Years ago, as a band director, I was very fortunate to get a pair of Klipsch Cornwalls for the band room. Bought unfinished, the kids had fun applying the finish. The combination of good sensitivity and dynamic range was just what the doctor ordered for the room. We had them on large casters, so they could be easily rolled into the locked storage room for safe keeping. If you're mounting speakers on a wall, try to mock it up and listen first. It's easy to make a decent speaker sound not so good by spreading them too far or not angling them properly. Good Luck!

These are great ideas! I'll start asking around to see if students and wood-shop teachers would be interested in doing this.

Thinking I would still need a good affordable design to get things started. I'll hit the archives for PA type builds for ideas. Any suggestions on where to start on a design to fit the room? Sounds like something based on a 12-15" pro woofer is the best bet at this point.

2 * 15s for bass; a single 10 or 12 for mids and a small horn or even a 3 inch wide range as the treble??
That is a reasonably big room and a small amp so sensitivity needs to be reasonable
I know that funds will be tight but if that receiver had pre-amp outs I would have recommended a cheap ( Behringer ) electronic XO and bi-amping.
Bi-amping can be cheaper and easier than a good passive set-up as second hand amplifiers can be much cheaper than good quality passive components
