Only a fool would muck up a reference level speaker incorporating the world's finest tweeter with an idea like this.

I have a different take, I think you should try it.
I have owned many Dynaudio speakers including the "baby" Consequence, Confidence 5. I loved the sound, but I do think Dynaudio can use more air and extension.
I have also heard Elac with 4 Pi tweeter and I have to say it's one of the very best out there, rivaling (if not better than) MBL 101E. I think you will find a pleasant surprise how much better the 4 Pi can add to any good speakers, Elac is much more popular outside of US and very commonly added to high end speakers.
German has proven many times adding an omni directional tweeter or super tweeter can do magic to any speakers, it will also remove lots of room interference issue. I have heard the original Consequence numerous times, having the tweeter place that close to the floor does have its drawback. not sure if adding Elac will solve the design issue, but if I have to guess, it should do more good than harm knowing how a regular Consequence sounds.
some people just can't accept what he owns is not the best on earth. I have owned many, if they are not good enough, they go back on Audiogon. what's the big deal?
I will never claim what I own is perfect especially speakers, no speakers are perfect and I have heard too many in my life. Not MBL 101E, not Dynaudio Evidence, not Avalon Isis, not Rockport, not Sonus Faber Stradivarius, not...... you get the idea
