Default Want to build Large 3 Way - Suggestions for Drivers

I am planning to build large flor standing 3 way speaker systems. I want to model them around Legacy Audio Focus HD speakers.

Therefore would like to have 2 X 12" Woofers, 2 X Midrange and Dome+Ribbon Tweeter.

I would like the box to be ported.

My primary use would be music and then movies.

I have a twin 12" sub woofer system, which will pair with this for low frequencies.

Need suggestion from forum members for the woofers (money is not a big constraint) and the midranges.

Thanks.

That would be difficult but, on consideration, I don't think the speaker may be best suited to home theatre.
What about this? This will blow you away!

Not a 12' driver design, but it has everything else on your wish list (..though it is an WMTMW design, which is a bit different than the focus):

Why do you believe that it is not suitable for home theater?

Thanks.

Looks pretty good and close to my requirements. Need to figure out if I can change to 12" drivers instead of 8".

Thanks.

The deep bass in home theatre doesn't appear in hi-fi CDs (generally). Most CDs don't have much, if anything, below 40 Hz.

Depends on the music. Rock, quite true. Jazz and classical, not true at all.

Big floor-standers, Peerless XL 500's, ScanSpeal Revelator mid and tweet. Electronic crossover and triamped of course.
