    I´ve to say the product is wonderful. I chose this model after many simulations to replace the mid-woofers of a pair of Wharfedale AT-500, 2.5 way floorstanding speakers. The result was great. The performance of the speakers improved 300%, great bass extension compared with the previous speakers, good mid-frequencies and presence effect. I just adjusted the hipass filter to better match the wharfedale tweeter with the Dayton DS2015 mid-woofer, and the result is 100!

    They are exact what they said they are, a bass-mid woofer, with a proper enclosure and filters can sounds really great.
