For what I understood, R80B and R82B are the same, the difference is that R80B can handle more power.
More or less. Fostex do not always provide a great deal of information about their products.

What about the R100T? It can attenuate less dBs, but more precisely? and have a transformer inside will provide a better sound quality?
It's the nominally high-end attenuator. Some prefer transformers to resistors; technically it should be a superior adjustable solution but whether that translates into superior real world performance is open to question. Given the significant extra cost and the fact that it's only operating on a supertweeter (where human hearing acuity isn't particularly good) I wouldn't bother myself.

FWIW, etc., IME such subtle improvements are lost on all but folks with either perfect pitch and/or at least have lived a life in low ambient noise areas. Had a relative that grew up in rural South Ga. visit me in the late '60s [Atlanta fringe near a freeway, malls, etc.] and his hearing was so keen he had to wear my wife's winter earmuffs after our Cocker Spaniel's toenails clicking on the kitchen's slate floor, quote: "drove ten penny nails through his head".

Blimey. Now that's definitely going to fall into the 'acute' category. I'm guessing he hadn't spent much time near Magnum V8s then?

Something like the basszilla is a proven design w FE208e∑ that adds woofers and tweeters.

A single R in series works, but the filter would need adjustment for each R change. The other solution is 2 Rs in series with one end of the Tweeter. This is just an L-Pad with fixed Rs — one of the ways to figure out what size Rs, is to use a variable L-Pad and when right, measure the Rs on each leg.

And too confuse you even more let me throw this out… a thot experiment i do not know if anyone has tried yet.

The topology applies to the drivers you plan to use.
