A PC solution might be tougher to implement, it's probably easier and simpler to go with a "drop in" solution like a MiniDSP or as Cal suggested, one of the Behringer units like this one:

Behringer DCX2496 Ultradrive Pro Digital Crossover 248-669

I did try the midrange with Alpair 12 which is 8", but the one with the 12" fullrange is the latest. Sound is full, rich and more neutral to my ears.

Albert
what is that 12" - looks like you enabled an Audio Nirvana ? (AlNiCo?)

A single home theater type 7 channel amplifier would probably work well too.

Hm, I'd probably go with a run of the mill class A/B. If you have an existing power amplifier, you could just add a 5 channel perhaps, an Adcom or Emotiva or something like that.

Yeah, you'd have to have cables, I'd probably get or make rca -> xlr cables or get adapters for the back of the Benringer.

I guess this would be the design

Classe ssp-300 -> RCA->XLR -> Behringer -> DIY open baffle 3 ways stereo speakers...

i guess there i can configure XO and this should work right?

You forgot the multichannel amp between the Behringer and the speakers.

Yes a min of 6 channel amp

Am i right to assume this gives me versatility to have more DIY speaker later and i can use Behringer to test the speaker/ drivers...

so this solution provides me more versatility if tomorrow i want to change my drivers i just reconfigure the Behringer and according to my taste change the XO..
