maybe its a typo or maybe im wrong on this but doesnt 500 hz high pass seem a little high on the woofer?

I would steer clear of anything that manufacturer has...

and yes the woofer is crossed at 500hz...WAY too high (no midbass at all) and the fact that they have 350 watt tweeters just confirms that theyre full of it

Sounds like a good Xover point for a 3way setup :D

I didn't see any slopes listed, unless I missed them...

Well i figured out something, i was just messing around with it and somehow i ended up pressing the two sides together on the crossover. When you press in on the two sides everything works perfectly, the speakers sound awesome. But when you let go it goes back to the turn up the volume amp goes off, loss of alot of output, etc. So i ghettod it out and right now i got duct tape goin around it to help pull the two sides together, plays great, looks like ****. I will probably pick up those MB's just for style, unless i can fix these somehow. But that is freakin weird.
