A lot of people here run active crossovers. The downside do that is you need an amp channel for each component (tweeter, mid, woofer each needs a channel, it adds up quickly).

You could build your own crossovers, but a lot of what you're really needing to adjust is the xover points themselves, and so to adjust that you have to adjust the value of the components in the xover... basically a lot of part swapping.

In your case, you could try running the woofers active with the mids and tweets having some passive component to them. Or just source a small amp for your tweets.

Build is great though, neat car too. We don't get those here in the US (we don't get that body style at all actually).

I think you want flatter nuts on that wave guide.. i know it's not much but the obstructutions do effect the wave guide. it looks cool but It's not the best idea.

I wonder why Honda never sold that hatchback model here in the United States

Do they sell the coupe and sedan in Poland?

Go active and throw the passives away

Great job with the pillars - large drivers. I was strongly considering those DLS scan mid range drivers, but I was afraid I wouldn't be able to give them the enclosure / air save they needed.

Echo what others have said - very cool looking car.... am a fan of active processing as well, but many have made passives work well.
