Default Any mini speaker plans

I want to build a pair of small but good sounding speakers for my kitchen. Are there any designs for a small 2-way with a 4" driver or maybe a 5 1/4" in a small enclosure?

Two more:

I'm also looking at building a small 2 way system to replace my current full range multimedia speakers. The 4" unit will definately be the Dayton RS125S-8 (can't beat it for $21/ea), but I'm having a hard time finding a small flange shielded tweeter that can handle a sub 2khz crossover frequency for under $20.

I'm in the process of building these right now...

I can let you know how they sound in a few weeks (hopefully).

Construction is pretty easy, and the price is right.

I was thinking about the same project a couple of years ago and found a very nice little RCF-driver. As i recall it it was pretty sensitive, 4-5" and with a kevlar-cone. I can't remember the part-number but the price was something like 800DKK or 130US$.

This is probably more than you want to spend, but it was a very nice unit with a high sensitivity.

Regards TroelsM
Need more time...
