I'm doing my first project, trying to keep things as cheap as possible. I need practice before going in for a more expensive and ambitious diy speaker project.

I'm making a 3way speaker system, recycling a pair of 2way loudspeakers of which I'm only reusing the boxes and the 15"woofers. Using three power amps and a digital crossover, I have determined that the whole system sounds best with crossover frequences of about 500-800Hz and 3000Hz. Using the formulas from DIYspeaker books I have come up with a set of values for the crossover design. Now, in order to get the best approximation I will have to put capacitors in paralell. Will I get any problems if I use np electrolitics in paralell with np polyester ones?:scratchhead:

I also have trouble getting inductances. :no: I can't cheaply buy .8-1mm enammelled copper wire to make them, nor ready made ones, except for some toroidal ones. Are these any good? Can I put more than one toroid in series to achieve a bigger value?
