Default DIY speakers - looking for help with parts.

I am looking to make my own speakers, however, I am not really familiar with the manufacturers so I need some input. They will be dual speakers. I want an amazing bass. My budget is 70$. Please recommend me an amplifier, subwoofer, tweeter...

I'll second that recommendation. Parts Express is a great vendor with practically anything you could want for building your own speakers.

It's rather hard to fit 2 bass drivers, 2 tweeters and crossover components to your budget. 70$ is about 55€, take in account that drivers will weight >5kg, then shipping costs in EU will be >15eur, so you have only 40eur left for all the components for 2 speakers. Very optimistical for building 2-way speakers.

With that money easy to find something from secondhand speakers from eBay.

70$ is not much of a budget for speakers with "amazing" bass,
Why are you talking about amplifiers and subwoofers ?

PE is not much use to anyone in Croatia.

On that budget, I would look for used or surplus speakers and parts. Building a chip amp should be feasible since chips like the LM3886 are cheap to buy and ship, and the expensive bits like transformers and heat sinks and filter caps can hopefully be salvaged from scrap electronics. But if you can acquire a 4 channel car amp, some people have successfully powered those from a computer power supply. That could be an easy way to a good 2.1 system since the amps often include an active crossover and bridging ability.
