Default looking to start a computer crossover

I'm looking to build a computer crossover and I thought a good way to start was with the kx drivers and an audigy card supported by the drivers. Was looking for feedback for those that have used these drivers and what card to look at. What I'd really like to do is a 5.1 system all actively crossed, but then I would need 2 cards. Can someone help explain to me how it would be possible to route the signal to 2 sound cards for a total of 11 channels. thanks

16ch ADAT PCI card. But why 11 channels? Even SDDS is only 8 channels.

11 channels is for 5 2-way speakers actively crossed, and the 11th is for the sub. Can you be more specific about the 16 channel adat pci card, is one of these expensive, I have a rather tight budget considering what I want to do and all.

ADAT, aka Lightpipe, is just another form of audio I/O. 8 channels on a single TOSLink cable. The cards usually support ASIO, a low latency multichannel audio transfer protocol,the better ones in hardware, and the more advanced ones support SMUX allowing sample rates up to 192K. Price might be a problem though, good multichannel cards tend to be expensive and you'll have to build or buy an ADAT capable multichannel dac.
