Dayton Audio XO3W-375/3K 3-Way Speaker Crossover 375/3,000 Hz
are these Linkwitz-Riley or Butterworth? THX
These are 3-way crossovers, and they use a "constant-power" topology that produces flat summed response instead of the humped midrange response that a non-constant-power topology sometimes provides. They are neither Linkwitz-Riley nor Butterworth.

Dayton XO3W-375/3k My horn driver is 8 ohms; the mid is 4, and the woofer is 4 ohms. I have the jumper in the crossover in the 4 ohm position. Is it safe this way? Should I be using an 8 ohm mid driver? The horn is much louder than everything else.
When using a 4 ohm woofer the jumper will need to be in the 4 ohm position. A 4 ohm mid will cause a shift in crossover frequency and slope, so an 8 ohm is recommended. Most horns are much more sensitive than mids or woofers and often will need to be attenuated with an L-pad to match woofer and midrange output levels.

I want to find a crossover for a cerwin vega mx400 3way loudspeaker. It has one 15" woofer a 6" mid and a small horn tweeter. Someone removed the crossover before I got this. I just want to find the correct xo points and a xo that handles 400 rms
The Eminence PXB3:5ko 3 way crossover is a better choice for your mx-400 cerwin vega speakers. Part number 290-654

What load will on my amp of I use a 4ohm sub, 8 ohm mid & 6 ohm tweeter?
The biggest load on the amp will be 4 ohms due to the impedance of the woofer. This would be considered a 4 ohm nominal speaker system.

Want to build towers modeled after my jbl j900mv's ( liked the sound), but with ribbon tweeters. I was going to go with RSVP 225-8, dc50-fa-8, pt2c-8 x overs. Yes, no?

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