Product Details

Celestion Neodymium 5" Full-Range Woofer 4 Ohm

This 5" full range OEM driver from Celestion was designed in Great Britain for use in high-end, lightweight acoustic instrument speakers. A neodymium motor not only makes this speaker light, but it also reduces distortion by focusing all of magnetic power into the gap and onto the voice coil for complete control.

The neo motor also features a bumped backplate for reduced voice coil "bottoming out" conditions, while a paper cone is mated to a cloth accordion surround for a natural, warm midrange tone. This speaker is also nice to look at due to its rounded stamped-steel frame without requiring a recess in the baffle. 

Flat frequency response from 200 Hz to 6,000 Hz, and useful to 9,000 Hz, this driver is well suited for use in HiFi home audio systems, the reduced mounting depth is useful in car and mobile audio systems, and output is high enough (89 dB 1W/1m) for professional audio applications as a midrange in three-way systems or a full range column driver for line arrays. Available in 4 and 8 ohm versions to cover a wide array of applications, including building your own personal monitor speaker. Factory buyout with limited quantities! Save more than 50% off similar drivers!

Note: For even greater maximum power handling, a 330 µF capacitor for a 1st order crossover point of roughly 125 Hz is recommended.

Celestion Neodymium 5" Full-Range Woofer 4 Ohm
Celestion Neodymium 5" Full-Range Woofer 4 Ohm is rated 4.7059 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Crossover PossibilityActually Part number 269-011 Panasonic crossover/terminal plate would work well with just a slight mod to the 100uF cap. Just add another 200uF and you have what you need to protect the low end of this driver while connecting an 8 ohm tweeter would roll on at 5700ish! $10 mid plus .99 buyout tweet, and the under $3 XO just leaves the box !

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the price....Built 2 mini guitar practice amps and they did the job well. The low sensitivity shows in output yet the driver handled its own down to roughly 100-150hz at which point I would not hesitate to crossover at 125hz. The impedance was perfect for series wiring and the build quality seems fair enough to be tossed around a bit. THEY ARE NOT INDESTRUCTIBLE SO PLEASE DONT GO THROWING THEM TO FIND OUT LOL...Very light weight construction and for the practice amp didn't have horrible 30-50 degree response. As for tone, I would definitely use this driver again for a compact and light weight practice amp again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than ExpectedI bought a pair of these and some clearance tweeters for use in a Cornu's Spiral horn setup. (Yes, I'm aware that a 2-way design is neither typical nor optimal for a Cornu's Spiral setup). The setup is very efficient. My Lepai LP-2020A has more than enough power to get them up to uncomfortably loud volumes. The spiral horn gives them a surprising amount of bass extension; almost enough to eliminate the need for a subwoofer for many genres of music. Sound is pleasantly warm and airy, though bits of distortion become more obvious at higher volume levels. Overall, I'd describe the sound as 'vintage.'Considering the bill of materials for the project (thin plywood, foamcore, clearance drivers, and some spare parts), I'd say these are the best bang for the buck speakers I've built.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful driver for amateur radio speakerI used this driver to build a 4 ohm amateur radio speaker in a roughly 3 liter cabinet. If your transceiver is capable of driving 4 ohms, this driver will provide plenty of volume with smooth sounding and full bodied voice. Excellent quality for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deal of the yearI installed these in my Tahoe last week. They are accompanied by a Soundstream Lil Wonder (the original version) & a pair of ADS tweeters (from back when they were still ADS). They're on a 2nd order high-pass at 125Hz & running open up top. The tweeters are crossed at 12k 1st order. Eventually I'll build proper crossovers for them, but for now, they sound great. There's a small bit of hash in the upper registers, but nothing I can't live with. They're much clearer than the Boston Pro mids I replaced, which couldn't accurately reproduce anything above 1.5k. I have a basic, front stage only, time aligned setup & everyone who's heard it has been blown away. The 25w power rating seems accurate, so select your amplification accordingly. They're certainly not as clear as my JM Labs home speakers, but that would be an unfair comparison. The mids they replaced used to retail around $400pr, so I would say they perform well above their price point, even if they hadn't been on sale. Buy em while you can.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speaker, great priceI bought these speakers roughly six months ago, along with some closeout 8 ohm tweeters and some crossover components - I noticed there's a huge peak in the 5k-10k area, so I crossed them over at 5k, using a 1st order highpass for the tweet, and a 2nd order for this celestion. I made some bookshelf speakers with them using some scrap 1/2" particle board and some foam leftover from a household furniture project. The box used roughly their recommended box size and tuning - I settled with roughly 329.5 cubic inches, and 89hz tuning or so, using some 1+1/8" PVC pipe (internal diameter) to make the port. The box ended up being 8" tall by 8" wide by 8 5/16" deep. I'm using them with a Lepai LP-2020A+ 20w/channel amp. With the relatively low volumes these bedroom/computer/bookshelf speakers were made for, this setup has plenty of bass, good treble, and nice, clear midrange. I don't really have the time or energy to draw up any plans, but I pretty-much explained everything that I did, aside from setting the baffle inside the cabinet by 1/4". In order to make the tweeters fit, I had to cut them down into a triangular shape. Anyways, I really like these, and they can get pretty loud - the only thing is that the bass on them doesn't carry when they go loud, but that's perfectly fine by me. Part of me wants to get another few pairs so I can do the exact same thing for work, and for the garage!

Celestion Neodymium 5" Full-Range Woofer 4 Ohm

Good Day. What would apprx. RMS watts be with a 1st order/6 db passive crossover at 200 hz? Thanks

Asked by: Cotrone
The wattage will be no different regardless of crossover applied. The output capabilities will increase however, since the driver will not be limited mechanically or draw as much current trying to playing low frequencies.

Can you give me info on how to repair m audio bx8a monitors? The woofers and tweeters appear fine, I want to match and price the internal components. 

Asked by: Melwill
We do not have any specific information for these monitors. You will have to contact M Audio directly for help with factory replacement parts and/or values.

Will these work as replacements in Galaxy Audio's "Hot Spots", own 32 of these and regularly use 17 

Asked by: Mark theater sound man
These will not work as a drop in replacement for the Galaxy drivers, the bolt circle on this Celestion is about 3/4" larger.

can i use this with a peerless 839878 passive radiator, in a small enclosure like 8x6x3 inch. how low will it go.  else, with a PR wat wud u suggest shud be the smallest possible enclosure

Asked by: arjunm009
I would not recommend this with a passive radiator. This driver will only provide output down to about 100 Hz which can be achieved in a standard ported enclosure. The dimensions you provided are on the small side, but with a 1" diameter, 2" long port you will have a tuning frequency of 100 Hz.
Answered by: MattP
Date published: 2014-09-23

I have two of these in a vented .25 cubic foot (70 Hz) enclosure powered by a DTA-2 amp. The enclosure is metal and lined with 1" thick rigid fiberglass to reduce reflections. While the treble is great I have noticed it lacks bass- suggestions?

Asked by: cmro327
Unfortunately these drivers will not produce much low end. The volume you have is on the small side for a pair of these so a 70 Hz tune might be a little too low. I would recommend a shorter port to raise the tuning, which will give you the perception of more bass which is what most manufacturers will do to "cheat" the sound. A tuning frequency around 85 Hz will probably be a little better for punch but these won't play much below about 70.
