Dayton Audio DC200-8 8" Classic Woofer
Dayton Audio DC200-8 8" Classic Woofer is rated 4.4273 out of 5 by 110.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Adhesive problem for this lot ?I was initialy very happy with this product for 2 days,the sound was just what i was looking for with the recently aquired factory tweeter. Then after 2 days I noticed a " low end buzz" . I then realized the outer ring had become unglued and had dropped on the floor. Closer inspection showed the adhesive had also lifted on the outer ring of the rubber woofer itself leaving a "wrinkle". P/E rep "chad" was kind enough to send me a replacement but the same situation arose, Jon Koppin issued me an R/A so i can ship the second one back for a Q/A check. Thank you for taking care of the situation. Jay

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great replacement wooferThis was a perfect drop-in replacement for a blown woofer in an Advent Prodigy Tower. Costs less than having the old woofer re-foamed, and sounds great. I got two so my speakers match. Fast shipping from Parts Express.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from JBL replacementI purchased a pair of DC200-8's to replace the drivers that had the foam surrounds come apart in JBL LX-500 cabinets. These are not bad speakers, just not an equal match for the drivers they replaced. Overall low end performance is poor...to the point that the mid range and tweeter now over power the woofer.This was my first purchase from Parts Express and the buying, shipping, tracking experience was great.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not For The Advent HeritageI replaced four woofers in a set of Advent Heritage cabinets that were in need of refoaming with these. Unfortunately, there is a narrow band in the upper bass where they lose all articulation and turn to mud. I tried everything, 200 hours of break-in, recapping and swapping amps. Nothing cures the issue.In the end, I pulled them out, refoamed the OEM woofers - and now I have my great speakers back.These are not good plug & play replacements. Maybe some redesign of the crossovers will help, but that's further than I wanted to go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic soundI needed to replace the woofers in my JBL speakers, which I purchased originally in 1983. Parts express recommended this model Dayton woofer and the sound is great. I did have to enlarge the hole slightly for a good fit but it has been completely worth the effort. I will use Parts Express for any future purchases and projects.

Dayton Audio DC200-8 8" Classic Woofer

I need to replace woofer, original's spec shows 36-150 hz. Not finding anything in that specific range. Would, for example, 40-3000 hz do just fine ????

Asked by: grumpy01
There are quite a few variables regarding this. Please contact our tech support for more info, 800-338-0531 x1 or tech@parts-express.com.

What is recommended band pass subwoofer configuration tuned at around 40-50 hz for this woofer? (volume of each chamber and the port dimensions) 

Asked by: markpen883
This requires a ported chamber of 0.5 cuft with a 3" diameter, 8" long port tube and a sealed chamber of 0.6 cuft. This will provide a passband of 37 Hz to 105 Hz.

I need the port size to get the best sound from this speaker in a .50 cu. ft. enclosure crossed over at 600 hertz.

Asked by: Moogie
That volume is actually better suited for a sealed alignment with that woofer. If you wanted to port it, you will only get about a 40 Hz tune from it, with a 2" diameter, 10" long port.

Hello, Was looking to replace the driver on Tannoy EFX 5.1 sub with this as the cone got damaged. Was wondering if the specs would match. Its also a 8" driver. Thanks

Asked by: dskumar
Unfortunately we do not have a cross reference for this type of thing. This will work as long as the original woofer was 8 ohm. If it was 4 ohm, I would recommend the Dayton Classic 8" Subwoofer instead:http://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-dcs205-4-8-classic-subwoofer-4-ohm--295-200

I am going to use 2 woofers in one shared curved enclosure with 4" port in a 3 way system with double woofers. The volume for woofers is 2.4 ft3. What would be port length for F3 not higher than 38-40 hz and what should be the port tuning frequency?

Asked by: markpen883
I would recommend a port that is 6-1/2" long for a tuning frequency of 29 Hz and an F3 of 36 Hz.
