Default Crossover DCR question

On a 2nd order crossover..or any order larger than 1st, Should the woofer dcr + the woofer inductor dcr added together equal the HF driver dcr + the HF inductor dcr added together?

no, woofer and tweeter crossover are separate networks, and need to be calculated separately
