Question Seas CA18RNX in 2-way with LPG26nafm?

I'm trying to decide if the CA18rnx would be nice enough for home use....I have a pair in my car with some LPG26's and they are very nice and detailed, just not exactly sure how they would sound in a home setting.

How much different would they sound in home paired with some LPG26nafm's that i already own? Would this be a very nice combo, as far as realism, detail, and tonality go? I'm trying to get as much SQ as possible. I love the sound of the ones in my car and really would like to have that detail and realism in the house for music purposes, and an occasional movie. The reason why i think i may choose this driver again is that i would like to reuse my LPG26's and the ca18 is one of the few high enough detailed drivers that arn't too expensive, and can go high enough for an appropriate xover point for the LPG's...around 3.5k.

I'm not sure what alignment yet or if i should do say a MTM with 4 of them As i'm not exactly sure how much lobing it would make or should i simply do a TM, But i already own the LPG26nafm and would really like to reuse it in my next design, as it would save me some money in the long run. I will have my xovers made for me. And my Reciever puts out 100w at 4ohms....Think this will be good enough for a reference system?

I'd really like to have the whole response out of box +/- 1db or so, really all the way down to a good 50hz, to meet with my Tempest.

Sound like a affordable good plan, and if so which design, TM, or MTM (if i can afford the extra pair), or even a MTM open baffle for best overall SQ ....

EDIT: never could find any designs using the CA18rnx, or LPG26's....whats wrong with them...they work VERY nicely in car.

There's nothing wrong with them, just that no one has used that particular combination before. There are a lot of drivers out there, and people tend to stick to what is known to work well, or what has exceptional performance.
