Like the Eminence CX10 and the CX12. The 10 sounds better in the mids than the 12 but the 12 has audibly better LF and so sounds 'fuller' . But I guess you can eq all drivers to sound similar. Wonder if the mids would sound different then ?

I Think the problem are the THD of the Chassis. A smaller Mid-Driver for Open-Baffle must have more Xmax. The Xmax of the Alpha6a is small for a 6-incher in Open-Baffle. So you will drive it in higher THD than a equal 8-incher as same dB. The bigger the cone the less can Xmax be. Some people like more k2 as to see in Tube-Amps. But is it what we want?

Sorry for my english, I hope you understand....
Best Regards
