hey guys, is there some amplifier with built-in xovers for speakers not subs.?
im wanting to do 2enclosures each consist of:

-----------------------------------

Tweeter: 1 TB neodymium 1" http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/pshowdetl.cfm?&DID=7&Partnumber=264-834&scqty=2

Mid-Range: 1 TB W5-704S 5.25" http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/pshowdetl.cfm?&DID=7&Partnumber=264-850&scqty=2

Mid-Woofers: 2 AA poly mid 6.5" http://ascendantaudio.com/poly_6.5_page.html

---------------------------------

BUT, i dont know how do u guys cross them home audio speakers? im seeing amplifiers but with no crossover...
ive been thinkin ,

mid-woofer plays from ~80hz to ~1khz
mid-range plays from ~1khz to ~4khz
tweeter plays from ~4khz to ~20khz

----
also, the mid-range is 8hom, while the others are 4ohm.. does that affect something with the amplifier?
also, wut amplifier do u suggest me to get? something really the best for the buck! im lookin' at around 250rms each enclosures... somethin' that I could connect to my sound card's computer!

im a n00b in home audio, so plz help me out, thx alot

Hey man i jus made a post about this yesterday, i want to use those 6.5" AA's and the dayton tweeters, with a single 8" assasin, and parts express do sell like the 2-3way crossovers for those speakers, then they have the ones for the subwoofers.

Hey do u know of any HT recivers which was recommended to me to buy, have the capability of playing like burnt movies, because my dvd player now doesnt come in clear, but the cheapest dvd player in my house which was like 20 bucks when we bought it brand new plays anything.


I might consider the speakers u suggested also have u played with them before

this HT looks decent, 100 watts per channel will be nice

no i havent!! but i have an Arsenal from AA and like it ALot in my car, so I kinda love AA's product, haha, as for the others.. the tweeter seems veryy flat in the responce graph from 4khz till the end, the mid-range looks way to good:D haha,

as for the receiver, i really dont know, i was thinkin buying this thing,

for my computer, everyone say the SQ is amazing, it also converts all ur mp3 into better SQ and features are very nice, 7.1 wut lot of connection with the I/O , but I dont know if I could do wuts in my head with this thing...

so what is needed to hook my dell flat panel tv up to a computer, i know there is something special i need in my computer, not sure whats needed though. So when i get the tv hooked up to the computer i can simply hook the tv up to the reciver then i should be able to get the sound to go through the reciever im guessing

Why?

They **** at customer service.
They have a talent for screwing up orders.
They have not shipped me items, been waiting for 2 years.
They took 6 months to send parts for a computer, when almost the exact same thing was ordered the same day, and received in one week.
They screw you over.
