    No, because most crossovers (above a certain price range) are purpose designed and configured for specific drivers. Factors such as resonant impedance peak, inductive rise, response shaping, and acoustic and electrical slopes all affect the performance. Sure you can use them, but it may not provide optimal results. It might even damage your drivers.
