What I did was, I bought a speaker grille and mounted it to the grille. Then discovered that the drum rim wouldn't secure it so cut out a drum head and used it to attach the speaker to the drum sheel.

Drilled out the vent hole and installed an XLR jack. Wired it together but used a 10K ohm resistor across the terminals, and a 100K ohm resistor in series with one of the wires as an L pad to bring down the hot signal.

6.5" woofer 8 ohm.

Also packed it off to reduce resonance by packing it with shipping peanuts (also what I use inside my drums as muffling- fun to watch them bounce around)

Bought a snare stand and a tom mount to put together to hold it all together.

Some references I found:

Yeah, at our last gig. Our soundman said it added some good low end that he blended in with the mic he normally uses on the kick. Sounded huge out front!
