    If you're stick on that tweeter, you won't find many choices sinc emost DIY designers don't particularyl care for it that much. However, if you are more flexible, I can recommend dozens of good designs. Do you need something shielded? (If you have a big screen, you don't need shielding. If the mains will be more than 2 feet from the TV, you probably only need a shielded center.)

    There's a few threads at the DIY forum at www.htguide.com of speakers using the Vifa ring radiator.

    In a big screen, all the electronics are in the center of the bottom of the TV. The only thing that could be a problem is the subwoofer.

    Do you have a budget?

    150-300 for each speaker for crossovers and speakers.
