Product Details

3-1/2" Shielded Paper Cone Midbass/Midrange Speaker 12 ohm

Looking for that perfect speaker to make a low-cost line array? Look no further! This shielded 3" paper cone midrange plays from 150 Hz all the way up to 15,000 Hz, and is built with a truncated frame for close center-to-center spacing and minimized comb filtering. Additionally, this driver performs equally well as a mini computer speaker and can be used as a satellite surround sound speaker. 

A Qts figure of 0.84 also makes this 3" paper cone midrange a perfect candidate for open back dipole speakers. The 12 ohm nominal impedance also makes it ideal for use in MTM configurations when wired in parallel for a 1W/1m sensitivity of over 90 dB! Shielded for protecting sensitive electronics.

Paper cone midranges were originally used in classic 3-way speakers and were known for their ability to reproduce vocals with warmth. Repair, upgrade, or build your own speakers today and save over 50% off the original retail price through this exclusive Parts Express buyout. Hurry, quantities are limited!
