The Behringers are probably a good starting point. Otherwise have a search for the thread on the Hypex AS2.100 which is a two amplifier / crossover plate amp.

Rod Elliott of ESP has a circuit design and PCB if you don't mind building your own:

DEQX HDP-3 (although it is digital, it should be able to resolve any conflict it might have with your amps).

Be prepared to be wallet-raped though, RRP is US$3,995.00

Passlabs has a very good analog XO. Firstwatt will soon have a simplier one.

There are a couple threads here about building your own variation on the Firstwatt.

B1 Active Crossover
Two B1 and a crossover

I'm happy with my Marchand analog active crossover. I use the XM-9. No noise and clean sound at a reasonable price.

Default Ditto on the Marchand

I have been using a model XM-16-3-Deluxe for about eight years.
Truely superb, and Phil will stand behind his products 110%

Marchand certainly has good support. I sold my XM9 because as the system got better i could start to hear a veil that it was introducing into the system.

After that i started looking for less intrusive XOs. The LC PLLXO i find very interesting. Be nice to find a diy source for the inductors.

Both the mindsp and the hypex solutions are digital XO solutions and not analog, correct?

Marchand is the only high quality one I know of. Some great ones have been built. I wish I had the time and skill to do one myself.
