Speaker Crossover 3-Way 8 Ohm 800/4,500 Hz 200W
I have a 4 ohm midrande that I want to use in a three way system with 8 ohm woffers and tweeter...how do I raise the impedence ? resister? etc
How do I wire it I will use the Dayton x-over Dayton Audio XO3W-500/4K 3-Way Crossover 500/4,000 Hz
well....your well read enough to realize that you loads need to match the cross-overs design parameters or it will hideously shift the cross point....so i am assuming i don't need to go into a lengthy discussion on matching resultant end driver levels, and that you've already done the math there...so yeah, if your hart is set on that mid, a 4ohm series resistor of the same wattage as the driver would do the trick...its a bit of energy down tubes as heat, but it's really your only option other than going with a different driver....but then if your 4ohm mid can keep up with the minus 3db resistor, it's obviously more efficient that a suitable 8ohm, as so makes up for the loss...so yeah...rulg

What is the RMS and Max power rating for this unit?
Crossover is rated for 200 watts RMS (continous) and 400 watts peak (assuming it's clean power and not distortion). This crossover should be more than adequate for everything except extremely high power PA / Pro use. Enjoy.

how do you wire it?
The - side of all woofers, tweeters, and terminals should be attached to "common", the + side should be connected to the input... The + side of each driver should be connected to the W and T depending on whether it's a woof or a tweet. -- these really should come with 1-page manuals, I was a bit in the dark when I installed my Dayton brand crossovers...

Do these come in pairs or is it just a single for the advertised price?
This crossover is sold individually.

phase reversal of mids
The 12db slopes seem to be "second order" designs, so, I'm wondering about the usual advice to reverse the polarity of the mids - is it built reversed or does the user choose to reverse the polarity by wiring it "wrong"?
These crossovers are wired with the midrange polarity "in-phase" with the rest of the drivers. Whether it needs to be reversed is determined by the acoustic slopes and phase of the drivers in use. The best way to determine whether it needs to be in phase or not is to try it both ways. If they are out of phase, there will be a noticable dip in the upper mid-bass and upper midrange and may sound a little hollow.

Can I use Beston RT002A Ribbon Tweeter w/this crossover?
I need advise for building a pair of loud speakers w/these crossover pleaseI have bought these crossover to use for loud music with my pre-amplifier has 300/Chanel. I've bought 4 GW-212/4 woofer (2/speaker in series of 8 ohm) I've tested and sounds really good but I'm confusing of pick out the tweeter and Mids
Yes the RT002A will work with this crossover.
