Re: Finishing up my install- question about setting up my Boston Pro60s active?
Finding a x-over to do this is very easy to come by. Here is a small list off the top of my head below. Active is not that hard, why are you making it sound like its this super hard thing to accomplish. Its all about doing a little research before you start the process. Now building passives from scratch you better know what the hell you are doing.

There are a ton of amps out there that have built in x-over's that are flexible enough to run active also.
This list could be much much longer if I started during research rather then just of the top of my head.
I am not saying one is better than the other we all have our own preference on that one.
I agree 100% that your install is the biggest part. If you do a crap install no matter how much processing power or passive set you have you more than likely will not be able to achieve the desired results.IMO
You adjust the power using your gains do not be overly concerned about having x power on tap. This only holds true with having more power than needed, if you are trying to run the mids with a 5w power amp then you may have some issues. I hope that made sense. Just make sure you set the gains properly and you will be ok.
On setting your amp gains check DejaWiz setting amp gains tutorial out. Its in his sig just click it.
