Dayton Audio DC28FS-8 1-1/8" Silk Dome Shielded Tweeter
Is it ok to surface mounth this tweeter for the project ? Or flush mounting will make much difference ?
It is recommended that you flush mount a tweeter. Surface mounting can cause ripples in the frequency response from diffraction issues, but whether this is audible or not is subjective.

Hello, I am looking for a replacement 30 watt 8 ohm tweeter for my Roland DS-90 monitor speaker. Your "Dayton Audio DC28F-8 1-1/8" Silk Dome Tweeter" looks similar although it has only 3 mounting screws and mine has 4. Do you know if there's one with 4?
We have many tweeters with four mounting holes, although there will probably be heavy cabinet cutout modifications to get any of them to fit. If you can call or email our tech support with the dimensions of the cutouts we can see if we have anything that will work. 800-338-0531 x1 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Is it possible to solder these? And will I break my warranty if I do?
Yes you can solder these. The warranty will not be voided if you do but they will not be able to be returned without a restock fee if you do not like them.

Well, the crossover point could be 1500 hz. to 1600 hz. and slope is dependent on your taste. I have recommended a few below.

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.

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.
