Well, you gotta put the xover SOMEWHERE... :) these are three way speakers. Think Klipsch LaScala with better everything. I think having a single driver (compression driver covering 400-6KHz is a good thing. Then therés (folded)horn loaders bass, and tweeter from 6KHz>>top. I don't see how I could cross lower... 400Hz is already very low for a compression!

Ah, I see. Yes, taking a compression driver down to 150 Hz is not a good idea, unless you enjoy replacing diaphragms.
This actually gets to one of the basic problems with such speaker systems. A 12" or 15" woofer should not be running up to 500 or 1000 Hz. Too much mass, and, the transition from it to the midrange driver doesn't match well dispersion-wise, resulting in acoustical problems with the reverberant sound field.
