Default Best lower midrange ?

Iam looking for the best midrange driver money can buy !
It should be running in the area 120hz - 1250 hz.
8" - 10" and higher than 92db in sensivity.

Any suggestion ?

Today I use one ScanSpeak 21w/8554 with double magnet and slided spider plus moved away the center dome. Its stting in dipole setup with active filter 24 db/LR.

Greets!

'Best' is at best a 'moving target', which you haven't completely defined, so based on my parameters: http://www.rlacoustique.com/reps1.htm If it doesn't make enough low distortion SPL in the desired BW, buy more since cost is no object.

PHL2460: FS of 90Hz, ruler flat FR up to 3KHz and
93-96db sensitivity. Sounds very good to me but of course
this depends if you like more the mids of a good paper
cone as I do or if you like the sound of very rigid
membrans more.

It doesn't model very well near the lower end of the desired passband, unless he's going to build/buy a horn for it.

If a 12" driver was viable, the JBL 2206 would be a good choice except the 45-degree off-axis response is down by about 4dB at 1200Hz (may or may not be a good thing).

The jbl 2012H is close, but would need to be crossed around 200Hz..

This beyma looks cool, again x-max is low so may need to be crossed higher.

Why not a 4" or 5" Fostex full-range from the FF - FX - FE Sigma series ?
