I would like to build a pair of three way towers for my mains. Could anyone give me some good designs? Any recommendations would be very helpful. I am on a limited budget so the lower the cost the better.

Thanks
Chris

Wnichol, my favourite economy drivers are the Peerless range. Bang for buck I have not been able to beat them, (pricing may be different in your area). Unfortunately their 4" midrange seams to let them down a little, IMHO. You might want to listen to some other mids and pick something that you like, (I have a personal preference for dome mids, try them). Try Vifas as well, they're damn good for the price.
Another alternative is to audition speakers at your local HIFI store and clone something that appeals. I believe auditioning is an important step often forgotten in speaker building and can be half the fun.
If your budget is really restricted you may consider a 2-way speaker. In the past it was difficult to get drivers to cover the range and handle high power output, modern drivers are much better in these regards. Dollar for dollar 2-way speakers are often a better choice, (says him with a 4-way system).
Regards WALKER
