Re: built in crossovers - why!
Biamping the front speakers means you need 4 channels. Lowpassing the mids, and hipassing the tweets for each channel. You'd also need an additional hipass for the mids to limit the bass to them. Some people do that, and make DIY components. You get a lot of control this way.
