I really like your design, but it seems to be hard to source the drivers.

The drivers have been discontinued, I'm assuming that's why the TH-50 was as well. The Orion HCCA152 will work in the design with slight modification, but it cost a bit more

You might look at building a pair of sealed PPSL with 12s and a Linkwitz transform to get the 20hz. A cabinet with the same footprint as the SH-50 and adjust the height as needed for net volume (I'm guessing 18"~24" would give the best height for imaging from the SH-50).

This would give minimum group delay and a pair stacked MTM style would give a stable pattern through the crossover region, and delay might not even be needed.

Any suggestion for drivers?

I would choose the Dayton RSS-315HF (8 ohm version). Probably similar to those used by Ocean Way in some of their monitors.
25 Eliminator Daytona, 30 daytona, E-ticket - YouTube

You could also mount the drivers (PushPull) like Tannoy does in their VQ-range:

Rojoh,

Push pull means having one driver magnet out, both the woofers in the picture you attached are cone out.
"V" loading as in the picture does allow the use of a pair of larger drivers in a smaller frontal area, two 15" or 18" could be mounted in a "V" with the same frontal area as an SH-50.

Yes, You're right. I ment (but didn't explain it well ) that he could copy the the box shape, but flip one of the drivers.

I also always forget about SH-50s size. On pictures they often look so compact. One option could be something like swedish Procella does:

"Any suggestion for drivers?"

Given you modest output requirements, and given that there will be four drivers, any half-way reasonable driver should do (really). Push-pull really reduces the distortion so that an inexpensive driver can sound quite good.

I was looking at some TC Sounds Epic 12s for a friend, they have around 22mm of x-max and are about $200 each. I don't think you need anything quite that extreme.
