    I'd advise you to at least align the voice coils belonging to the two different horn drivers ( that's way better than a kick in the pants ).

    Can you elaborate?

    Parts start costing more the lower you go too.

    My advice is to not make this choice strictly an intellectual exercise ( ie; let your ears also guide you ).

    I listen to a lot of my favourite classical music through horns only ( using various compression drivers ) to assess the drivers ability in the lower octaves ( using various passive crossover topologies ).

    Classical music can sound surprisingly full range with a second order 750 hz crossover point ( & I can hear the grunge start to take hold when using a simple first order with smaller diaphragmed drivers ).

    There are too many variables to just pick a crossover frequency. The best crossover frequency will depend on the drivers being used along with the baffle they are on. IMO in a properly designed crossover there really no problematic area if the drivers are up to task.
