First I need to say I have been reading for a couple of months now and must say that this site and its members are awesome!

Okay,
What I currently have:

Alpine-9855
Kenwood kac-x522
Pioneer Premier (approx. 600wrms)
Polk Dxi6500 (fronts)
Treo TSX 15.44 (2.5 cu ft, ported, 35 hz f3)

Unfortunately the polks midbass's are blown. My fault. Oh well.

I would like to run active now that i need to replace my midrange speakers. I have been looking at madisound and parts express at mid drivers. I am trying to keep it under $50 per driver. I have seen a lot of different drivers but am really unsure as to what I should be looking for. I LP my sub at 80 hz and i dont know the range of the tweeter but i do know it is a 1" soft dome. I would like to reuse the tweeter if i can.

My question is this: What size of driver should i be looking for? I have looked at the 6.5" cone drivers on both sites, but i have also seen a lot of different sizes with similar range. Can anyone make recommendations? Additionally if it is possible for me to reuse my tweeter where should I cross it? As of now I do not have an amplifier to power the tweeters. I was going to use the kenwood on the mids. Any recommendations on amplifiers for the tweeters?
Thank you for your time!

These can be had for $102 with make offer Image Dynamics CX62 v.2

These are cheap and have good reviews Aurasound NS6-255-4A 6" Paper Cone Woofer 4 ohm

Also check here for some speaker tests Zaph|Audio

Should be able to cross them at 4KHz pretty easy without damage. But that's just a starting point, you can try lowering that point as you get more comfortable with the system and tuning. Might try an RTA setup to help you tune.

okay cool! thank you for the pointers! I have read the $100 rta setup how to and have been seriously considering it once i go active. Does having one really help getting everything tuned in easier/more accurately? It does seem like to would be very helpful. Again thanks!
