Default advise on 2nd build

Hey Guys,
Ok I know this may open a huge can of worms, and I'm sure this has been addressed a thousand times, but here goes.

I'm thinking about building another set of speakers, I just built my first set of Cyburgs Needles to get my feet wet. They are pretty cool, I was impressed by what a tiny little 3" driver can do, however they are just not my cup of tea, so I'm going to give them to my daughter, they should make for a nice set of apartment speaker.

I'm looking for some suggestions and opinions, I'm not an audiophile by any means, however I do know good sound.

I was thinking about a set of these for my next project, any thoughts or suggestions?

Well, now you know what you don't want, I think you've gone some way to defining just what is your 'cup of tea', I depends on what kind of music you listen to, how loud, how big your room is ....
I'd suggest that if you're not happy with a small FR driver, next step is a 2 way with a 6.5" woofer min, using drivers known to have good FR response and low distortion...
check out Zaph's site
Impedance varies with frequency, use impedance plots of your drivers and make crossover calculations using the actual impedance of the driver at the crossover frequency

I haven't heard Lou's Schticks, but everyone who has built them has reported very positive results. Plus, Lou is a great guy.

I have built these. Similar price range; they sound phenomenal. You would not believe the sound you get for the price

My floorstanding 3-ways are mostly open-baffle. But lately, I've been working on a series of tall 2-ways (which I'm really pleased with the results so far)

Oh, and last but not least, these also have a LOT of satisfied customers:

There are more, for sure. But there's a bunch of tried-and-true fun stuff to start with
