Edit: I know you're asking for a kit, but I couldn't find one with those drivers that was as close as this is to the price you're looking for. If you want, you can always ship it to me and I can disassemble it for you

Nothing in this price-range?????
It isnt a MUST that it has to be Accuton drivers, but im in LOVE with Marten Colrane 2. And if there was a kit with Accuton drivers, then I could tweek the design more to what Coltrane 2 looks like.

For example this speaker:

and then designed a Coltrane 2-design and for example split the loudspeaker in 2, like this speaker in the picture. See?

What about the HumblehomemadeHifi. You could get the Soup Ceramique mk2 built for you. It uses those Accuton drivers. Heres a link to the PDF

There are some nice kits on troelsgravesen.dk and zaphaudio.com.

As far as the Accuton, cloning the Coltrane 2 might be viable, the trick is going to be their crossover.

Go active. All the stuff shown so far has passive crossovers. Go active. Either design and build the boxes yourself, or just design them (it's not hard) and have someone build them for you. Have some of the crew here design the boxes for you if you don't want to do it. Then buy or build the active crossovers and all the amplifiers you need to run it. For really high end, you can easily end up with a system that costs 10 grand. A "kit" seems silly to me since it's just assembling the parts. Why bother? Design it yourself or have someone here do it. Pay someone to make the boxes if you can't or don't want to.
