Dayton Audio CE Series CE52P-4 2" Paper Full Range Driver

Dayton Audio is pleased to introduce the new Commercial Engineering (CE) Series of small loudspeaker drivers. Engineers, designers, and integrators will benefit from how effortlessly these speaker components satisfy the diverse demands associated with consumer electronics and audio-enabled projects.

Multiple types and styles are available within the CE Series driver family. Each was produced to provide excellent audio quality no matter what the overall system design goals may be, and to suit a wide spectrum of engineering requirements. These versatile yet economical loudspeakers are available in sizes from 28 mm (1-1/8") to 90 mm (3-1/2") in diameter, and with power ratings from 1.5 watts to 5 watts continuous RMS power.

The CE52P-4 provides exceptional range with high output, plus features you’d expect from a much larger driver. Its high-quality design features a paper cone, rubber surround, high-performance dual-magnet neodymium motor, and an injection-molded frame with gasket for conventional front or rear mounting. It’s the perfect choice for multimedia applications, hi-fi line arrays, or compact loudspeakers.

Dayton Audio CE Series CE52P-4 2" Paper Full Range Driver
Dayton Audio CE Series CE52P-4 2" Paper Full Range Driver is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Decent sounding driver.I built a small under cabinet stereo using the electronics from a radio I bought that sounded... bad. Knowing Parts Express could make it sound better, I kept it and redesigned it. The original speakers were 3.5 inches. These have more low end and aren't nearly as harsh and bright. Pleasantly surprised with the sound of these. Went with .03ft³ per chamber, ported 140hz. Plays loud enough on 2.4 watts to be uncomfortable to try and talk over it. Nice little driver.

Dayton Audio CE Series CE52P-4 2" Paper Full Range Driver

Small portable stereo, enclosure size for a single driver? Ported or sealed? Tuning frequency? I selected 'recommended' on "Speaker Designer" (Android App) and got: Net Vol. 0.045 Ft³, Ported box tuning to 88Hz. Does this sound about right?

Asked by: only_humann
That's an awfully low tune for a tune for a driver with an Fs of over 200 Hz. I would recommend that volume, but raise the tuning to about 140 Hz instead.

Enclosure volume with passive radiator.

I'm using two of these drivers in a small sealed enclosure and would like to get more bass using the Peerless 3-1/2" passive radiator. Can you recommend an enclosure volume for this setup? Thanks for the help.
Asked by: Jeff B
The enclosure volume would need to be 0.018 cubic feet. This would provide a tuning frequency of 170 Hz.
