Dayton Audio DC28F-8 1-1/8" Silk Dome Tweeter
Will it work fine if crossed at 2500Hz?
Yes this will work well crossed at 2,500 Hz as long as it is second order or higher.

Are these a big step down from the reference series tweeters from dayton audio? My crossover is designed for a 8 ohm tweeter instead of a 4 ohm and the reference tweeters are not available in 8 ohm. Or would you guys recommend another tweeter?
The Dayton Classic tweeter is our best seller, although it does not have quite the motor design and low distortion of the Reference tweeters. If you would like a very similar tweeter to the reference that is 8 ohm, consider the Usher 9930-20 or 9950-20 instead.

Hello, are people using these with the acoustic research ar6. Looking for a replacement. I think crossover point on ar6 is 1800. Thanks
These make great replacement tweeters for many different speakers. They will handle a crossover at 1800 so as long as they will fit in the cabinet or you can modify it, they will be a good choice.

I'm reading mine at around 5.5-6Ω. Is this normal? Are they just that sensitive? Should my crossover be for 8Ω or a 6Ω?
Yes this is normal. These have a slightly lower than average DCR although they are considered a nominal impedance of 8 ohm and will work with 6 or 8 ohm crossovers.

Recommended crossover frequency in a two-way system
I'm planning a first order crossover at 2,000 hz, to be used in conjunction with a GRS 10PR-8 10" woofer, 35 -3,000 hz. Is the tweeter okay at 2,000, or better at a higher x-o frequency? How high is too high for the woofer?
The tweeter is good to about 2500 hz with a first order crossover. Your 10" is not really a good match though... Here's a simple cheat... If you want to do a speaker with a 6db crossover... If a driver is spec'd from 500 - 5000 hz... then it's usable range is 1000 - 2500... Half the numbers... So your tweeter has a low end of 1300, so 2500 is safe. Your woofer choice however has a high end of 3000, so 2500 is too high for it to operate musically. Also - from about 500 - 800 you're in the critical mid-bass and you want the best sound from this range... Maybe a three way? Or a great two way with a 6" driver and separate sub?
