Default 2 way Monitor DIY Help

Hello all powerful and knowing DIY'ers
I will open debate on my next project
Under $500 for drivers and crossovers...I hope WELL under!

I currently have a pair of Parts Express .25 speaker cabinets and I'm looking for a kit or driver combo to fill them up.
They are currently being used with (and don't laugh) some Infinity Reference car audio separates. I said don't laugh! If your not familiar, the PE has a replaceable front baffle so I had the car speakers and needed some tunes.
What I'm looking for is a DIY that has been proven to sound nice and not cost an arm and a leg..and one that the crossover is both easy to solder and easy to order as I have no Idea when it come to Crossovers. Or if anyone could make it from designs that would be great too.

Speakers I've come to like to give you an idea are
B&W Nautilus
Energy Veritas
They will be used in a Home Theater setting but I would say 70% music played, they do not have to be efficient, I will have a dedicated amp on them.
They will be used with a sub so I'm not concerned with the extreme low end.
Type of music I listen to is too wide to list...but from Hard Industrial (Ministry, NiN, Marlyn Manson) to Jazz and female vocals.
I'm aware of Parts Express and Midisound but there are just sooo many choices..I would love some input.
