We have 2 beyma CP-550 compression drivers with TD-400 horns.
we used them before in a 4 way setup and thought they sounded really good but now that we have a 3 way setup we never end up using them and we thought it would be a nice idea to try and build top cabinets out of them. 
does anyone have any recommendations on designs we could use and/or drivers we could couple them with etc? 
the TD-400 horn is 42 cm x 26,8 cm

Your pic doesnt work but if its just comp drivers on horns the shape of the box makes no difference at all. Best bet is to make them to a sensible size based on whatever they will be sat on top off. Also if the stack is a decent height its nice to angle the front panel downwards a bit so your not just shooting all the HF into the sky.

Thanks for the reply, we have tilt plates already but i was just wondering if anyone knew Some plans that use this specific driver and Horn combo and what low mid driver would suit it. I forgot to mention that we are using Martin 115 as kick bass so our crossover freq. Will probably be around 250/300 hz

As mentioned above, the box doesn't really matter. You could even put them in a cardboard box and it wouldn't make any difference to the sound!   LOL LOL LOL

Saying that, I'd put them with 2 x 12" drivers, eg. something like the MT122.
