    Opinions on el'cheapo setup

    ok, heres what I'm lookin at now:

    goldwood 6.5" for doors $13 each:
    http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...number=290-308

    Peerless 2" mids in kicks $17 each:
    http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...number=289-030

    and the aura silk tweets I just got in kicks ~$15 each

    and make my own 3 way passive x-overs

    Should be less than $150 I hope

    look here man, check out: www.aaxes.com and you can get way better sounds for not too much more money then what your looking to spend, I paid I think only $37.99 for my PA components and they sound great, plus if your gonna build a system do it right

    Sounds pretty good so far. I haven't heard much about the Goldwood's, but the Peerless and Aura's are pretty good drivers.

    I'd try to borrow someone's active xover to determine what crossover points/slopes you'll need. Otherwise you may end up building passives multiple times till you finally "guess" the best combo.
