Default Bose buster idea...

This may or may not work but how's this for a Bose buster? Take a Cambridge Soundworks MC50
and install a Tang Band W3-593sf

Not terribly hard to beat bose. But why bother with the cambridge cabinets? Easy enough to find a 'found object' type cabinet in this size- a thick-walled plastic cup or some such.

The tang bands are well-regarded.

Would this be the Bose Lifestyle system that I've just recieved some junk mail on saying if I give them 4 grand (UK pounds) they will give me a DVD player, some tiny (tinny) speakers and a horn loaded sub woofer, though if I havn't got 4,000 cash, they'll do me favarable rates.
Those little 3" Tang Band look nice and 4-50 on offer.

That's the idea. I know there were previous posts about designing a Bose buster and the original elph speaker using the Tang Band W3-871s was dubbed a Bose buster. That's the line of thinking for this thread. The CSW sats give you a dirt cheap option and a finished cabinet to use.

I'm seriously considering building one for the kids playstation set-up, even with postage to the UK those speakers are cute for the price.

I dropped a pair of 871's into some .25 cuft Dayton cabinets that I had laying around. I added a notch filtre and these speakers really impressed me. I've powered them with a T-amp and a pair of tube monoblocks as well. They sounded great with both, but the tube amps are a better pairing in my opinion. These little speakers are absolutely worth the money. For such a small cost, everyone should buy at least a pair to check them out.
