Anyone know where I can get a kit or something that can help me build my first crossover?

There are a lot of toutorials on the internet and a few design programs out there. Not too sure about a kit, but someone probably has one of those too.

this should help you quite a lot when actually putting the crossover together and figuring what parts need to be bought.

but you will have to figure out the theory on WHAT crossover points and slopes to use.

also, there is a PDF available to download at the bottom of that page, QUITE interesting to read, so i suggest you read all that good stuffs :)

What are you building these crossovers for? And how important is quality to you? And how much are you willing to spend?
