I had PMC IB1's that had Vifa's that look like(and probably are) those and sounded great with a good X-over.

I think PMC now uses Volt VM752 midranges but they are even more expensive than ATC.
Over here the ATC non 's' costs £270, the Volt £450!

"Absolute best" is very tough to define

Do you need something with a lot of power handling? Off-axis response requirements?

Another brand I'd put up there with ATC and SS is a company called Hybrid Audio Technologies...they were started by someone in the high-end car stereo world, but their stuff also does really well at home
