After much thought, I could not resist ... I just bought the drivers for these project. Now I will need your help, since I am a complete noob.
What components should I buy now for the crossover?
According to Leonidas: 1 - 2.2uf capacitor + 1 - 2.2ohm Resistor
According to Dzius: 1 1.8uf capacitor1+ 1mH inductor +1 0,1 mH inductor + 1 2ohm resistor.
Could you give some tips?

My crossover is at FE166En+FT17H "Concerti clone" (lots of pics!!)
I tried many other options but this one is best for me. Rigth now I use even more bass boost using 3ohm resistor paralell to 1mH coil. But frankly speaking first built it in MDF or even better in plywood before thinking about cross over. It take time every separate element glued need time for glue hardening and "setlle down". I've got a lot of experience with wood and recomend 4 hour time for glue hardening before glueing the next element over previous one. So it takes a lot of time. Additionally you need carpenter clamps to fix elements at position and proper glueing. Greater number of clamps will speed up work . All in all it's not an easy project. From this point of view FH3 is much better. But you have bought drivers so good luck !!!

Thanks Dzius. You are absolutely right. I think i was led by emotion when purchasing the drivers. I'll prepare the box first.

I have built L'SIT amp which uses load line mechanizm to lower distortion. Concerti have appeard to play very nice with it but in a tiny bit supernatural way.
So decided to make map live easier and improve crossover by using zobel network and turn speakers into more or less constant impedance. After several attempts and listenig test final version is as follow:

Rigth now impedance plot is more leveled:

Is there anybody who listened to Concerti clone and Victor ( Woden Design) as well? My question is this: is it worth it upgrading from Concerti to Victor at all?

Probably not on the first, and YMMV on the latter (let nobody say I use this forum to promote my own designs) since it depends on the rest of your system, inc. the room, and personal preference. What can be said entirely objectively is that

a/ Victor is larger

b/ It's impedance matched down to a much lower frequency due to that extra size, and the fact that it's intended to be boundary loaded.

c/ More generally, the behaviour of the two boxes, in-room power-responses through the LF region etc. are significantly different.
