crossovers basically split the signal from the HU/amp into different frequencies, the high ones for the tweeter and the lower ones for the speaker, i think thats what they do, correct me if im wrong

The steeper the slope the less strain on the drivers. Midrange can be crossed higher or tweeter can be crossed lower than on shallower slope. Overall you get a cleaner sound.

There's also an effect in phase shift in different slopes. For example, 6db/oct slope will have a 90 degrees shift, 12db/oct 180 shift. This phase shift will affect the absolute phase.

So I did a tone test and found that the tweeters start making sound at about 1500hz which would put the crossover several thousand hertz above...
