Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty good sounding woofer on a budget.I've got these in old EPI 180 cabinets with another Radio Shack 8" woofer as a passive radiator using parts express crossovers (low pass 6db/octave, hi-pass 12db/octave) to the Dayton reference aluminum tweeters. I've tweaked the crossovers by ear adding inductors and bypassing the caps with Dayton film/foil and wow, these really sing. I think I got lucky as the drivers seem to have the same sensitivity but they also work together amazingly well. The bass extends below the fs of 56hz probably due to the loading and large cabinets. These are on my screen in porch and people come over and are amazed at the sound. I realize the tweeters have a lot to do with the way these sound but again, I was amazed by how well these two drivers integrated especially this being a budget woofer.

How would these sound in a 48" Tall by 12" Wide by 12"Depth cabinet? Ported or not ported? in a 2 way setup with a goldwood silk dome tweeter? 100 watt x 2 Tech Amp

Asked by: Summit
That volume will work OK for a sealed design, providing an F3 of about 60 Hz and in room response into the 40's. The woofer and tweeter combination would work well, I would recommend a crossover between 2,500 and 3,000 Hz.

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.
