I'm still using the pair of Wharfedale RS/12/DD (DD for Double Diaphragm) that I bought 50 years ago in 1969.

They've occupied a variety of enclosures since that time and, of course, thrive on valve amplification.

If you can bi-amp with either basic LR2/LR4 slopes, or with software/hardware DSP, a modest complexity passive component crossover is possible. -example-

If you can tri-amp with software/hardware DSP the (no passive parts) crossover can be accurate for time and room effects.

I have read that the drivers in a commercial which costs $1000 at the dealer cost the manufacturer about $50. Go figure...
