Rated 2 out of 5 by from ok for the moneyThis speaker is just ok for me, it seems to me it should be stronger and have more of a punch. but i guess you get what you pay for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good replacement driver .....I just put one of these in an Advent Prodigy II cabinet with a blown driver, and there is no way to tell the difference from the original. Brought the old Advents back to life in a BIG way !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speakersI purchased a pair to drop into my pair of Design Acoustics PS-9 speaker cabinets. The PS-9s are 3 way speakers with 200 Hz and below being fed to the woofer. They are powered by a Kenwood KR-A5040 receiver. Though I can't attest to the original sound of PS-9s cause the woofers were already shot when I got them, the sound is fantastic especially when I hit the Loudness button on my Kenwood. Two things to note: 1.) the speaker terminals don't quite match the PS-9's wiring, and 2.) because the woofer is downfiring, the woofer's magnet will hit the enclosure for the midrange speaker. If you have a little bit of talent, it's easy to make adapters for the terminals and make an about 1/16th inch gasket to fit betweenthe woofer and the cabinet. I ain't no audiophile, but I can't understand some of the reviews about so-so sound or quality. To me, the sound and quality are great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great woofer with high power handlingI like the fact it has a bumped and vented pole. It has high power handling for an 8" woofer at this price. I use them for my floorstanding enclosures, and they put out strong bass. Around 50Hz these things are real eye openers!Don't hesitate at all to buy these, they sound great and rock hard. I'm using a 4" Precision Port which makes the sound smooth. They even hit good lows. Thanks PE!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not BadI Bought these to replace ,rather than repair 2 infinity speakers. they sound alright the more i play them, but nothing as good as the originals not a bad price but i wished i would have gone ahead an had the originals refoamed.

Are these suited for a ported enclosure?

I am limited by time, and need to know asap if these drivers would perform better in / or out of a ported enclosure, (sealed) ??Thanks, Johnny.
Asked by: Jlux
This woofer is better suited for a sealed box. I would recommend about 1 cubic foot for an f3 in the mid-upper 40's in room.

Yes these will work well as Heritage replacements. You can expect response into the upper 30's, lower 40's.
