I play a lot of sand volleyball (I also dive... far too much) and from my experience I have given up on sunglasses for the most part. The Maui Jim's do work well, but I only have glass lenses in all of mine and the weight does not work well when diving. I owned the Oakley Gascan before switching to Maui Jim's a few years back (would never go back) and they just did not hold up. Any cheap polarized lens has done well enough although the fit is never great and the clarity is terrible. The only option I haven't tried yet is to get the Maui Jim's in a lighter lens. On top of diving, the other problem I have witnessed is people getting hit in the face and the glasses breaking. It sure would be sad to have a $200+ pair of sunglasses broken after a few games.
I have never heard these speakers personally. A lot of people appear to enjoy the sound of them. They look fairly easy for a first build if you follow the kit. Here is a link to the kit which is what you should buy instead of trying to determine your own crossover. https://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-br-1-6-1-2-2-way-bookshelf-monitor-speaker-kit-pair--300-640 This looks like it will still require soldering the crossovers together, which is why I asked your knowledge of building them. It is a fairly easy crossovers with instructions and pictures included in the manual.
A few questions: 1. What is your budget? 2. Are you against making your own boxes? 3. What knowledge do you have in building crossovers? If this is your first attempt at a project like this I would suggest a kit. There are numerous plans available at various price points. This is a much more difficult task than first time builders tend to think.
