Rated 5 out of 5 by from EPI RebuildI put 2 of these DC200-8 in each EPI 180 cabinet and 2 of 1 1/8 soft dome tweeter in each cabinet with a 16uf capacitor and the original 3 way switch to adjust tweet level ,these sound great at all levels of volume and give great low bass and a crisp clear upper tweeter range .I bought the cabs empty so I could build these .

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

Looking for a small, sealed speaker with a low pass crossover at approx 400 hertz to give my mains more punch in that area. Main speakers are large 6ohm ribbons with 88 sensitivity rating. Is this driver a good option?

I plan on using these ported with a pair of Dayton 1 1/8" truncated silk domes and Dayton 2-way crossovers with a crossover point of 2,500Hz. What size/length port tube should I use with the recommended ported enclosure and should I add poly fill?

Asked by: Reible82nd
I would recommend a 2" diameter, 5" long port for a tuning frequency of 30 Hz. We usually recommend about a half pound of stuffing per cubic foot of airspace.

This is an unusual question - I can't find an answer anywhere it seems. So i'm hoping PE might know. Is it possible to have 8 of these drivers in an array of 4 and 4 so you end up with an arrangement of 2 horizontal and 2 rows of 4 vert- horn on top 

Asked by: spunk
It is possible, but usually having drivers side by side like that will introduce lobing issues in the midrange.

I need to know the recess depth and the displacement of the driver? 2 drivers will be sharing a .97cft sealed enclosure...I'm using 4 of them in a beastly 3-way center channel

Asked by: steve75g
The recess depth of this woofer is 3/8". Total displacement is .0314 cubic feet.
