ultimate budget speaker
just wondering if there was a floorstanding speaker design, that is relativly cheap, relatively compact, but with pants wetting dynamics and imaging....

am i asking too much?


(can i use my FR125S as a part of it?) :D

i listen to blues, country, indie, classic rock and easy listening.

You'll need to be more specific -

How cheap? What is your budget?

What sort of room size do you have?

Will you want to include a subwoofer?

What sort of dimensions did you have in mind for the speakers?

cheap as in 50 each for the drivers.

my room is 9"x15" but i will be getting a bigger room next year.

i have a sub, so i only need a F3 of around 50-55Hz.

no bigger than 3ft tall and either (thin and deep) or (wide and thin).

i would like to use my FR125S if i can as i allready have 2, say for the midrange.

Interesting, 'ultimate and budget' together.
Do you mean the cheapest decent speaker or the best speaker on what you (or anyone else) would call a budget?
Let's say for the money you propose I'd suggest the Cyburg Needle, Fe126 Buschhorn or the Lancetta (bit tall I agree).

well i just want the best speaker that i can make with the requirements with my budget.

i forgot to say that i would like a 2 or 3 way design, with a woofer to take over the FR125S at around 200-300Hz and mabye a tweeter for 15KHz and above.

mabye like this-

If you want the best speaker for your money, take your bucks and buy one good driver. 2 or 3 way's definitely not recommended here.

i would definitely go 2 way, single speaker will never achieve the bass you want
try ProAc Response 2.5 clone

As you have FR125Ss presumably one of the designs is the way to go.

yeah, but they all use the Fr125s as a full range, i want to add a bigger woofer to take the strain of them.
I like the Raw Acoustics ones, but i want to design my own and i can not afford an extremis, unless there is not a good alternative thats cheaper, and i will save up.
