Currently, I am using a pair of speakers that I paid $10 for in my office with my IPod. The speakers sound decent, but believe me, $10 is all they're worth. I have another pair of 2" drivers at home not mounted in cabinets. They don't have model numbers of other info except that they have "8 Ohms" printed on the back, so I'll have to play around to see what cabinet size works best for them. I need to power these speakers since the iPod alone doesn't quite muster a satisfactory volume. Hopefully a 1 to 2 wpc amp will do. I was thinking of buying a kit that uses a pair of LM386 chips, but they sound a little noisy to me. Anyone have any suggestions?
