Aurum Cantus AC-180F1D 7" DVC Woofer
Aurum Cantus AC-180F1D 7" DVC Woofer is rated 3.875 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feb Help from the PE GuysI had a complex problem and needed to find a 16ohm bass unit to "rescue" some ProAc speakers - and no one could help me. I then found PE. The guys then helped me source this unit, which can be wired up to act like its 16 ohm. Ordered two units, and they arrived 1/2 way round the world in about 5 days! Amazing! Thank speakers are now better then new! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great midbass in car!I have these in the front doors as part of a active 2-way with 200W each. Solid midbass and blend well at 2.5K with a seas alum neo. They are better than i expected, sound and visually. They get loud and still sound great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 2002 Jeep WranglerThis product will not work with a 2002 Jeep Wrangle. It's overall width is to wide for the opening in the subwoofer plastic case. A 6 1/2 inch speaker will fit with making a small foam casket . The 6 1/2 inch Dual Coil speakers depth may require removing some of the plastic it bangs against when dropped into the casing check your measurements twice. Cut once.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dual Voic Coils / Jeep WranglerI own a Jeep Wrangler. The original subwoofer finally gave out, and the only speaker that I could find was this Aurum Cantus AC-180F1D 7" DVC Woofer. It's 1/2" larger than the original, but a little silicone took care of the problem, and needed to shim the front cover away from the speaker so the speaker would have clearence for speaker flex. The woofer sounds great. It was a good replacement, for a good value.

Aurum Cantus AC-180F1D 7" DVC Woofer

Hi, If I buy this subwoofer and the  Tymphany XT25BG60-04 Which 2 ways crossover will sound better ? 1600 hz or 3500 cross ? Thank you.   Tymphany XT25BG60-04

Asked by: Michael22
That tweeter will not handle a crossover as low as 1,600 Hz. A 2,500 Hz crossover would actually be the best option for this combination.

Using as sub/mid in car doors with the Pioneer Stage 4 TS-S062PRS mids (on axis on the dash) in a simple 2-way active with no tweeter, would the the Cantus crossed b/w 400-800Hz work here. Would imaging suffer?  Bandpass is also available. Thanks.

Can this sub be used sealed and if so what size?

Asked by: bigfishe
If you click on the SPEAKER BUILDER tab and then WOOFER SELECTION GUIDE in the right column - you can see these specs for many drivers which helps you in making your decisions. For the AC-180F1D a .66 cu ft enclosure yields an F3 of 72hz - making it a perfect mid-woofer for LCR home theater or mini-monitors crossed over to a subwoofer. In a ported cabinet - you need 2 cubic feet for an F3 of 38hz - which is right at the drivers Fs so there would be some performance and amp/impedance issues... This driver will perform best in a sealed enclosure.

Can this dual voice coil "4-ohm" driver be configured as an 8 ohm driver?

I would like use the stated "dual voice coil design allows unique crossover options" capabilities to transform the driver in to a 8 ohms so i can us it, along with complimentary 8 ohm drivers, in a three-way speaker.Or do they have a 8 ohm vesion with similar low frequency response.ThanksPatrick
Asked by: Anonymous
This driver has two 8-ohm voice coils, so what you could do is hook up just one of the voice coils, and that will give you an 8 ohm load. All DVC woofers can be connected in one of three configurations with no ill effects at all: parallel, series, and running just one voice-coil. In the case of this woofer, those configurations would give impedances of 4, 16, and 8 ohms, respectively. Note, however, that if you run just one of the voice coils, then the power handling of the woofer will be approximately 60% of the rated value. In this case, it would be about 60W RMS / 85W max. This is because there is half as much voice coil wiring to dissipate the power.There is some debate about whether or not a DVC woofer can be run with just one voice coil attached, but I can assure you, as an electronics engineer and experienced hi-fi enthusiast, that doing so is just fine. The only issue is the reduced power handling.Alternately, there are 3 other Aurum Cantus 7" 8 ohm woofers over in the "7 inch woofer" category here on Parts Express. They have fairly similar specs, esp the AC-180F1, which is the single voice-coil version of this AC-180F1D.
