          I'm intrigued by coax designs. I followed the Minerva monitor thread on another forum, though that's way out of the proposed price limit here. I could see a lot of people going for the Morel​ 424 on that one, which is what I'd use.

            I thought the same thing, regarding the Morel 424. There's not a whole lot of coax drivers out there under $150, outside of the car audio market of course. An interesting and affordable new entry is the SB13PFC25-4, which could make for an interesting design on a budget.

              FaitalPro, B&C, SEAS, Morel, SB, Eminence, Celestion, Atlas Sound; lots of options... then there are also the DIY and mobile options.
              The coax tweeters for the SEAS units are even cheap enough to adapt to something else and make your own.

              A confession- I actually was targeting the SEAS clear-cone TPX concentric for the cost limit, but I see that it's more than the $150 cutoff each.
              If there is no objection, I would open the coax limit to $200 each to allow these.

                Thanks Ben, that would make more sense as now the seas and a couple of the morel units will be in range.

                    Wolf, 5- Keeping up with the Jones's: Use a Coax MT and a woofer from 6.5-10" in size

                    Can there be multiple woofers in #5?

                      Yes, if they cost less than $150/cab.

                        Ben -

                        The definition in post #1 now reads "<$200 per coax, and <$150 for the woofer- each. $300 limit per cab." So whatever you spend over $150 on the coax comes out of the $150 woofer budget, right? Or should that read ""$350 limit per cab"?

                          You read it correctly! $300 max. There are lots of good $100 woofers.

                            The driver combo I was hoping to use for this project if it ends up being a go misses the $300 mark by 12 bucks. That sucks.

                              Bummer. Maybe there'll be a little wiggle room after everything gets sorted out, but it does seem like the coax category is going to be the winner. If that's the case, I already have my design figured out.

                                I'm also assuming a passive radiator would be included in driver cost.
