Default what to do with a pair of 5" 'woofers' ?

specifically these (warning: link to PDF)

Wire them up in series, make a sub?

make a BLH?

stick a tweeter and make a cab out of mdf to improve my cab building skills?

hood ornaments?

Your link is broken.

By the way, 5" is not really subwoofer material imho

Link still don't work but without any data I suggest using them as mids in 3way or make a pair of little computer speakers.

Maybe a vintage driver (discontinued).

If that's the correct datasheet, it would seem they are suitable as a midrange but not as a woofer. Fs is high and xmax is small. Efficiency is excellent, but the response curve seems ugly. Perhaps the measurement contains some reflections or cabinet resonances?

It's been measured mounted on an IEC baffle which should be 135x165cm.

Good specs for a BLH driven with a matching impedance amp.

inductor, what do you think of a BIB design? or a BLH? maybe a simple BLH/TQWT/QWT is simpler to construct...

but how do i figure out the dimensions? :/
