Question A few questions about a 2-way system

Hi,
I am going to build a 2-way system using the HiVi M6N as a woofer crossed over to a HiVi B3N at a frequency between 1000-2000hz, not sure were the best place to crossover would be. Would these two driver be a good sounding 2-way speaker or would it fail massively lol. I would be using the filter for B3N that zalph made for the fullrange speaker (That is what i originally bought the driver for). Would i need BSC for the Woofer? And is the M6N the best woofer to go for out M5N or the M6N.
Thanks

That B3N is so low in sensitivity that I do not believe its worth the trouble
Surely you can find a much better design

Anyway, the concept might work though
The use of a small fullrange makes a bigger woofer possible
But drivers you have chosen seem to be all wrong, sorry
They dont give you the obvious advantage of such design
