Dayton Audio XO3W-625/5K 3-Way Speaker Crossover 625/5,000 Hz
I'm looking to put together a two or 3 way system in my car and want to build the component system myself. I've always just but a component system and installed. These crossovers say they're "rated for an 8 ohm load"... I don't know many speakers that are 8 ohm loads for tweets and midranges. I've been looking on this site and I see mids and tweets rated at 4 ohms and subs from 4 to 2 ohm.Can I use this crossover with woofer/mid/tweet at 4ohm/4ohm/4ohm?
No simple answer, It could work, but odds are it would not!

How do I add another woofer?
I need to have a wire diagram for the wiring of two woofers to this crossover? Each woofer is 4 ohms and 125 watts. I did see diagram for using 4 woofers ,but I am going to only use two woofers per crossover. I've heard using 2 is different from using 4. Thanks you very much.
Our Dayton crossovers are designed to operate with a 4 ohm or 8 ohm load on the woofer section. Using two 4 ohm woofers, the only option to maintain a manageable impedance would be series wiring, which would keep your impedance at 8 ohms. I've attached a diagram below for your convenience.

When using an 4 ohm woofer with this crossover what is the impedence of the assembled speaker with all the drivers (8ohm mid/ tweet)? 4 ohms or 8 ohms
The overall speaker impedance will be 4 ohm.

What is the design of the crossover?
Is this one of your normal LR types or is it a Butterworth or what?Thanks
1st off there can be Butterworth crossovers of orders out to 7th or 8th, I have seen them.But why is it that I ask this and get a pat answer of an, LR crossover and now the staff states that it is a Bessel crossover.Sorry for the confusion, but this does matter, as the sound will always tell the difference.

Can anyone give me the formulas for designing a 3 way 2nd order Linkwitz-Riley crossover?

on the adding of another woofer?
Russ thanks for the photo of how to correctly add another woofer. do I still choose 4 ohm plug on crossover and not 8 ohm? since my woofers are 4 Ohm. thanks
Wiring two 4 ohm woofers in series presents an 8 ohm load, so you would set the jumper on the crossover to the 8 ohm setting.
