Dayton Audio XO2W-4.5K 2-Way Speaker Crossover 4,500 Hz
Did I buy the best Crossover for my application? Or would you reccomend something different or custom? (see additional details)
I bought this "Dayton Audio XO2W-4.5K 2-Way Speaker Crossover 4,500 Hz" (part# 260-148) for my pair of rear surrounds for my 7.1 Home Theater.I built the sealed enclosures to house the following speakers: "Aurum Cantus AC180/50F1 7" Woofer" (part# 296-448), and a "Dayton Audio PT2C-8 Planar Tweeter" (part# 275-085). Each cabinet box is a wedge style, sealed enclosure with just over 0.5cuft of air space (internal volume).The speakers will be powered by my Pioneer Elite VSX-32 (110w RMS x7).Did I buy the best Crossover? Or would you reccomend something different or custom?
That crossover point will be okay, the only modifications you may need to make are to the tweeter. It is 4 dB more sensitive than the woofer so it may require padding. This may not be very critical as surround speakers.

Series of Parallel connection of 2 Woofers?
I'm refurbishing an old Hifi system using two Goldwood GW-210/8 8 Ohm woofers and an Goldwood GT-25 4" cone tweeter. Do I need to attach the woofers in series or parallel? Also, should I set the crossover to 8 Ohm or 4 Ohm?
You will want to wire these in parallel (red to red, black to black) and set the crossover to 4 ohms.

How do I know what Hz to go with for my PA cabinets?
The only way to know is to be familiar with the lowest recommended crossover frequency for the horn driver. The manufacture should be able to rovide you with this information.

Will this tweeter work with this X-over range?
Replacing Polk Audio R50 tweeter. I do not know any original specs for these speakers. Both tweets are blown and X-over components are melted but woofers are fine.
The tweeter will work with this crossover fine, but the 4.5KHz crossover frequency is too high for the R50 woofers to disperse properly.

Which drivers are ideal for this XO?
I want to build a battery powered boombox and I have the 2x100 Class T Sure Amp. I want to purchase 4x Dayton Audio PA130-8 5-1/4" Drivers with 4x Vifa BC25SC55-04 Tweeters.Do I have to find different, 4 Ohm Drivers?Are there any mis-matches with the drivers and tweeters I;'ve selected with this Crossover?
Wire the tweeters in SERIES to give an 8 ohm load to the crossover (matching it perfectly), and wire the woofers in parallel, selecting the 4 ohm woofer wiring on the crossover to perfectly match the woofer to the crossover and the amp. The crossover will operate correctly, and the efficiency of the woofers and tweeters should match very closely. I think you will get a very good result.I don't know why you want two tweeters on each side, so if you found a single 8 ohm tweeter with adequate power handling and frequency range, that might give you more phase coherence on the top end. That is my only suggestion.

if i use a 6 ohm load on the woofer end, what should i select on the crossover? 4 or 8 ohm?
the woofer response is upwards of 5kHz, & the tweeter is 4ohm, bottoming out @ 3.5kHz.
This crossover would still work. Refer to a speaker cross-over chart [Google] which will show you the relationship of cross-over componentry & speaker impedance to frequency response.An 8 ohm spkr @ 5Khz will cross-over at 10Khz at 4 ohms. 6 ohms would put you in the middle at about 7.5Khz.Tweeters are more forgiving because of the wide range of frequency they can produce. Sometimes you just have to try what sounds good.
