1/2" Mylar Dome Shielded Tweeter 8 Ohm
I'm using a 2.2mf cap on the tweeter,the woofer has no crossover just it's natural roll off. Will putting a resistor between the amp and the cap on the tweeter affect the crossover point? (That is before the cap not after )
I would like to use these tweeters in a budget garage speaker project along w/ the GRS 8" full range. What would a good starting point be for the crossover? I want to keep it simple (cap only), using a sealed cab design, powered by Lepai 2020A.
A 3 uF cap would be a good place to start for this tweeter. You can go lower in value for a higher crossover point, but I would not recommend larger than 3 uF.

Is the 88dB measured with the 2.2 Ohm in series?
The Reason I asked this questions is because the tweeter was too load when paired with a HiVi B3N. However, tired of waiting for a reply, I just replaced the resistor with a 4 Ohm and like the balance much more. I used a simple first order crossover with 2.2uF (poly) and 0.1mH (air core). The B3Ns are tuned down to around 48Hz and these tweeters add a real crispy high end. Loving the sound as desktop speakers.

How well would these work with the Aura NS3-193-8A? Crossover around 8K?
These should work well for that application.

I have a few pair of Dayton b652. Except for the color of the "cone", these look identical to the tweeter in them. Is it? If not, is this a higher or lower quality part?
The 292-438 GRS 1TM-4 is a closer match for the original specifications of the B652 tweeter. This tweeter is similar quality, but has a dual magnet assembly that may result in different performance from the original B652 tweeter.

does the included res. work as a "crossover"
No it does not, it only buffers the output- a simple first order crossover could just be a 2.2 ufcapacitor in series , a shallow slope starting at about 9000 hrtz. Wire the capacitor in line onthe tweeters + terminal. ERSE has a free online crossover calculator.
