hello,
A store next to my house went bankrupt and sold a few drivers with a very low price.
i bought the following:
3 x BD5801-W (MW5801 Driver)
2 x BD0124-W (SL6503 Tweeter)
1 x BD0713-W (MW7005 Driver)

i know that i have uneven number of drivers but i got them all in a package deal from the store.

i would like to build a pair of bookshelf spekaers.
for that i will use:
2 x BD5801-W (MW5801 Driver)
2 x BD0124-W (SL6503 Tweeter)
(all the other drivers i have no use for them).

Can someone please help me with the planning of the speakers?
i have some experience with buillding 2 subwoofer's, but this is my first try for bookshelf speakers.

I am ready to give away the spare MW5801 Driver for whoever help me.

It will probably be difficult to create a speaker design without knowing the full specificatios for those drivers. Any way you can find that out?

First off, are the drivers any good? Second off, even if they are, then it will still be hard to design a crossover for them. If you don't care about the sound quality, then you may be able to make a simple crossover that is good enough for you app. You are probably better off throwing them on the bay and going with one of the DIY speakers that have already been designed like here.

Do you care about sound quality at all? If so, then throw them on the bay and build an already designed project. Without the specs, it will be difficult to design a speaker. If you don't care about the sound quality, then buy a pre-built crossover from Parts Express and build a box.

i've contacted polk audio tech personal and they told me that the drivers are used with their line of the inwall speakers.
the crossover should be 2000-3000 hz and that i should build a sealed box.
