Dayton Audio ND16FA-6 5/8" Neodymium Dome Tweeter
I'm pairing this with the HiVi M5N Midbass. What would be the recommended freq & type of crossover? Also, these two drivers seem fairly closely matched in sensitivity (only 1dB off) so is an l-pad in order or can I go without?
I would recommend a second order crossover at 4,500 Hz for this tweeter. You may not need attenuation on the tweeter but you will only know for sure once you get it all wired up.

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.

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.
