There is also a 5x7 carbon fiber Bravox component set with silk dome tweeters on PE web site for $70. It's probably hard to beat them with anything costing less than 200-250. If you can spend more, there is JL Audio C5-570 and Image Dynamics XS-57. Both are supposed very good and worth their price.

As for the amplifiers, I'd suggest to look into a modern Class D amplifier. Alpine MRV/MRP-F300, PPI P900.4, or Soundstream TN4.900D. These are good low distortion amplifiers that run cool and priced right.
