You really need to jump into the XSim thread over at DIYaudio.com to do this right.

There you will learn that measurements of your actual speakers are a necessary first step.

Online calculators are of academic value only.

Good luck.

You did not say what amp you have.
Why not get another one, you don't need a very powerful one for the mids/tops.(I use a Dynaco 80)
Then use an active crossover between the woofers and the mid/tops, they are inexpensive.
I am so happy that I did it that way.
Plus you will only need a simple XO for the horn that way.

Why don't you just buy a active crossover...then you can just dial in your crossover with measurements from REW?
