Dayton Audio XO3W-375/3K 3-Way Speaker Crossover 375/3,000 Hz

These 3-way, 2nd-order (12 dB/octave) crossovers were designed with a 3 octave spread between crossover points. Dayton Audio metallized polyester film capacitors are used in the critical midrange and tweeter signal paths. 18 gauge tweeter and midrange inductors, and 20 gauge woofer inductors are used to keep DC resistance to a minimum. A unique design feature of the low-pass section allows for the use of 4 or 8 ohm woofers, perfect for building a multi woofer system. The midrange and high-pass sections are 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: 11-3/8" W x 4-3/8" H x 2" D. Terminals are 0.205".

Dayton Audio XO3W-375/3K 3-Way Speaker Crossover 375/3,000 Hz
Dayton Audio XO3W-375/3K 3-Way Speaker Crossover 375/3,000 Hz is rated 4.375 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Under Built!Not as advertised, the low pass section is using 20AWG inductors. I have been building custom crossovers for years and would not even consider using 20AWG inductors for a low pass in a set of small book shelf speakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Built like a TANKAt first I was baulking a little over the price, but having a connector for a 4 ohm/8 ohm woofer is exactly what I needed.When I got them, I was amazed at how well these were built! Like I say, just like a tank. Nice thick PC board and even that is backed up buy a nice thick piece of fiber board that is riveted to it. Well worth the $$ once you hold one in your hand.Would, however, like to see them with with a more 'standard' 1/4" spade terminal though... Easy to find and would have saved me from having to buy a bag of connectors to fit the .208 terminals.Other than that, very impressive product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, and not as big as described.Great value. And a good thing is they are actually smaller than described, I thought I would have to do some box cutting. The description says 11 3/8" x 4 3/8" x 2", but they are actually 9 5/8" x 4 3/8" x 1 3/4". Fitted just right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for meI am running a 15" woofer, 5" mid and 300 Watt Bullet Tweeter. The crossover makes the cabinets sound so much better. The board is VERY larger so make sure you check your measurements. Also another review mentions the .203 conector size, absolutely correct! Make sure you order them at the same time as they are nearly impossible to find. I am very happy with the perfomance of Dayton and of Parts Express. two thumbs up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No voices in my subs anymore!Ordered this from Parts Express on a Monday at 11:00 AM, received on Tuesday at 4:00 and had everything installed by 7:00 that night! Unbelieveable customer service from Parts Express.Now onto the review. These crossovers are phenomenal for the price. I have no doubt that there are higher priced ones that crossover at a lower point but I don't think these can be topped for how much they cost. I had some generic xover setup in my current three way system. While the sound was ok, it wasn't where I thought it should be.After installing these xovers, I can now tell a HUGE difference in the sound. First thing, no more voices/speech coming through my 12" subs! The voices are kept to where they should be - in the mids and tweeters. Second thing, the bass tightened up alot. Third thing, my 5" midrange is also now a part of the show. Before not much was coming out of it but now its very evident that the dialog is coming from there.A couple things to note, the size measurements are correct and these are LARGE. Also, the terminals take the .205" female terminals. This size isn't always easy to find so make sure to add them onto your order to ensure proper connection.

If i ran about 280 watts of power into this x-over, how much power would go into the mid and tweeter?

Asked by: averagealex
There really are no formulas for figuring how a crossover separates power. Generally the midrange will get 10-15% of the total power and the tweeter will get 5-10% depending on the crossover point.

Matt, with that being said and the XO low point moves from 375hz to 750hz (roughly) would the midrange start at 375hz? or would it kick in at 750hz also?

Asked by: SydB
If the midrange is still 8 ohm its crossover will not change.

I recently purchased 2 new woofers ,Dayton-4ohm 12 inch woofer reference series that I am using with this crossover which I have the jumper set on 4 ohms. I am just curious though what would happen to the lower XO point if I switched the jumper to 8ohms ?

Asked by: SydB
The low pass crossover point will roughly double if you move the jumper to the 8 ohm position.

Im trying to build  4way tower speakers but I can't find any to make it work. Is there any component or something I can use still use two 8ohm woofers? I didn't want to use a passive radiator beacuse those seem kindof useless.

Asked by: speakeradric
This sounds like it will require a bit of research and feedback. I would recommend contacting our tech support via phone or email for more information regarding this type of system. 800-338-0531 x1 or petech@parts-express.com.

Anybody would recommend how to hook up 2 8 ohm woofers to a 8 ohm receiver? I was thinking I could just use a low pass crossover for the second woofer and connect it to the wires coming in before the crossover

Asked by: spaekeradric
Unfortunately there is no way to wire two 8 ohm woofers for an 8 ohm load. If you have a low pass on one of them to make it a 2.5 or 3.5 way type, it will still be a 4 ohm load on the amplifier.

I have to questions   I have a twin woofer setup and I'm using two 8 ohm woofers in parallel making it 4 ohm. Should I switch the broad to 4 ohms I guess? And if I switch it to the 4 ohm setting can I use my speakers with my 8 ohm receiver? 

Asked by: speakeradric
The crossover needs to be set to 4 ohm yes, although it will still be a 4 ohm load at the amplifier. The crossover does not maintain an 8 ohm load.
