Default Alpair 5.2 WAW bass driver size

I’m making a pair of WAW for a friend. We’ve settled on the alpair 5.2 but am unsure which bass assist driver size to use. Cabinets can be stand mount or floor standing.

Looking at SBAcoustics drivers of 5-8 inch sizes which will run downwards from about 300hz. Crossover will likely be PLLXO

Dual opposed drivers is also an option

Are there any rules/benefits regarding certain woofer sizes?
I collect projects - building them is another hobby altogether

I'm currently building a WAW and have settled on an 8inch bass unit. Monacor SPH 8M. Generally the bigger the better since you are only going up to 300Hz or so.
