Plug the capacitor value into a 2nd order crossover calc and see what freq you come up with.

Unless you are using the Quart speakers they were designed for I would say "No."
Unless you are using the Quart speakers they were designed for I would say "No."OK, thanks. I should probably just bite the bullet and go active anyway. I was just trying to see if I could make my 2 channel amp work for my frontstage, but it looks like I'll soon be in the market for a 4 channel amp.

You'd be better off building a "custom" passive network than just using one from another set. Doing might be cheaper than going with an active setup, but it's hard to tell. You might hit on a good freq that works right off the bat. You also might have to switch out components a bunch of times and still not get it sounding right. Going with an active setup using a continuously variable crossover with independant controls for high/low left and right freqs is the surest way to get it just right. This assumes that you take the time to tune it up.
