    @Rskmd don’t be hard on yourself. This is where we all come to learn. And learning is important, as you stated, no everyone has an electrical engineering degree. Let me just point out a few things that have me concerned. Currently your graph has the shape of a hill on the horizon. It goes down on both ends and kind of humps in the middle. This is typically not a response most people are shooting for. Some things to try, you could increase your inductor on the woofer to help straighten it out more, add an l-pad to the mid range to help compensate it down more. The tweeter, is a hard one, since it already has a hard shape to work with. But going third order might help you straighten in out some on the high end. Overall, I would try to targe that blue line closer to 80 dB.

    Having said all that, you are spot on on your assessment, the knee is adding too much to the bass region.

    Where the frequencies crossover you should be about 6db down from the combined (blue) response directly above it (same frequency). If you are, you should be in phase.

    Honestly, it is a good first attempt. I hope this helps.
