The BF32 is not very loud but there are several alternatives from Visaton. Also the Aurasound NSW2 and Peerless P830970.

The Peerless is already a bit too large, the Aurosound might fit. The efficiency of the BF32 would not be a problem, because I want to do a active setup.

The efficiency becomes a problem once the driver goes intro compression or later hits mechanical limits.
I would not expect too much from two watts But for the price give it a try.

I will test the BF32 and see how it performs. But there is still lots of work to do until I can really test drivers. The tweeter housing is not even designed yet...

What about the Vifa OX20SC00-04 tweeter? With a 24db crossover it should be possible to use it down to 1.5kHz. What do you think?

The problem is the high Fs. The response rolls off at 1100Hz. That roll-off and the filter slope combined will give you phase issues in the cross-over. Also, I would assume that distortion goes up.
Imo, this tweeter should only be used 2Khz and up.

I think I'm gonna do some tests with some small fullrange drivers to see how they perform. Still haven't finished the design of the tweeter housing :-(
