I hope davidel94 is only occupied to measure the Qts of his woofers. It was only an assumption, the driver will have a Qts around 1, as cheap drivers often have. Let's wait on the results.

Another method to find out Qts is to use LIMP:

(True for nearly all cheap (high Fs) tweeters.)

You just put this in parallel with the bass/ mid. The simple
treble x/o usually means the skill is getting the bass/mid
to match with proper BSC and complementary x/o point.

I hope the values i found are right they are :
resonance frequency = 60Hz
so what kind of enclosures do you think will be perfect for this woofer and the tweeter remembering that the tweeter behind is sealed?

To answer the question of the enclosure, you need to know one more parameter of the driver: Vas (or Mms). But assuming Vas=23.4 litres (Mms=20g), you have to choose a bass reflex box of 16-20 litres. The minimum vent diameter is 60 mm and the length around 100 mm. You seem to be a very lucky guy. You didn't have any idea buying the two drivers, but they fit. As far as I can see, I even predict, that the result without any additional equalizing will be already quite good!

If you have a free air impedance plot of the woofer, please post it.

Sorry but not a good idea to mix 4 and 8 ohm speakers.

i have the plot, i made it using excell but i'm not so sure about its correctness, because the impedance at resonance is only 13 ohm. In order to make it i used a wien bridge oscillator where i adjusted two potenziometers to vary the frequency, in the output of the amplifier i connected a resistor of 173.6 ohm, measured with multimeter, and then the woofer, i took the voltage across the woofer for every frequency going from 10hz to 100hz with steps of 5hz and from 100hz to 1kHz with steps of 100Hz, then i inverted the formula for the resistor divider to find the impedance of the woofer. The voltage was measured with a common digital multimeter set to AC measures. Did i do right? because if i did wrong also the Qts is wrong.
How can i upload the plot?

Difficult to say. 13 Ohm at 60 Hz is ok, but I'm not sure about the width. Compare your results with the simulation.
