Default wich midrange?

I need a midrange for a 3 way project.

I've come down to these two:


http://www.seas.no/seas_line/woofers/h1216.pdf

http://www.tymphany.com/peerless/data/830882.htm

I have not heard any of them. The Peerless is a bit more expensive but i like the fase plug and the alu short cuircuit ring

Wich should i choose??

Tweeter is Scan-Speak D2905/950000
Woofer is Vifa P21WO-39-08

BCRAZY-

How did you narrow your search down to these two drivers?

The Peerless has better 30degree off respose which would be better when you are not sitting in the sweet spot.

What is this for, a two way, or three way system? If two way, I'd probably choose the Seas due to better LF extension capability. However, I think the older (ie: 850108) Peerless designs may also be good in that respect, and I don't think you'll need to give up the shorting ring if that's a priority.

Rgds,
Paul

OP said 3-way. The Peerless would work fine even with the rising response. You just roll it off early to account for it.

well both of them are modern designs with ventilation below the the spider.

The frequenzy respons is nice and flat, especially the Peerless.
They are both within my price range

I Don't need bigger than 5"

I've been looking at the 4" Peerless http://www.tymphany.com/peerless/data/830881.htm
but it has too low sensitivity.

I like the idea of using a voofer/midrange and cross it over low to the bass. I may mount the bass on the side

I like the looks of the peerless

I'm using the Vifa PL14Wj09-08 (see http://www.tymphany.com/products_Vifa.html)
in the same setup as you're thinking of. It's actively crossed at 135Hz to a side mounted woofer from Seas.
I'm quite happy with the results!

Kind Regards,

Emiel

Oops, I missed the very first sentence about it being a 3 way. I agree, the new Peerless are rather nice looking.
