Dayton Audio DC28F-8 1-1/8" Silk Dome Tweeter
I'm thinking of replacing some no-name tweeters with these, but the existing crossover is currently a 2nd-Order Linkwitz-Riley at 2500hz highpass. Is this too high or do you think it will blend nicely?
2500Hz 12dB crossover will be fine.

Can you recomend a midrange that match's well with the Dayton DC28F-8 silky and the Dayton DC200-8 8" woofer? The midrange cannot be larger then 31/2" in overall diameter. Maybe a truncated 4".

How can I test the polarity on these?
There isn't a very good method of testing polarity on a tweeter since the normal battery test won't yield much of a result, and can be dangerous for a tweeter. The polarity is marked in red on these. If the marking is no longer visible, the left terminal as pictured on our website is positive.

Would these work well with the GSR 8PR-8 (Part # 292-428)? if so, which crossover should I use?
This should work well with a low crossover point. The lowest we offer is 2kHz which you can see below.http://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-xo2w-2k-2-way-speaker-crossover-2000-hz--260-140

I am considering using this tweeter with the Dayton DS175-8 6 1/2" woofer. Woofer response is up to 4500 Hz. Tweeter response is down to 1300 Hz. Within that range, do you have a recommended crossover frequency for this pair ? Why ? thanks
I would recommend a crossover point of about 2kHz for this combination. The upper end of the woofer starts to droop a bit and the lower crossover point will help eliminate beaming at higher frequencies.
