Dayton Audio DC28FT-8 1-1/8" Silk Dome Truncated Tweeter
How low could we go with this tweeter, 1500 hz 2nd order, 3rd order? Trying to find the right one to couple with an 8" woofer so I can have a bit better bass extension without beaming.
I wouldn't recommend crossing this any lower than 1,800, regardless of filter type. I would look at the RS28F-4 if you are interested in crossing that low.

Can I remove the faceplate and mount the tweeter directly to a baffle? The baffle will probably be 1/4" acrylic.
Yes this is doable. I would recommend a round-over or chamfer around the dome to prevent any unwanted response issues but this should work perfectly fine.

I have an older pair of Sony speakers, SS-U590, would these make a drop in fit?

Thanks MattP for the Ohm L response. Followup Q: the Ohm L sensitivity = 89dB. Do I need to choose a tweeter with the same 89dB sensitivity or higher to account for losses in the crossover? If higher, how much higher? XO will be LR 2nd order at 1,700Hz

Converting 3way Ohm L's (vintage 80s) to 2way. Current Xover stated as 1,700 Hz 1st order BW. But it has 8.2 mF cap (no inductors). All drivers 8 ohm. I'll be recapping. Will this DC28FT-8 work at 1,700 1st order without inductors? thanks for the help
I would not recommend using this or any of our tweeters at 1,700 first order. This will work at that frequency second order though, which will require a 1 mH coil and that 8.2 uF cap.

would DC28FT-8's work in B652 with cabinet mods?
Yes these would work with cabinet modifications.
