Default Options for paper coaxial with soft dome tweeter?

All I saw that's close is Seas L12RE but it uses aluminum cone.

Anything out there 4"-5" coax, paper cone, soft dome tweeter?

regards,
Herman

Why? 4-5 inch is nicely handled by a bunch of FR drivers.

I don't believe any exist. As far as a FRD sounding as good, not to my ears.

The miniature waveguide looks like a diffraction nightmare.

but, exactly how would I do that? to cut out the phase plug without destroying the driver? Or do you mean to just remove the dust cap and run the wires out of the vented pole piece??

any drivers you are referring to specifically?
