Default the best mid-woofer?

I want to start building my diy project ,a BMTMB combination,using excellent drivers,dynamics,transparency,capable to play very loud.
Which driver do you suggest?I think of peerless HDS134,or 182.Are the scanspeaks 15w..,or 18w.. much better?
ANY commercial loudspeakers using these peerless units?I already know many using scanspeaks.

I would just look at a 2-way with the SS 18W/8531, and the tweeter of your choice, either the revelator, or possibly seas millenium, or maybe a Raven.

This should play pretty darn loud, and should have lots and lots of bass.

--BMTMB combination

Money is no object right

Here goes;

B = Lambda TD15H
M = PHL 2520 8" midrnage
T = SA8535 stage accompany planar (settle for Esg1)
M = PHL 2520 8" midrange
B = Lambda TD15H

Estimated cost US;

Two SA8535 tweeters = $1200
Four PHL 2520 midrange = $700
Two TD15H = $400 (apollo version $800)

$2300 / pair (apollo version $2700)

Money is an object

If you heard one SA8535 + one PHL 2520 + one TD15H,
it would knock your socks off. It would sound like a live
performance provided that you give each driver some
power. This simple 3 way rules. Cost = $1950 / pair

Non Dr. Insano idea
See bottom of page.

"ESg3 / PHL3451 / Lambda SB12"

The best mid in the world IMHO is the ATC SM75-150S soft dome, mate this with a Seas Millenium tweeter, and maybe the Volt RV3143 woofer, and you would have a system to knock your socks off. Not cheap, but very very good.
