Default Suggestion of a Midrange drivers

I need help choosing a midrange driver for my speaker building project of 2009. Any suggestion of a good midrange. ScanSpeak, Accuton, Eton, Dynaudio, etc

Right now, I have these speaker drivers in 8ohms.

pair Dyaudio T330D
pair ScanSpeak 18W/8531G00 mid-woofer
four ScanSpeak 22W/8857 woofers

have you considered a high-end full range speaker? e.g. the Markaudio Alpair10FR

I recommend the Tang band 3" titanium driver. True, the manufacturer is not in the same league as Scanspeak, but they are really great drivers. Detailed but not harsh.

FWIW, I have Scanspeak 15W revelators in my home theater setup. There is a reason they are in the home theater rather than in my stereo setup.

Hi

Another option, to remain with silk dome and paper wf can be SEAS CA12RCY . Gentle filtered this nice midwf is a classic. Sound good and easy IMO.

Cheers,
Paolo

Care to give us that reason in more detail?

I listen to a lot of female vocalists. When I am seriously listening, (with my eyes closed and nice glass of wine in my hand) singers like Souxsie Sioux do not sound quite right on larger midranges or two-way speakers. If I am even slightly distracted, like when watching a movie, I never notice the imperfections.

I have recently seen a test of this ATD:
http://www.hifisound.de/oxid/oxid.ph...K--KOHLEFASER/
It is originally built as a mini midwoofer with low Fs, but has good sensitivity due to its high Qms / low Qes. Figures are somewhat different than given in this shop.
More value for money is simply impossible.

jupiterjune,

Are your 15W's raw paper or treated? A friend treated his 18W's and found them to be a better, more refined listen.

FWIW I have 18W's [raw] in my mains and even the CSS FR125 is nicer with female vocals than the 18W, which I find to be somewhat nasally.

Hi,

Do you have tested that Alpair10? It seems very promising.......

Cheers,
