Default Please help me decide drivers for my MTM, I am thinking SEAS Prestige line

I am working on putting together a set of fronts, this is what i got in mind.

A MTM design with 2 6.5 Woofers by SEAS Prestige line and a dome tweeter also by SEAS Prestige line. I choose SEAS because my dad has there Excel line and really like them a lot. I might be able to get a couple SEAS millenium tweeters off him for cheap for this build. Also I want to do a Active digital crossover for them, I have been recommended a Behringer DCX2496.

A couple questions I have

-Digital crossover vs Passive crossover, advantages and disadvantages

-What 6.5 Woofer and Tweeter made by SEAS Prestige line would mesh together well and sound good in a MTM.

Pros:
-flexibility, great for prototyping different filters
-possible to use filters not available in passive/analog world (steep slope, arbitrary phase response)

Cons:
-may be expensive up front
-may need to do AD conversion
-multichannel volume control may be expensive

Whichever way you go, more important are a good set measurements (incl. several from off-axis angles) from your drivers in your box and tailoring the crossover based on them.

Default Digital crossovers

If you're intereted in digital cross-overs you ought to check these guys out: http://groundsound.com/index.html

They also make amplifier kits!

However being Danish they're kind of pricey, however I do believe they make excellent products.
