Visaton W200S-4 8" Woofer with Treated Paper Cone 4 Ohm
Vented as a mid?
Ok where to start?I purchased 2 of these to replace some 8" infinity paper woofers that were being used in the 750-3000hz range as mids.The mids "these Visatons" are on top of the tweeter and the 8in reference woofer on bottom 3way I had to Enclose the woofer and want to know if I would improve the sound of this visaton "mid" by venting the sealed enclosure which it now shares with the tweeter? I also may try to find a lower crossover hz for this mid any suggestions are appreciated.I already had the 8inch opening and would have rather used a smaller dia. mid I know,but this is what I have to work with. Pic incl shows speaker with old paper infinity which has been replaced by this visaton. 4ohm crossover and drivers btw.
With a crossover at 750 Hz venting will not affect anything for the midrange. If the woofer and mid share the same chamber in the enclosure you will want to have these in two separate chambers.

Used as a mid? 3000hz?
I have been looking for some 8in 4ohm drivers to replace vintage Infinity paper cone speakers which cover the 750hz -3000hz range? How would this sound at the upper end?
This should work well as a midrange but I would say 3k is about the limit. The higher a larger diameter woofer plays, the more suseptable to beaming and cone breakup issues. The cone material on this will help with breakup nodes but beaming is due to the cone diameter itself. I usually recommend crossing woofers as low as the tweeter can safely handle.

this driver does great re QTC for a DQ-12
could this be a possible viable replacement for the 8" in a dahlquist dq-12?
Yes, it's the best of all worlds. good low frequency and enough midrange so you can cross over to whatever tweeter you have. Consider replacing both woofers though, so they match.
