Product Details

Fender 8" Full-Range Speaker 8 Ohm

Fender designed the Acoustasonic guitar amplifier to deliver full, clear sound using this 8" extended range speaker. Not only does this driver play reasonably flat up to 7,000 Hz, the low free-air resonance, decent Xmax, and low Qts combine to produce great bass in sealed and ported speaker cabinets.

Fender 8" Full-Range Speaker 8 Ohm
Fender 8" Full-Range Speaker 8 Ohm is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great PriceI have utilized two of these for small bass cabinets in a simple two way design with the clearance 2" BMR's forming a miniature line array on top. They have worked well in this appication

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great SQI bought this driver to use as a low mid-range in my truck. I built a center console box at .45 cu ft tuned to 91 Hz with a first order band-pass crossover at 80 Hz and 850 Hz. I have 4 4" drivers and 2 5.25" drivers with 1st order high pass crossovers set at 900 Hz and I had to turn the amp down on the 8" driver because it was overpowering the other 6 drivers. I'm no audiophile, but I can't find any downside of this driver.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet soundingI'm using it pretty much what it was intended for, put it in a mid power Crate amp to use as an acoustic guitar amp. Sounds soft and sweet but that's how I wanted it to. I imagine you could make this sound pretty much any way you wanted as long as you didn't overdrive it. Great range in a single package.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not good!i put these in a pair of ar 94's and the blown speakers sounded better. don't know if i got a bad batch but i returned these the same day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vented box for good bass at low volumeYou can get good, full, controlled bass if you put this driver in a 2.5 ft^3 box and tune it to 38hz. In my pictured experimental speaker, I don't feel any bass quality is given up even at 55 or 60 db. (The speaker is not finished since I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it other than a learning tool.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great SoundI needed a full range speaker to listen to Talk Radio, Overnight DX radio transmissions, and some music content. The Fender name carried some weight with me, so I bought one. I built a 3/4 plywood cabinet and covered it in speaker carpet. Added some cabinet corners and plugged it in. This really sounds good! Makes me wonder how good these babies sound in a real speaker cabinet. Voices sound clear, and music has bass. I guess thats the definition of "full range" in speakers. With 75 watt capability there a lot of headroom to turn this speaker way up!

Fender 8" Full-Range Speaker 8 Ohm

My Fender Vibro Champ XD has an 8" speaker with an open back. Do you know what the sound difference would be if this cabinet with 2 8" speakers was open back rather than closed and stuffed? Thanks you very much for your help.

Asked by: dmuler
For lack of a better word, the open back will give you more of an open sound and give you a leaner bass response, whereas the sealed enclosure will provide more bottom end and probably sound less natural.

Is anyone familiar with this speaker for Hi-Fi or home theater?

I have read some reviews for this as a "guitar" speaker and they were quite favorable.Home about for home Hi-Fi use? Im sitting on a bunch of different 8in drivers now,but these buyouts are occasionally to good to pass up. Thank you
Asked by: Doofus
This woofer models pretty well in about 1 cubic foot sealed for in room response into the mid 30's so using it in a home application should work quite well.

horn loaded

Given the T/s, and Frequency response, while not "ideal" or greatly extended, would a rear loaded horn be a viable option with an extended midrange or tweeter combo? maybe experiment with homemade phase plug/whizzer?For this price, i'd be hard pressed to pass this up compared to the extra expense of TB or Fostex equivalents that can pack a bassy feel. This would be theatre setup mostly, so not critical for music playback... all things considered!
Asked by: kitkat
I suggest a speaker with an "accordion" surround and heavier paper for a horn loaded drive. A half round surround speaker will likely become non linear in a compression chamber driven horn. Only 2 things keep the cone moving in a smooth pulse--the spider and the surround. A half round surround will allow more movement of the cone, but at the price of "wiggling" [non-linear] movement. A folded horn will reinforce bass down to the horn length, where it becomes an "unloaded" sealed box. I include some suggestions.

Are these instrument (electric guitar) speakers or are they also OK for use as woofers in stereo speaker boxes?

Asked by: SaltDog
These will work well for either application.

What size cabinet would I need for two of these in a guitar amp speaker cabinet?  Any other info that might be useful would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Asked by: dmuler
For a guitar application the cabinet volume plays less of a roll than a woofer application. A pair of these will have good results in 1-1.5 cubic feet sealed and stuffed.

how would these work replacing the woofers in my ar 94's ?

Asked by: amcmachine
Yes this will work well as the replacement woofer in those speakers.
