Why did you suggest these? An 8 inch driver seems a bit odd as a midrange driver in a home/hifi loudspeaker. Also, its 97 dB sensitivity seems like a big waste compared to the 91 dB tweeter.

I don't disagree. I would like a tweeter I can cross low and has decent directivity match to the large mid. Do you have recommendation?
I chose the 8" mid because I have heard it and really like the way it sounds. I could try one of the 6" B&C mids which should match directivity with the tweeter better.
I figure with wide baffle and low placement I should have minimal baffle step losses on the woofer, so probably 92-94db.

Or go with a tweeter with a bit more hair on its chest
