Re: why componets and not 3way
With a few exceptions, component sets use higher quality drivers than coaxial type speakers. Power handling really has nothing to do with it, rather it is just quality. Most 2-way and 3-way speakers use really low quality tweeters and have almost nothing in the way of a real crossover.
Like I said there are good coaxes out there. The middle and high end CDT Braxial series, the convertible MB Quarts and a couple of others are out there that use component drivers that are mounted together to make a coax speaker. They are only 2-way, but they have good drivers and proper crossovers and are better than any budget 2- or 3-way speaker.
