Product Details

Dayton Audio PA200-8 8" Pro Woofer Speaker

The PA200-8 8" professional audio woofer, from Dayton Audio, features high power handling by using a vented pole piece and voice coil gap. Black motor parts (including a black polyimide voice coil) help dissipate heat away from the voice coil and help to minimize power compression. 

Extended, smooth frequency response and low distortion are achieved through the use of a powerful 50 ounce ceramic ferrite magnet, combined with a copper cap on the pole piece to reduce stray eddy currents and minimize voice coil inductance.

A strong, low-mass, carbon fiber-impregnated paper cone, together with an I-beam rolled-edge 1.2 mm steel frame provides the rugged durability needed to handle the rigors of touring and for stage use, while still offering the sensitivity and punchy bass that you need.

Dayton Audio's PA Series woofer packs all of these premium features into a value-priced 8" driver that is great for use as an upgrade to sound reinforcement or musical instrument speakers. The PA200-8 also excels in custom-built speakers.

Dayton Audio PA200-8 8" Pro Woofer Speaker
Dayton Audio PA200-8 8" Pro Woofer Speaker is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great sound.. little powerful packageim new to speaker building.. ive had numerous car systems, and decided to take a go at building myself a set up for my house. i made two 1.1ft vented boxes tuned to 54hz out of 3/4mdf, glued screwed and sealed. with a 17inch port length. also put some morel mdt37 tweeters crossed it all over at 2000hz with a dayton off the shelf crossover.. and i have to say im impressed to say the least.. the lows rumble, and the highs are crisp and clear.. no they arent hifi.. no they arent the best thing on the market.. but at $41 each.. these speakers are a steal. they are loud clear, and hit all the right notes. next time i would like to use another pair of these, paired with an even bigger woofer or subwoofer in a 3-way cab.. but for now.. these will definately do the job

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome soundI originally purchased the Dayton PA200 as a replacement midrange speaker for a giant JBL unit. The sound results were so good, that another PA200 was order for the other speaker pair. I could hear the difference that this produced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great replacement for SWR 8x8 HenryI was looking for a good replacement for the Celestion 8" drivers in my SWR 8x8. Fender told me they don't have replacements any longer.....Eminence couldn't help....and I couldn't find any used......so I decided to bite the bullet and replace all the drivers with 8 ohm speakers and wire it differently (still to a 4 ohm load). A user on TB recommended trying the Dayton driver......so for the price I figured I would....the specs look good too. I have to say these drivers turned this cab into a tonal monster. It has a ton of low end now (much more than the stock drivers)......plus it handles a ton more power. I run my Hartke LH1000 through it bridged and it doesn't even break a sweat.I'd also like to mention that one of the 8 I ordered got damaged in shipping. Part Express was AWESOME with their customer service. I explained the situation and told the woman on the phone I needed the cabinet for gigs in a few days......she got the replacement on my doorstep in 2 days! AWESOME customer service.If anyone out there is looking to replace their 8" drivers in a SWR Henry......do this! You will love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my B&WsI have some B&W DM640s that had all 4 cooked woofers. I decided on this as a replacement driver. Not sure why I selected this, maybe the low price/high power and a frequency response that seemed a good fit. The construction on this product is great. I had to modify the opening just a bit with a dremel tool to get them to fit - not a big deal. The result is what I had hoped for. I think the B&Ws sound just as good now as they did with OEM drivers!
