Hello Wolf, thanks a lot for your answer.
I'll go for a 15 cm scan speak.

My choice for the tweeter was just driven by 20 years of listening, Scan speak are the only ones that goes high enough without hurting my ears. I have had Gamut Speakers (L5 and L7, based on 18 cm scan peak revelator woofers + scan speak tweeter R2904/700005), Sonus Faber Elipsa and Stradivari (medium 15 cm modified scan speak classic serie + scan speak tweeter R2904/700009). The D3004/66200 has a very nice frequency response curve so I said why not, but I could use also the R2904 as it has been used in previous speakers with 18 and 15 cm mid without problems.

I agree that a 15 cm would be more consistent in terms of crossover possibilities, mainly if I use the two 26W/4558, as they can be crossed at 300-400Hz.

Well project in stand by, but not canceled. I wanted to make speakers more or less like Dalhquist, with a closed box for the bass unit and medium + tweeter on an open baffle on top of the sub. A friend of mine did one pair and it's impressive. Basically my only problem is which kind of medium unit can be used on a small open baffle, I thing it does not matter for the tweeter, but on the medium yes, I've found nothing concerning the datas to check for the possibilities of using a driver on an open baffle.
And still not decided to get a 32W/8878 (or 4878) or two 26W/4558. The 26' are certainly of a lower quality , but will be certainly more quickly responsive, and allows to use a 12MU instead of a 18M or 18W, with would be better for a clean mid range and tweeter coupling.
I've a small company I have to care with and 2018 has been a good year, so I'm able to start the project now.
