Aren't many domes that wouldn't work fine paired into that. You've got an easy sensitivity goal and very flexible x-over options off that mid-range. 1" size domes would probably be the best balance.

In sticking with the metallic theme, perhaps something like this would be a nice aesthetic match: Vifa NE25-VTA-04, Aluminium - RumoH - Caps, coils and speakers

Might look to see if anyone has tested distortion before pulling the trigger.

Shoot, go with that one that zaph has tested, at least then you know. I like that better than the suggestion I made since you have evidence to support it being a decent unit.

The only thing I like about he Vifa better is the smaller face plate, which would be friendlier with a higher x-over point since you could get the drivers spaced closer together. Hopefully others will chime in with ideas

Hi,

Any decent tweeter should work. You'd better know your x/o design onions.

rgds, sreten.
