Tang Band W4-1720 + Fountek NeoCD1.0 Outstanding bass from such a small woofer, pleasant midrange, and a ribbon tweeter. All in a small footprint. Makes a great rich boy toy
Dayton DA175 + Vifa BC25TG15 A low-cost, high-value speaker that was intended as a DIY nearfield studio monitor.
Scan-Speak 15W/8530K00 + Hiquphon OWI An unassuming-looking bookshelf 2-way that puts out phenomenal bass, and a pinpoint soundstage. Exciting, yet comfortable at the same time. Not for the frugal.
HiVi B4N + Dayton ND20FA-6 A simple, small speaker with surprisingly deep bass and a wide and deep soundstage. These are a good bargain for such a small price.
HiVi B4N (x2) + Dayton ND20FA-6 Like the Overnight Sensations, but louder! Big sound, small package. These could be very versatile, and have been used in a wide variety of cabinets.
Dayton DC160 + Vifa BC25TG15 One of the funnest speakers I've ever done! Great bass, solid soundstage, and a pleasing sound that works well even with poor recordings. Great for getting a big sound in a small living space.

I am leaving these up for reference purposes. If you still have these drivers, by all means, build and enjoy these speakers. However, please don't ask me for driver substitutions at this time. Sorry.
