Dayton Audio DC200-8 8" Classic Woofer
Dayton Audio DC200-8 8" Classic Woofer is rated 4.48 out of 5 by 125.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bring the BoomI bought these speakers to drop into a pair of Optimus - 8" 2-Way Bookshelf speaker cabinets. The cabinets are .51 cu. ft. volume & have a 1 1/2" diameter port tube & have them tuned 40Hz. These are some good speakers for booming bass, which is what I like. The paper dust cap had me worried a bit but I was relieved when I seen that They are pretty stiff. Also the rubber surrounds on the speaker are pretty soft, so they should break in pretty quickly. I say ruffly 10 hours of use at normal playing levels & they are all freed up. These really are excellent speakers for the money & you can't go wrong buy some.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gained Exceptional Bass Response!A friend at my work had an old set of AR93Q's he wanted to replace and he said I could have them if I hauled them away. All the original drivers were crapped out and had been poorly re-surrounded. I mean the glue jobs were a mess. I didn't care about restoring original parts, I just wanted good sound. First I replaced the tweeters and mid-bass units with Parts Express Part # 292-554 and Part # 264-330 respectively. I knew I had done well when the new drivers sounded exactly like the ones I had replaced. I wasn't going so much for an improvement in sound as I was the same sound, but newer components. The side firing woofers were next on the list, and I needed 4, so I chose these babies, and WOW!!! The difference in bass from the old woofers to these new Dayton Audio's was phenomenal. I was wondering if I had accidentally bumped my subwoofer's volume control after I had finished installing these and gave a listen test. It seemed like I gained another octave deeper in response, and this was with no extensive break-in period, like some woofers need. I can only expect better performance as these finally DO get broken in. Here you see my speakers in their semi-finished state. I have installed metal grills over the side firing units and plan on making grills to cover the front firing speakers. I was not fond of AR's original "Pillow Case" speaker grills, so I trashed those immediately. Once I complete these I will post a review with finished pictures of the grills installed. These woofers are awesome, glad I got them. Thanks again Parts Express.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loads more low end than my original woofers!I live in the UK and found these Dayton Audio DC200-8 8" else where in Europe but, they only had 2 in stock. I had been on PE before then but didn't want to pay so much for shipping costs etc. Turns out I had to to complete my speakers upgrade, and turns out due to exchange rate it cost about the same anyway.These drivers are very well made, they are heavy and look the part. Very impressed with the sound that these produce. They are so much more punchier than my originals by miles. For the price of these you can not go wrong!I will be completing the rest of my modifications with drivers brought from PE in the not so distant future.....

Dayton Audio DC200-8 8" Classic Woofer

What would be the price of 4 woofers plus postage to Australia? I want to build an mtm like the angel fire mtm. I read you need a better tweeter for midrange, what do you recommend?  Is a 4.4 cubic box over kill. Is 25 or near that possible? Thankyou

Would there be much of A db difference using three over just two. If so what internal size and port size would you need. Thanks

Asked by: cfjb
Three drivers will have an overall sensitivity of about 97 dB where two will only be around 93 dB. The enclosure size will also be larger, but they will not have any more extension. This requires a bit more information in order to proceed. Please contact our tech support for more help with this question, or 800-338-0531 x1.

I have a pair of Pioneer CS 44 bookshelf speakers still in great shape, but the woofers leave a little to be desired. Would the Dayton DC 200-8 woofer be a good replacement without having to change out the crossover?
