is a factor, I would go with the L18RNX. The difference between the RW165 and the L18RNX is mute in the midbass department when looking at the price tag.

Now if it was midrange we're talking about, then the decision would be a bit harder. For midbass, who cares. I doubt RW165 will sound that much better than the L18 anyways. :)

The RW165 struggles with low end extension. If you have the power then go with the L18s. RS180 would not be a bad choice either and if you can somehow fit it, the RS220 would be the best choice. I've always been of the opinion that if you want to upgrade, might as well go the extra mile.
