Hi Sinister,

I'm afraid it's a little too complex to just give you answers like that.

To up the wattage, you up the amplifier. Not something easy to do for a beginner.

Crossovers are designed for the specific drivers. It will already have some form of crossover or you would have blown the tweeters. What is is you want to do with a crossover?

Ohms are a unit of impedance and there isn't a best or they would all be the same.
