Default High powered tweeters with a low x/o point?

Hi, my mate was asking me to help him build a half K set of back wall speakers for a studio, I'm not really wanting to go 3 way if possible but I don't think there is any such thing as a high power full range unit. What I am looking for is either a high power tweeter with a low x/o or a high power mid which doesnt need to be x/o'd at the top end (trying to avoid crossover components) another option would be to go active, and then I would not have these issues, right? but I know nothing about this. help!

alternatively if you wanted a high power full range:
Alpair 10 Full Range | Markaudio
would be able to take the same power while crossed @ 300Hz with a steep crossover (1/2 energy in music is located aprox <250Hz). Fully active is always good and worthwhile.

Maybe sensitivity will be somewhat low for that application:

Max. heat dissipation will be lower presumably:

This one works nice as a tweeter, i already had it in a 2-way.

Seas T25CF002 Millenium is pricey but can go cleanly down to 1500Hz xo with 90W long term and 200W short term power handling and 89db sensitivity.

You could just use a (L-padded) piezo to cover the top end. That may permit using a high-power mid/tweeter.

cheers

just realised I posted this before, thanks for your help. looking at ebay and found something by dynaudio but I love the Accutons too. Decided to go DSP so I don't have to worry about passive x/o's etc

The 6600 ScanSpeak has a resonance frequency below 500 Hz and goes up to over 30kHz. I wouldn't get Dynaudio. I am tempted by the ScanSpeaks and if I had them would crossover at about 1500Hz which they should handle wonderfully given the miniDSPs.

What kind of power? What XO point? Without more clarity, I'm liable to suggest something like a 3" full-range Tangband. One of these may even be good enough by itself if the sub is crossed a little high, otherwise, you could theoretically have a system with a variable XO for different program material.
