My experience is exactly the opposite. I haven't heard a decent dome in ages, compared to good CDs. Better dispersion control with CDs too.

huh, I was hoping to get away with one build, it does not worth it to order the cabs and then realize if we need to change something, I will wait until I get the drivers and start measuring then

I still think the Morel CAT378 is a good choice but I m totally open if we go with CD as well, if I remember correctly JBL Selenium D220Ti was also mentioned before, good curves and good price! horn for mentioned CD : Selenium HM17-25, this one is interesting Dayton Audio H08RW 8" Round Waveguide 1-3/8"-18 TPI it is a 8" waveguide for CD and it is 8", it looks good with 8" midrange

Some of us have high expectations for this design. :-)
General nitpicking, fiddling with various details, followed by further tweaking is to be expected.

Faital HF10AK best tweeter period for a 3 way, it is clean airy and sweet! I think the horn is the ST100 that i used.

Also see here for inspiration: The-Loudspeaker. Have seen several positive posts about that particular waveguide, although I believe that matching the exit angle of the CD to the throat angle of the waveguide/horn is fairly important, so a complimentary pairing needs to be chosen. (note: not an expert here)
