Dayton Audio XO2W-2.5K 2-Way Speaker Crossover 2,500 Hz

The Dayton Audio line of 2-way crossovers were designed using a second order (12 dB/octave) Linkwitz-Riley alignment. Dayton Audio metallized polyester film capacitors are used in both the high and low pass sections. 18 gauge inductors were used to keep DC resistance to a minimum. A unique design feature of the low pass section allows use of 4 or 8 ohm woofers, perfect for building D'Appolito style or multi woofer 2-way systems. The high pass crossover frequency is rated for an 8 ohm load. All components are glued or fastened down to eliminate buzzing and vibrations. The high quality blue PC board uses a back plate for added rigidity and eyelet holes for easy mounting. Available in a variety of crossover points. 300W power handling. Board measures: 6-1/2" W x 4-1/4" H x 1-3/8" D. Terminals are 0.205".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Sounding X-OverInstalled a pair of these X-Overs and a pair of Pyle Pro PDS442 tweeters into a pair of Kustom 12" monitors. Now the monitors sound good enough to be the main speakers if needed. Also the monitors are rated at 300 watts now, and the 12" Kustom speakers can handle the power with the tweeters. The clarity of the music now is amazing with more than enough highs for the tweeter. The person I installed these parts for was very happy with the sound also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved me a lot of timeThe selection of crossover frequencies and woofer impedances in this product line made it easy to select the right assembly. The results sound great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely smooth transition in frequency and great valueAfter Trying these crossovers in some of my cabinets I have went exclusively to them in all of my cabinets for the simple reason I cant find a better made crossover for the money any where.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reasonably priced replacement.Best fit for two speaker replacement for 12" Utah Celestra Tri Axial and 1" compression tweeter for homebuilt tuned port speakers built in college over 45 years ago. Coupled to the GRS 12PR-8 12" woofer and the Goldwood GT-510 1" dome tweeter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from i think they're making my receiver run hot / overload ??I put these in a pair of sony ss-b1000 . I had to cut out some of the woofer opening to get the crossovers in them . I soldered everything . I used to run these speakers very loud with my sherwood receiver sometimes for maybe 1 1/2 to 2 hours without any problem , even though the receiver was in a "cubbyhole" . Now with the crossover in them I can only play them loud for maybe 5 minutes and my receiver shuts off . I got the receiver out of it's cubbyhole and put it on a wire rack shelf I installed in the open area of the entertainment center where the tv is designed to go . The area is open in the back and front and I now have about 15" of open space above and below the receiver but that didn't help any . I'm next going to try a fan on top of the receiver so it draws air thru the bottom of the receiver and blows it out at the top . I did check the resistance of the speakers at the ends of the speaker wires ( that would be hooked up to the receiver ) and I got 9.6 ohms from both speakers . I was mainly looking if there was a difference between the 2 of them , which would give an indication that something wrong is causing the difference . I also checked a minimus 7 speaker that I installed a crossover I made with inductors and capacitors and resistors and it also was 9.6 ohms , so I don't think there is any problem with the speakers or crossovers , but for some reason they make the receiver shut down . I can turn it back on immediately and it's lowered it's volume for me and then it will play but if I turn it up much beyond the point that it's lowered itself to it will again shut down . I'm just assuming too hot , even though to put my hand over it it doesn't seem very warm , so overheating may not be the problem .The speakers do sound a lot better than they did before , and they sounded pretty good before . They now sound somewhat clearer , I suppose I'd call it . It's like before the woofers were getting a lot of high freq. that I just don't think they like , and now they get just the freq's. they're made for . I know they're not studio quality but I just wanted something to play music and watch dvd's and / or videos in 2 channel sound . I'm not out to impress anyone with my system but for it's price I think it sounds pretty good .The crossovers look very well made and it looks like the circuit tracing side has silicone on it and then it is attatched to a backing board with open rivets you use to mount them . Be sure to check the internal size of your cabinet to make sure they will fit . Like I said , I opened up the opening of the woofer slightly to get them in the cabinet . The woofer still seals of like it should .I feel the crossovers are really nice but somehow are making my receiver have a problem . I don't fault the crossover , I think it's the fault of my receiver . I don't know if someone can reply to this with any ideas , but if you can I would appreciate it . Thanks

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. 

Asked by: Kevin_KL
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?

Asked by: Cleanburn
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

Asked by: ChanceShaw
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?

Asked by: visierl
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.

If I hook a 8 ohm woofer and an 8 ohm tweeter to these, will I end up with a 4 ohm load?

Asked by: slcdjd
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!

Asked by: Duyncd
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.
