Jim Dickison replied to Andy Busch's discussion A speaker I found in the trash in the group Building a Cigar Box Guitar 101
"The small one is a tweeter... intended to reproduce high frequencies. You wouldn't want to use it alone. It is fed through a capacitor to keep low frequencies from damaging it."

"Absolutely you can play through a bass amp. In fact, Fender's Bassman amp used to be quite popular with guitar players."

Hey Jim, Thanks none taken  I was always an over the top kind of builder. So I needed to create a case to match my builds. My customers ar pros so they ask me to build them Cigar box gitty's that they can play in a big house. This lead me to expensive builds that were on the road and needed to be protected. I understand they are not for everyone but we all can dream.  Thanks for checking out my work, The cloth case in the pics I built for Tom Petty
