Default Pairing odd-bod Tannoy 15's?

Some time ago I acquired one Tannoy red 15. My plan is to keep it against the possibility of eventually finding a mate for it, and then constructing suitable cabinets.

Ideally it'd be best to find another 15 red, but ... were I to find (say) a Gold 15, could these two be matched successfully?

Obviously padding might be necessary, but what other issues are there to consider?

I'm thinking it might be best to replace the XO's with an active XO and bi-amp.

Thanks

Doug

Theoretically they're all but the same driver. Theoretically (as in take with a large quantity of salt). That said, you're excessively unlikely to get a matched pair anyway with drivers of this vintage, so a gold will likely make an acceptable enough match.
