    I am debating between a single 6.5" Vifa MG18(fiberglass cone Magnesium basket) and a Vifa D25 Aluminum tweeter combo or adding in a 4" midrange for a pair of bookshelf speakers. I am not familiar with total crossover cost. So what would be the rough cost of these speakers if the prices are as follows:

    D25 = $30
    MG18 = $54
    MG10 = $40

    plus other costs. Is the advantage of adding a 4" speaker worth the cost?

    IMO, it probably isn't worth it when the woofer is 6.5". If you are going to go to the trouble of designing a 3-way, you might as well use a larger woofer.

    depends if you have a tweeter that is matched to it, and the box volume you intend on using with them is good. personally i haven't dealt with them, but Vifa is a good brand to go with. if you use the driver properly i am sure it will do just fine.
