Problem with 150-170 is the mids sound good, but the I can tell the mid bass is coming from underneath me since the subs have to produce sound up to the same crossover point
I had mine set to 90hz between mids and sws-8
But I'd you're giving the speakers, they can't handle such a low crossover point
I was only giving them about 50 watts each

This is where the MS-8 is great
Being able to try different crossover points without getting out of the drivers seat is cool

As for tweeters recommendations, not sure
I was using very old school tweeters that were made in the 80s or 90s
Can't get them anymore

i was just playing with the xover point on the L7s and they sure do sound good. The Hifi would distort under 200hz. The L7s play down to 100hz well. They actually put out some decent midbass, but i am afraid of there power handling with 70w rms. So i put them at 160hz for now.
