    Hello, I am new hear. Been heavily into Car Audio DIY for years and want to get into HT. I have a few high quality drivers that I got for the car but turned out to be cellulose so I want to use them for HT. Also want to build a center channel. Can anyone point me to a crossover network for a center channel. I see that most have two midbass and one tweeter and midrange, not sure what that over would look like.

    Hey no problem.
    But no one uses generic crossovers for HT do they?
    As soon as you post frequency response plots of all the drivers measured in industry standard baffles, we'll sit right down and whip up a custom XO design for ya.

    No that isn't what I am looking for. I just would like to know what network is used on a center channel? How do you hook up 2 woofers with only one midrange and tweeter?

    Your talking about a 3 way center channel, so you will need a crossover design program. You can pick one up from www.partsexpress.com or go with LspCAD which does box modeling as well. I would recommend a 2nd order Linkwitz Riley type. You can make a three way but I like do make a bunch of one ways and play around with wiring them together to get the right impedance load. 6Ohms works pretty well with most amps. Try these links.

    The XO for the center you describe is basicially no different than any TMWW 3-way configuration tower speaker. There might be minor changes in the baffle step compensation due to the driver placement
