That's cool. Do you know what sort of look is out? Is it the fat, black box that she objects to?

Parts Express has some rather nice pro 10" woofers on clearance at the moment.

FWIW there is a very large A/V company I gig for who use powered speakers on a stick every day. They are used for high end functions, meetings and weddings at fancy resorts. The solution to ugly? White Spandex covers. Simple, elegant and easy to use. I can't remember anyone ever objecting to them.

I think it comes down to more width than anything. The wider it gets, the boxier the appearance, which I think is the issue. The sizing issue is more likely going to be a waveguide problem than a woofer problem. And those woofers sound like they are worth investigating!

Default Perhaps worth taking into consideration?

Eminence deltalite II 2510-4, capable of playing 55Hz/-3dB in 2cuft vented, 2.5" voice coil, 250Wrms.

Eminence psd 2002-8

Eminence WG10, 70x60 deg, dictates a box width of minimum 11.6".

A crossover point in the 1.4kHz range.

Drivers+waveguides total to 490$/pair.

There is BH410 exponential horn with a more friendly 5.59" width/height.

Good choices.

I was thinking of these with a suitable horn/waveguide.
Celestion T5736A B-52 TF1020 10" 150 Watt Professional Woofer 8 Ohms
PRV Audio D280Ti-B 1" Titanium Horn Compression Driver 8 Ohm 2/3-Bolt
Screw on or bolt on, depending on your horn.

That was the speaker I was just looking at and the Selenium D220Ti, but that PRV looks like a much better deal for a very similar output. I have never had experience with PRV so I didn't even consider them

Celestion and PRV are both excellent in the bang for the buck department.

PRV is also from Brazil. I understand there is crossover from Selenium (now JBL owned) but I don't know how much. Either will work well.

So I have been playing with the Celestion TF1020 and the Selenium D220Ti in VituixCad and this is what I have come up with so far. How can I improve it?

To improve on that, you'll have to actually build and test it. Seems unlikely that you'd get anything that good, but certainly you've got a great start!
