Design Goals:

Driver Selection:
Buy Parts Express speaker Dayton Audio B652 #33-652 and remove all inside parts. add Dayton woofer #295-305 and tweeter Morel MDT-22 #277-062.

Enclosure Design:
use terminal on back and add fabric batting inside. Because of small speaker volume a port could not be added.

Enclosure Assembly:
Use old speaker screws to put in new speakers. Use glue gun to glue crossover to side of cabinet.

Crossover Design:
Use Dayton #260-140 and hook up as usual. Add 16ohms of resisters to positive lead to tweeter to lower its volume. Add a Zobel circuit of a 47uf capacitor in line with 8ohm resister between woofer terminals. Make capacitor end go to + terminal
