Default Fullrange for me?

I am in need of some small speakers for my bedroom, and I will be listening to mostly swing and jazz and possibly a bit of classical, but nothing that is heavily bassy.

I listen to a lot of Michael Buble, and Ella Fitzgerald. For 100ish budget in drivers I thought two 50 dollar fullrange might be a better investment than a 30 dollar woofer and 20 dollar tweeter.

Any thoughts? They will be used in a smallish room that will be about 15 feet from the listening position.

I'd recommend full range.
I listen to a pretty wide variety of music including a lot or alternative rock and more folkstyle rock along with classic rock, jazz, and a little classical from time to time and my full range have never given me any problems playing everything.

Are you willing to spend all $100 on drivers? If so the Audio Nirvana 6.5" may be a good choice $98/pr

Good Luck,

Josh

Yep, 100 dollars on drivers alone. I have pretty much all of the other stuff sitting around my house (MDF, router, table saw, etc).

I am not willing to spend more than 20 dollars on ports, accessories thought.

Any other suggestions on drivers?

You have to consider the W3-871s or Hi-Vi B3S designs by Zaph. Well within your budget - but not to be discarded because of it

I believe you get free speaker plans if you order from them.

Fullrange is definately for you - I can tell you first hand that nothing flatters Ella like a nice fullrange driver. I have heard her both on TB 871s ad CSS WR125s, and both sound great, with a siginificant quality advantage to the latter.

Does anyone have any thoughts about a FR125 in a TL that's folded to come out the front (since my application demands they be put up against the wall)?

Fostex Fe127e is a very good fullranger for the price, but I suppose it costs a bit more than 50$ in the US.

It has wonderful mids, well extended highs and sounds quite neutral to my ears. It is very detailed, and you will hear things you never noticed before.

I recommended them to a friend, and he's really pleased with them !

If you can afford them, they are way better than my TangBand W3-871S, which is a good speaker for the price too !

Not tested the CSS fr125, it must be a good driver too, with more bass than Fe127. I think they are a little more expensive.
