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

Did I purchase the correct Crossover for my application? Or would you recommend something different? (see additional details)
I bought this Xover for my front and surround pairs for my Home Theater. They are intended to work with the following speakers in each of the 4 seperate cabinet boxes: a "Dayton Audio DS270-8 10" Designer Series Woofer" (part# 295-432) for the bass woofer, a "Aurum Cantus AC120/50CK 5" Midwoofer" (part# 296-440) for the mids, and a "Dayton Audio PT2C-8 Planar Tweeter" (part# 275-085) . The woofers (12" & 5") have their own chambers. The boxes/cabinets are all sealed enclosures with 1.28cuft of air space for the 12" woofer enclosure, and 0.25cuft of air space for the 5" midwoofer enclosure. What is the best Crossover application? Is it this "Dayton Audio XO3W-700/5.6K 3-Way Speaker Crossover 700/5,600 Hz", or would you recommend something different or custom?
the tweeter and midrange will out run the woofer so put a l-pad on the tweeter and mid section then tune the speakers to your taste,,, if you don't want the controls on the back of your cabinets,,read the l-pads values when sweet setting is found ,then put a non inductive resistor of close value on the speaker terminal of tweeter/mid and do final assembly

What impedance will it be overall if there are 2 x 8 ohm woofers?
If I use an 8 ohm tweeter, 8 ohm mid, and two 8 ohm woofers, what would be the overall impedance? Would it be 8 ohms, 4 ohms, or something in-between? If in-between, is there a simple way to calculate it? Thanks for your help.
The load your amplifier will see will be 4 ohms.

3 way speaker has 1k spike in mids
Using this xover, I have a loud mid-range spike. When I hooked up my 10 band eq and turned down the 1k slider, the speakers sounded more normal. Do I notch the mid driver or tweeter and/or use an L-pad? Sounds like it's coming from the mids.Am I miss-matching drivers here? Is there a better Mid driver for this rig?Thanks,
crossovers LC have ringing in the coils and lead lag time in the caps, the amp damps this some and the natural roll of the drivers furthur confuses the poor audio wave into where and how much to filter and flow so the mids seem hot a simple 2, 4, or 10 ohm non inductive resistor could solve your hot mid's it did mine,,, with 2 in al dayton domes,beston ribbons outrunning the mid bass[usher 8in] the addition of f-mod 100 hz in line filters tamed the mid bass also ... then the media eq or an inline eq would sweeten the response,, rule of thumb the more electronic the wave modification is the cleaner also you have too much voice not enough bass, two tens match the mid capability of that 6.5 peerless and dome tweet or go with 3 in midrange with 8 in woofer and you like it better.
