What about this ? 25-2234S - 25mm Hi-Res Tweeter - TB SPEAKER CO., LTD.
But something like the Wavecor or the seas DXT, both with the waveguide, would be a better match with the 25 cm woofer made by Seas

I don't think it's a good idea.

Wavecor TW030WA11-01 looks like great pretender for the kit by specs. But a few information. Seas H1189 is good as it seems too.

But the most disturbing moment for me is 10" Seas A26RE4 capability to perfom in midrange region. It bothers me.

Well, "it holds" till 1 ( 1k5) kHz then it looses...
Ideally you'd need a 25 cm waveguide to find the same dispersion characteristic at crossover frequency. But it's too big and the nuisance of the horn-effect might be not acceptable ( because of the 3 " driver inside which is too big ).
Till 20 cm diameter ( effective :16-17 cm )it's acceptable, as I did an experiment with an 8" and a 2 " in such big waveguide ( actually I have some dead speakers so ...).
I stopped using woofers bigger than 6 1/2 "

Made the important baffle cuts. The vent was a bit fiddly, but came out great. Hopefully I can make some progress on the bracing tomorrow.

Got the bracing sorted today, well one speaker at least. I'm sure the neighbors love my weekend outdoor routing.
