Maybe cats play a major role in making more musical hifi gear. Ever since I installed a cat in my house, both my amplifier and loudspeaker designs have gotten significantly better.

I will be very curious to see the wood discolorations now
It looks like liquidambar wood... isn't it ?

That looks like an Alnico magnet assembly. Definitely not an "Off the rack" Seas driver. (Rather light gauge interconnect cable.)

Looks like a A26RE4 with a Seas Exotic Serie Magnet...

We used to have a cat once that loved to stretch its front arms out and use speakers as a scratching post to sharpen up its nails.

I would be interested in how you are mitigating against this.

That driver looks like a cross between the Seas A26RE and the Seas Exotic W8

Audax TW034 would be a good tweeter to match to the A26. Troels G. uses it in a waveguide he designed as essentially a drop in for the high-end, very expensive SEAS tweeter.

The role of the boxes/damping/box materials in contributing to the overall acoustic of these types of speakers should not be overlooked.The drivers,crossovers and baffle size are only part of their sound.
