OK thats kinda complicated let me re-type it:
!!!!!!REMEMBER IM TRYING TO KEEP THE PRICE AS LOW AS POSSIBLE FOR EVERYTHING!!!!!

i will soon be getting a 5.1 receiver

1. Can anyone recommend:
2. a 5.1 off ebay for cheap (under $100)
3. 2 Fullrange speakers for the setup ( At or Under $35)
4. 1 sub (any size at or under $75)

and answering the following:
1. Can i run 1 or 2 of my dual 4 10 inch subs off of the receiver (RF's 400rms each)
2. Am i going to need to use mids and tweeters for a good sounding setup? ( i want to avoid crossovers and keep the price down if i can)
3. If u do recommend comps, can i use caraudio comps is there a differance?
4. some one recomemnded the 3in fullrange tangbands ( i think lemans did a thread on them for his H/T system) there 12 watts rms each and would those sound? and how could i run those off a receiver which will prolyl be at least 75 watts per channel?

And if theres a good site for H/t enclosures and designs a link would help, thx for the help!!! !!!!!!REMEMBER IM TRYING TO KEEP THE PRICE AS LOW AS POSSIBLE FOR EVERYTHING!!!!!

with that kind of budget i honestly think you would be better waiting and saving up a little more money.
and as for the rf subs you cant easily run those off the reciever, a plate or pro amp would be your best bet for those.

a pair of those in fostexs recommended back loaded horns will probably be very nice. and then maybe a tang band 8" sub with a plate amp. you could use those RF subs and then a plate amp if you want. you'll need a plate amp for the subs.

heres the plans for the back loaded horn for the fostex full range.

or maybe a pair of these each in a .44 ft^3 sealed enclosure.

You can wire two either firing in the same direction and add a tweeter for the top end, or fire one back and one forward and not use a tweet.

think he'd do well designing a dipole if he started the thread?

:)

i do like the dappolito style suggestion though.

Just don't get a huge flat panel TV and use terrible speakers; it shows you have more money than brains :)

I'll take my 27" TV and know I have enough audio system to make it seem much larger :)
