Default 3way with RS225, WR125, LPG26nafm? Xover?

I'm highly considereing this 3way combination for use as a tower configuration.

So far i already own the LPG26nafm's, the RS225's will be in soon (PE had a sale on the 8ohm versions, couldn't pass that up at all), and i'm really considering the midrange to be played with the WR125 from CSS.

IS this a viable and good overal setup?

I have no idea at all how to design and build a xover, so its my main concern next to the drivers in question being high enough resolution and quality to be used that could compair to setups worth thousands of dollars.

As far as xover points, i'd like to keep the midrange to 1 specific driver, and keep the xover points out of the vocal range, so i'm guessing that a midbass xover point of around 150-200hz would be ideal, midrange up to around 6-8k, and the LPG metal domes from 8k on up.

Could someone help me possibly with the design of my xovers, to give me the best sound possible, (I know majority of the cost will be the xover)

Would also like opinions on chosen drivers, again the Daytons are on there way, (I couldn't pass up the sale), and i already own the LPG26nafm's. So last choices are midrange, xover design, and woofer alignment.

Again thanks for reading, and the help.

Check out the FRD website for a lesson on using free tools for speaker / crossover design.


Here is another design resource:


Here are some projects online that use the RS225 Woofer.



General Rules of thumb:

Keep the crossover or the midrange/Tweeter 2-3 octaves above the drivers Fs point.

Try to keep the crossover between the woofer/mid and mid/tweeter 3 octaves apart.

Good Luck!
