Default Will these work in a TL project?

I have a pair of reflex boxes I built a few years back using Vifa pl-14 midbass, Morel md-30 tweet, and a series crossover design by lc technologies in a 2.5 way arrangement. Would these drivers/crossover lend themselves to a TL project, possibly in a mtm arrangement, retaining the .5 way for baffle step? These speakers sound good now - I am just wanting to try something different. Thanks for input.
Jim

You should be able to transfer the components as presently mounted in the reflex box to a TL. However, if you plan on making changes in the design, like going from a 2.5 way to an MTM, you might run into complications. Just as you might run into complications if you transferred these components into an MTM arrangement into an identically sized and tuned reflex box to the one you are using now.

I wouldn't be running them as mtm, just using that arrangement on the baffle. The would still run as a 2.5 way. Another possibility might be to put the .5 driver on back side as a dipole type of arrangement. I think planet 10 is fond of this idea.

Dipole, (rear speaker pulls in when front speaker pushes out), or bipole, (both push out and pull in together)?

Bi-pole - my mistake. Supposed to accomplish baffle step comp like tmm, without comb action.
