It's hard to tell without the specifics, but this might be similar to
your challenge: http://www.tigerdirect.com. A good example of how they
deal with filters is to go down the path of browsing for hard drives.
You can keep adding filters by clicking on items in the left rail/
navigation area. As you get deeper in, they start to construct a
breadcrumb trail of filters you've added. I wouldn't say it's a great
experience, but they've made an attempt at handling some of the things
it sounds like you are dealing with. I'm not sure how clear it is to
people, but they are doing some useful things.
