Dayton Audio XO3W-700/5.6K 3-Way Speaker Crossover 700/5,600 Hz
I want to use this crossover for my BMW. It has weird loads tweeter 4ohm midrange 2 ohm and midbass 3 ohm. Would this crossover work? Due to the odd ohm loads.
The midrange and high-pass sections are rated for an 8 ohm load only. The low-pass section allows for the use of 4 or 8 ohm woofers. This crossover would not work for your application. You could reach out to BMW for a replacement part, or build a custom crossover for that application.

I am using this crossover in a pair of 3 way Jensen speakers. I am adding a L-Pad attenuator, and need to know how to wire in the crossover, and L- with the tweeters I am using. They are piezo, and they are wired in parallel. Thanks in advance! PE rocks!
If I have an amp that does 100 watts rms (100rms @4ohm - 100rms @1.5ohm) how many watts will each speaker get? (4ohm woofer, 8ohm midrange, 8ohm tweeter)
There are no direct formulas for calculating this. We usually state that a woofer will get 70-80% of the power, a mid will get 15-20% and the tweeter will get 5-10% in a three way system.

Im using 4 of these crossoveres in my camaro with 8ohm selenium super tweeters, 8ohm midrange neo pro sundown 6.5s and tangband 8" woofer 4ohms. Looking for a new amp that would push the 300 rms. Is the 300rms rating on the crossover for 8ohms?
Yes that rating is at 8 ohms.

I'm rebuilding a pair of Infinity SM 120s.They are all the original drivers. Will this crossover work as a replacement for the original as the tweeters keep burning out and no response from the dial pads. Can I use the Morel Cat 298s as replacement tweets
The crossover will likely "work", but it probably will not deliver the same performance as the original crossover and drivers in your SM 120 speakers. The Morel CAT298 tweeter might also "work" as a replacement, but it will probably not deliver the same performance as the original drivers. The only way to ensure you will restore your speakers to their original level of performance is to obtain direct replacements for the drivers and crossover.
