PRV Audio 2DF2k 2-Way Passive Speaker Crossover 2 kHz
With the price of this unit not being terribly high, I am wondering if the speakon connectors are high quality, or if I will have to replace them not too far down the road? I know the cheaper (Chinese) connectors will not stand up to regular use.....
Unfortunately there is no way to gauge the quality of the speakons used in this crossover. We have not have a single issue or complaint about them but they are replaceable with any standard Neutrik or Amphenol part.

what is the actual size of the crossover I want to make sure that it will fit in the hole (I don't mind having to cut out more but filling in would be a pain
Overall dimensions: 5.2" W x 7.1" H x 3.75" D, Cutout: 3.9" W x 5.9" H.

I got two questions. 1. Which is the maximum power handling? 2. Can you hook up 1 midbass woofer and 1 midrange woofer crossed by 2 kHz.? ( no horn/tweeter)
Maximum power is not listed by the manufacturer. Yes you can use this for a mid-bass and midrange.

I noticed this crossover doesn't use a bulb fuse for the HF Driver. Why do some crossovers have them and others don't?
Whether the crossover has a bulb fuse or not is entirely up to the manufacturer.

Where do the wires go?
The crossover has two pairs of wires - red & white, and yellow & white. Which goes to the 15" speaker, and which to the horn? Product did not include a wiring diagram or documentation.
There is a wiring diagram available in the spec sheet available on the product page and in the link below.HF Driver: White wire (-), Yellow wire (+)LF Driver: White wire (-), Red wire (+)http://www.parts-express.com/pedocs/specs/294-2860-prv-audio-2df2k-specifications.pdf

What resistance will the amplifier see if I wire a DVC (8 ohm per coil in parallel) woofer and a SVC 8 ohm tweeter to this? (i.e. 4 ohms on the woofer, 8 ohms on the tweeter)How about if I wire the woofer's voice coils in series for 16 ohms on the woofer and 8 ohms on the tweeter?Will these configurations make any difference in the system's frequency response? In other words, will wiring the woofer to 4 ohms sounds 'boomier' than wiring it to 16 ohms?
The drivers are kept separate by the crossover so the amplifier only sees one section at a time. For example a two way speaker using one 8 ohm woofer and one 8 ohm tweeter still has a nominal impedance of 8 ohms across the frequency range.The wiring will not have any effect on frequency response, just the load on the amplifier and the power delivered.
