On the bright side, you can still participate in the forums when you're deaf.

How do you think it would look if we put cpl 7" drivers next to that horn. Again I am seeking solutions not arguments.
You were not looking for any solutions, unless I am misinterpreting your post, as you were simply asking if you had a problem. You also only asked a single grammatically erroneous question, not multiple straight forward questions as you seem to believe. Several people posted their points of view to help you out. I don't think any post went "way off topic".

For what it's worth, I don't care if there is a couple 7" drivers next to a giant horn. It's a speaker, not a projector screen. Just needs to do it's job, which has nothing to do with appearances for my usage

I only asked one simple question is right. Will two ported speaker with the given tune work together. That is all that I was looking for advice on. I am not looking for what "someone" would do or "there are better solutions for X". Of course there are better solutions out there I own a bunch of them. These are for a very specific application where looks are just as important as the sound. That is why these drivers and horn were chosen. I am with you guys about I don't care how my speakers look just how they preform but I can assure you the rest of the world is not that way.

If you have the means to change crossover points/slopes and have a mic/software to measure how things are going, you'll most likely be able to combine ported mains and ported subs with no issues. I've done it in the past, it is a little more work but totally do-able.

What are the requirements/performance goals?

This room needs to be super loud. We are shooting for over 135db output. Room will be 22'x18' ish 11' ceilings. These need to be so loud it can damage your hearing loud.
so you want your mains to produce bass frequencies at 135db? That's basically what you are saying you will do if you cross them over that low.
