my budget it about 50 bucks per speaker and this is the sound i want, punchy, clear at high volumes, accurate, live.
i dont wannt any real laidbackness or muddyness. i want it to really be alive.

Don't forget Vifa P13-WH-00, an all time DIY fave

and Seas metal cone like the L15 or L12 (the L15 is really good but you have to work the crossover right)

If you want a little excitement, consider Peerless 850488. Vifa P13WH is a bit more accurate in terms of response curve but exhibits more distortion. So I guess it's less accurate in that manner.

Your call.

ok well since its been so long some thigs have changed. heres my new situation, i need something to run wel off 50 watts. im running my tweeters and midrange off 1 amp now, and tweets are 4 ohm. so i want something that hopefully fiarly effecient so i dont have to back off my gains a hole lot for the tweeters.

my max is around 70-80 dollars per speaker.
sound quality is of most importance. and still 4-5.5 inch for size.
it would be nice if they put out some midbass becuase i will not have my midbass speakers running for a couple months after this. i gave my brother my peerless midbass for some reasons.
this is going in kickpannels. vented or unvented doesnt matter. size doesnt really matter becuase if my kickspannels arent big enough ill make new ones

thanks for your helo im checking out your current sugjestions right now.

There's a minor peak in the driver's upper response, which others say gives it a little "pizazz". And IMHO the Peerless looks more attractive than the plain-Jane Vifa P13.
