    Xmax of .3" at 20Hz (also it's resonant frequency) will be pretty easy to hit in free air and it won't be loud to warn you.

    3152A? maybe... depends on what you're crossing over to. I'd look for systems that include the 4648 family as its bass component.

    Not nearly as blingy, but I grew up with one of these (& it was old -then-) ... filled a very large basement with impressive (at the time) sound/volume.

    Frame or cone?

    I would think a dye would be preferred for darkening up a paper cone (although it might not cover up problem areas).

    I like the idea of a larger port, but if you were -really- wanting to keep the stock look (and port aperture), you could simply cut a larger opening in the inside panel... as a thought.
