I was looking to build some basic "garage speakers" and wanted to follow the Parts Express Project - Woodies
. You'll notice the guy that submitted the design bought a generic crossover, but I want to aim to do a bit more than that, even though I've never attempted to build/design a crossover
I'm not looking for something crazy good, but it'd be nice to get something in the ballpark... The other tough part is the info available on goldwood speakers... Here's all I could find (from Parts-Express, since Goldwood website isn't helpful at all):

Is this enough information to design a crossover? I've got a couple books I've started reading through and some material online as well to refresh my memory on all this. I don't have any test hardware, but I figured y'all would point me in the right direction... I hoped this might be a decent first post around here...
For fun, you may be entertained to know that I'll be powering these with an old school Marantz 2230 (Watch out for its 30x2 watts of fury!)
Thanks for any input...
