Designing a crossover
I was wondering when designing a crossover the passive network load for each driver .Do you leave the network load at 8ohms or for each driver do you use the RE that you have measured for each driver?
Also when doing the bandpass how do you determine the crossover points in relation to the woofer and tweeter crossover points ?
I am also wonder if anyone can point me to a tutorial on the right way to measure loudspeaker spl.
Maybe someone should do one so when someone new decideds to do it it is there in the wiki for it .

Re: Designing a crossover
Other than that there are a few good books on loudspeaker design, such as Testing Loudspeakers by Joseph D'Appolito.

some of this may be useful:

Getting it done:
Jay has a page on designing xovers using manufacturers specs without measuring:

Examples from the designs of others can be quite instructive:
Impedance varies with frequency, use impedance plots of your drivers and make crossover calculations using the actual impedance of the driver at the crossover frequency
