    If you want strong midbass, you could try to focus on sub to midbass integration instead IMO

    That's something I need to put more focus on. When I recently tried to help a friend tune his setup, the only solution I was able to come up with at that moment was to raise the xo point of the sub to compensate. After reading Markz's post on individual speaker xo parameters, I think that might lead the way to get centered MR and MB.

    Maybe you can tell me why I need or want custom biquad filters in the process.

    I, too, have had issues getting a 2 way to sound to my liking. Either good midbass and breaking up/screetching midrange or great midrange clarity and lack of midbass. The sub integration can and does play a part tho as mentioned. I have since went to a 3 way and seem to have eliminated that problem now. That is now that I replaced the Hertz midranges with Scanspeak 10f drivers. I've only had them for a day and about 1 hour of play time so far (tuned twice now too) but so far I am impressed. Can't wait until they break in to see what they can really do too.

    Because they're twice as good as regular ol' quad filters?
