Product Details

Dayton Audio H08RW 8" Round Waveguide 1" Threaded

A waveguide couples the high frequency driver to the listening space without the harmful distortion artifacts of marginally designed and implemented horn loading. It achieves this through the use of non-traditional geometries and lower expansion rates. The resultant sound has less distortion, with an "open" characteristic not often associated with typical "pinched" or "honky" compression driver/horn combinations. Dayton Audio waveguides reveal all of the articulate, accurate sound reproduction that your HF drivers are capable of delivering, whether the application is live sound, critical studio monitoring, or demanding home audio playback. The Dayton Audio H08RW high frequency waveguide is precision molded from high-performance plastic, and has an industry-standard 1-3/8" x 18 TPI throat for mounting screw-on style drivers. It is designed to exhibit a nominal 75° conical-shaped coverage pattern, and will provide useful acoustical loading down to 2,200 Hz. Dimensions: 8" round x 4-3/4" deep.

Dayton Audio H08RW 8" Round Waveguide 1" Threaded
Dayton Audio H08RW 8" Round Waveguide 1" Threaded is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 8" bass trumpetthe PE photo is a bit deceptive since these horns are really shaped more like a bass trumpet.while i haven't integrated these into the system yet, i do believe the reviews by others are on the mark - it is unlikely these wave guides will result in anything but a smooth sound without the pinched harshness often associated with horn systems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sounding horns!I've got these 8" waveguides paired with the Eminence APT-50 Super Tweeter, and crossover-ed at 5k/12db. The sound is very open, airy, and smooth. Starts to roll off around 16k, but a slight boost at 15k-16k will bring it back. Sounds like a real good poly dome, and just shy of a silk dome sound. No "pinched" or "honky" sound. VERY easy to listen too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and great valueI use a pair of these for the mids in a three way DIY stereo speaker setup with a pair of Eminence PSD 2002S-8 compression drivers. These sound more like a cone midrange than they do a compression driver and integrate well with my other speakers. These do need to be paired with a good quality compression driver though to reveal their fill potential.
