Default Want to buy 2 way electronic xover for home audio

I'm new to bi-amping with home audio so I don't know which brands are best vs best bang for the buck vs crap. I know there are several brands I've seen on ebay that I recognize but several of the crossovers I see do way more than I need. I just need a basic 2 way crossover in the 12db slope range around 200Hz to maybe 800Hz to dial in what I want to do. I've done several car installs with active crossovers so I'm not totally green. Even if you don't have anything for sale a jab in the right direction is appreciated

BTW I know I'm kinda new on here but if there's any question of my trading rep you can search CACO, RC Groups or DIYMA for ghostmechanic or ebay for fcastevecars & those are me. Not sure why I didn't just use ghostmechanic on here... oh yeah there weren't enough spaces & I couldn't figure out a way for to not look stupid

Wrong forum (this is the "for sale" area), but check out Marchand Electronics in Rochester, NY.

Oops I apologize guys. What a noob mistake lol.

None the less thanks for the advice. I'll do some looking at your suggestions.

Rane MX22
Discontinued Products
Scroll down to the listing on that page and look it over.

For just starting out .. you could do a lot worse. If you need Time Delay check out their AC22. See these both on ebay quite often ... $50 or less will get you an MX22.

I've been bi and tri amping for years and have had all the mentioned active crossover then some. I now swear by the MiniDSP.

if you can justify the complexity and expense, fully software based XO solutions like allocator have my vote because these will not only do frequency based, but phase and full convolver based room and driver distortion correction. you need a decent modern pc, multichannel soundcard or dac and an amp channel per driver
