Qts 0.76 & frequency respons -> configure them like a mini - KYW's Supravox 215 Bicone's (and place them near the wall @ ~0.40 m) and they'll make a very nice cheap solution.

Combine more for more power / efficiency.

If the sounds suits you, add a sub or a midbass xo @ 300 hz.

Too bad these kind of drivers can't be found in The Netherlands (for cheap DIY solutions for friends and family).

And the 9dB peak at 7kHz will make you nostalgic for your mother-in-law...

Couldn't you remove that with a simple LCR filter? (At the cost of efficiency...)

Sure, but there goes the advantage of the speaker in the 1st place: low cost.

sounds like someone's expecting alittle to much from a 4" driver that costs 69 cents

I still don't get your point. Most people on this board probably couldn't bear listening to a speaker like that without a filter, and if you budget total cost of a speaker that uses such a filter, you quickly decide to buy a different driver that can be run straight through with the same money.

Default You could do this...

Those drivers are a pain. You can get them to sound "okay" with some cone treatment and xover massaging.
