Any you wish to make that doesnt have a really bad impedance with severe phase swings.

Remember the difference between 120 and 80 watts is 1.7dB.

When you say respond well do you mean go loud? In this case you also want good sensativity.
What the hell are you screamin' for? Every five minutes there's a bomb or somethin'! I'm leavin! bzzzz! Now with website! www.5een.co.uk under construction.

Forget about watts, they tell you nothing. Also don't expect -- as this will be your first speaker -- even though you have a great budget, to make something that will beat a commercial speaker at that price. You will need to learn a fair bit before you get anywhere. If you don't have the time/patience/knowledge then you may be best looking for a kit.

We need more information. What kind of music do you want to play on it? How big will you allow it to be? What kind of volume levels are you hoping to achieve?

Here are some popular sites with good designs. Your going to have to read through them and put some thought into whats suitable for you. Stick to the plans. You cant interchange things. Dont try designing your own at this point cause it takes years to learn to do well.

Once you find a few designs that seem to appeal to you, you can get more feed back here. Your current question is kinda vaque which is why your not getting more answers.

http://www.speakerbuilder.net/web_files/default.htm (the D3 on this site is one of the most popular speakers on the web and its popular for music like youve mentioned)

Here a big list of diy audio links

the mbow 3way on muphyblaster.com is likely to be one of the best 3ways that will fit in your buget. You could build the mbow 2way, which uses the same midwoofer and tweeter as the 3way, for your smaller speaker. Ordering the same drivers will save you shipping costs. You'd probably have to spend lOTS of coin to get this quality commercially.

I dont agree with the last poster who said that since this is your first project it wont be up to par with commercial designs. If you were trying to design something then yes, but follow almost any design on the links above and your likely to get more than the same money would get you commercially. In some cases alot more.

Give it a shot. You will be glad you did.

Good luck
