Is this for car or for home? Can you give more details on the crossover?

A circuit diagram would be useful.

If its higher power in then capacitors might need to be a higher voltage.
You might have to rewind inductors with heavier gauge wire.

Those are rather lightweight XO's I would consider starting from scratch either passive or better, active perhaps even a fixed PLLXO. (passive line level crossover)

Ok,
1. would you like to have it as caps and coils - something you hide in the cabinet?
2. Would you like to have it electronic so that you can adjust the XO frequency?
3. Do you know the frequency you want to XO it at?
4. Do you have another amplifier that you can run the woofer with?
5. Have you considered a plate amp?
