Re: home grown crossovers...

I would skip 3rd order and just go straight to 4th. Put a pair of butterworths in series and you have a 4th order linkwitz-riley, I believe it only takes a pair of inductors and caps per filter, so 4 inductors and 4 caps per crossover. The power handling will depend on what size inductors you choose, you can get some that will handle a ton of current but they'll be very large. Check for the individual components, their prices are very reasonable.

If you don't want to take up so much room you can just do a butterworth filter, it's second order but has some nice performance, and only takes one cap and inductor per filter.
