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.

Dayton Audio XO2W-3K 2-Way Speaker Crossover 3,000 Hz
Dayton Audio XO2W-3K 2-Way Speaker Crossover 3,000 Hz is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from QualityI can't put together my own, but enjoy building speakers. These work perfect for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BIC DV62si ModAgainst some suggestions I purchased these crossovers to replace the factory crossovers that came in my BIC DV62si bookshelf speakers that I use as rear surrounds. One of the speakers had a very harsh sound - BIC was very good and sent me a replacement woofer and tweeter but the speaker still had a very harsh sound. My front speakers were DV 64's which use the same woofers and tweeters and are crossed at 3000 - so I thought why not try and cross the bookshelf speakers at 3000 and hear how they sound? The system sounds fantastic - not only for movies but I listen to music in 5.1 stereo I am extremely happy with the outcome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Crossover with a Great PriceThis is a very stout unit that is very easy to install. Lugs for in/out connections make connections a snap.Can't beat the quality for the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dayton Audio XO2W-3K 2-Way Crossover 3,000 HzThe Board is thoughtfully laid out with high quality components.I would like to see a version with 2% tolerance capacitors and Highpass for 6 ohm tweeters.Would recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great CrossoversI’m using the XO2W-3K as part of a driver and crossover replacement for my stock Mordaunt Short setup. I can’t comment on the specific performance of the crossover because the there have been so many other changes in my setup. However I can say the construction of the crossover is excellent. The components used are very high quality and far exceed the component quality of the stock items I’m replacing. Be warned if cabinet space is an issue, these crossovers are on the large side.A big thank you to Parts Express Tech support for there help choosing these crossovers.

Dayton Audio XO2W-3K 2-Way Speaker Crossover 3,000 Hz

Acarian's silk dome tweeter (buyout) appears to be unsuitable for these Dayton X-overs due to their low Re of 4.4 ohm (crossover pt. would almost double?).   Would a 4 ohm pre-assembled X-over be the way to go for the Acarian tweeter?

Asked by: Speedfreak

I'm looking to use this crossover to build a speaker with RS28F-4 tweeter and RS180-8 7" woofer. Will this work given the impedance difference? If so how will it affect the crossover point?

Asked by: ZackWillie

I have a 6 ohm woofer. What would my crossover point change to?

Asked by: shakainc
at 6 ohms your crossover point would change about 1500Hz higher.

if i ran 2-6 ohm tweeters in series (12ohm load after)... how would this effect the sound/volume when its rated for 8ohms? 

Asked by: Andrew S
The crossover point will shift only slightly since this is not a first order filter. The transfer functions will change, but without an actual model of this I cannot say how much it will shift. If the impedance is lower than the crossover rating, the crossover point will go up slightly. The opposite is true for a higher impedance.

Would this crossover work in a JBL J900MV? I find the original to be lacking in both separation of bass and mids, and the mids and highs are harsh. Would this be an improvement?

Asked by: Welagen
We do not have a cross reference available for this type of thing. Please contact our tech support for more help with this question, tech@parts-express.com or 800-338-0531 x1.

Just purchased 4 older pioneer 2 ways with a crossover of 3000 hz. CS-53 from pre 1974. Would these be a worthwhile replacement cross over?  The cabs are near mint and were a bargain @ $30/ea so I am interested in using them in my vintage setup.

Asked by: Tradition
Absolutely. These are 12 dB at 3000Hz with the ability to use the woofer at 4 or 8 ohm.
