You will need to either need to measure them or just experiment.

What kind of enclosure were they in in the TV?

I have an old Ferguson radiogram in my lounge it does not work its just a piece of furniture. I have linked up the drivers to a amp and they work but sound terrible. I suspect its down to the cabinet which is awful. Just a bit of flappy fiberboard and the rear and no internal dampening. Could I built a MDF cabinet within a cabinet?

It sounds like the driver is mounted OB. If they actually chose a driver suited to OB, that may be the best way to use it. If you want to keep it in the radiogram just do a new baffle to replace the fibreboard. But part of the problem could be the radiogram around it.

It could also just be a poor driver.

MDF is not the best material to use.

Yes, i might just give it a miss then. The is an audio exhibition locally at the end of the month. Mark Audio are there i might go and take a listen. If I like them i'll buy some drivers. There seem to be a few cabinet designs around for them and there baffle step compensation seems to be one of the easiest options for a first build?
