Talking My current setup - Super frugal!

44 GBP worth of drivers and I can go from 25Hz to around 18Khz

Woofers in a TL crossed over around 150Hz with some DODGY dahlquist active low pass filter

There's probably a pretty big bose-style hole in my responce at the moment, but it sounds alright.

80s music sounds great because of its exagerated treble being flattened out by the slightly recessed top end of the full rangers



Woofer - 18 GBP each, fullranger - 4 GBP each

I should start a website called 'scrap hifi', where people can submit articles on how to make really cheap "hifi"

This thread is about really cheap but acceptable sounding setups

You could make some open-baffles for that FR driver, they could be placed on top of the subs.
How did you fix those FR drivers to those... inverted speaker stands?? (!)

I'd be more impressed if you had ripped off that piece of drywall to use as a baffle.

Yes, that's what I thought, but the stands are round...

Looks Ghetto!

You need to kick a hole in the door and break the handle to complete the look.

The lighting in that picture makes my bedroom look pretty hideous, but it's only one wall that's like that (plumbing work needs to be done). The rest is nice
