mixing 16 ohm woofer with 8 ohm horn


I am recently retired and am about to embark on a speaker project for the first time. I have the cabinet building skills, it's the speaker smarts I lack. I like the onken style design or I will go with a traditional Altec design. My component are; a pair of each altec 414-16b's, (16 ohm) and 902-8t 511b, (8 ohm), do I need to go the bi-amp route or is there a crossover type way to resolve this. I appreciate any info and reasoning as to why.

Thank you,
