I want to expand my dynaudio surround system with athmos height speakers. Coaxial is supposed to work fine as athmos height speakers.
I understand the tone of the new height speakers should match the existing dynaudio speakers.
As far as I know dynaudio never made any coax drivers -and I don't want to spend a lot on height speakers.
So I have a list of possible options:

Morel ultra tempo integra 6.5"
Focal Flax evo PC 165 FE
MarkAudio Alpair 10P

The Focal Flax seems very popular and cost about as much as the morels.
But I really prefer textile tweeters. Many metallic tweeters sound harsh in my ears.
I believe the morels soft dome tweeters would match the dynaudio silk domes better...
I can't find t/s parameters for the morels. So creating optimal sealed enclosure for them would be difficult. But I guess any large box would be fine?

MarkAudio Alpair 10P are cheap fullrangers and their off axis response seems very nice -So they should work well as athmos height speakers. But they are only rated to 30W. My Amp is 120W...

So I'm leaning towards the morels. But no t/s parameters and possibly quality issues worry me.

Maybe I'm missing other affordable coax drivers with soft dome tweeters?

I'm in EU. So tax makes CDT audio expensive
CDT Audio makes them. How they compare, I can't say...

Audiofrog GS62
GS62 seems overkill for an atmos height speaker -and way above my budget.
I don't need my Atmos overhead speakers to be full range. Reference level from 140Hz-15KHz should be fine.
Tonal timbre matching my dynaudio and wide dispersion is what I need...

Found morel hydro 6.5" coax on sale for 200€
Except for the paper cone the hydro driver looks very similar to my dynaudio drivers. I do like the "paper woofer sound"
So will probably purchase 2 pairs for atmos height front and back.
