I was looking into getting some Scanspeak revelators but I don't know how I'm going to incorporate a crossover with it. Do I make my own? Someone help me!

If doing a home brewed (DIY) comp set, I'd definitely advise going active. psycho72 had a post a few days back in which I explained why.

Who makes some good active x-overs? I'm considering going the DIY route as well, lot of good stuff out there.

edit: something like this?http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=14931&item=5743131939&rd=1 Sorry I dont know too much about x-overs and such, but hey gotta start from somewhere.

If you are doing a 2-way frontstage w/ sub, then you need something more like this; http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=79840&item=5743071046&rd=1

That's just an example. It's a good crossover though. Linear power and Tru Technology have some aswell. Also, try to look for one that has variable slopes. Something like a Coustic Design Reference DX-28 is awesome and has variable slopes, though they are "old school" and may be hard to find.
