Default audax two34xo and hm170co

Hi all I just stumbled on your site and love it. I am new to the speaker building world and need some help on cab design and x-over. I aquired 2 Audax two34xo tweeters and 2 Audax hm170co (maybe hm170go?) and want to build some cabinets and x-overs. I am pretty good with wood and know basic cabinet building and bracing. But since I am new I have no clue on dimensions for the boxes and need advise on x-over.
Does anyone have a good design or can you help me?
I have read that the tweeters are not the best but since this is what I have to work with, so be it. I just want to build and listen and gradually learn to do it on my own. Then I will get back to being serious about the sound
Can Anybody Help Me? Thankyou in advance !!

From the published data, the HM170C0 and G0 have quite different specs, so you would need to know which you have for anyone to suggest the optimal enclosure (particularly for a reflex enclosure).

If the label is missing, you could measure Fs to identify them. The
C0 is listed as 42Hz, while the G0 is 51.5Hz.

I like the TWO34 as the low Fs means that it can work well even with a simple first-order XO. (But then I'm getting old, and the poor output of the TWO34 above 15kHz doesn't bother me, as I can't hear it anyway!)

The Audax C0 has carbon fiber cone, the G0 has paper cone.

Default audax model number

Thanks for pointing that out and for the replies.
Upon further inspection the correct model number is hm170go.
Does anyone have a good design for this set up with two34xo.
Also what about x-over for these? Will a simple cap and resister do?
Thanks for all help
