Dayton Audio DA175-8 7" Aluminum Cone Woofer
I have speakers that need an upgrade in an exterior outside overhang sofit on a house. How well will thease hold up under outside moisture.
The 7" diameter is a perfect replacement and so is the wattage ratting. Is there a speaker that would be better for the application comparable.
With the aluminum cone and rubber surround, this speaker is a great candidate for outdoor use. You should be able to get years of enjoyment from it, especially under the eave, where it won't be directly exposed to the full brunt of nature's wrath.

Recommended crossover frequency?
If I were to pair this woofer with the DC28F-8 tweeter, what crossover frequency is recommended? Also, any advice on a different/better tweeter to go with this woofer would be appreciated. I'm still rather new to diy audio so I appreciate any help I can get. Thanks ahead of time!
I use 2.5k with my DC28 and it works well.

Need the dimensions of the driver.
I need all the physical dimensions of this driver so I can compare it to another 7" woofer I will be replacing. thanks in advance.
The tech drawing for this woofer is available on the spec sheet below:http://www.parts-express.com/pdf/295-335s.pdfDivide the metric numbers by 25.4 to see the dimensions in inches.

in car use
just wondering anybody got any thoughts on how well these woofers will work in a car as a midrange/mid bass speaker, im aware of them being 8 ohm got a high power amp and with 2 8 ohm speakers in parallel will send a 4 ohm load to an amp that puts out 100watts rms at 4 ohms so each speaker will get 50 watts rms, just wondering about them
It should work fine as a mid / mid-bass driver. If you look at the SPEAKER BUILDER tab and then select WOOFER SELECTION GUIDE in the right column - you can find this driver and how it works best in sealed and ported enclosures... As for 8 or 4 ohms, power amps aren't linear. Power doesn't double as the impedance halves. Just make sure you choose a good amp that matches the number of drivers and the power capability they have.

1.9 cu.ft vented
want to use two of these woofers in a floorstand for a two way speaker system with a 1.9 cu ft box tuned to about 31 hz?
Well, according to the PE woofer selection guide, a 0.75cf box will give this speaker an f3 of 35hz, which is pretty low for a speaker this size, and rather good in general, so a 1.9cf box tuned as you wish to 31hz is pretty close. Therefore I believe you could put 2 of these speakers in a 1.5cf box. If you tuned the box well with the port accordingly i think it would rock! (PS- these speakers have a rather high QTS spec, Qts: 0.58 - so you may want to run this speaker thru some simulations if you are building your own crossover to ensure a smooth response).
