Dayton Audio DC130B-4 5-1/4" Classic Woofer Speaker
Dayton Audio DC130B-4 5-1/4" Classic Woofer Speaker is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes a great midrangeI just received a pair of these. Replacing rotted out mids in a pair of Infinity 6K APPAs. These are a perfect fit and really sound great, probably better than the original domes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bookshelf Woofers!Picked up a pair of Phillips bookshelfs measuring 7x8x9.5 inches (.31 cu ft) made from 3/8" particle board but nicely veneered and begging for better drivers than the 30 watt 5.25s they were built with using those microscopic hair thin speaker wires. Tried another woofer first but it was optimized for a sealed cabinet and these had 1.5" by 5" ports. Changed to these drivers and wow! Crystal clear, powerful (driven by Carver TFM-6CB amp) and sending great bass out those ports. Combined with BIC Tweets, Hi-Pass at 3K and just let the woofers run full out. These4 little boxes outshine a lot larger bookshelfs. 4 Ohms helps pull some serious power from the amp and drives them well. Have compared Dayton drivers to several others and have always been pleased with results delivered by Dayton products. You pay a bit more for them but considering all the work that goes into a project it is so nice to witness the results when utilizing quality components!

What would be the best tuning frequency for a ported enclosure? 

Asked by: jim80
I would recommend tuning this around 55 Hz in the recommended vented volume. This would require a 1.5" diameter, 5.5" long port.

I am building a set of boxed in-walls for home theater. I would like to use 2 of these in each enclosure in parallel but am concerned of the load on my amp as it only has specs for 8ohm and 6ohm load. should I be concerned

Asked by: Rfish
If you are using two of these in each speaker, they will need to be wired in series for an 8 ohm load. This will not harm your amplifier.

Is there any way to determine the diameter of the magnet on this dc130b-4\5.25 woofer. I purchased a set of dc130bs-4, and the magnet would not fit enclosure. If the dc130b-4 is 3\8" smaller in diameter. That would be great. Please advise. '   

Asked by: dactag
The diameter of the magnet on this woofer is 80mm or 3.15". This is about 7.5mm (0.3") less than the shielded version.

Frequency Response?

Are there frequency response graphs available for this and other Dayton Audio drivers?I'm looking to build a matching set of satellites for my HT using one of the following drivers:Visaton 9025Dayton Audio 5 1/4" classicDayton Audio 5" designerDayton Audio 5" referenceand I'd like to use a ribbon tweet. I am currently using a KEF C1 Bookshelf and a C6LCR for center. I don't like the aluminum tweet, it's sounds "spitty" but I I'm also wary of first time ribbon horror stories. I know I need a woofer with light cone and Arum Cantus is right on the mark but way off the price.
Asked by: Siggma
The Dayton audio drivers all have a specifications sheet in the right hand column under the manuals/resources heading. They feature all of the specifications and a frequency response graph.
