Dayton Audio DC130B-8 5-1/4" Classic Woofer Speaker is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sounding speakerUsed this as a direct replacement in some old Infinity bookshelfs. They were a direct drop in a fit perfectly. They aren't quite as efficient as the oems but they are accurate and much easier than fixing the old ones. My son is using them as desktop monitors running them from a computer through a class a orb amp. They sound great! This setup was way cheaper and at least as good sounding as lower end powered monitors.

If one speaker requires .14 cft of sealed space, does that mean a dual woofer system would require .28 cft of space? Is it that simple or is there some formula for figureing this out? Thanks

Asked by: BadDogAudio
Yes it is that simple. When you double the number of drivers you double the cabinet volume.

Hello, are these suitable for '01 Suburban door panels?

oem door panels 8 ohm, subwoofer is 2 ohm, tweeters in each rear column are 4 ohm. I have the kicker subwoofer in my cart, still looking for tweeters.
Asked by: pzohimsky
According to our reference guide the doors have 6-1/2" speakers in them. You will need to double check this by measuring the factory speakers but if this is the case, the 6-1/2" Dayton Classic would be a good choice.

Asked by: Nick Thomas
The recommended port for this design would be 1-1/2" diameter and 4" long. This provides a tuning frequency of 53 Hz.
