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 polypropylene capacitors are used in critical midrange and tweeter signal paths. 18 gauge inductors were used to keep DC resistance to a minimum. A unique design feature of the low pass section allows 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-500/4K 3-Way Speaker Crossover 500/4,000 Hz is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great crossover!these are the best off-the-shelf crossovers I have ever used...much larger than the pic's suggest... not audiophile, but not far from it...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wow good qualitymost of the time crossovers can seem a little cheap but this one is good all the way through clear separation speakers have much better output than before very easy to use no fuss at all

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very good product.just what i expected and simple to install.works great!

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.

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!

adding additional sub woofers ?

How do I wire additional woofers to this crosssover? do I wire them in series or do I wire each woofer in a row positive to positives and negative to Negatives in a line. and can I run 4 woofers on this? each woofer is 125 watts max and at 4 Ohm.
Asked by: Strader
This would work fine for your application. Choose the 4 ohm tap setting on the crossover and wire your speakers to the woofer outlet according to the schematic below.

Final Impedance?

I want to use this to run a 3 way car audio setup where each driver is 8 Ohm. What will the final Ohm load be when using this? 2.667 Ohm?
Asked by: zombie6
It will be close to 8ohms.

Wattage to each driver?

I want to use this with 2 dayton 10" aluminum woofers at 4 ohm, and 8 ohm mids and highs. My question is how is the wattage divided up between the low, mid and high? If I give the crossover 150wrms would each speaker see 50watts or is it a different ratio?
Asked by: Ninesvnsicks
Where the power goes does not depend on the crossover as much as the audio being played. For instance if you played a sound of a cymbal through you speakers most the power would go to the mid and tweeter and very little to the woofer. Now if you played a double bass through them the power would be goint to the woofer and mid. In general with music most of the power goes to the woofer, then to the mid and at last the tweeter, as for the exact amount that again would depend on what you are playing.

Wanting to build a 3 way center channel (wmtw). Would this xover work?

I am a relative noob with complex speaker builds. I've built a couple of subs (using online calcs), car systems (simple) and a homemade boombox using an modified ATX power supply. This will be my first "real" build and of course I'm tackling a center channel. My surround system is 5.1 and I'll be using the Dayton 6.5" enclosed ceiling speakers for L/R/SL/SR and a homemade sub. after looking at several setups I'd like to do a 3 way center (WMTW) and was wondering about a xover but I haven't the experience to build my own. Would this one work?
Asked by: rumble phish
Short answer, yes, it will work. But you will have to level match the drivers you use. Generally midranges and tweeters are more efficient than woofers, so you are looking at adding resistive padding networks to those drivers to get them matched in output level to the woofer. Look up L-pads.

Building a 3-way center channel speaker-will this crossover work?

I am building a 3-way center channel speaker to match by Paradigm studio 60 front channel towers. It calls for two 5 1/2 in bass drivers, a 3 1/2 in midrange and a 1 in tweeter. Will the crossover work and what speakers would you recommend that would be compatible with it.?
Asked by: Phil S
IN MY HUMBLE OPINION , TWO TANG BAND 4 IN TI CONE WOOFERS, THE MOREL MIDRANGE 2 1/8 IN DOME AND THE BESTON RIBBON TWEETER WOULD MAKE A STUNNING CENTER CHANNEL, TWEEK IT A BIT WITH SOME RESISTORS , A SINE WAVE GENERATOR , SOME OSC WORK AND YOU GOT A STATE OF ART TRANSDUCER,let me know how this comes out..

Iron core chokes used as shunts?

It would appear that the air core chokes on this x-over are the low pass filter and the iron core chokes are the parallel shunts. Can anyone verify this? It seemed to me that if I were building customs, I would take this approach as a cost savings thinking that the characteristics of the shunt are far less important than the filter itself.
Asked by: Petri
The iron core coil on the left is a dual winding coil for the woofer with a jumper to select the proper winding for the 4 or 8 ohm woofer. The air core coil in the middle is for the tweeter section. The two coils on the right are for the upper and lower crossover points of the midrange.
