Dayton Audio RS52AN-8 2" Dome Midrange
Greetings, I'd like to cross my Aurum Cantus AC180/50F1 7" woofer to this midrange driver as low as possible (500hz). Is this do-able? If so what type of X-O would you recommend (configuration and order)? If 500 is too low, any recommendations?
This driver is rated for frequency response down to 300 Hz. By the manufacturer's specifications sheet shown in the manuals and resources section above, it appears to have a very even response down to 500 Hz.

Would this mid range blend well with your st 255-8 10 inch woofer? I ask because it's very small compared to a 10 inch and most mid ranges are 4 to 5 inches.
I'am thinking of using the prv audio 6mb 300 6'1/2 midrange with the sealed back. Would this work well. i'll be using your pre built 200 watt 800/4500 8 ohm cross over

In my three way speakers I have an Eminence cross over at 500 hz and 5khz. Will this work well with this Dayton Audio RS52AN-8 2" Dome Midrange? The woofer is a Dayton 12" and the tweeter a 1 inch Polk silk dome.
Yes this midrange will work fine with those crossover frequencies.

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.
