Better midrange but worse mid bass than the paper versions for both the MW16 and MW19.

Looks like the trade offs make it a side grade, not upgrade.
Looks like a substantial upgrade, plus the new material allows all kinds of ribbon and AMT tweets to be used .

SB has recently raised prices across most of their line, including the Textreme by about 15%. Just plain arrogance, or just evil. I dunno.

Well, if it really was SB, more people will buy Scan Speak...probably use the excuse of COVID which may or may not be 100% true!??

So far, SB is the only one I'm noticing increases, oldspkrguy. You're fortunate to have snagged two 5" before the increase.

But there is no alternative to SB Textreme in the entire SS line up, those are all soft cones, hard cones from SS are exclusively woofers, not midrange or midwoofers.

Exactly
Paper might break up nicer, but it start way earlier.

To me it looks like the paper version of the RS225, start breaking up already at 700hz compared to alu, that start loosing it around 1900hz.
I'd much rather have a more pistonic driver and then dampen the breakup with EQ, than paper. But maybe the Textreme is a nice cocktail from both worlds. I believe that the smoother but clear breakup of paper, earlier in the FR, might be what makes them sound "warmer" to some.

Yes, I am hoping the TexTreme is the best of compromises. I have plenty of drivers larger and smaller; 5 inch would make things simpler for me if it does what I hope it does.

Hifi compass MW19TX-4 frequency response measurement very different from SB. Kind of disappointed about this as the midrange rise on SB graph wd have been very useful Assume hifi compass test is v accurate.
Has anyone else measured this model yet?

Looked so much on the textreme, but cant find a smaller dedicated midrange version - yet. So I bought a Dayton RS125 for my 3 way mains.... now this is smooth for a cheap alu driver:
