Cheap speaker recomendations
Hi, i am a finishing carpenter and recently grew tired of the radio i had been using at work. I purchased a older Sony stereo receiver and threw a 2 old JL Audio TR650CX coaxial drivers in some old 3/4in plywood boxes(about 0.6 cubic ft) that i had in the basement. When these drivers were installed in my car many moons ago i recall them sounding really good and detailed.
Without calculating anything, i assumed these drivers would just sound as good as they did in my car, in some randomly chosen box. I guess i wasn't really surprised, more or less just hoping it would all work itself out. Boy was i wrong, they are boomy and lacking huge amounts of mid range, they almost echo a bit. I cant quite put my finger on it.
My guess is wrong driver, wrong design. Im assuming Coaxial speakers were ever realy intended to be used this way.
My needs are more or less some rugged speakers that can take some abuse, not be very large and have decent quality and output. Im not looking for huge ammounts of bass, more clarity. I have lots of power to work with so that isnt really going to be a problem and the amp is stable from 4-16 ohm so that gives me lots of possible configurations.
I have some Edirol MA-10A micro monitors and if i could build something that sounded in the range of them or my sirius boom box i would be more than happy. Suggestions anyone? I dont want to spend more than $100 on the drivers and parts for the pair.
