Default F2,J2,F3,F5 amps and driver layout

Here is a small /simple question - one about taste.

I'd be interested to hear what amps configuration some of you would think of. Here is the matter : four amps, F2, J2, F3, F5

A four way loudspeaker (yes i know, best would be to have one unique driver, simple set up and elegant design as the FW are), crossover frequency
dc - 630hz low
630hz - 1250hz low medium
1250hz - 6300hz high med
6300hz - tweeter

which amps would you assign to what frequency ? Just matter of curiosity

The F5 gets the bottom end with most woofer systems.
Maybe also the top, depending on the tweeter and your taste.

Default Bottom end

That is what I'm trying to decide :
- Use the F5 for woofer, with more damping
- use the F2 for high, but the F5 with its wide high range has a argument. I only notice the F2 has less noise than the F5 (20uV vs 60uV) and with tweeter with more than 100db spl and not such a big listening room... But I need to listen more, especially with cords instruments with lots of harmonic... let's see, or rather let's hear....

I'll probably settle for the J2 in the low medium and the F3 in the high medium

thanks anyway - for your comments and your amps
