Default Add L-pad in Celestion Ditton 10

I got a Celestion Ditton 10 (8 Ohm version), but they are too "bright" compared with Celestion 3. My feeling is exactly similar to below review for Ditton 15.
Celestion Ditton 15 - Review at Audio Nostalgia
I have replaced the electrolytic cap by Solen film cap but without improvement.
I plan to add L-pad circuit in crossover to reduce tweeter output, however I cannot find sensitivity(dB)of tweeter and mid-bass driver, what values of resistors in L-pad is optimum starting trial?

In simple terms, 8 ohms in parallel and 4 ohms in series will bring you down 6dB. As a guess maybe try 1 or 2 ohms in series, then try 10 to 30 ohms in parallel.
