Dayton Audio BR-1CAB BR-1 6-1/2" 2-Way Speaker Cabinet Pair
Dayton Audio BR-1CAB BR-1 6-1/2" 2-Way Speaker Cabinet Pair is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value- look very nice for the priceFor the price, these sound and look good. I have bought a pair of the higher priced hi-fi .50 cu ft enclosures- which are a bit more heavy duty and finished a little nicer. But very happy with these at the price point. Going to adjust the port length today for tuning- 38 hz is a little on the low side- but can always be shortened.Used 4.3 inch "rings" to mount my tweeter. Also widened out the driver mounting surface just a hair. Most of the grill mounts were broken- as others have noted- but customer service sent out new ones right away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boxes with small woofer holelight weight but well braced. Six hole is smaller than standard a standard cardboard speaker ring fits in the hole and one may mount a standard six on the surface.the shipping cartons are very soft and it is not likely they will stand reshipping which is sad. One came in with a broken grill as the box softened. I have bought about a dozen pairs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent cabinet and customer supportOrdered a pair. First pair arrived damaged, with all 8 grill studs broken. Sent it back to PE and a new pair was received. No hassle, no problems. Customer Service from PE is what a customer service should be.About the cabinet, excelen option. Well finished, good assembly, easy to use, correctly priced. PE should have other sizes / options like that. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easiest DIY speaker build possibleI couldn't help but try these cabinets for the price. I picked up a pair of PE's $10 Focal 6M115 6-1/2" Midbass Speakers & Tang band's 28-537SH tweeters. Coupled these with ERSE's .9mH perfect layer inductor & Kinbercap's 11uF capacitor in a first order. (I know, I know) Finished assembling them in two hours. What great deep & detailed sound! Really surprised with the build of the cabinet, considering they are only 1/2" thick, they look & sound like they'd cost much more. Do be careful flipping them around...the laminate is thin & can tare.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasantly Surprised. Good build quality and looks good.Was pleasantly surprised at how good these looked. The fit/finish of the port tube looks very good. Was really surprised to see that there was also internal bracing from top/bottom and side/side, results in a very solid cabinet. Routing recess for the drivers also looks good. Was impressed enough to buy a second set a couple of weeks later. Used with Vifa BC25TG15-04 1" Silk Dome Tweeter Part #: 264-1040 and GRS 6PR-8 6-1/2" Poly Cone Rubber woofer Part #: 292-426. This tweeter is a little smaller than recess provided (leaves a small gap), still looks fine. Summary: Sounds great. A great deal. Wish PE had more cabinets like this in different sizes/options.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT COMPLETE CABINET!I USE THIS CABINET AS MY MAIN SELLER IN MY SPEAKER LINE.COMES COMPLETE AS STATED AND DRIVERS FIT IN CUTOUTS PERFECTLY. WITH A LITTLE WORK YOU CAN REMOVE THE REAR PORT TUBE AND ADJUST BASS ALIGNMENT TO SUIT YOUR TUNING NEEDS. FIT AND FINISH ARE PERFECT AND THE FRONT GRILL LOOKS GREAT! WOULD LIKE TO SEE MORE CABS LIKE THIS FROM PE.

Are the cutouts pre-drilled for the BR-1 drivers? Or can I use other drivers with different screw mount spacing?

Asked by: doctorgizmo
The cutouts are pre-drilled, however, I see nothing that would preclude you from using other drivers. There are only 4 pre-drilled holes for the woofer, and 3 for the tweeter. You could most likely avoid them if you can't use at least one of the existing mounting holes.

IS THE FRONT BAFFLE REMOVABLE

Asked by: bigmike
I don't believe the baffles are removable, but can anyone positively confirm?

Rookie question: Use of polyfill in a BR-1

Just got a BR-1 kit from someone who did not build it. All parts present except acoustic foam. Can I use polyfill instead? If so must I be very careful not to "clog" the port tube. Never used the stuff. Can it be glued sufficiently to keep the port clear?
Asked by: Railfan
Polyfill, within an enclosure, serves a different purpose than acoustic foam. Polyfill reduces the impedance peak of a speaker (making a sealed speaker's response smoother and the cabinet "appear" larger), whereas acoustic foam absorbs internal cabinet reflections.I would recommend two sheets of the product listed below.

The Dayton BR-1 cabinet uses 5/8" thick MDF and has an net internal volume of .52 cubic feet.It is tuned to 38 Hz with a rear mounted port. The box dimensions are 8-5/8" wide, 14-1/4" high with adepth of 11", giving it a small footprint suitable for stand mounting.

How can I make the woofer recess bigger?

I am planning on using these cabinets to house a different woofer with an overall flange diameter of 6 13/16". What is the best way to expand the woofer recess by 5/16"?I have no router, and I won't buy one for this project. Are there other tools that may be suitable? Perhaps a rotary file? Whaddya got?
Asked by: Travis Rysdam
The best tool is a router. My first idea would be to ask around and perhaps borrow one. If you can't find one then call a tool rental store. Finally consider a local craftsman who for fair price may make your needed alteration.If none of the above is possible then consider a large gasket to fill the recess and allow it to extend over the opening. A rotary file would be nearly impossible to control depth and a surface not flat will impede performance.If all else fails hit garage sales. I bought a nearly new Craftsman router for less than 20 bucks with several standard bits. In our area several builders meet monthly. I am sure if you had a club near you that one would help you out.
