B&C 6PEV13 6-1/2" Midrange Speaker
B&C 6PEV13 6-1/2" Midrange Speaker is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow...With some cab mods, I'm using these in my old JBL 4625B's. Crossed over (bi-amp) at 240 and 4.5k (Dayton passive). Very nice improvement in mid clarity, dispersion, and response. Loud enough to drive me out of a 20 x 20 room, and so far seem to be more than durable enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Driver!I got this mid-range driver as a replacement driver for my new 3 way Carvin LM153 Speakers. The original driver was smoked the first day out. I talked to a part-express tech. and he recommended this driver as a replacement since I use this enclosure for my main vocals with high SPL levels. The driver fit although is was a lot deeper and heavier than the original. The next gig I had to do was a larger concert and this driver fit the bill!! It performed far better than the original driver, smooth and accurate. I would have paid twice the money for a speaker that performed this well!! I got more than I paid for thanks to part-express's awesome prices!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loud midrange driverI used a pair of these in a high output center channel for my home theater. I hate not being able to hear dialogue well in movies, so I decided to build my own center to remedy it. These with a eminence apt-200 horn did exactly what I wanted. This driver is real intelligible and clear till around 4500 hz where it gets a little harsh to me. I used a dayton 2 way crossover @ 3500 hz. Perfect sound comes from my center now. I did have to turn the center channel down to -2 instead of +4.The end result sounds better than most professionally made home theater centers. I might make a complete 7 piece set of these, just adding an 8" woofer ane 3 way x-over in the front ones.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Detailed SoundVery clear and transparent from 200-5000 hzeven at high volume. This is an audiophile's pro sound speaker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for high efficency home audio tooI am using this as a midrange in an active 3way dipole (500k - 5khz). Needs some eq to get rid of peak around 4k. Extremely low distortion, high efficiency and immense power handling. Transients are scary - snare, kick drum overtones are realistic. The first version of my 3 way, I was driving these with an 8 watt Tripath amp. They are so efficient that I didn't feel more power was needed. If you are an adventurous DIY builder of home speakers, especially if you are using active XO, I would give this a close look.

will a 6 1/2 foam repair kit that y'all sale will fit these speakers

Asked by: lorenzo863
The foam surround kit will fit this driver, although the half roll style surround will change the characteristics of the driver parameters and response profile.

Is the phase plug able to be unscrewed?

Asked by: Billyray
It does not appear that the phase plug is removable although you can probably get a better answer from B&C directly.

i want to replace door speakers with Lanzar OPTI6PM 6.5" OptiDrive 400 Watt High Performance Midbass Speaker or B&C 6PEV13 6-1/2"  without a crossover or tweeter. Any suggested caps I can add to make these strictly a midrange ?

Asked by: Anonymous
An 80 uF cap will create a first order high pass at 500 Hz.If you double this value, the crossover frequency will be cut in half, if you halve the cap value the crossover frequency will double.

Given the high efficiency, has anyone used this horn with a low power tube amplifier, 10-20W?

I've been looking at several drivers in the pro category for a monaural speaker setup for a 10-20W tube amplifier. Has anyone used this driver in that application? Given the high sensitivity and relatively low RMS power for this driver, it appears that this may be a good match for low power tube applications.
Asked by: ARoethlisberger
The 6PEV13 is an excellent high efficiency midrange driver. When I first purchased mine, I was struck by its exceptionally lifelike midrange sound.To answer your question - yes, it would be a good driver for a low power tube amp, but a high fs and low xmax prevent it from being useful below 350-400 hz. I recommend for best sound quality using it in a 3 way system with a woofer below 400hz and a tweeter above 5000hz. This is not a full range driver.
