Default Best Highe End Mid Range Speakers

I know there are tons out there, ie... Focal utopia, Morel, Vifa etc... But i have only heard the focal utopia's. OK not great..

Would love to hear your comments on what you think is the best natural sounding mid's on the market.. despite price. James

ATC 3" super linear dome mid. almost 400 UKGP and they are big, really f*king big. If I could get a set in my car I probably would.

C-Quenze by audioTechnology of Denmark I have a set of ther 6" midbasses. Are you looking for Mids or Midbass? how low do you want to go. From you post I presumed you would only need to go down to 500 or 300Hz, with a mid and you would have a seperate midbass for the lower stuff, 3 way fronts in effect.

the DLS Iridium 3-ways components are very nice set. It has very smooth, natural mids and highs. My friend had the whole DLS setup in his 4runner.

Default DLS Iridium

Thanks for your reply's. The DLS Iridium sounds like a good choice. According to what i have read, these are similar to the Dynaudio's... Any thoughts on the 2-way set. I think the installation of a 3-way set could be a problem? Thanks, James

There are lots of nice speakers out there. Differences in high end stuff can be very subtle so it's best to listen and judge for yourself. Unfortunately it's impossible to hear them all in real installations, and the install makes all the difference. The best speakers in a poor installation will not sound as well as mediocre speakers in a great installation.

That said, just about any component set that costs $400 or more will be a great speaker. Personally, I like the Boston Acoustics Z Series. Their midrange is the most natural and transparent of the speakers I've heard. MB Quart's Q Series is also excellent, though some people don't like the bright tweeters. Both are in the $1000 range. JL Audio's high end (XR? ZR?) are also excellent.

Don't overlook Kicker's new SS Series either.. they're getting rave reviews and they can be had for under $400 on eBay. If you can get past the funky grille design.
