You may want to keep the drivers to yourself until you've bought them, if you're buying them off ebay. You don't want to be competing against anyone else when you bid for stuff.

Are you aiming for high efficiency speakers? By high, over 96 dbs / 2.83v @ 1 metre.

Or medium efficiency, approx 93 dbs?

Or low efficiency, below 90 dbs?

id say medium 

sensitivity (db/watt/m) 94 bass, 94 midrange

tweeter low at 91

Will you be going large for the woofer? 18" or bigger? For lower distortion on bass transients at generous volumes? Or will you be keeping it smaller in order to make it more domestically acceptable?

The tweeter seems low in efficiency. Tweeters tend to be more efficient than the other drivers. Padding them down is OK. Are there any alternative tweeters that would fit in with your design and that you know sound good that are in the 94 db plus range?
