1k sound system (well, 0.8k):

2-way crossover (bass/mid-tops)
2 x 250W bass scoops
2 x 250W trapesoidal mid-tops
2 x 200W per channel amps (it's advisable to get lower amp output that cone rating for obvious reasons)

Or, you could use a 3-way crossover (bass/mids/tops), but that means extra boxes and amps for the tops. This is more versatile though.

Hope this helps,

Not cheap:

Two amps and a crossover will cost you around £500-£600 second hand. The speakers will probably cost around the same, unless you're prepared to build them yourself. If you do go DIY then the price is about half that.
