Visaton SC5-8 Shielded 1/2" Polycarbonate Tweeter 8 Ohm
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.
