Default What are good 8" drivers for a 2-way?

I am playing with all sorts of ideas but I would like to at least consider some 8" inch designs.

Thank you.

Completely open to that. I assume a more expensive one to get a low enough FS and low distortion to mate with most 8" drivers. Perhaps a Scanspeak illuminator D3004/602010 as it goes low or the Cheaper SB Neo looks good at less than half the price.

I'm considering this SEAS Prestige P21RF with a Scanspeak R2604.

Seas W22EX...the driver SL uses in the Orion. Be sure to use a trap on the breakup.

Thanks you guys. Some great options. The SEAS Prestige P21RF looks like a very economical and nice option. I would want a tweeter that can go low as I need very good off axis response for these.

Seas Excel W22EX and Scan-Speak 6600 should be an awesome combo!

The budget version should be this one: Dayton Reference RS225
