Greets!

Unfortunately, we're not wizards, so with no driver info beyond them being 4", about all I can say is build T.C.'s BIB and experiment with stuffing up in the pointed end, around the driver, and down on its 'floor' until you get the best sound and it is what it is.

You can try it on the back like the above.

- Piezo on back connected to .33 uf capacitor + 20 ohm resistor across. -

You're welcome, but I sure didn't get this from your earlier posts. Anyway, here's what I came up with to allow anyone to 'roll their own': http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/showt...24#post1229324
