    Depends; are you talking about co-axials or components.....it may have different meanings

    For components, 3-way means that there is a tweeter, a dedicated midrange and a dedicated midbass. 2-ways just have tweets and a single mid that plays both midrange and midbass. Each have their advantages and disadvantages.

    For co-axials, it's basically just a marketing tool 3-way for co-axials usually means that either it has the mid, tweeter and "super-tweeter", or it has a mid, small crappy midrange, and tweeter. 2-way just has the mid and tweeter.

    3-way co-axials seem absolutely pointless to me. They have a mid-bass that is the right size, but then they have a really tiny "midrange" and a really tiny "tweeter" sqeezed into a space that should just hold one larger tweeter. Just go with 2-ways if you are going for co-axials. You get a mid-bass that is the right size and a tweeter that's the right size. But I'm a newbie and haven't had a chance to listen to speakers enough to tell the difference. I'm just going off of looks so don't take me too seriously.
