The CA15RLY is my personal favourite. Use slightly larger cabinets than recommended by Seas. I have used as large as 17,5 litres vented pr driver, but that may make the drivers a bit unstable if you use "only" two drivers.

I am using 4 pcs of the L15RLY on each side, but have tried the setup with CA15 too. Those two are quite similar in the bass region. It does definately not need a subwoofer.

Except for the top end (and giving up 1.5 dB in sensitivity) the CSS is a stiff competitor to the Jordan and at $280 USD for 4 a whole lot more cost effective.
