Reviews

Dayton Audio PK165-8 6" Professional Kevlar/Paper Cone Midrange Speaker
Dayton Audio PK165-8 6" Professional Kevlar/Paper Cone Midrange Speaker is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dayton Audio Pro midrange kevlar/paperI like the Daytons, definitely worth the extra bucks. This is used in 3 way system and vocals are clearer than with regular 6.5 in woofer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Speaker for an Old-Time RadioWell, I purchased this speaker (and an Output Transformer, Tubes & a Choke) to replace the poor worn out one in a 1927 radio. The original speaker was an old electromagnet type. This speaker is more than enough for one that's driven by a single-ended #41 tube!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great power handlingexcellent little drivers. I would use these in a mini line array design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would purchase these speaker againThe speakers in my 20 year old Boston Acoustics book shelf speakers needed replacement. After contacting B/A I found they did not have replacements so I started my search. Parts-Express had the size I was looking for and the Dayton PK165-8 6" Professional Kevlar/Paper Cone Midrange fit my budget. Received them in 7 days had them installed and they sound great. I would recommend these to any one replacing or building their own book shelf speakes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is the one!I have tried several different mid-range speakers in this price range and have never been happy. I had designed my speakers with a 12db crossover at 800hz and 5000hz. I had the woofers and tweeters I wanted but finding mids that fit the curve had me redesigning my system. They always emphasized the 1000hz range. With extended range and just the right response curve these fit right in. They're a little sensitive at an spl of 93 but once matched via resistors they're perfect for my use. I am not an audiophile but am a musician who knows perfection ain't out there. And these Daytons reproduce all the glorious imperfection I need to hear!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clean and smoothNice surprise! I thought this driver would have a characteristic PA kind of sound. But was pleasantly surprised when it turned ou to be a solid performer worthy of a home set up. I crossed it over at 600Hz and 3500Hz.

Would this be a good replacement for polk model 5 woofer

Asked by: kemo67
Unfortunately this will not produce much bass below about 80 Hz. I would recommend the Dayton Classic DC160-8 instead.

Bass guitar speakers?

Would these be good in a bi-amped bass guitar rig? I have a 4x10 cab and would like 2 of these (or similar) on top for a little high end help. I don't like the sound of horns on bass cabs, however I would like some more bark in the upper freq. range. High wattage isn't necessary, this is for home use.
Asked by: Nonsuchpro
Yes. If you've an aversion to horns, I'd say these may be just the ticket to provide that bit of "bark" you're seeking.

What cross over should i use

I want to pair two of these and one Dayton Audio DC28F-8 1-1/8" Silk Dome Tweeter per tower speaker. I was wondering if that is a good idea for great sound and if so what cross over should i buy? If that is not a good set up what recommendations do you have? thanks!
Asked by: rad customs
While prebuilt crossovers are available, the sound quality they produce is typically not so good, since they only use generalized "textbook" designs, and do not (cannot) factor in effects of the enclosure, etc.I would suggest gaining a general understanding of speaker systems and crossover design. There are several excellent resources, from PE's TechTalk forum, where you can "meet" a number of friendly and helpful people that share your interests, to various books available here.
