Dayton Audio RS52AN-8 2" Dome Midrange
Thanks for the response. As a follow up, I have been unable to determine the order of the crossover in this application. I am replacing the mid in the Energy Veritas 2.3. Anyone know if this employs a second order crossover?
This question is best answered directly by Energy Speakers. Also keep in mind that the only way to be assured that you will obtain the same performance as delivered by your factory-new speakers is to replace the midrange driver with an exact replacement from Energy. Otherwise there is likely to be some small variation from the performance of the original driver.

Looking to replace an (8 ohm) aluminum dome mid of comparable size with duties in the 550 Hz-2.0 kHz range. Is this a good fit?
This should work fine for that application as long as the crossovers are at least second order.

Is this a new updated version of this driver? I noticed the Fs and usable response are a little different than the four that I purchased awhile back. I would like to lower my x-over point to 350Hz if possible.
The driver has not changed, however the specification sheet has been updated to reflect the characteristics of current production. Lowering your crossover frequency too aggressively may lead to an increase in measured distortion in that frequency range; dome midrange drivers are like large versions of dome tweeters, and it's usually best to cross over an octave above the resonant frequency to control distortion.

Would this midrange work in towers with 91db efficiency, crossed @ 1.2k and 5k? Right now has a Paradigm soft dome that I dropped in. Might replace with fountek neocd1 or dayton reference soft dome. Will these match up? Thanks
Yes this will work fine in that application.

To run these in an MTM setup would it not help to run 2 12dB bandpass filters... or at least first order xovers? What would be a good frequency split (as Adam H below) What is the lowest frequency Dolby sends to the center? I'd like to put a small woof

Does the RS52AN-8 require it's own sealed enclosure or does the plastic cup on its rear side mean that I can install it direct into the bass enclosure? I want to use it in a 3 way system
The rear of this driver is sealed so it does not require its own chamber.
