Dayton Audio DC28F-8 1-1/8" Silk Dome Tweeter
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?

Can you clean the silk dome?
I just built the BR-1S kit and during the process got sawdust all over the tweeter dome itself. The dome seems to be sticky and I didn't want to damage it by scraping the sawdust off. Any suggestions? Is there a liquid I could use to gently wipe on it without hurting the dome?
Hmm toughy. You could try alcohol but nothing more stronget than that. Spray alcohol on and blow the particals off with Dust-chaser. You never want to touch the dome.WE learn these things by doing: dont take the drivers out of thier boxes until you are ready to mount them.

Flush mount? Can the flange be trimmed?
I'm trying to replace the ruined drivers in an old Allison CD-6 cube. The original tweeters were flush with the cabinet face. Should this tweeter be mounted so that the top of the flange is flush with the cabinet? The originals were exactly 4" dia. Can I trim the flange on this down without ruining it, or am I better off expanding the diameter of the recess on the cabinet?
TRIM TO MAKE THEM FIT. .THE FLANGE HAS SOME ROOM TO WORK WITH , CAN BE REMOVED TO TRIM AND NOT HURT THE DOME ASSEMBLY , AND NOTICE HOW EASY THE REPLACING IS. IF YOU HAPPEN TO BLOW ONE ,YOU JUST LIFT THE OLD ONE OUT AND DROP IN THE NEW ONE AND USE A 15 WATT PENCIL 20 GA INTERNAL WIRE TO XOVER GET ON THE CONNECTION AND SOLDIER QUICKLY TO NOT MELT PLASTIC OR PULL THE FEED LEAD LOSE. SLIDE ON CONNECTORS MAY BE BETTER FOR NOVICE DIY'ERS! VERY GOOD TWEETER CHOICE ALSO!
