LS50 spec says -3db @ 79Hz. Alpair 10.3 in an 13 litre BR box easily beats that, -3db @ 50Hz (simulated).

I think the LS50 Wireless is a very different speaker than the wired one. Reviews say the same thing, and could be why the wireless costs double.

Specs on wireless say -3dB is 45hz on the "more bass" mode.

That was a good call on KEF's part to make the tweeter a 30w Class AB.

There is still a pair of 10.3 available on flea bay from the stock sale of a finish speaker company, that makes the price of admission even lower...

I think any of the Mark Audio 10p/3 drivers will give the LS50's a good run for their money!

I've never heard any of the MA stuff that I can recall anyway.

I have heard the LS50 with a mosfet/tube hybrid amp and a subwoofer that crossed in around 100Hz. This set up played in the living room at my house during a recent audiofest. Probably the best sound I've heard in that room from systems schlepped in for the gathering. It was coherent, fast and imaged well. I would not trade it for the basement system..

Doing the whole thing DIY has merit, learn something new and have fun doing it, maybe save a little money.

I'm running a stereo system with a pair of large 3 way horn/Onken based speakers with six channels of amplification, electronic crossovers, DSP, lots of tubes, transformers, mosfets, and dsp. I have no room for another system in the house. (the wife would kill me.. lol)

The LSX, the llittle 4in sibling to the LS50 Wireless looks pretty nice. Look at the the back panel features. Reviews are quite good.
