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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bose 301 Series ll - PERFECT repalcement wooferMy son wreaked my 8" woofer in my Classic Bose 301 Series ll right side speaker in his dorm. No damage to cone or surround just an obvious buzz at normal to high volume. I searched the web for a replacement and found this to be my BEST Choice.It's spec.'s are the best, with superior construction, greater range, higher power handling capacity and lower impedance. You don't need to look any further. I ordered 2 to replace both the right and also the left side woofer. Matching right and left side components is important for balanced sound. The tweeters were fine. Great service...received in them in 2 days!!!!THEY totally exceed my expectations. You can not find anything from Bose or anywhere else for this application and this price. Regardless, they fit perfectly, look superior to factory, sounds superior to factory. 22 years later these Bose 301's sound better the new. I hate to send them back to the dorm.I wish someone would have posted this solution and saved me a lot of time. The speakers now sound so great, I can't stop smiling and you will not be disappointed. You can see the difference in my photo and hear it in person.Best Bose 301 replacement woofer speaker out there and for a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replace KLH woofer with good resultsOne of the 3 pairs of KLH 3 way speakers had issues with both woofers. They must have been on the cheap at some time in the past. Anyway, these were perfect dimensional matches and had a little better frequency response (on paper). Upon installation they sounded great, better than the original woofers. So much so that I displaced a pair of JBL speakers with these. Now, what to do with the JBL's...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Emergency repair is fabulous upgradeThese were used to replace the speakers in vintage EPI 100 speakers bought in 1986. The EPI woofers were supposedly state of the art at the time (for a $100 dollar speaker) with a plastic coated cone, and a soft foam surround.The foam rotted, and people on the internet are trying to figure out how to repair them. It's not worth it. These new speakers have a heavier magnet, better construction, and were a perfect plug and screw-in fit. Repair time was 10 minutes each, and the performance is at least as good as original. I am looking forward to even more improved sound after many hours of break in. I could not be more pleased.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good alternativeI had to replace my 30 year old 12 inch woofer in my system. since I could not find a 12 inch 8 ohm 60 watt replacement, I settled for this 8 inch. It does the job very well for the loss of 4 inches. Not quite the same as my old speaker, but very good clean sound. lacks just a bit on the punch I use to get from my original, but again a very good sound for the size and price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement drivers - found the sweet spotPicked up 90s BIC speakers that sounded muddy to me and just did not sound right especially the highs. Box measured 1.7 ft^3 vented and then called parts-express. Purchased this driver due to the box match, also picked up a pre-assembled xover 2,500Hz and Dayton tweeters (may as well do it all).While the box was pulled apart it was painted a bronze hammered metal just for fun while waiting for my shipment. It arrived very quickly (paint was barely dry). Install was a perfect fit. The sound was amazing. Initially I was looking for more top range but this 8" driver brought in new lows I did not expect. Great balance, clarity, impressive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice little wooferDrop in fit and improvement for my pawn shop 3-ways I bought. Here is what I found.PROS: Strong and deep bass. Fo resonance at 29Hz is about right. I removed my external subwoofer box because these go deep and loud enough. Very smooth response and reactive to input. Excellent for direct replacement in any 8" configurationCONS: Lowish SPL rating. Power handling is average, but better then OEM. Moves a lot of air in ported configuration...may cause a "huffing" sound when off-axis. No where near subwoofer power handling and performance...but, sounds goodCONCLUSION: A steal at their price and above average performance for replacing just about any stock 8" woofer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 24-Year-Old Infinity Speakers Revamped!I have a pair of Infinity RS300 speakers from 1989. They originally had 6-ohm woofers with plastic cones and foam surround O-rings. After being stored in my garage here in North Las Vegas, NV for nine years, the foam surround dried up, cracked up, and fell out when I set them up and began using them again. These Dayton Audio DC200-8 8" Classic Woofers turned out to be perfect replacements, with terrific bass response and amazing sound clarity! When I put them to the test they did not break up or distort even in the most demanding passages. These speakers now sound better than ever! And at a fraction of the cost of purchasing new speakers. The new woofers also fit perfectly into the speaker cabinet openings, and the screw mounting holes also matched up perfectly. I have no doubt these woofers are of far better quality than the original woofers were.If you need quality replacement woofers , I highly recommend these.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good Bose 301 replacment or a budget build!I bought two of these to replace my Bose 301 series II woofers. Although, the specs don't add up perfectly, nothing does and we really don't know anyways because Bose does not publish there specs. But, let it be known that these speakers are so much better than the OEM's ever were! Even though the cabinets are undersized, the bass still goes quite low and everything is so much clearer, no more mud to contend with. Don't get me wrong, they are still in a small Bose enclosure and that will always limit them, but they are still a HUGE improvement over the original woofers. It makes you wonder what Bose puts into their products when a woofer at a retail cost of 25 bucks sounds better than the original? I also did a side by side comparison with the GRS 8" woofer that they sell here for 10.98 and the Dayton Classic beat it hands down also, by a long shot. The GRS would not go low and was not clear, nor would it be an improvement over the OEM. I have also built budget speakers from scratch with the Dayton Classic 8 (with the Dayton Silky tweeter) as a two-way, and in the right size enclosure it performs wonderfully. It will go all the way down to 30hz and remain clear. These speakers for their price cannot be beat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great ValueRecently purchased a pair of these speakers to replace my damaged woofers. First, let me say that they arrived on the date stated when i ordered them and also, they arrived in great condition. No damage to the box. Second, they were not an exact fit into my existing speaker box, however, I was able to get them in with no alteration to my existing enclosure. Third, the speaker connections were different than my existing speakers, but was able to correct this problem with a simple terminal replacement. Overall, I would recommend these speakers to anyone...they sound great and were very affordable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent price/quality ratio.I used two of these drivers in an Isobaric configured subwoofer driven by the Dayton Audio SA-100 plate amp. The sub resides in a studio/shed here in North Carolina and has played music almost daily and every Friday night for "Happy Hour" for eight years. It fills in low frequency for six full range drivers with one end of the shed open to the outdoors. It gets a real workout and is tough as nails. The F3 of the unassisted woofers in the vented cabinet is 36Hz. Driven by the plate amp the low frequencies are powerful and articulate. These drivers are pretty much "bullet proof". Excellent price quality ratio.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent even at Double the price!You read it correctly, even if I had paid $50 each, based on my success with these, I'd be happy with the result.I resurrected some old KLH speakers....sounded blah, but wife liked the oak finish for our living room.Replaced the woofer with these, and wow...some Real Bass finally....and I'm a stickler for clean deep BASS. Used mostly for music, powered by a 100 watt Sony receiver, to give you an idea of use.For those interested in similar upgrade...the cabinets are 0.93 cu.ft volume, with a small rear port. PE recommended these speakers to me, based on the cabinet dimensions/type...and they were right.I gave them a bigger budget, but to my surprise, they suggested these $24 speakers, and I couldn't be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from unsurpassed in this price range.after burning these in for several months,... i'm still impressed every time I listen to them. very accurate, quick,...and yes, capable of going very low. I have them in a less than ideal sized enclosure... .80cu. ft, tuned to 58hz. used for an outdoor application. 3" diameter port x 5" length. i'm amazed at how smoothly these guys roll off up top. so smooth, that I didn't see the need to add a choke. that, combined with super light treated paper cones and rubber surrounds,... is just what the doctor ordered.

