But I need to know the range of values of the caps normally used in crossover, like 100uf 50V mono or polarised etc.

a 2 uF cap into a nominal 8 ohms gives an XO of 10kHz. Making it 2x as big moves the XO to 5 kHz, halving it moves it to 20k.
If you have a 4 ohm T, double the cap value, if a 16 ohm T halve them.
Typically the higher the voltage the better the cap sounds, but 50V is probably a reasonable rating for most situations (althou i have seen many a 5V cap on vintage stuff)
