Ok, I have 2 yr old EDi components, and they ****... don't like them, no midbass..sooo I'm getting two of these RNX's from here:

And two neo tweets from here:

But how the heck do I cross these over and then put them on a 4-channel amp if the mids are 8 ohm and the tweets 4? Ugh..

Good choice of speakers.

Easier to crossover if you go active. Get an amp at least 100x4@4 (risky though since tweeters are 90w rms) woofers would see ~50w but I belive you can wire it up to 4 ohms in parallel. Anyways start with the recommend xover range mids around 65hz and 2khz at 12db octave and tweets at 2.5khz at 12db octave, then adjust from there.

Ok, well due to price and impedance issues, what do you guys think about Mach5 MLI-65's? Read some reviews with them and the Neo's together, sounded like they could compete with the L18's
