Default What cabinet for a Audax HT210A2 8"

I am in the process of buying a pair of Audax 8" HT210A2. What kind of cabinet or baffle would be suitable for this driver?
TQWT?
Open Baffle?
Im thinking of using it with a 1W SET amp for near field listening. Mostly I listen to acoustic music, jazz, lowcore, and vocals are important. As a life long Magnepan lover a dipole would be great. Anyone have any suggestions?

These are rated 100-17000Hz
They look more like 100-13000Hz
Nice sensitivity though

Id like to have them on a open baffle together with a woofer, and maybe exchange them for Visaton B200 when a deluge of money comes comes my way.

They have a bit short Xmax though

Here is a nice application of the speaker. In "The Joke" Voigt pipe.

They look like they'd work fine in an OB FAST.

FAST is a new acronym for me, I did a search and found it is about open baffle with a woofer crossed over at 200Hz or so and in a box or reflex port.

But what does F. A. S. T. stand for?

I can never remember exactly. Something like FullRange and Subwoofer Technology... a FR used as a mid-tweeter with a helper woofer, XO usually 150-400 Hz or so.
