Anyone know what ohm each speaker is in the JL XR 3way? Thanks.

It is a 4ohm load. This took me 30 seconds to find out by looking on JL's website.

I think he's looking for individual impedances, possible for going active? If so, I have no idea either.

I wouldn't know each individual speaker impedance. I just scrolled through the pdf version of the manual for these speakers and it says nothing more in there either. I am guessing they would all be 4ohm as it says "system nominal impedance". I don't know if JL has much in 3ohm impedance other than their W7 subs.

I highly doubt all 3 speakers are going to be 4 ohm speakers.

Yes, I'm looking for the individual impedance of the drivers in the set. Not the final load of them all hooked up. I have these crossovers and my buddy would like to temp use them in his truck.

They will alll be 4 ohm speakers. The crossover is what makes them present a final 4 ohm load. It's not the same as just wiring speakers together.

The tweet is likely 6 ohm. Put a DMM on them and check for yourself. Impedance will be a little bit higher than the DCR.

The tweets in my old Eclipse set were 4 ohmers. Does it tend to differ with 3-ways, or were my Eclipses an anomaly?

Lol, if I had the speakers I would check myself. Thanks for the help everyone.

There are a ton of 4 ohm tweets out there but I have noticed 6 ohm to be a pretty common to match levels. Tweets tend to be a bit more efficient.

He is thinking of doing a Dayton reference 7", 5", and tang band 4ohm tweet with these crossovers till he goes active. I am a spl competitor so I can't be much help to him. What do you guys think?
