Then get a pair of Altec 416 or 515 drivers.

Properly loaded they can work wonders for the mid bass region. Scott has 4 of them in his system.

The 816 works pretty well in the mid-band especially.

Your best choice for these would be used Altec 515-G series or new Iconic Mfg. Co. Model 165-series woofers.

Both are optimized for use in bas horns, and are especially well behaved in the midband.
