Dayton Audio XO2W-2.5K 2-Way Speaker Crossover 2,500 Hz
Hello, Would this crossover work as a replacement in polk audio monitor ii 40's? I believe the original crossover frequency is 2.3 khz.
This crossover is unlikely to provide exactly the same features or performance as the original crossover, however if a replacement crossover from Polk Audio is not within reach, this crossover should help get you making sound again until you have a genuine Polk Audio replacement in hand.

I bought 2 Dayton XO2W 2.5k x-overs from you. They're designed for 8 ohm horns but I'm curious. How would it affect the performance, crossover point, etc if I were to use a 16 ohm horn driver (with 8 ohm LF driver)? Would it damage the crossover or horn?
A 16 ohm driver will shift the crossover point and change the slope of the roll off. In this case it will shift lower in frequency. It will not damage the crossover, but it could damage the horn driver if it cannot handle a crossover point lower than 2.5kHz.

I'm looking to buy a pair of Dayton Audio B652-AIR, however I want to install a crossover. I'm not very knowledgeable when it comes to crossovers though. Will these work well with those, or should I look at a different crossover. Thanks
I would not recommend crossing that tweeter any lower than about 4,500 Hz. We do have a Dayton model at this frequency, but you may also need an L-Pad for the tweeter attenuation as well.

I am building a sealed enclosure Emminence Alpha 6A / Emminence ASD-1001 into Dayton H07E Waveguide mid/high satellite. Is 2.5KHz the right crossover frequency for this application or should I go lower / higher?
Yes 2.5kHz will work, but Eminence recommends a third order filter. They actually have a pre made crossover specifically for this tweeter which you can see below.http://www.parts-express.com/eminence-pxb2-2k5cx-2-way-speaker-crossover-board-2500-hz--290-635

If I hook a 8 ohm woofer and an 8 ohm tweeter to these, will I end up with a 4 ohm load?
No, the load the amplifier sees will still be 8 ohms. Using a basic two way crossover and 8 ohm drivers, the amplifier effectively sees a single full range 8 ohm driver.

Could i use this crossover with these drivers below : - HiVi SD1.1-A 1" Textile Dome Tweeter - HiVi M6N 6" Aluminum/Magnesium Midbass Or could you advise me another x-over better for this project?many thanks!
Unfortunately the tweeter will not work well with this low of a crossover point. I would recommend the 3,500 Hz model instead. These drivers should work well together.
