Default Cheap small full range suggestions ?

Gentlemen, Is this a silly question?
I'm toying with the idea of building a small set of speakers (kitchen use)
Likely powered by a diyTa2o20 Chip amp. .. lo.ish power, decent sound but not excellent, unless delusional.
I was hoping for an inexpensive (affordable) full range driver 4" to 6" ?? in a small tl ? box IF that even makes sense.
Only guessing .. that's why I'm asking here, where knowledge and experiences abound

I do have Tannoys in Horn enclosures using hybrid amplification... in their own room.
So I know what "good' is.. But I'm after 'pretty good' :-) for a v few $$.. Is this Possible?? And if so.. what drivers and where from?

Thank you.

A pair of Fostex fe103en 4" drivers in the recommended bass reflex box would work very well. If you extend the ports to 100 mm,tuning will be lowered to 80 hz.

These will get down to 80 cycles in a small TL.

Alpair 6 or 7 would be very nice in the kitchen. What's the budget?

How cheap is cheap?

Small TL is usually an oxymoron. How much room do you have?

Madiosund has the CHP70.2 (in tan) on for a real budget price. They will fit in 4.5-9 litre.

CHR70 has the advantage of a less permeable metal cone (if you are worried about smoke/grease/splashes getting on them)

My personal choice would be a set of uFonkenWK.

Oh yeah, good call. I didn't think of that.
Here's a poly.
Tang Band W5-1611SAF 5" Full Range Speaker 264-918
I saw the word cheap so that's what I gave ya at first, but it is a paper cone. Might get a little soggy

The Planet 10 box specifically for the paper cone CHP70.2 is
here:

Frugal-phile | Box Library / Mark Audio

This would seem to suit a small build for a counter top/kitchen.

I may do it myself since I recently took advantage of the sale price on this at Madisound. Right now my MA is installed in a found object from a previous build and continues to be gently (as Mark suggests) broken in.

The TB 1611 is a nice driver. Ironically its only significant sonic deficiency is a bit of a plasticy character.

It will need a bigger box than the ones i have mentioned.

Well, he said he wanted a tl. I'm not an expert on them but aren't TS parameters of no consequence?

They have as much significance in TLs they do in any other enclosure types.
