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).

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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatly exceeded my expectationsI used 12 of these drivers per side in a 8' line array for my main 2 channel home system. Along with these no-name budget drivers, I used 9 Dayton PT2C-8 planar drivers per side. I expected them to do okay but after dialing in the system I was blown away. The little 6 1/2 inch drivers are crossed from 70Hz to 2800Hz and I have a pair of 15' drivers handling the non-directional bass (20Hz to 70Hz) located elsewhere in the room. Obviously, the little drivers are handling the majority of the bass content of my music and they do it cleanly, effortlessly and with authority. As others have mentioned, there are a few peaks but they are easily delt with using an active crossover/dsp. My line array is also an OB (Open Baffle) design which causes the bass to take a hit regardless of driver. I've found it not to be an issue as I am not lacking in any way for bass content and I am admittedly a bass lover.They also relay the midrange content with a consistent timber as the bass and again, do it effortlessly. I believe this is due to the combination of being a line array.....and Open Baffle....and because many small drivers are able to perform with little effort and subsequently little distortion.The PT2C-8 Planar tweeters integrate seamlessly with the 6 1/2" drivers but of course are a bit more instantaneous. I've added a bit of delay to the tweeters with my MiniDSP to time align all the drivers. I won't list all of the speakers I've owned over the years but the list is long from entry level to mid grade to high end speakers. I've found these to be well ahead of anything I've owned so far and couldn't be more pleased.Although it's said by many that you can't take a crummy driver and make it sound good by simply adding more. I believe with an active crossover/dsp you can make any driver sound better and a decent driver sound great. Adding more like in a line array simply gains you the benefits inherent in the design such as a cylindrical wave front and less db loss over a given distance. Make it OB and you've got a figure 8 cylindrical wave front if you like a dipole design.Thes 6 1/2" drivers if properly implimented, can yield excellent results and I highly recommend them for the do it yourself people, or as a possible replacement driver.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GoodBought 8 of these for an open baffle project, 4 low range drivers per channel. In the process of breaking them in as we speak. Have them series/parallel wired for a 4 ohm load, low cut-off is 60hz, and crossed at 200hz at the top end. That way, this handily avoids the 52hz resonant frequency, yet still provides a decent amount of bass content. So far, they are doing well. Hopefully they will open up a little as break-in progresses. Not quite the openness yet of the Visaton FR13 full ranger, but definitely more bass presence.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well Worth it!Bought 2 of these last week and installed them into my 2002 Dodge Ram front doors as components (with adapter plates). I already had Jensen JXR235 tweeters in the dash. These Midranges make a nice compliment to the overall sound...MUCH better than the cheap 6x9's I had in there. It was necessary to adjust my passive equalizer UP on the 60 and 150 Hz, as these are run thru an amp. Also adjusted the 400 Hz, 1 KHz, and 3 KHz DOWN to make a nice flat sound for these speakers. Works very well for rock, country, jazz, and classical. Don't know about electronica or hip-hop though. I highly recommend these for good sound. They aren't high end car speakers, but work great for the cost. Very satisfied customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good for a budget-conscious sealed speakerI've paired these inexpensive woofers with Visaton polycarbonate tweeters as a challenge to see how much can be achieved for little $$$, using a set of Baby Advent II cabinets. Mission accomplished, I'd say!They are performing extremely admirably as we watch an NFL television broadcast. Play-by-play announcing above crowd noise is robust and perfectly intelligible. Bass in this .33 cu ft, heavily stuffed sealed cabinet is absent of any rude, boomy peaks and extends lower than I had expected. Higher frequencies transition smoothly into the tweeter's range. Easily, money well spent.

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

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.

building a 2way speaker set up using these woofers wired in parallel with this tweeter Part # 279-002  is this going to be okay being that the woofer is 4ohm and the tweeter is 8ohm? 

Asked by: beasten25
Yes this will work fine, the impedance different will not effect anything. Make sure you have a crossover on the tweeter for protection.

Any point in considering these for open baffle? Fairly high Q, and efficiency. Thinking of stringing up to 4 of these for each channel -- target load being 4 ohms, band passing them around 60Hz, and high passing the full range driver at 200Hz.

Asked by: ibroke
These should work well open baffle, especially used in multiples and high passed at 60 Hz.

Sealed or Ported? Looking at building 4 speakers for about a 20'x30' room that will be in the corners of the shop. Would a ported or sealed configuration work better for this? All types of music, some is somewhat bass heavy like hip hop, techno, etc.

Asked by: xb2fergie
These woofers like a sealed enclosure, roughly 0.5 cubic feet each. Porting will give you a bloated bass sound and limit overall power handling.

9 of this speaker in sealed box final load of 4 ohms - shared air space - what should my cubic ft goal be to build to for strong response from 80hz and up ?  i hear shared enclosure of multiple woofer reacts diffrently than single ?

Asked by: brian84corvette
You will get the same extension with multiple woofers as you would with one, but your overall sensitivity will go up. The optimal volume for nine of these is almost 7 cubic feet, but if you are only interested in getting to about 80 Hz, you can cut this volume down significantly. Anything between 1.5 and 2 cubic feet will give you extension to 80 Hz, I would recommend heavy fill.
