Is it ok to use an ordinary polarized Electrolytic Capacitor for a High pass filter? Or do I need to use a bipolar capacitor?

I currently have 2way passive for my midrange and tweets. And using the amp's lowpass xover for my midbass. Am planning to use the capacitor to HP my midbass while saving up for my crossover. :)

No, polarized caps won't work.  You need non-polarized electrolytic, and preferably a poly cap designed for audio use.
