Lets say I want to build a 2 way tower speaker with an 8" woofer and a tweeter.

Just by looking at the specs of woofer and tweeter , I want to select a suitable 2 way crossover as well.

So what matching parameters should I look at first ?? How do we decide the a particular woofer and tweeter work well with a particular crossover?

Lets say for a newbee, are there any thumb rules etc to ensure minimum guarantee?

Should we consider enclosure design also in the beginning itself?

Just for example, im listing below some random specs.

Any guidance please .... (im also studying whatever i can)

**TWEETER**
