- Those and Pioneer Rev and MTX TXC series will be the best values from your list.

Whichever sounds best. Seriously. Every install is different, and every listener is different. That's why they provide an adjustment, because no one setting is best for all installs, and all listeners.

That being said, as a general rule of thumb, if the tweeters are mounted significantly closer to your head than the woofers are, then set the level to -3db. Set to 0db if you have them mounted right next to the woofers.

You can't go by the numbers, some manufacturer's are have different interpretations. Just switch it to whatever position sounds best. I would leave the crossovers out for a while until you get to know the settings. After you are sure you have them set right, then permanently install them.
