Default Drivers for 3-way system

Hi all,

I'm new to the home system area and am looking for drivers to build a 3-way stereo system. Please advice me on some drivers. I've used Dynaudio in my cars before and liked the sounds of lows and drums from Dynaudios, so if any woofers could reproduce those sounds would be great. As for midrange, I'd like to have the smooth and sweetness of the vocals. And highs, not so much bright please. Here are what I'm looking for.

- 8inch woofers: single 8inch for each side. Under $75 each.
- Midrange: if sealed would be great, under $40 each.
- High: possibly crossover at 3,000 hz, under $30 each.

I'll be running these 2 speakers with my Rotel receiver 75 watts per channel.

Thank you all for your help and I really appreciate it.

It's that a bookshelf/standmount or a floorstanding. The classic question (bookshelf vs floorstanding speakers). And size of room also important to understand the concept of the design.

More important for a speaker, is that you like "the voice of the" mid. So, you should start here first.
Look at the price here.
