    Default Crossover help

    I'm building a pair of home speakers with 4 Polk MM2124 subs and 2 pairs of Polk MM6 components that came from my old car which was total from hail damage. Each speaker will have 2 subs, 2 mids, and 2 tweeters, all 4 ohms ran in series to produce an 8 ohm load. What kind of crossover should I use to split the signal to my subs from the components? The MM6's came with crossovers so I think I just need a 2 way crossover at 80 htz. My concern is that I may need something that can adjust the power delivered to the subs or mids in case the volume levels don't match up. Any ideas?

    Welcome.

    You may want to consider an active crossover like the Paradigm X-30 Crossover / Controller. If you have a home theatre receiver, it should also handle that. A passive crossover would probably require quite a big inductor and that can add up quickly.

    If you use a plate amp for your subs, they may also come with speaker level crossovers.

    good luck

    Sell all that car audio stuff and buy drivers designed for home use. You'll have a rough time dialing in car speakers to sound right in the home environment, due to them being designed for pretty much an infinite baffle.

    I'd also build a design that someone has really researched and put through the ringer. There are a lot of unbelievable designs in the "sticky" threads on this board. Most of these designs will outperform speakers costing 5-10x their cost to build:
