Default Modified Active Bifrost Design

I'm looking for a new set of speakers, handy with electronics and audio, the Bifrost design from Seas ( is basically the kind of thing I need... simple, high-quality, two-way.

Looking at what's out there, though, I plan on making some modifications to the basic design, as follows:

1. I will use an AMT for highs, which appears to be a much better deal than the default Bifrost-spec tweeter, and a technology I'm interested in. My research points me toward

2. I will swap out the paper woofer for a magnesium woofer from Seas. I'm a little more concerned with this change - the magnesium seems to have a better reputation online, and is a superficially similar design, but I'm interested in knowing if anybody thinks this is a mistake. Woofer I plan to use:

3. I will use a 2-ch plate amplifier in each speaker with DSP for power and active crossover:

4. I will use a minidsp for room correction and subwoofer integration.

Is the above folly? Any input, ideas, or warnings?
