Default OB driver help

I want to build a pair of ob's. I have a pair of alpha 15's and may go with 4 total. The drivers I need help with are the midrange. I would like to try a larger size driver than i've used in the past. 8-12 in but i cant spend 500 bucks on a set. I listen to a wide variety of music types so I want something that is not suited for vocals and acoustic guitar only. I dont like shouty in your fave drivers but i do want them to sound natural and detailed.

Do they exist???

My favorite is the Eminence Beta 12lta (cut out the dust cap and add a phase plug). On OB with a tweeter and Alpha 15s in H-frames the sound is extremely natural from top to bottom. I'm sure there are other very good drivers out there that are larger than 8" for OB to consider.
