Question A few questions about a 2-way system

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.

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
sometimes we know very little, and sometimes we know too much

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
