    Welcome to the forum!

    Without a device such as the DATS system, it would be near impossible to make an ideal box from scratch for those drivers, however you can estimate the size of the box originally used and use that volume for the new box.

    If you’re up for the challenge however it would probably be worth buying a new set of drivers from the likes of partsexpress (or a similar shop that might be available to you). That way you can get drivers that probably sound a lot better than the salvaged ones and most probably for a price less than what would cost you in wood/MDF (there are some really great cheap drivers out there). All that and you get the measurements which will enable you to design an ideal box for said driver!

    It should also be worth noting that unless using the electronics from the device it might sound pretty bad since it is likely they are using plenty of DSP to make it sound good.

    Hope this helps,