One made a clapping sound at low volumes and Parts Express handled it in a swift manner.I used these woofers to replace the ones that had died in a pair of JBL LX500 speakers. Make sure to re-tune the boxes though. According to the Parts Express calculator, I had to install a 2"x5.9" tube. A quick trip to buy a cardboard shipping tube did the trick. Speakers sound great!

Dayton Audio DC200-8 8" Classic Woofer

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.

Is there a matching Passive Radiator for this speaker?

Asked by: same electronic engineer
Thanks for the question!The matching passive radiator would be the 8" Dayton Audio SD215-PR: http://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-sd215-pr-8-passive-radiator--295-492.Many speaker designers use two equal size passive radiators per driver, or use a passive radiator one size larger than the driver being driven. The 10" matching passive radiator would be the Dayton Audio SD270-PR: http://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-sd270-pr-10-passive-radiator--295-494.As with any passive radiator, experiment with different attached weights to tune the cabinet. Please use caution, and low power, before settling on particular tuning frequency; apply power incrementally thereafter.

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

Asked by: Bussch
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: 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.

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.

Are these suitable as replacements for my old Advent Prodigy Towers? The hole diameter looks to be 7 1/2". Do you sell the recommended crossover capacitors as well? I have heard that it is a good idea to replace the caps.

Asked by: DallasDave35
Correction, these Advent speakers are just called "Prodigy". There appears to be one 8" diameter woofer set in a 7.5" cutout hole.

