Post Cross Over

Can one recommend me some books, threads, website where i can learn about cross overs and how to design them? I have HT Audio X over 3 Pro software and I want to learn more on how to design the x overs more specifically choosing the frequency range for the woofer, mid and tweeter.

I am moving this to Multiway. I think you'll get a better response here. Vance Dickason's Loudspeaker Cookbook is a good one to start. Also have a look around the web for basic stuff so you have an understanding how challenging it can get.

Choosing the frequency range is mostly about protecting the drivers, and keeping the distortion levels low. Controlling the off axis response is also an important consideration.

Download Passive Crossover Designer, an Excel apreadsheet. Try to model networks that others have published and see how varying components impacts frequency response.

Loudspeaker Design Software

Here is a tutorial on crossover design and the role that network phase response plays.

Crossover mods for the AR4x - The Classic Speaker Pages Discussion Forums

I would second the Loudspeaker Design Cookbook as useful.
