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

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.
