Default Real PC Simulation of Crossover?

Does anyone know of any inexpensive or freeware that simulates active crossovers on "real" speakers?

My thought is to record samples into a .wav or even .mp3 file then process via software into a High Pass and Low Pass. Each section crossover characteristics can be processed with variations in crossover frequency, slope, q, baffle step compensation etc.

These sections are then recombined and played back through via the soundcard into the actual speakers inside the room. This way, it is a simple process to experiment to home in on the optimal parameters.

Using multi channel sound cards, even multi way simulation is possible.

Exactly what kx-project is about.
There have been many people reporting good results with it.
I still have to change my soundcard....

Instant Crossover Prototyping

Can't beat dragging sliders and turning knobs to adjust while the music's playing!

If you wanna try a really powerfull equalizer, check this one

http://www.winamp.com/plugins/details.php?id=133877

Its a 128 band ( ! ) eq with curve drawing capability and five memories. I equalized my cheap Creative cambridge soundworks pc speakers using this eq and an RTA and the sound improvment was amasing.
