Default Recommendations for <150$ 2 way project

Hi all

A friend is looking for a cheap pair of 2 way speakers, for less than 150$ (so, less that 100$ in drivers)

What is good in this price range?

I would definately recommend the Audax TM025F1 as the tweeter, and paired with the budget range HDA 6.5" HP170Z0, it should be within your price range and sound pretty good.

In that price range I would go for Peerless drivers.

You can order them from http://www.audiocomponents.nl

You get the best value for money with Peerless

I'm not sure about such a sweeping statement as that, Peter, yes Peerless do make good drivers at reasonable prices, but others make better.

Yes, ofcourse there are better drivers, but you will pay more for the same quality.

Audax used to be very good, but the quality is going downhill since they have been taken over by the Harmann group
