    @OpulentOne – Well, you have what you need. Hook it up to each driver separately and run the DATS for impedance for each driver. Export it. Go to REW. Set up your microphone. Do your frequency sweeps separately for each driver. All of this while in the enclosure. You now should have your measurements. You then go into XSim and setup the layout. You then select driver 1 and right click and select tune. Import the FRD Response File and ZMA Impedance file for the speaker. input any other information you need to on that screen (sensitivity, etc.). Repeat with the next driver.

    Don’t know if that is what you are looking for. More of a general “dive in, you got this” type response. And then, start playing.

    If you are unsure what to do next, if you know if you want a second or fourth order crossover, look up pictures on google on how they are laid out. Do not copy values, just their layouts. Then, start toying with the values. If you need to volume level, add a resistor before the sequence. Then, share your results. From there, more specific answers can flow, helping with impedance results, if phase issues wind up popping up, etc. And at that point, I’d recommend listening to someone more advanced than me at crossover design.

    But that should get you up and running and with an idea of what you are looking at for components to start.
