The one you like ;)

j/ depends on your requirements.

What content?

What budget?

What is your listening distance?

What is your required SPL?

What size room will it be in?

Do looks matter?

What is the best car? Same vagueness that cannot be answered without subjectivity.

In the recent Hobby Hifi magazine there is a speaker with JA8008 bass driver and a Mundorf AMT. Doesn't go that low, but from the other measurement data it is a strong contender.

It was a DIY speaker? I would love to read about it.

I would like to know what the OP is attempting to get from the answer. Might help us.

My list from the memories through the years (tech data aside)

Very small room/car - Minimus 7
Small room - Large Advent
Large room/Patio - Altec A7

Hobby Hifi is one of the two DIY magazines in Germany.
I don't know what Bernd Timmermanns does when somebody from overseas is interested. Ask him.

The best speaker, for any person, is simple.
It is not the one that you spend hours staring at, from the other side of the glass, looking at the price tag, thinking that, being so expensive, it must be fantastic.
It's the trusty old one, sat at home, the first that you use for testing things, the one that doesn't mind if you use it for the occasional party, the speaker that's always ready for the new CD/LP you've just bought.

The best speaker, in the world, is the one you already have.

Agree the question is so vague that it needs a lot of qualifiers to zero in on a specific answer. But during 50+ years in this hobby, I've owned a lot of speakers, including many 2-ways. So I'm going to give my own subjective answer.

My favorite 2-way by far is the Mission 770. It first came out in the mid-70's and was revised in the late 70's. I bought a pair of the revised version in 1981, and still own them. Of all the speakers I've owned, they are the ones I could never bear parting with. They are currently not in use as mains, but I would love someday to build a new system around them.

They were designed according the BBC principles (2-way reflex, simple crossover, thin-walled box about 1 x 1 x 2). So they have that "classic" British sound, which you may or may not like. But I loved it. Those suckers just let the music come shining through. BTW, after 30 some years, the cones and surrounds are still in great shape.

Maybe not exactly what you were looking for, but FWIW.
