One connection terminal is marked in red and the other is not. Which is the positive terminal? Thanks.
the positive is the terminal marked with the red.

I'm planning a stereo setup with each two-way box using a Dayton HARB252-8 along with this tweeter. Would a 2nd order Linkwitz-Riley crossover at 4k Hz be sufficient? Also, how much of a pad should I consider for this tweeter to tone it down?
I would recommend bumping the crossover up to 5k if you are going second order. The tweeter will need to be padded 9-12 dB in order to match the woofer output.

Hi there, I want to use this tweeter with Part # 295-342 What crossover is advised and what is the risk on the lower watts? I have a 100watts 6 ohm amp so i'm afraid i will blow these.... suggestions appreciated

does the nd16fa-6 tweeter need a resister ?
It does require a crossover for protection, but the values are determined by the crossover point and slop you wish to achieve. A resistor may be necessary to pad the tweeter, but this is determined by the sensitivity of the speakers you want to use with it.

which size crimp terminals fit this Dayton tweeter ? None of the ones in the PE crimp kit I have do . I wound up soldering on but would have preferred crimps as the terminals are so close to the small body of this tweeter
These terminals are only intended to be soldered, we do not have any crimp type F disconnects that will fit them unfortunately.

I plan on using this tweeter with the HIVI B3N crossed over at 5000hz 6dB per octave. Do you think I will need an attenuation circuit to reduce the sensitivity compared to the B3N? HIVI used 2.83v/1m for this and Dayton used 1W/1m.
There is a good chance you will need to pad the tweeter down a few dB in this application. I would also recommend bumping the crossover up to around 7kHz if you only plan on using a cap on the tweeter.
