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

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?
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 ?
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.
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 email@example.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
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?
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.
