Default New speakers for my boxes

I want to get new speakers for the boxes i have. They have 1 15" speaker, 1 8" speaker and 3" opening. The measurements are 27.5" tall, 16.5" wide and 8.25" deep when measuring from the inside of the box. The box isn't ported but i can make it ported if needed.

What speakers and crossover would u recommend that aren't super expensive? I use these on my home theater(stereo does 110watts per channel)

Hi,

This isn't in the right forum.

15" woofers and 8" sealed back mid drivers are nowadays very
uncommon for home hi-fi, they are common in PA speakers.
PA speakers play very (unecessarily) loud but for their size have
limited bass extension.

Big cabinets and big drivers usually = big cost.

What drivers are currently in the boxes and what is the current crossover ?

/sreten.

The oringal speakers are gone and i not really sure what the crossover is. The speakers were made in the 80's so i guessing hte crossover would need to be replaced.
