    I don't think they'll take the power, they're rated at like 60 or something like that. And I've been looking and the passive sets I've been finding are rated like 130 so I don't know that the tweet and woofer will each take 90.

    Most passive tweets take about 75

    mids should handle it...use a ceramic resistor to attenuate the tweeters by about 3db and you should be fine or turn the gain down on the tweets....

    I have DDT tweet crossovers that will drop my curve 3db's if that's what you mean..?

    you can just adjust your gain level down by about 25% on the amp...but the crossovers have the built in resistors that cut the sound by 3dbs...but the other componets in the crossover will reduce your SQ by trying to run active....you'd basically be bi amping

    well it's not like a passive crossover, it's something I put inline between the tweet and crossover so I can control the slope a little more, from my understanding that's all it does.
