    What would you think of buying a budget active crossover and ditching the passives then?

    either get new crossovers of the ones you had, or go active... cant just swap out crossovers... speakers and tweets need specific xover points or they may sound like crap (from what i understand, im just gettin into comp's and going active)

    Nope, it's a 3way crossover, meaning it'll handle sub stage, midbass+midrange, and highs, so only 1 is needed.

    For the power, you just wire it up like you would an amp.

    For signal, it goes HU -> Active XO -> Amplifier(s).

    Yes, RCA's and yes, only one for your subs and front components.

    Here's the owner's manual which will divulge some info about how active works.

    Well that's going to be a severe challenge. Crystal went out of business a few weeks back and as far as I know their operations have been completely shut down.
