Reviews

Dayton Audio ND65-4 2-1/2" Aluminum Cone Full-Range Driver 4 Ohm
Dayton Audio ND65-4 2-1/2" Aluminum Cone Full-Range Driver 4 Ohm is rated 4.4286 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great full rangeI used four of these speakers in a sound bar, each in a separate sealed box about 0.05 cu. ft. each. Firstly, these are some very well made speakers. They look nice as well. Surprisingly, I got useful bass response down to about 65 Hz. surprised by how little the drivers distorted, even at full excursion, which doesn't take much to reach by the way. Needs a little bump in the higher frequencies, but very detailed. Overall very well built.

amp port length question for my enclosure

Can i run two of these with a dta-2 amp?my enclosure is .04 cubic feet. If i want the best sound and bass from these should I port the enclosure? if so, what diameter and length? Thank you very much for the help.
Asked by: knic
Those will work OK with that enclosure with a 1" diameter, 4" port. This will tune the box to 100 Hz.

8-element line array

I'd like to build a line array using 8 of these drivers. I'm thinking of a vented cabinet of 0.64 cu. ft. What size port would you recommend in such a configuration?
Asked by: Faxon
I would recommend a 2" diameter port that is 1.75" long for a tuning frequency of 60 Hz.

Enclosure size with two speakers?

I see the optimal sealed enclosure size is 0.08 ft3. So for two speakers I guess I need 0.16 ft3. Is it better to split that volume into two 0.08 ft3 spaces (one for each speaker) or can I mount them both into one larger space?
Asked by: entomophile
There will be no audible difference between the two, either way will work fine.

Anybody knock the mag shield off these yet? I'm tucking these into...

small orbs and need to remove them.
Asked by: John Langdon
These do not have a two piece magnet assembly, it is all one neodymium magnet. The reason they are considered shielded is simply because a neo magnet is self shielding by nature. Unfortunately there is no way to make these shallower.
