Product Details

6-1/2" Poly Cone Midbass Woofer 4 Ohm

This durable 6-1/2" poly cone woofer with rubber surround is designed to work best in small, sealed bookshelf-style cabinets. The damped poly cone creates smooth sound from 45 Hz all the way up to 3,000 Hz and is easy to integrate with many different tweeters, and the 4 ohm impedance extracts more current from an amplifier for twice the output (3 dB increase), when compared to a similar 8 ohm speaker.

A 1" voice coil is combined with an aluminum former for a power handling rating of 30 watts RMS and 60 watts max, and the "Q" of the motor is such that solid bass performance can be achieved in cabinets as small as 0.25 cubic feet, with an f3 of 63 Hz (with a 1/4 pound of acoustic fill).

Save over 50% off the original price through this exclusive factory buyout.

6-1/2" Poly Cone Midbass Woofer 4 Ohm
6-1/2" Poly Cone Midbass Woofer 4 Ohm is rated 4.525 out of 5 by 40.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well!I purchased 1 of these to replace one of the stock speakers in my Dayton B652 Bookshelf Speakers because one of the speakers has blown up (my fault, I put 50watts to it and one of the speakers blew, the other speaker sounds scratchy) The new speaker sounds great again with no distortion! I'll buy 3 more of these for backups but I'll use another one for the other bookshelf speaker since it sounds scratchy. I might even buy even more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Value!I purchased four of these for the purposes of experimentation. Along with them, I picked up some even more affordable GRS 1TM-4 Dome tweeters. I was doing demolition on a closet in our house, and in this closet was a custom shelving system made out of nice 3/4" ply. When I pulled it out, I immediately thought it would be fun to cut some of it up and make some snazzy bookshelf speakers out of it.For my first speaker build, I was really pleased with the result. I love the sound quality. You're not going to be rattling the picture frames off the walls with these, but some of the lower frequencies will be there and presented modestly in a good recording. I played some FLAC audio files through a vintage Kenwood amplifier, and I was very pleased.I completed the project just in time for the weekend and was able to use them on the back patio for my guests to plug up their phones and play their favorite tunes. Everyone that heard them had nothing but positive reviews of the speakers performance. I highly recommend these to someone who wants to experiment and have fun on a budget. I'll surely be getting more of these in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a deal - Repaired some Baby AdventsI have had a pair of Baby Advents awaiting refoaming for years. seeing these replacement woofers for $5, I figured why mess with the glue and all.I ordered them, installed them--they appear to be at least as good as what Advent used, sound very nice . . . . great bang for the buck.Being realistic, these aren't Klipschorns or AR LSTs, but neither were the Baby Advents . . . very happy with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very ImpressedI bought 8 of these speakers to build left and right towers. I wanted big and these delivered. The two towers are 4 feet tall each. Each tower has four woofers and two tweeters. We used 1/4 MDF and finished with the Acry-Tech DuraTex from Parts express. They look and sound great. I get a lot of compliments on the look and sound. The sub in the pic is a PSW10 Polk to show scale. I highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good value-second pairI first heard these speakers in the Dayton 625 bookshelf speakers. PE has them at a bargain price. This is the second pair. I plan to use these in a 3 way with a piezo horn or a 1" compression horn and a Fountec 3" extended range for the mid range. This midbass woofer gives a solid punchy, clear bass. I am tempted to buy a few more for future projects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awsome price point and soundHey first time poster here !I build speakers as a hobby , usually PE buy outs , I use gator clips to connect different configurations while testing to get the best sound , caps, resist , air inductors etc....Try L1 .01 mh in series , then C1 parallel then a 1.0 mh in series ,as a former Marine tone deaf but I can feel it .Brought some friend over who are more adept then me to music and and sound for price point they couldn't believe the sound . Very happy will be ordering more

6-1/2" Poly Cone Midbass Woofer 4 Ohm

Hi. I would like to use two of these drivers in an isobaric 4th order bandpass design. Are you able to help me with a suggested box design for this? Thank you. Also, I am unable to get cone excursion values when playing with it in WinISD. MMS? Thanks.

Asked by: AudyoVidyo
Four of these mounted push-pull will require a fairly large enclosure volume. The sealed box will need to be 2.9 cubic feet, the vented box will require 1 cubic foot with a 3" diameter, 3" long vent. This will provide a passband from 38 to 90 Hz. The drivers will handle full RMS power to just below 50 Hz before they run out of excursion.

boombox build. would this woofer work well with the GRS 1TM-4 Dome tweeter? what crossover would be best? would a 1-2" full range like the Dayton Audio CE Series CE32A-4 1-1/4" 4 Ohm work better as the highs and crossed over at 3000khz or so?

Could I use these with tweeters for my new surround system. I use a separate powered pair of subwoofers,so thinking these would work with two way crossovers.

Hi: I purchased four of these woofers with the goal of making two speakers running the drivers in series for 8 ohms. What is the best size of sealed cabinet for this application? Also it sounds like these will work well with a 2500Hz to 3000Hz crossover?

Asked by: flj1
You will want to use a 1.5 Ft3 box tuned to 56 Hz for two drivers wired in series. Yes, a cross over set at 2.5 to 3 KHz will work well.

Would 2 in series make it 8 ohm/60W RMS ? 1CuFt for sealed ? If I need a pair for clean Music(mostly acoustic/classical/pop/acapella/eastern styles of music). I do NOT plan to add Subwoofer. Any tips to get good coverage on the lows ?

Are these woofers candidates for a compound woofer set-up? I kinda feel like 1.5 cf box is too big for a small speaker. Now 0.75 cf in a compound speaker is acceptable. Especially since they are only $5 each. Any thoughts out there?

Asked by: irubik and iclone4 guy
This should work fine in a compound isobaric setup as long as you aren't looking for huge amounts of output. A pair of these compound loaded will only require 0.5 cubic feet and have an F3 of about 54 Hz.
