Default DIY design for the Visaton FRWS 5?

Does anyone knows of a design with the Visaton FRWS 5 that could be used as a computer speaker? I would like to make a small pc speaker for use at the office so it has to be:
- cheap in case it falls off the desk
- only needs to play very softly as I don't think it will be tolerated at normal volumes
- small as my desk is already overflowing

I could use some of those plastic pc speakers but were is the fun in that? Something that looks a bit out of the ordinary or plain weird would be more suitable.

just for fun I once designed a TL which had 3 of these in, 1 as midhigh, the other 2 as low. never heard if the guy actually built them...

the middle one in a 75cc enclosure, and gets a HP filter of 27uF (or 33uF) (reverse polarity), the other 2 mounted in series with a LP of 2.2mH and 47uF

but it can also be single driver of course:

this one actually was built depth of the cab half of the other one

Thanks! That's the kind of idea I was thinking about. About the size of a pc screen so they'll fit nicely next to it. And simple enough as well. I think I'm going for the one with 3 speakers, but replace the middle one with a Visaton SC4ND.
