Default centre channel Please Help

Hi Im trying to built my first speaker and wish I would of find this site before buying the drivers.The woofers are 2x8" MG shielded frequency 40hz -8khz ,90 db SPL.The tweeter is an AUDAX awo25m1 with resonance frequency at FS 1000hz .The only parts for crossover that I was giving was 47mh ,7.5 uf for the woofer and 1.0 mh ,3.6 uf for the tweeter.I know its a two way secound order but was'nt told which one .I also was'nt told the crossover point ( I told him I wanted at least a 4000 to 5000 point).I also told him that I wanted to put a bi-amp terminal (bought from him)did'nt put it on the blue print how to connect it (only as one reg terminal on it)Now after seeing other crossovers in the 3rd and 4th order and resistors ,Lpad ,notch Im a bit confused what to do .Pat.P

All Im asking is should I stay with the spec or better it .Im really asking whats the best crossover for a center channel and what order did you try for the ones that built one.If the drivers are no good I'll change them. Pat.P

If you've got all the bits, build it to the spec. There's no particular crossover that's better or worse for centre speakers but they do have to be designed to suit the drivers.

Build away and you can fiddle later on if you feel like it.... never know, might learn something and have a bit of fun. Have a look at the values you've got and try and work out how they were determined.... some homework

Cheers
