    For such an inexpensive setup, why deal with a three way?

    Crossovers are anything but simple if you want it to actually sound good. The fact is, for something like this, why not just pick up one of PE's standard 3-way X-overs?

    Could you recomend a 2way setup for about $60 a pair.

    To get anything worth building I think you're going to have to raise your budget to at least $100 for a pair.

    It's too bad Sound Clearing House went under. They had a nice kit around the $100 mark too.

    Post in the DIY area. People there might be able to recommend a few other ~$100 kits out there.

    Also, if you really want to attempt designing your own, go to the library and check out the Loud Speaker Design Cookbook by Vance Dickanson.
