If you want bright, I'd start off with some of the now discontinued Fostex drivers (eg, FE126 or FE127), and add a notch filter, replacing the resistor with a variable resistor so you can make some adjustment.

I don't think the Mark Audio drivers will satisfy the need for a bright sound.

FWIW, I occasionally use my 5.1 system(all Mark Audio Alpairs except for wooofers) in 5 channel stereo mode, wherein it plays much louder at the same volume setting than in Dolby DTS, or any of the synthesised modes. Even so, the "small" Alpair 7 & 6s have no trouble filling a 320sq ft room to a very comfortable level.

Chris661 has an excellent point: not only would certain models of Fostex drivers (current FE126En / FE166Enor older FE127E , etc if you can find them) have more of an upwards tilted response hump than the Mark Audios, but they (Fostex) can also demonstrate a very forwardly dynamic (in yer face) presentation that may or not be to your liking.

Note that any of the FExx6 series tend to work best generally in BLH type enclosures when used "full range". In smaller vented boxes they'll have very limited LF response, which can be taken advantage of in a multi-channel application with supporting woofers.

The CHR-70.3 should be commensurate regarding this aspect. I have CHR-70.2 and treble is aplenty.
