Default Testing drivers & crossover pics

I'm mid-way through a speaker project and have a couple of questions;

The drivers have arrived but the crossover components haven't yet. Can I install the drivers and test them with the amp or is this a stupid idea?

Does anyone have construction pics of their Audax HT kits? I'm especially looking for crossover pics, cascaded caps would be good.

I forgot the last question

Cheers,
Matt

For the bass / mids (assuming 2 way) OK, for the tweeters very stupid

You've lost me on the cascaded capacitors reference.

checkout this link (I think) :

Excellent, you've just saved my tweeters!
It's a shame no-one has pictures of construction.

Cascading caps; I read that cascading capacitors in certain crossovers is beneficial to the sound, what I did not find out however is the criteria (i.e., what types of crossovers benefit and by how much). Also I did not find out how to cascade them in relation to other components to avoid interaction.
