Woofer in 3-way system. I have looked a lot of 3-ways, but I am not sure what would be good F3 for woofer. The woofer I am gonna use is Dayton RS225

Fs 29Hz, but should I go so low?! Have any clue. Does this sound already to boomy. What F3 you suggest for these drivers.
Most 3-ways are around 30-45Hz. How I should decide what F3 to choose.

Music I am listening is more pop, 80-90 and also even I like to listen piano (classic).

If you want to use your speakers whithout a (min. rek. 2pcs.) sub, you should at least go for flat down to about 30Hz in room, witch these drivers should be able to achieve (albeit with low sensitivity).

I am not gonna use Sub.
Then could you answer, why some really good speakers have done F3 45Hz?!Even when woofer are able to go 30 at least.

Perhaps to minimize group delay? Or the port simply became too long? Engineers trading performance for aestethics (Smaller cabinet.)? Perhaps the F-3dB@45Hz is in free space? In a room, you get some help in the lowest frequencies.
