Visaton SC5-8 Shielded 1/2" Polycarbonate Tweeter 8 Ohm
How would I limit the frequency below 5K but still keep it at 8ohms?
I would recommend a simple high pass filter like below.http://www.parts-express.com/5-khz-high-pass-8-ohm-crossover--266-474

could this be crossed over at about 3250hz and still sound good? (i was planning to use two part 299-609's with this tweeter)
I would not recommend crossing this over any lower than 4kHz due to the resonant frequency of the tweeter itself.

How far apart are the screw holes? I am looking for tweeters with 4 holes 2" apart. Does PE carry anything like this?
The screw holes on this tweeter are 2.3" on center. The spec sheets are located under the Manuals and Resources part of the product page, to the right of the Product Details.

Good for a three way ?
Let's see if I have learned much about speakers. This looks like a good choice for my older ears with reduced high frequency sensitivity. Maybe good to cross at 8 to 10k when the cone type mid covers 800 to 8k or maybe 10k at the top ? And the bass < 800hz ? Cost effective too. I have a set of polycarbonate tweets on Sony B1000's and they are soooo nice and clear. So poly is a good tweeter. Aging of the plastic is my concern, but at $10 each OMG what a gamble.
These will indeed work fine for a three way design crossed that high. I would not worry about the plastic aging, as long as these are not abused they should last you forever.

Hi, similar question to the other guy, how would I lower the output of these by 6dB while keeping the impedance at 8 Ohms? Also what wattage resistors are supposed to be used?
I would recommend a 2.7 ohm resistor in series and a 5.6 ohm resistor in parallel. 10 watt will be enough power for this.

How to lower level
This may go under another product, but how would I go about lowering the level of this driver.I'd like to attenuate the volume of this driver by about 8 decibels, while maintaining at 8 Ohms. Any suggestions?
A 3.3 ohm resistor in series and a 3.6 ohm resistor in parallel will attenuate the output by 8 dB.
