Hoffman's Iron Law: Small -- Loud -- Low. Pick two.

If you want cheap, you probably will only get small.

Markaudio FR speakers combine small and good bass, but they won't be loud. And they are refined products with a price tag to match.

It can be done, but it will be a large horn speaker. And for the price of that cabinet, you could easily buy a good large driver.

How about a pair of Fostex FE126en in a FH Mk3 box made of foam-core and hot glue? Cheaper, they'll play loud, and easy to build. I've never heard them so I don't know about good bass, but I may try it myself. I did a scaled down version of it and it was pretty good even that way. The box was 12x12x6 internally.

Well, I've found Fountek FR88EX and Peerless P830986 to have good bass for the size. Thing with Bose is that it employs a lot of DSP.
