    Awhile ago I picked up some old JL passive crossovers and I am looking to make some bookshelves with them. If I remember correctly they are crossed at 5khz with a 6db slope.

    Any suggestions on drivers to mate with these?

    I was thinking the Adire Koda. Wouldnt want to spend more than they cost.

    Forgot to mention that they were 4ohm crossovers.

    This is similar to saying you have 4 tires and want to build a car for them.

    Crossover's are designed after the drivers are chosen, not the other way around.

    I bought some a/d/s crossovers to play with. The nice thing about them is that they don't have any built in eq'ing to the specific drivers, just a plain 2600hz xover with a -3db, 0db, +3db selector on the tweeter. I've just been trying misc. drivers that I find good deals on and adusting them actively. SWMBO is starting to complain about all the speakers though. I just hope she never opens the filing cabinet.
