Default looking for 3-way speaker designs

Since I don't manage to make time to design one myself I'm looking for some interesting compact 3-way designs.
I was thinking about an 8" bass and preferably a magnetostat tweeter.
Max outside dimensions are 25cm (~10") wide (could be increased to 30cm, but I'd rather like it to keep it at around 25cm), 115cm (~45") high and 40cm (~15 3/4")deep.

Budget? Don't know yet. I'm just orientating.

Thanks for any suggestions.

I've tried the "DIY Project Database Search" but that doesn't seem to work.

Here you go

It uses a 6.5" woofer but it fits your dimensions nicely and has an interesting curved sided enclosure

Picking some nice drivers for a 3-way isn't that hard. I can do that myself.
I could even do the design myself ...if I had the time....


Budget...see first post.

Looks great, and I know everybody is raving about SS revelators .... but I've never been really impressed by them. Not bad, not at all... but for what they cost they don't do it for me... I like Seas Excel more.
Maybe I've listened to wrong designs, so I'll keep them in mind anyway.

Yep, have been looking at that one too.
I know Tony from the meetings we have with zelfbouwaudio.nl . Great guy.
Aha, those are yours. Nice speakers. The woofer-enclosure is a little deep, so I don't know if I could place them in a nice way.
