This is a long shot but I’m trying to do a favour for a pal and repair his old Peavey crossover. 
I need to find the spec for this Thermistor.

Perhaps more likey to be a Polyfuse rather than a thermistor? A thermistor that small wouldn't really have a place in a high powered crossover circuit, whereas a 1 amp Polyfuse is about that size and would offer useful protection to the HF driver, if it's in series?

Yeah you're right I don't think it's Thermistor now either.
I was wondering if it's a Ceramic Capacitor.

Again, at that size, it could only be a few hundred pF at most - so not gonna be doing much filtering in a low-impedance circuit....
I also see what looks like a dry joint at the bottom centre of the board (dark ring all the way around the component leg)
If you can sketch out a schematic, and the mystery component is indeed in series with the HF and in parallel with that light bulb, then it's a classic Polyfuse protection circuit. When the Pfuse opens, all the current has to flow through the bulb, which will drop the excess power, and then blow itself if you're really silly or your amp is oscillating. In which case, I would try replacing with a 500mA Pfuse and see if that works.

Yeah this is a polyfuse. I’ve replaced a few on a number of Peavey Hisys crossovers. Typically have used a 250mA and actually still have a few left. The part number on the pack is 647-8443 (RS components part number).

I thought it was RXE035 but poster that says RXE030 may be right. I always thought the value was too low. It must latch and send the power to the bulb as soon as You crank it up. 030 will trip/latch at .60 amps. Any other ideas??
