Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great driver at an even better priceI bought these drivers to replace some old pioneer 2-way speakers in my truck. I didn't realize that the outside of the drivers are 5.25". Needless to say, they did not fit the old holes for the 5.25" drivers in my truck, they are a good bit smaller than a car speaker. I had some MDF board so It wasn't hard to make them work. I've installed the drivers with 1st order band-pass crossovers set at 900 and 4200 Hz. I bought 4 1/2" mylar dome tweeters for everything above 4225 Hz and I'm glad I went this route, it sounds much clearer than any coaxial speaker. I spent less on my entire set of speakers/capacitors/inductors less than what I sold my old coaxial speakers for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sounding midrange.I bought a pair of these to replace the mids in my BIC RTR 1530 speakers. I thought the originals were quite harsh sounding. These have a very smooth and detailed sound. They were an exact replacement with no modifications necessary. If you have the RTR 1530's look no further. You won't be disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great fit for my design conceptThe steel mess grill was really part of my design goal (see photo). I wanted to build a 3-way system so the speakers were part of the visual appeal, not just functional but easy on the eyes as well. It is a sealed box design using the Nuance mylar tweeter and an 8 inch woofer. The midrange itself performs just fine but I incorporated a L-pad in the circuit to attenuate -3dB, since I prefer a bit of a midrange dip. The woofer wasn't from PE but here are the specs:•Polypropylene cone•Rubber surround•1" voice coil•20oz. magnet•Sensitivity: 89dB (W/M)•Impedance: 8ohm•Re: 7.2ohm•Le: 0.56mH•Frequency response: 50Hz~6KHz•Fs: 28.8Hz•Qts: 0.45•Qes: 0.52•Qms: 3.40•Vas: 98.26 liters•Xmax: 3.5mm

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't work for meI got this speaker to replace an 80's vintage midrange in a 3 way system. Compared to my old midrange, which was obviously cheap and the magnet was much smaller, this replacement seemed very quiet, with most of the sound at the low end of the frequency range. Guitar and vocals were lacking compared to the old speaker. I compared them with 2 different crossovers and with the full spectrum signal, and in all cases this midrange was too quiet, and too biased toward the low end. I can compensate with an equalizer, in which case the sound is pretty good, but it takes too much equalization to get it there. I will be looking for something else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Look TwiceI didn't think much of this little speaker when I first got it. I thought "it's cheap so I'll take a chance". I free air tested it for a day and wasn't too impressed. I put it aside for a while and then I built a nice closed box for it and hooked it up and let me tell you, WHAT A NICE LITTLE SPEAKER. Big sound and nice range. You have to take a second look at this mid-range. You can't beat it for the money!!!!Bill in MS

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet midrangeI installed this mid and a grs 12" paper cone in 2 old speaker boxes that also have 2 paper cone tweeters and mid and high L-pads in them.Decently built cabinets.I do need to adjust the ports as there are 2 different types in the 2 cabs.All I can say is WOW!PE got them to me in three days and they were perfect.I highly recommend these,and for about 6 bucks each they rock.
