Or someone to build them for me and I'd buy em from ya

Anyways , I planned on doing some towers , possibly 2 8"s and a mid or two and some tweeters.

havent really picked anything out yet so any recomendations you guys have would be great , trying to keep these guys priced right around 2-300 for both

2-3 bills for the xovers or the towers...?

yeah i assume so, but depending on the components, 2-3 isn't unrealistic

2-300 for everything , been looking at PE's website lookin at the dayton drivers , they seem to be popular bang for the buck

make me some suggestions , looking for some full range towers , sub bass duty will be provieded by a 12" sub

i'd do TMWW, tweeter using a nice morel, mid using a nice seas or morel dome, and i'd use the 7" dayton RS for the woofer. this is, however, without even looking at the specs :)

Talk to ologyaudio, he was telling me about a tower he has designed with 2 8's a 5" mid and a tweeter per tower, and he makes xovers, send him a pm.

Edit: nm, just noticed you want to spend 2-300 dollars

Talk to ologyaudio he may be able to set up something more budget, but the setup i was talking to him was ~1k after amps and materials also.

Hmm, you may want to try the dayton rs drivers, although i don't know anything about the woofer you have there I do know that the rs drivers are **** good (in my car though not exactly sure how it would sound in home but i would guess very good).
