Well Romy:

If you wanted to stick to some known quantities, you might do well to look at these soon to be released drivers from Scan Speak which seem fairly promising, and might work quite well. They are rather inexpensive according to their indicative prices and so may not be such an expensive experiment. The excursion of 58mm is rather good, they are current production and you could easily add more as you feel necessary.
