Thanks for the reply.

I appreciate you from saving me from wasting my money!

I think I may well choose the full range speaker design instead now.

Do the full range speakers struggle at all in the higher frequencies? (Would a tweeter be needed?)

For a full range unit, what would I be expecting to incorporate into the circuitry?

Some find them lacking in the lows, some in the highs and some are happy without any helpers. Everyone's ears are different. This is the adaptability.

How big is your room and what sort of music and volume do you like?

What amplifiers?

Size is not an issue in terms of my room.

My music is mainly rock based and I usually have it at a decent volume, however, sometimes I do like to crank up the volume a bit.

The Technology project isn't specific and allows pupils do construct anything they want, so I decided on speakers.

I don't actually need to present an amplifier with the final product, however, I will probably make or buy one, seeing as I am planning on keeping the system and want it to be a decent one.

I'm not entirely sure how easy or difficult it would be to make an amplifier, and would it be in a separate, third unit, or have one for each speaker, or possibly have it integrated into one of the speakers for send over to the other one.

OK,

I would stick with an integrated amp to start with rather than power the speakers. That's more for computer speakers. As far as drivers go, I am going to suggest you start a new thread over at the fullrange forum you originally posted in. The folks over there, can get you started much better than I as far as a good choice of drivers. I would guess you would want an 8" but let's let them decide. Good luck.

EDIT, New thread here:
