    Yes and no its all there i have plenty of cabinetry skills ive build a few subwoofer enclosures in the past granted there is more fudge room but since them days i have learned patients and other skills so im confident in my skill set. As long as the parts do what there soposed to do everything should work out just fine. I like your honesty its hard to.come buy. Im going to grab that book in the meantime and do some reading. I think its worth it if im going to make a real hobby of this it would be cool to learn how to design xovers and and how they work.

    They're software solutions for this not to mention active crossovers like MiniDSP and ... cough ... the dsp408.

    A big first project, but it comes with premade crossovers, that will help. Good luck.

    so i did some research, you can buy a kit to build a set of these for 500 bux for the major components. I think once i save up i will go this route. Thanks for all the input once i aquire all the parts and set aside some time i will start. Thank you all again for your input.

    I meant to be really tactless. I'll try harder.

    djg is perhaps a little tactless, but essentially right. I think you've bit off farrrr more than you can chew.

    I split the low, mid and highs with a Loudspeaker Management System, an RCF DX-2006. There are separate amps for each band.

    Fully active show me. Ide like to see how you do this. Do you drive highs with separate amp from mids?

    If you want a hobby of building multiple DIY speakers, carry on as you are. Bring money.
    If you want a pair of speakers, find a kit or design by a known designer.
    If you want to know how to build speakers, read a book. It's a lot faster than asking question after question in a forum.

    My thoughts are, they can make or break a design, no matter how good the drivers and enclosure. So I went fully active ;)

    Ok so ive done a lot of looking for pre made xovers and have not seen much to what he had built. I have however come across quite a bit of information regarding parts and voltages and the other parameters these things list. Uf in capacitor talk is just that 100v one does the same as a 250v one so from what i have read as long as you use a quality one with in the voltage range you should be good. The core inductor coil is being used to filter the low pass if i read right what i do not understand is why he has them set up this way he is feeding one of the inductor coils from the other but is pulling one set of leads for the two upper mids before the second coil is introduced. Im not that quite familure with how this stuff works but im a quick learner. I know how to use a soldering iron and follow instruction.

    Your tweeter pick isn't bad, but the mids (even though they ARE 6"ers) have too high a Qts value (1.13 vs 0.55) and too high an Fs value (123Hz vs 55).
    I know you don't want/need DEEP bass from these, but they should probably be designed to at least make it down to 80Hz (the orig. design could). The ones you picked might do 120Hz? - but at a pretty high (undesirable?) "Q". They COULD be forced lower, but the box size would get out of hand.
    THAT XO (Curt's) would not work w/these woofers at all, probably.
