I'm not sure that even I could do it for 800 quid, mean as I am. That's tight for this sort of project. Will need to think a bit.

800 quid is like about $1,000.00 US. If he is willing to build the enclosure and you are only looking at the speaker and xo cost should be doable.

Do you think the driver spending above is unreasonable? I can get the PD 18" or 15" for 150-200 each. The Fane 10-300 is 60 each so I'd have roughly 280 for highs - no good?

just short of $1300 according to XE.com

I have the materials for the enclosure and will build myself. The crossover will be active and thats not included in the 800.

Well maybe, at those prices. You gotta count horn and box costs, too. Are you making the horns, or buying some cheap? Does crossover count, or is that extra?
Oops, cross post,

Can you get the radian drivers there at a decent price?

JRKO,
I have been lurkiing and watching. Dont know what you can get on your side of the pond, but two drivers that look good to me are Eminance Omega Pro 15A and Selenium 15SW600. I like the Selenium for cheaper price and smaller Vas. Just food for thought as you may not be able to get them. Has very good polar response as well. can go quite high, possibly relieving need for Midbass.

Looks like this to me:
Pair 18 Sound woofers 400
Pair 18 Sound or Radian 1.4" drivers 500

Already over budget with no horn yet. You'll have to find other drivers. Maybe some of the Faital Pro drivers? They should fit the budget.

Would the Precision Devices drivers not be as good?

I know the pro guys in the UK love PD. I've never used it. How do prices compare to Faital?

Assuming you are going with the mids and woofers you mentioned I'd probably go with BMS 4538 (Thomann 54ea.) on a Beyma TD164 (LMC or Blue Aran 36ea.) crossed at 1.9kHz.

Or a 4548 (Thomann 75ea.) on a Beyma TD194 (same as above) or RCF HF100 or 101 crossed at around 1.4k.

The Beymas are cast alloy but only load to 1.2k, the RCFs are plastic but load to 800 and 1000Hz respectively. Either way I'd use 24dB L-R slopes on the xover.

I don't think there is any need to add a supertweeter and make it a 4way with any of these.
