If want something "good for the money" get yourself the Gradient W160AL8 driver. I built a TL with it and like it very much.
Doesn´t work as a fullranger though as "advertised" by Klang+Ton.
I mated it with a Tangband but would use a Veravox3 or tweeter if I should modify it in the future.
But see here:

Maybe a good point to resumate what we're at

There are some good driver combo's suggested.

The tl-calculations are no problem. I can design my speaker.

I am, hower, a nono on the xo part.

i REALLY like the 1 cap xo (if you made your own am, paistakingly choosing as little components in the signal path, you DONT want 50 components in your xo!)

I am currently bidding on a viva xt25 tweeter, ad that seems a good one 4 sure. And i like the looks!

Can anybody tell me more how to handele the xo part?

Bas

(i don't mind having to build a few prototypes bfore the actual line length is decided)

Zaph measured it so check his web www.zaphaudio.com
1st order crossover depends on drivers you choose. It is definitely possible to make a 1st order on XT25, question is will that be best xo for that tweeter? Distortion is pretty high below 1kHz. Hmmm. I cannot swear that a 4.7uF cap will be enough to get best of it.
You should ask someone who worked with it. If i have to judge by numbers I would stay away from XT25 if first order is a must.
Seas 27TDFC seems much better for that purpose. It is even cheaper. Also a noferro version (27TDC) seems nice

if i wouls want to look for a first order filtered tl. what should i look for in tweeter and bass speaker. I can do my own research, but i would have to know what to look for.

For that vifa tweeter: currently, the bid is $1. I think that's quite a bit of mass in the equation. Could it be mated with that peerless driver mentioned before (the HDS - 134 / 850488)

I like the peerless, because it is like the one in the flatline i mentioned at the strat of this topic.

This might meand a bit more components in the crossover, but i the component count stays below, say, 5 or so, that's okay with me, but i sometimes see xo's with 10+ in it.
