If you're willing to place your monitor right up against the wall then you may get and extra 3db due to room gain but that is probably not an ideal listening position.
Where are you getting these figures? The MW16P-8 is ~88 dB, and the Kairos is ~85 dB.

The intrinsic efficiency of a driver is different than the final efficiency of the final speakers because of baffle step correction for a 2way system.

You can also look at Nymeria or troels gravesen's site. Many good two-ways are on both sites. Also look on the SEAS website at their kits. Kairos is not old or outdated. The creator of Audio Physic speakers also designed a two-way similar to the Kairos, which is posted on this site under the Vendor's Bazaar forum. Madisound also sells the new SB Acoustics kits, including yet another two-way variant of the drivers used in the Kairos.

Hmm I haven't had anyone complain about the balance of the Anniversario. I just received the latest version of the tweeter and will design a new crossover just for you.
