There are cheap old school Q-series speakers and crossovers available everywhere besides more expensive partial or complete sets. Please post your experiences with:

*Going between passive and active Q-series setups
*Running 3-way or even 2-way with NON-MB Quart midbass
*Added MB Quart Q-series drivers to other SQ setups
*Used MB Quart crossovers with non-MBQ drivers

I have a pile of every old school Q series crossover ever made and a few drivers that I want to use for 3-4 systems. One of the systems will be a 3-way active with Dynadio MW180 10" midbass, QM 216.81 6.5" or QSD 4" for midrange and some Q tweeters. The others will be probably passive 2-ways using the old school Q crossovers and a variety of Q/ads/Dynaudio 6.5-10" drivers or whatever sounds good. I might run the MB quart tweeters in all the setups because I have plenty and so far I never heard anything better (thanksgod for all the people mounting them in their face and complaining about harshness before tuning their systems or going -6db...keeps the prices low:). But if you used some other tweeters that you liked with any of the Q-series setups please share.

Saw this old thread... anyone know of specs on the old crossovers and what was made for which tweeters? I suspect that most of the crossovers werefor 4 ohm everything except for the newer q stuff and some of the other lines... anything with 25mm tweeter was a 6ohmn tweeter?
