    Its hard to determine without knowing specs of the drivers...frequency response graphs and the tweeter's FS are good indications to give you a solid foundation...it is also VERY dependent on the install...

    Usually if I don't have these things then I start with around 3.5khz for the tweeter and woofer then go from there...

    Plus a ton more I never added, lol. If you are not on the list and you had a pleasant transaction with me, PM me!!!

    that doesn't mean much. the mids will not cleanly play up to 20k. no way.

    and just because the tweeters response is 1.4k-24 doesn't mean they will play cleanly down to 1.4k either. what is the fs of the tweeter?

    can you tell us the speakers you have or are planning to get?

    well i would choose different tweeters. they don't publish the FS spec so you have nothing to really go off of. well i guess you could guess....

    why did you choose those tweeters?

    most 6.5" mids should be good up to at least 2k maybe as high as 4-5k on certain ones. personally, i'd rather not have mids play that many octaves though.
