Was it my fault

I'm actually going to build my own Bose-beater

I got tried of big over complicated speakers.

I had a Bose cubes and sub system once when I was a teenage for about 30 minutes before returning it. I mean it sounded pretty awful, but it wasn't terrible. Unless you consider those synonyms But on the plus side it should be pretty easy to "beat."

You definitely need to make it swivel though. This should negate the lobing/beaming issues one might have. Seems like there are some good 3" candidates for this. They have a kind of rising SPL once they star to beam. Just listen to them both of them 10-20 degrees off axis, so have them around 20-40 degrees with respect to the other driver in that speaker (or set of attached speakers).

If you don't care for high frequencies much this could be a pretty good compact setup, I think. I don't stress about accuracy of sound production much. I like systems that sound the way I like them to sound, especially with lots of tight bass and ability to go loud.

My idea of a nice 2-way is 3" drivers with 15-18" woofers. But I don't have room for pro woofers playing up to 400-500 Hz, so I'm going with the Bose-beater. I might add a tweeter though. I want to look at small speakers in my small apartment

I have a suggestion for an inexpensive, widely available Bose-beater:

Yeah you're right, those are the exact opposite of Bose speakers.
They have the lowest WAF I have ever seen.
The only thing I can think of that would have less WAF is if you made speakers enclosures out of a dumpster.

A good bose beater would be to use individual Audience A3 drivers sealed, in place of the satelites, with a good quality subwoofer. Should be amazing, plus high WAF.

If this is over the budget, then consider the Jordan JX6RD drivers.

If that were my wife I would purchase her PSB Imagine Mini and the best thing is that I can live with it too. Add later a sub and you are ready to rock...

Girls find those mini's cute...

I am designing an mp3 boom box using the well regarded TABAQ mass loaded TL but folded into a 9.5 inch cube to basically have a system that gets down to 55 Hz with low cost 3 in full range drivers. Check out this thread TABAQ TL for Tang Band . This has the cute factor that wives may like.
