- diffractions, this can be eliminated with large roundovers. CNC will be needed, and I do not see it as showstopper
- midrange/tweeter directivity mismatch => use of WG for tweeter
- sensitivity ~90dB/1m/2.83V => dual woofers
- overall cabinet dimensions should reasonable, to be able to construct and handle it, ~80l is optimum
- reasonable total cost, no too expensive drivers like RAAL, Bliesma, AT

How to do it:
- dual woofers: 2x Vifa NE225W-08, sensitivity 90-91dB/2.83V/1m, cabinet volume ~70l
- 6-7" midrange, Satori, Vifa NE, Revelators,....
- WG148R or ......

Cabinet could be similar to Thiels. There is also in the link, I cannot attach the image from this PC.

If you follow the thread, Aatto has set a budget of $1500 max, RAAL, may be pushing it. I don't think many members have access to CNC machine.

I think the idea is to get someone offer a package of cnc'd cabinet parts, and possibly drivers + xo components, provided there is enough interest.
