Are you using the external crossovers supplied with your 2 or 3-way component speakers or are you using the built-in crossovers in your amp(s)? Pros and cons?

Use both...

Unless you are bi-amping your components (ie: sending a separate channel to each driver), only using the amp's built in crossover could still screw up your component.

Ie: I high pass my amp signal at 120hz and above. Those signals are still too high for the tweeter, but ok for the midrange/woofer.

In a biamp situation, I'd have a single channel going to the tweeter which I high pass at like 10khz and another channel going to the woofer at like 120hz and above.

If I use the passive crossovers in a biamp situation, then I can actually build a bandpass crossover to put both a high and low end filter going to each driver.
