    I just finished building a pair of 4Ohm stable stereo amps.. and Id like to build something fairly good but inexpensive for the unutilized room in the house. Looking to spend maybe 200 on parts, but the cheaper the better. It's just something to keep me busy for a while. Bookshelves or towers would do.

    Any suggestions are welcome.

    Dan Wesnor has some great designs that can be done very inexpensively. Also, check out GR Research for some relatively inexpensive bookshelf speakers.

    For under $200 in parts (right around $150 actually) check out the Dayton III's.

    Check out the new S1 Series kits I put up about a week ago. I have yet to post the Xover diagrams, but they are finished. Both the MT and MTM are within your budget.

    I have pics of some finished enclosures up on the page for these also.

    Oops, forgot the link the first time:

    For uber cheap, uber quality speakers, I would recommend Dennis Murphy's M130/MDT-20 combination. The world's best $25 woofer with the world's best $25 tweeter, from one of the best DIY designers out there. Should be very nice. I was going to do this combo, but Dennis beat me to it.

    Although it you want a smaller box and can spend $50 more per pair, I'd also recommend my Model 2.
