Scanspeak 8545? Seas 10mm tweeter?
Stereophile has review & measurements.

That would be the Scanspeak 18w8545 for midbass &
If the tweeter is a Scanspeak, then it has to be the D2008/8512.
For the box an easy trick to do, is make a regular box out of MDF & then glue hardwood panels on to the top/bottom & sides.

Do anybody have the cut-out drawings for the enclosure?

I've got the crossover network schematic. I'll check it out with the drivers, but i think they are from Dynaudio..
