I plan to reduce the midrange output (somewhere in the 800 -1200Khz) range as my loudspeakers are a little too close to me for comfort. If there is simple diy circuit that I can install across the driver to reduce these frequencies maybe 2db, 4db, 6db increments - thanks

Invariably, since I stared to play with speakers I have felt the need to reduce their mid-range output.

The only one that I find to have the right mid balance is the LS3/5a.

Please, experiment with a 5 to 8 ohms 5 watts resistor in series with the mid speaker.
It is better to place the resistor in series with the input to the crossover network midrange section, i.e. make the resistor the first componenet in the midrange section instead of the last.
