im not looking at loudness im looking at the resolution and super details and open mids. I am not looking at hurting mids.

I agree that we really do not need too much of power for mids.

I used wavecor wf16 driver which was very good for midrange and very weak for bass.

The main noticed parameter vc ind = 0.16 which is rare for 6 1/4 drivers.

there is another vifa Ne driver with .08 mH which might still give decent transients but I have a gut feeling that if a driver can perform well as full range then it will be very good for midrange as we are using a portion of its full ability. I see alot of midrange has some sort of rolloff when it reaches 4k and moreover im looking in time domain...

where waterfall plot matter alot that how fast its decaying...

I dont have any prob using the mid a db or two lower than the bass or tweet so that it can fit well...

my question is..

Iam looking for these for the mids which one would you recommend me

1. Fostex 126
2. vifa ne 5.5 inch midbass
3. wavecor 5.5 inch

since I have a wavecor i can say for mids they are very good so thought to use them only as only midrange than anything else but still there is rolloff at 4khz..

what do you recommend in the above..

Additional plus for those who are tired of black cones
