There you go editing your posts again Poobah...... in the middle of my (very slow) typing. I trust Wynand that you got the gist of what we're saying.

Cheers

So from USSpeaker.com I can get away with a $50-$100 budget.

i.e. R350-R700 rand. excluding shipping.

Yep,

And just grazing the sites a bit... you're lookin at about $50 US as a minimum... I think that is ~300 Rand.

The quasi-chicken makes an excellent point about efficiency. Also, most guitar speakers are meant to run in an open box... so the subwoofer idea is really pretty poor.

A low budget approach might be to consider another type of speaker meant for infinite baffle duty... perhaps an intercom speaker that you would find in a ceiling or wall. Check the impedance though... some of them are whacky.

You should be able to find most of these brands in Cape Town. Just hop in to your local music store. Also check out pawnbrokers for second hand speakers (boxes included). Many a struggling musician has parted with pre-loved equipment.

Quasi,

Is your slow typing the result of the "hunt and peck" method?



You can remove the chicken... I'll stop...
