I've had my speakers for about a half year. I was planning of using them in a ported cabinet of 17l netto tuned at 41Hz using a br-pipe with 6cm diameter and 24cm length (flared).
A friend of mine uses these woofers in a 16l netto cabinet tuned at 43Hz using a br-pipe with 5cm diameter and 15cm length. I listened to his speakers before deciding on building mine but found the br-pipe getting a little noisy on loud levels (very loud!) so I decided to make mine a bit wider, flared and with pipe exiting on the back.

I once made a FR measurement of this Monacor driver (in IB).
The driver has serious problems in midband !
I did not use the driver. I would use the Focal or some other good driver instead.

Good luck!
Thank you for your contribution but I always find this very strange. A lot of people like this speaker and are happily listening to it. But in every thread about this speaker there are always some people that say it doesn't sound good/right or whatever. Can you show me some measurements or at least explain the problems that this driver has?

I do agree that the reputation this driver has for being very good up to 5Khz is a little exaggerated (as can be seen on the measurements of K+T) but I do think that it has great potential when crossed between 2Khz and 2,5Khz to a good tweeter. Especially for the price.

I don't know anything about Monacor except what I've read on the 'net, but I have to wonder about their quality control. It's possible that some versions are as good, and some are as bad, as people say.

That's right: some units are good, others are better be left alone.

Units that are proven to be good are:
SPH-135KEP
SPH-165KEP
SPH-300KE
