    Hello and welcome

    What horn will you be using on the 2446, and what is the application of this speaker?
    A 2241 will have to be crossed low, so you will either have to use a big horn on the 2446 (like a 2360), or use a midbass driver in-between.
    Also you better go active, because there is no chance your passive crossover will just work right out of the box with your drivers ans horns.

    ...based on these drivers, you will have an empty hole between 100 and 800 depending on the horn used....

    you could always sell the 2241s and replace them with 2225s or 2226s, I suppose.
