    Component Suggestion: 2-way active now, 3-way active later

    Hey guys, I know there are a thousand threads on speaker suggestions. Have read through a lot of them, and feel overwhelmed with choice.

    What I am wanting to do is to buy a good 2-way active setup for now, so I can learn how to tune it, etc. Then when I feel more comfortable tuning, and learn more upgrade to a 3-way active setup. What I am hoping to do is not have to replace all the speakers when I make the switch.

    So are there any good 7" or 6.5" mid-bass and tweeters that would make good 2-way speakers for now, and lend themselves to adding a midrange later??

    Ideas I was thinking of are the Peerless Exclusive 7", AA 6.5" Poly Mid, the CA , Dayton 7" (RS-180), CA18RNX. As for tweeters, maybe the Seas Neo tweeter, LPG26na.

    Budget is 200-400 for the 2 way setup for now. Have 75w RMS x4 at 4 ohm's, crossover is taken care of.

    As to sound, looking for more SQ then SPL. Listen to rock, r&b, blues, trance, ambient, some hip-hop, rap and techno.

    Thanks for the help guys!

    The Dayton RS combo (RS180+RS28?) would be great because the tweeter plays down so low... then when you want to go three way you can either replace the tweet and add a mid or just cross the Dayton tweet higher...
