    If you had $2000 to spend...

    If you had $2000 to spend on a front stage, including amps, midbass, mids, tweeters or just running a standard 2 way, what would you buy?

    My ultimate 2way would be comprised of these two drivers, crossed gently somewhere around 150hz-250hz between the two. I'd probably run them on a couple Audison HR100's, lol.
