hahaha that was funny

Are you saying that I can buy a pre made crossover and make modifications to it?

Also I can't do 22" in width because on the left side it would barely fit but then there would not be any space for my JBLs on their stands (The left one would be uneven with the right one) And also with the tight fit they would be closer to the wall so they would run into the ceiling that is slanted (Ill attach a visual)

Ok without jReave I am not going to be able to finish an entire project. Maybe I can go with the Idea of making some powerful subwoofers and have the JBLs as the mid and highs. I can have the JBLs in the corners of the room with these. I would go with the same 2 woofer design with wiring on the bottom. Is a crossover necessary for subwoofers?

I think I can use this Dayton Audio RSS315HO-4 12" Reference HO Subwoofer 4 Ohm

Ok I know that no crossover is necessary, I also think I will go with the DSA315 since the RSS315s were having bad frequency responses and the enclosure volume was not logical.
I am not sure how to connect the subwoofer plate amp to 2 woofers though...

He is suggesting an active + passive hybrid. I gave an example layout for how you'd set one up (post 180).

The mid-to-high crossover is relatively cheap & easy one to make passively, because the parts are smaller. That's why you'd do low actively, high passively.

Any reasonable passive XO will be OK, as long as you have some form of flexible eq (miniDSP OR multi band eq board OR software), because you can use that to flatten an imperfect response.

Why use stands? I'd just build the woofer box to whatever height is needed, so that when the top box is plonked on it, the tweeter is at ~ear level.

(I already got stands and I think it looks better)

Without help from jReave, I won't be able to build the full project. I have a new thread for a clean start, I plan on just building the woofer part and having them go along with the JBLs like someone said earlier.
