Dayton Audio XO3W-700/5.6K 3-Way Speaker Crossover 700/5,600 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 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".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great when I got them installedFirst would love to compliment the customer service at Parts Express. I ordered a previous set of crossovers that didn't have the points that I was looking for, miscalculation on my part, emailed customer service and got a response same day and was able to return those in exchange for these. Price was a little different but as soon as they received them I got both an email and a phone call from customer service asking for a little more info for the difference in the price. These crossovers were sent out next day. Great customer service.Now for the review of the crossovers. They are great, heavy duty and mounted easy to the inside back of my boxes. Sound coming out is great and has the voice coming right out of the mid range as I had planned.But the speakers were still a bit tinny, I have 12" woofers that have a dual 4 ohm voice coil, when I put these together I wired them for 8 ohms each speaker and had the cross over set for the same. Upon hearing this and still having to adjust the EQ I used the feature of the 4 ohm or 8 ohm on the crossover and switched it to the 4 ohm as well as the woofer. Now I have speakers that require a practically flat EQ which is perfect for all the different types of music that I listen to. Great feature to have in these crossovers and they are built for the wattage.Setup -Hafler SE 100 preampRockford Fosgate (RF) 2000 amp in stereo mode12" RF Punch dual voice coil6.5" sealed back midrange bought on Parts Express.com2x5 tweeter horn

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good Prefabbed Crossover OptionI especially like the 4-ohm/8-ohm option on this crossover as it allows for more flexibility in using the crossover on various options. The build quality is great, althought the components aren't the best available, they are great value components and perform WAY above the crossovers included in most speaker manufacturers' mainstream speakers (JBL/Infinity/Klipsch/etc). If you're new to the speaker building world, and don't have the desire to design and fabricate your own crossovers, these work great! Very detailed, open, and the soundstage is deep and wide. I'm sure you could get better results with Janzen and others, but not at the same price with the same flexibility. Highly recommended product. I'm using these with Aurum Cantus AC-180F1, AC-130F1, and Dayton PT2C-8.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from satisfiedNovice here. Used this Xover with woofer = Dayton 8-ohm shielded Rs180, midrange = Dayton dome Sr52, and tweeter = BG ribbon Neo3Pdr. Added an 8-ohm "L-pad" resistor to the Sr52 and a 4-ohm "L-pad" resistor to the Neo3Pdr. (By the way, in Xover3pro, the phasing did not look bad to me. It did appear that a filter would be nice to attenuate the Sr52's resonance at 450 Hz .)Bottom line: this pair of 3-ways is up and running with very little sautering, finger-burning, and swearing, and they sound nice to, again, this novice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If it only had 4 ohm option for midrange, too. :)Still, for a premade crossover, it's entirely effective. It does what it has to, and doesn't mess up. I picked very tame drivers, so I have no idea how it would work with a wild impedence in the driver, but I don't like that kind of designs, anyhow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great CrossoversI have these hooked up to a Dayton reference dome midrange, morel mdt-20 tweeter, and 15" jbl woofer. They sound great, and easily handle the 300W of advertised power.

As my first speaker project, I'm using an old Fisher 3 way box(sealed) with these drivers, DC28FT-8, DS115-8 4", RS225-8 8". Will this X-over work well?

Asked by: iomoth
Yes that crossover will work with those drivers. I would recommend isolating the midrange from the rest of the cabinet with its own chamber filled with damping.

I'd like to use this x-over for Woofer; Eminence Delta-12LFA 12" Low Frequency Driver,  Mid; Selenium D250-X GW Phenolic Horn Driver  and  Twitter: Selenium D220Ti. Is this right x-over for these drivers?  Do you think I need L-pad?   

Asked by: Gusto Doe
The crossover frequencies will work well, but yes you will probably need L-pads for the mids and horns.

I'm building a 3-way home speaker with Cerwin Vega CVMP1.0 tweeters, CV CVMP6.5 and CV CVMP8.0. Will this be a good match? Thank you

Asked by: Elroy78
We do not have any specifications for these drivers available, so we cannot say whether it would be a good match or not. If you can find specific product specs for those drivers and email our tech support we can see if we can help further.

building a big three way speaker system. Will this crossover work with these drivers. 21'' woofer 8ohms  25hz~2.5khz 99db 10'' Midrange 8ohms 300hz~4000khz 99.6db Compression horn tweeter 500hz~20000khz 103db

Asked by: confusing
This crossover will work fine with that application. You may need an L-pad on the tweeter since it is slightly more sensitive. I would recommend part number 260-252 for this.

would this work for a sound bar Wmtm/mtmW?

I am going to be building a speaker for my garage. I am a complete novice. I want to build a sound bar type speaker with two 6" woofers, four 3" mids and two tweeters. Will the products listed below work well together. I dont need an audiophile speaker just good sound and good bass.
Asked by: sanch510
In order for that crossover to work properly it needs to have an 8 ohm load on the mids and tweeters and a 4 or 8 ohm load on the woofers. Are you planning on using only one crossover for the whole speaker bar?

Could I use this with a 6 ohm woofer?

I have a pair of BIC RtR 1530 15" 3-Way Tower Speakers. I would like to take out the existing crossover and replace it with this. The woofer is 6 ohm. Would this be a problem?
Asked by: J.J.S.
A 6 ohm woofer will slightly change the crossover point but probably not enough to be audible. As long as your amplifier can handle a 6 ohm load you will not have any ill affects.
