I'm guessing it's the 7" aluminum midbass driver.
The tweeter might not match up to well as the woofer is really a good sounding driver;

Read Krutke's tweeter mismash to get a good idea on low cost, high quality tweeters;

You'll probably have to go to Madisound to get them tweeters & they also have really good prices on crossovers;

I had that very driver coupled with the Peerless 811435: http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/pshow...=277-402&DID=7

Simple 12db passive xo's, normal 80hz high pass from the amp and it sounded ok IMO.

The alum 5.25 though needs some type of enclosure behind it, not meant for indoor ib.

Sounds like you've got all the functionality for filtering, just a matter of adjusting to taste. Respectable drivers don't hurt either. Have fun.
