Default EnABL Fostex 168e Sigma?

I have been very intrigued with EnABL techniques. I have a pair of Fostex 168EZ-Sigma in zHorns. I was wondering if anyone has their 168EZ-Sigma EnABL'ed. I would like to try it on my pair but little confused on how to go about since EZ-Sigma drivers have unique geometry. I would appreciate any help.

Dave, if possible, a few pics taken during the process could be helpful.
And much appreciated.

Stock measures, and the pre-treat on them. I'll try to remember to take a picture tomorrow.
