That's very interesting.

So to overcome brightness or overly loud highs/mids would I add a resistor in series and listen for changes, but if brightness continues at given frequencies, add a similar value resistor in parallel.

Is that what you're instructing?

What ohm values would you incrementally try when doing adjustments?

Say you have an 8 ohm resistor in parallel with a speaker which is (nominally) 8 ohms as well. That's four ohms total. Put a four ohm resistor in series to make a total of 8 ohms again. Now the signal Voltage is divided and the speaker gets half.

From here if you reduce the series resistance you should increase the parallel resistance and vice versa to maintain a balance of 8 ohms (not that you must stay at 8 ohms, but it keeps the crossover frequency).
