Default Two ways with a low x over

I would like to pair this woofer:
http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...number=264-806
for 300hz and up and this woofer:
http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...number=297-429
for below. I want the high woofer to be in a small sealed enclosure, or maybe open baffle, and for the woofer to be vented. So basically i want this to be more of an augmented fullrange. Also, these will be for low volume and I will probably tune higher rather than lower on the lower woofer for frequency response and low bloat.
If you have any experience please share!
Thanks

Hi Tade,

IMHO you can obtain a 82.5dB speaker ( anechoic- 4pi) only if you
cross a bit higher and mate with a more sensitive woofer like
hi-vi M5 to compensate the baffle-step.
Depending from how wide the baffle ,to say, 500Hz minimum.
An acoustic 12dB can be easy to achieve I suppose.
More interesting maybe, in the vision of "fullrange"audiophile
oriented, can be a true 6dB at 1Khz minimum.
A very interesting design can be a sort of fac-simile of the old
Sequerra Met sat also, but maybe I'm out of thread

Cheers,
Inertial

It so happens that I became the owner of

CSS FR125 and Vifa XT19 "ringradiator"

Like you I plan to use it for low listening level
Crossover point will be very high

It cost a little more but expect nothing but the very best - maybe even "a match made in heaven"

But it will take a while before I can report of sound
