Default Choosing a tweeter for something like a proac 2.5 clone

I wanted to try for a 2 way system (something like the proac 2.5)

i got those 8" woofers


and i wanted to choose a tweeter that would fit with the whole thing
i dont want to go too exotic as i dont have too much money, and i would prefer to choose a tweeter out of this store near where i live.

i cant choose wich tweeter to use, theres some erixon's there, some vifa...
tweeters are on page 4, 17 and 18

all of them are around 20$ cdn

(if you guys notice anything else thats good, say it i spotted those mid-bass on top of page 5.. dont really know if they are good.. they look like decent drivers)

these are the 8" drivers i got, and i would like to use for something...

Umm...if your going to clone something you need to pretty much use the exact drivers and xover design, otherwise what's the point in cloning? Putting in different components could drastically change the sound of the speaker which you are trying to clone. BTW - the proac 2.5 uses a scan 6" midrange/midbass, not an 8".

the proac uses a 7" driver i think,
Anyway, i meant "something like" the design, and encolosure design...

just... i saw some pics of the proac 2.5 and i liked the design..
