Dayton Audio PA130-8 5" Full Range PA Driver
Dayton Audio PA130-8 5" Full Range PA Driver is rated 4.5278 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pro center fillI used these to load a pair of older small column type speakers I got for free from a school for center fills. Used them for the first time and they kept up with a QSC 10 box line array and were perfect for the application. I used two cheap piezo horns in each box for highs with a resistor and cap and ran four 5's in each full range. Since they were center fills I ran them off an aux and put only vocal and some guitar in them. Powered by a Behringer iNuke NU-1000 bridged. Dayton is great working man's products and I have always been happy with their cost to performance ratio. Wish to find two more empty boxes and build more.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Compact, but peakyFeedback issues due to peaky response. Bought 4 to make compact stage monitors for amplified acoustic / folk music. With the sure electronics class d amps, they performed well, but had to equalise heavily the 5-6k peak. That's the same peak that helps with the crispness of the sound - I think the next size up 6 1/2 inch 75W may be a better choice with a tweeter for stage monitors. Peaky response with microphones is not a good combo for foldback. The 50w power handling is just a bit light on too. Ok but disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good low to mid range driverI bought a pair of the DA PA130-8 5" full range to use in a 2.1 setup as the left and right full range with a subwoofer. I found the PA130-8 5" were more of a low to midrange application to 3kHZ the high above 2kHZ were not to my taste. So I will include a mid hi driver for the highs. As the product is described it is good for PA applications. I would recommend as a low to midrange driver.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from loud and clearGreat midrange but impressive when used full range. I use a these four to a cabinet for pa use when vocal clarity and projection is needed. If you want deep bass you need a sub but they play background music with ease and they really cover a lot of ground. They work as well as some very expensive B0$E column speakers I have heard at pennies on the dollar.

Dayton Audio PA130-8 5" Full Range PA Driver

I want to build a diy boombox and I want it to be loud, without distortion. Will these sound good? I plan on using amplifier board (2x50w+100w) and a 8" sub. Also thinking of adding some tweeters with these to pick up some of the higher frequencies.

Asked by: lifeiscartoons
These are excellent drivers for a small high output boombox project. Tweeters would help above 10kHz.

Sorry I put my question in the comment section. Here it is proper.  I would like to use this to replace the stock Roland Micro Cube speaker. Someone mentioned the cabinet hole needs to be opened. How much material needs to go? Saw or file ? thanks

Asked by: GaryV
You would need an opening that was 4.41" (4-7/16"), and room for the depth of 2.66" (2-11/16").

I have a pair of JBL J50's, the 5" woofers are shot beyond needing new foam.  I like sharp solid bass and i drive them with clean power. Crossover is 2200Hz, tweets are fine, the PA130-8 at 90 hz is not as low as stock, will I be thrilled with these?

Asked by: joewinslow111
Unfortunately I cannot say how you will like a certain item as a replacement. These will probably not have the low end the old ones did even with the same enclosure tuning, but they will more than likely be more sensitive. You will also want to verify the woofer frame diameter, this Dayton is about 5.2", so if the JBL is exactly 5" you may have to modify the enclosure.

Based off a previous question, the recommended vented volume for a single woofer is .26 cubic feet. What would it be for two woofers per vented box? To clarify, would it simply be double the volume or how does that work?

Asked by: TBorlee
Yes when you double the number of drivers you simply double the volume of the enclosure and number of ports for the same tuning frequency and F3.

I am going to try these for optimus 77 speaker replacements. The woofer in these is 5 inch round about 2 5/8 deep I can cut the 2 side down a little to make them fit but what is the hole spacing on these. I can always redrill if needed.

Asked by: Gordy55
The hole spacing on this driver is 4.75".

I want to build an aura-clone, ive seen a diy article minus dimensions with this speaker, can you help with proper size for optimum response. cordially don ward

Asked by: d ward
I am not familiar with that particular design, but the recommend vented box for this woofer is .26 cubic feet. With a 1-1/2" diameter, 2-1/4" long port the tuning frequency will be about 73 Hz and provide a flat response.
