I want to build a good reference MTM setup centered around the W4-1320SJ
Since the Line Array is on the back burner until tax return comes and I can get the drivers I really want, I'm going to move forward for now with an MTM tower build. Im hoping I can get a really good result by adding a few drivers to some of the stock I already have.
I have a few of these and I really like the midrange clarity on them as well as the W3 version (which I have a pair of sitting here as well)

I haven't seen distortion performance on the W4 bamboo cone, but the W3 version has rising HD from 300hz and down. Of course, it also has 0.5mm xmax as compared to the W4's 3mm That said, I love the sound of these bamboo/paper cones and I think they should make for an interesting project.
My first order of business would be choosing the tweeter and bass drivers to mate up with these guys. They have a pretty good sensitivity at 89db 1w/1m.
I have a pair of XT25's coming my way as well. Would they have enough output to keep up with the dual W4's? Other tweeters I have been considering are these:

HiVi RT1.3 http://www.parts-express.com/pe/show...number=297-412
AC G2Si http://www.parts-express.com/pe/show...number=276-400
For bass duties, I really would like to try the Usher 8955A as Ive wanted to for some time. The 7" version tested pretty darn well for FR and HD on Zaphs site, but I'm unsure if one woofer is enough or if I'd need to double up on them. 4 of those could end up stretching the budget beyond what I want to spend.
Other considerations are:
Dayton RS270 http://www.parts-express.com/pe/show...number=295-368
Or perhaps a pair of these-
Peerless 830634 http://www.parts-express.com/pe/show...number=299-245
Any other recommendations/thoughts/concerns? Thanks as always for any input offered.
