Default University M12-T 3-way drivers

I have just picked up a set of University M12-T 3-way drivers and have to decide on a cabinet design. Has anyone worked with vintage 3-way speakers, and if so, what cabinet did you use? I am currently reading through the Karlson thread, but thought I would ask specifically what people were using with such driver designs as this.

No one here has ever built using vintage coax or triax speakers?

Take them to a shop and measure T/S. In alternative you can measure them yourself.

quite a few, just not this one. Short of taking measurements though, back then, drivers tended to have a sameness from brand to brand, so I'd be surprised if Jensen, EV or similar specs might not be close enough, then tune it by ear with damping, vent adjustment, i.e. ~ 5-6 ft^3 tuned to 40-45 Hz.

Thanks for the info. They came in the mail yesterday and I hooked them up sans cabinet (yet to be built). They really sounded pretty darn good.

I think I am going to put them into 12" Karlson cabinets and see how that goes. Worst case is that they sound bad and I use the cabs for sub-woofers.
