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 polypropylene 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.

hi i have an ev force i25 and need to replace the internal crossover.can you plz tell me which crossover is the crossover i need?

Asked by: willy
The EV Force i25 is a 2-way, four ohm design. If you have to replace the crossovers, I would recommend the Dayton crossover below. The power handling of the Dayton crossover is slightly lower due to their intended use being for home audio speakers. Unfortunately we don't have a Pro Audio crossover that will suit your needs.Make sure you use the four ohm setting on the crossover for the woofer section.

WOULD THIS CROSSOVER BE A GOOD FIT FOR TWO DAYTON RS180-4, MOREL CAM 528 AND A MOREL CAT 408?

Asked by: BIG AL GUERRANT
While this is a good crossover, you are choosing some really expensive drivers. You would be better suited to build a custom crossover with polypropelene caps and air coil inductors for an exact match. The performance would be notably better. You can find many crossover calculators online where you plug in the crossover points and driver impedances. It pops out a schematic and parts list...

Can i use a 5 ohm woofer with this crossover?

Asked by: Danielklut
Yes you can as long as the crossover jumper is set to 4 ohms. This will slightly change the crossover point but not enough to really cause a problem or be audible. Just make sure your amplifier can handle a load lower than 8 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,
Asked by: wadefx
This question is a little old but you may have found a solution to it already. If you are using a 8" woofer do you have dual voice coils or is it only one? If it is only one then I would try a "L" pad setup to turn down the mid and tweet. If you have a dual voice coil I would try going with just 4 ohms on the woofer and see how that changes the sound.

Different impedance tweeter?

If I were to use a 4Ω tweeter instead of an 8Ω tweeter, what would be the outcome? I'd rather not place a 4Ω power resistor in series with my tweeter as I don't want to attenuate the signal.
Asked by: Icantusemyrealname
Absolutely do not put a power resistor in line with the tweeter - it will sound awful. They are only used as dummy loads when testing amplifiers. If you use a different impedance tweeter you're changing the high crossover, but not the low - so you're going to have a hole in your response. Use a crossover calculator and design one that best fits your exact needs.
