Dayton Audio DC28FS-8 1-1/8" Silk Dome Shielded Tweeter
Best X-Over point for this tweeter
This will be in a 2-way design and want a pre-built X-over but which one would be prefer d. I will have two 8" 4ohm woofers wired at 8ohms 65watts each 89db for the lower end. Thank You for the help
I would need to know the frequency response of your woofers, for example, let's say you have a pair of 8" woofers, you want to add some tweeters, to make them suitable for full range audio, and their frequency responcse is 40Hz-1.5Khz, you would want a tweeter that can prodece around the woofer's frequency top off, of 1.5Khz, In that situation, I would use a tweeter that is rated for around 1Khz-20Khz, and cross it over at 1.5Khz to match your woofers specs. Once again I would need to know your woofer's frequecy reponse.

I can't see any polarity markings on the terminals...is the red one (on the left in the picture above) the negative terminal?
In everything except thermocouples, red is always the positive lead.

Can these be used in an Acoustic Suspension Box?
I have a large acoustic suspension speaker system (sealed box) that I am thinking about tinkering with by replacing the tweeters with these? Would these be OK for this application?
You sure can, these will work in any type of box you mount them in. They are sealed in the back so you should not have to worry about any sort of rear wave interaction between this and another driver. Now what you have to worry about is if your original tweeters crossover will work with these. If the original tweeter is 8 ohms then there should not be much to worry about except for differences in sensitivity between these and the old tweeters.
