Default Budget Bookshelf 2way

I'm going to be building a pair of speakers for a friend these holidays and was wondering if any of you knew of a solid, cheap (~$50), 2-way design

thanks

Honestly you'd be better of buying some $80 Insignias from BB.

This might work if you build the cabinets yourself:

i think i may go with the 2-ways from zaph, i just don't feel comfortable with a full range driver when i can build a small two way for maybe $20 more.

Are you certain that the 2 extra drivers and associated XO components that could be fit into that budget would necessarily sound better than a well executed single driver system ?

While this is not the "Full Range" forum, I'd suspect there are enough builders who've played on both sides of that fence to suggest you should at least consider looking at some of the proven simpler designs.

Of course there are questions such as intended application, room size, and type of amp/power levels that would enter into the determination, regardless of the driver complement.

If you can find them, these Accurian speakers are a great buy! Only $15 for the pair, and they have built in amplifiers. You will have to do some very easy modifications to get them to work. I personally will be giving a pair to my brother as computer speakers for Christmas.

They sound pretty good even without crossover modifications, but I'm going to try and measure them soon to see if I can come up with a tweak or two.

David