I have an old pair of 2-way JBL L 46 speakers with blown woofers. Can you suggest a suitable replacement for me?

Asked by: Badge
This Dayton Classic or even the Dayton Series II 8" woofer will both be suitable replacements. Please double check dimensions before committing to a purchase, the cabinet may require modifications for a replacement driver to fit.

Is this the best replacement woofer for vintage Bose 601? Thanks...

Asked by: Maxim
This woofer works well as a 601 replacement. You may have to enlarge the cutout though, this requires a hole that is 7.2" in diameter for mounting.

Will this woofer fit properly as a replacement in a Boston Acoustics A60?

Asked by: SSAT
There are two things to pay attention to when looking for a replacement woofer. The physical size which will determine it fits in the existing opening and the type of enclosure. The Boston A60 is a sealed enclosure which means this woofer will work okay as a replacement. Double check the dimensions of the original and compare them to this model. The cutout diameter and frame diameter will determine whether it will fit or not.

Will the Dayton Audio DC200 8" Classic Woofer fit a Boston Acoustics A60 speaker box? What is your return policy? Thx

Asked by: SSAT
The dimensions required to verify this are listed on the website and in the spec sheet. Boston often uses proprietary parts so the dimensions may be slightly off. We do not have a cross reference guide.

hi, how would these woofers do replacing stock AR 94 woofers?

Asked by: amcmachine
The best woofer for those cabinets would actually be the Goldwood GW-8028 which you can see below.http://www.parts-express.com/goldwood-gw-8028-8-butyl-surround-woofer-8-ohm--290-355

Dust cap size?

Odd question I know, but I'm designing a logo to place on the dust cap and I don't want to make the decal too big
Asked by: dkward
Design your logo at 2&1/2" and you should be fine.

is this suitable for use in a f.a.s.t. system?

hey now.im looking build a speaker using this woofer and a 3" full range (and possibly a super tweeter down the road). i will be using a minidsp active crossover. i was wondering if this is a suitable woofer to use from the bottom end up to about 150hz (at most) where it would crossover to the full range driver? are there any other woofers in the dayton line, or ones that you carry that might do a better job than this one for the task i'm looking for? also what slope do you recommend i cross this over to the full range with?the full rangers im looking into are you typical mark audio alpair 7 or fostex 89wk type of driverthanks in advance!
Asked by: osd1
Absolutely!You can use just about any "Woofer", not a "Sub-Woofer", in a FAST system since most will easily extend up to where a mid would like to roll off. I would consider a higher crossover point around 300Hz to relieve your 3" fullranger of more bass duty.Good idea to crossover pre-amp, gives you lots more control and adjustability.

What is the smallest sealed enclosure volume that will give me powerful mid bass and bass with an F3 no higher than 50-55.

Asked by: Mr.Nick
I would keep the box below .75 cu ft. And keep it sealed. Cool to see fellow Oklahomans here!

Diameter distance between screw holes

Hello - I want to drop these into my JBL lx500 cabinets. (3-way)The JBL woofer - Model 4086-1 measures 9 inches in diameter outside edge to outside edge. Can you let me know the diameter distance between the DC200-8 screw holes? I want to be sure these will fit. Thank you!
Asked by: TTaylor
The edge to edge measurement is 205mm (8.07in).The basket diameter is 183mm (7.20").The lip is then 11mm (0.43").The holes are roughly center in the lip, (seems a little closer to the outer edge from the pictures though, but the center will work because error would be two hairs larger than 1/32 of an inch) s0 5.5mm (0.22").Center to center spacing would be 188.5mm (7.42")These might be a little too small for your application. However I did see a review of the Dayton Audio RS225-8 8" Reference Woofer where user ski23 used them as a direct replacement for your cabinets (Edge to edge = 223mm/8.78", Basket Diameter = 184mm/7.24", Center to Center 209mm/8.23"). Remember to pick up a few extra screws for the 6 holes rather than 4 you have now.Another approach:I am assuming that the foam on your current speakers has fallen apart. If this is the case, I suggest buying a foam replacement kit(Run around thirty male deer). I have included a video of how to re-foam an LX series speaker.However if that seems too daunting, PE offers a speaker repair service(around forty male deer plus shipping). I have not used this, but if it anything like the rest of the companies customer service you will be grinning ear to ear. Check out the tab above for an instant quote.Best of luck on your replacement/repair work.
