Home High Efficiency Speaker Asylum

Need speakers that can rock with just one watt? You found da place.

RE: How about non-DIY sources?

Just the usual - PA / DJ sources, or selected stuff from Hi Fi shops. The PA market has many quite affordible passives. Usually if the bass drivers are are 30cm or more, efficiency is high 90s. Or search for JBL and other well regarded brands on ebay, and wait till something comes up locally.

The most turnkey solution would be to buy a one-box system: a speaker with internal amplifiers + rechargeable batteries.

Alternatively, you could go pretty DIY without actually building it yourself: a lot of the systems discussed here are essentially a big horn plonked on top of a big bass bin. You could clone one of these. Given a good set of plans, a carpenter could build a decent bass bin for you, and all you'd have to do would be to wire it up and bolt the horn driver together.
