$500, including the center channel, is more reasonable...the sub would be another $200 or so.

How much power do you have to play with?

CSS 4.5" full range drivers, or WR125's with tweets, would be a nice setup for that budget...probably save you some off that as well :)

The RS's are solid drivers, hard to go wrong with them...

As for Xovers, I'd talk to Ology Audio, as he knows what those drivers like :)

Not sure if you'd need a Zobel on those tweets, don't think you would...

i have power, no nothing yet.

doing this all from the ground up.

i was gonna get speakers, then power to match them.

then i was gonna get a sub, then power for it as well.


is this a crappy thought process?
