Default Need some suggestions for desktop build...

I took apart a pair of old computer speakers and want to do something with them.
I did some looking around and I believe these are the speakers that were in them.
2-3/8" x 3-9/16" Mini Speaker 45 Ohm
Is there anything I could build for these to improve on the mediocre sound they were producing in their factory BR's?

It's a "great Intercom speaker"
what review would you expect from a 2 .5 $ piece ??

Also the majority of pc speakers are just build for their purpose .
Usually they have a shielded magnet , to protect old CRT monitors in the vicinity .
It's not a matter of price , but you should go for the 25 $ piece

Probably an array of this might work as open baffle mid-tweeter. Add a cheap woofer in a sealed or ported cabinet to do the bass.

throw 'em away rather than waste effort on them - your time is more valuable than a few $.

This is what i did for computer speakers: Martello enclosure for FR88EX

I'm not looking for anything spectacular. Just found the pair and I have some time and spare wood, so I thought I might do something with them. Not in dire need of computer speaker. Mainly just wanted to play with some designs I haven't gotten a chance to play with yet. Figured I'd start with an OB, but wasn't sure what other designs would work, given the drivers T/S.
Beautiful speakers, Bigun! But I'm not looking to spend any cash, atleast not for a little while.
