Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dayton DC200-8 8"Basically I was trying to revive some sentimental favorite near-field monitors(Tannoy PBM-8) that have been sitting for close to 10 years because the foam surrounds disappeared. Tannoy no longer supplies replacements which turned out to be a blessing because the pair of Daytons I bought at a shipped cost of just under $60 for the pair turned out to be a much better quality set of drivers than I pulled out of the Tannoys. Took about 20-30 hrs to break them in and I couldn't be happier. Right now we are streaming Netflix movies through them but in another month or so I will hook them up to a Bryston 4BSST as near fields again and revisit the past in my studio. I am currently designing a 3-way WMTMW with the Dayton RS series and the Arum Cantus line with Morel Tweeters. I'm going to R&D both sets of drivers with a Powersoft 4-way plate amp. Yes, seriously a sick puppy. J

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Replacement for KLH Model Twenty TwoUsed a pair of these to replace the woofers in an old set of KLH model twenty two bookshelf speakers. Sounds great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound !I installed these units into Sony two way 100W speakers. The original drivers have deteriorated, and needed replacement. The Dayton speakers are fantastic.

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

Dayton Audio DC200-8 8" Classic Woofer

Will this woofer (Dayton Audio DC200-8 8" Classic Woofer) fit/work with Bose 601 series i speakers?

Asked by:
If the hole cutout in your Bose 601 speakers is large enough in diameter to fit the DC200-8, then it might be a suitable replacement driver and should restore your speakers to making sound. However, the only way to guarantee original factory level performance is to replace the original woofer with a direct replacement from Bose.

Looking for replacement 8's for a couple of late 60's Pioneer cabinets.  The approximate 1 cu. ft. existing enclosure has a 3000 hz crossover installed with a 3" vented port.  Port size is 4"long.  Will this particular speaker work for this application? 

Asked by: dudempdude
The woofer will work well for that volume, although I would recommend either changing the port length or using a smaller port diameter. Right now your tuning frequency is a high 53 Hz. You could double the length to 8" which will help and drop the tune to 42 Hz, or replace it with a 2-1/2" diameter, 8-1/2" long port for a "best" tune of 36 Hz. We have a press fit port below that would work well, that requires a 3-3/4" diameter hole for mounting.http://www.parts-express.com/speaker-cabinet-port-tube-2-1-2-id-x-8-1-2-l-flared--260-478

Would these be appropriate replacement woofers in a pair of Acoustic Research 18b speakers? I believe the internal volume is around .34 cubic inches and the crossover around 2400 hz or so.  (I no longer have the originals, so refoaming is not an option.)

Asked by: Bigtrain
The GRS option you asked about would be a better choice.

I am looking to upgrade an older set of 2 way speakers that the foam surround has rotted. Boxes are roughly 0.6^3 ft and are currently ported. Looking for an economical upgrade, will these work ok? Also is the DC28F-8 a good match for these?

Asked by: upstech76
Yes and yes. The volume is a bit on the small side but it will still work alright and give you similar low end to the originals. I would recommend a crossover of 2,000 Hz using that tweeter in this setup.

Do you sell an 8" woofer that is a very close, or exact, replacement for the 601 series 3 bass driver(s).

Asked by: Pepperdog
Unfortunately we do not have a Bose replacement although the Dayton Classic is our most popular replacement for that model, as well as one of the better options for the application. This requires a 7.2" diameter opening in the cabinet so you will want to double check this before committing to a purchase.
