Product Details

Dayton Audio XO3W-500/4K 3-Way Speaker Crossover 500/4,000 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 subwoofers, 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".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Xover rocks!Eric did a great job explaining speaker design basics, & how this xover differs from the others. Great flexibility to recycle components in future projects, this xover has a jumper that changes impedance based on woofer config.
Date published: 2008-12-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible crossover for an incredibly low price!I never used Dayton xovers before, but when I got around to using this model, it is phenomenally good.The feature of using 4ohm or 8ohm woofers is the best idea for a crossover in a long time.The octave roll offs are right on the money.Shipping was fast, parts express rules!

Asked by: Deserat_048
With two 8 ohm woofers in parallel, you want the plug in the 4 ohm position.

HOW DOES THIS HOOK UP TO SPEAKER WIRES

Asked by: BEAR362
This crossover uses 0.25" solder terminals for wire connection. These can either be soldered to, or connected with 0.25" female disconnects.

How easy is the install?

No stranger to audio, but a newbie to electronics. I'm upgrading a pair of Yamaha NS635a, and looking to replace the xoer for a decent entry level xover. How easy is the to setup? Can I just wire to respective drivers? Thanks
Asked by: Base2011
Yes. Easy to install. 2 input terminals & 3 sets of speaker terminals. All you need is an input jack plate some 16 gauge or higher wire and a soldering iron + solder. There are good quality components in this crossover as well.

Im looking to replace the cross overs in my pair of JBL e60 speakers. will this cross over suit my needs?

Asked by: Bennny
JBL has produced many speakers over the years. Needing to replace your present ones may be a sign that something else could be wrong. In general, JBL speakers are designed so well that the crossovers are the last components to fail. Can you include what the driver numbers are? That would indicate what kind of crossovers would work well for your setup. 500Hz and 4,000Hz is a conservative setup for a 3 way system though.
