Seeing that you're in St. Louis, call Logic Systems and ask for the recone guy. He, or they, might have a box that you can use, with the appropriate inside packing, of course..

Oversized box (duh) and form fitting liquid foam if you can get it. If not block the back spider to keep anything from entering the back of the speaker. Use firm foam on the bottom, place the magnet on the foam cone up. Block the magnet all around with firm foam so it can not slip sideways. Use air pillows around the speaker. Cover the cone with thick box cardboard that fits the box size, 2 layers thick, cushion the top and make sure the speaker does not slide or move when the box is shut. DO NOT USE PEANUT FOAM. This has worked very well for me in the past.
