Dayton Audio ND16FA-6 5/8" Neodymium Dome Tweeter
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.

Could i use this with the Dayton DC250-8 10 only or would i also need a midrange. Also a suggestions on a reasonable priced crossover Thanks
A midrange would be needed, yes. The upper useable frequency range of the DC250 is 2500 Hz, the tweeter's useable range is 3500 Hz and above. An appropriate 3-way crossover could be PE item# 260-210. Most 3" or 4" speakers will have useable frequency response extending above and below the 800 and 5000 Hz crossover frequencies of this crossover.

How to I add a bass blocker to these?
I want to replace my car's tweeters with these. How do I block the bass? The factory tweeter have a cap on them, but cannot be removed. What cap do I use and how do I wire it?
I would try to keep it above 4k to keep it clean. Use a 027-336 np electrolytic cap on the positive lead. This will give a 6db/octave roll off @ 4000hz. It's not ideal, but should work fine. Hope this helps.

Is there a version of this tweet with higher power handling?
There are a lot of tweeters out there; lots of them with high power handeling. What you need to do is decide how you are going to use a tweet (what kind of music, volume and sound quality desired, where you intend to use it, other components - woofs, mids, xovers- etc) then try to match things up with the available offerings.This tweet will hit 98db with 2 watts headroom-properly crossed over- and that's pretty good for a small system. Used in multiples it will get seriously loud.Tell us more about your needs, expectations and budget and we'll try to give you more help.
