Hello I have a chance to pic up some used Morel Ovation, MKII, and some CDM 88 speakers locally, all for a great price I believe. The bad is they dont come with any crossovers which sucks.

I would be running a Crossfire VR404 to some of these.
My questions are,
Can I run them straight off my amp using its xover and a cap for the tweeter?
Can I buy some random passive xovers like Focal, Alpine, Ect and run them?
Can I run an Eclipse 2101 with my amp to them?
Or an electronic xover?
Or your suggestion hear...

I am real tight on funds so I cant afford a processor, and am just trying to get a decent system on a students budget. If you need more info please just let me know. Any and all help would be great.
thank you
Brian

Thank you for the quick reply.
I wish I could, but I would have no idea how to do that unless you told me every step.

Other then building one, would any of the other idea's I had work? I am not in a hurry to do the install seeing that I havent even bought them yet. So I could save some money to buy somthing.

Second Order Passive Crossovers, 12 dB per Octave
I choose 2nd order passive as it is quite easy to construct.... Like LPF at 2000Hz, you need a 0.2mH coil and 4.7uf capacitor. For HPF, you will need the same pair of components, just capacitor first follow by coil... You may get the idea from the above link....

So I pulled the trigger and got the Morel Dotech Ovation, MKII and the CDM-88 yesterday.
There is a set of Xtant XSC2 2-way and a set of Morel Hybrid Ovation II Crossovers with ADMW 3 Way Add On Cross Overs on Ebay. Will these work for my speakers?

The MX-22.4 xover say's its crossed over at 1800Hz, but the Ovation 6 uses the MX-20.4,5,6 xover and is crossed over at 3200Hz 6dB/octave.

To me this seems a bit off from a match or am I just reading the Morel Web site wrong?

I haven't made any headway on making some xovers yet, but I found a great deal on a Eclipse cd5030 this week and just couldn't pass up the chance to get another Eclipse deck. It seems I should be able to scrap the xover deal and just use this deck with some caps on my tweets. Am I wrong? With this deck can I run my system active (IMO)=crossing the frequency over before it gets to my amp?
I would love to hear some feedback from you guys.
Brian
