Is this for a home audio system?

Oh I getya! The Pyle PA 8 ohm speakers had me wondering. Did you get the speakers thru Walmart.com? They're really cheap! I actually use the Pyles sometimes for replacement home speakers.

had them from a long while back on parts express and kmart online.. had them sat around forever so i'm just going to try and use them since it'd not be worth trying to sell them for as little as people can get them now. They are actually very nice in person compared to what they look like online. Least to me.

any advice on crossing them over points or tweet suggestions?

ppa-6 Frequency Response: 60-7,000 Hz
ppa-8 Frequency Response: 55-6,000 Hz

I think that is what they were.. from memory lol

8's should go up to around the 500 range maybe a little more so your 6's are plenty safe and the 6's from there to about 5000 should be good depending on the tweets... Tweeter choice Id look into these VVVV if it was me... This is about howd Id set mine up if it was me but its very dependent on install as well..

They make a hard dome as well...

yessir, and tweets in a pillars is current idea. I know the mounting depth is pretty large ( imo ) on the 8s with like 3.7 inches or something.. but yes, this was general idea

How many channels of amplification do you have?at least six to go active..
Or are you going to run passives? Are you going to run a sub?

was picking up a sundown 200.4 to properly power the 8 ohm ppa8 and ppa6s, still deciding amp for tweets. sub(s) currently are 4 12" hifonics hifis until I buy 4 12" newer type Rs.

setting it will be based on what mids and tweeters you are running and yes you will need a min of 6 ch 2 high / 2 mid/ and 2 low
but yes I'll help where I can

PMs are full. :(

midbass: pyle ppa-8 8 ohm x 4
mids: pyle ppa-6 8 ohm x 6
Tweets: Vifa XT25SC90-04 Ring Radiator Tweeter 4 ohm x 6


now for the 6 channels, how would I do it with the amps? would I need three 2 channel amps or could i use a sundown 200.4 and another setup. Never used a crossover like you suggested before so.. this is new to me.
