Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fit like a gloveI bought 2 of these to replace in my Realistic minimus-77 speakers. They fit like a glove. They sound just like they did when they were new. A GREAT value. I will by from Parts Express again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value SpeakersI purchased these to replace worn out woofers on a pair of Boston Acoustics speakers that I intended to use for surround sound. The sound is good, however at higher volumes you can start to hear some clipping. Great for surrounds though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from These do fit the Optimus Pro 77 - but.....I purchased these to replace the beyond-repair woofers in my Optimus Pro 77 speakers after reading another review of another person doing the same. Indeed they do fit nicely, however audibly they are not a good match unless you are just making them simply work again for outdoor or maybe surround use. Why not? The original woofers have a considerable excursion and a deep magnetic gap along with a relatively low resonance for a small woofer. These are the opposite - limited excursion, the gap is narrow (output drops quickly outside of their resting state) and a rather high resonance.Now that makes these a good candidate for a wide-range midrange or a really good replacement for a vintage bookshelf system where the bass rise of around 200Hz is a nice plus - and these have enough higher-end output that a tweeter is not needed for a vintage replacement.But if you are considering these for the classic Optimus Pro 77 and it's similar models, go upward in the product line for the best results. I give these a 4 star rating for what they do well. I'd recommend these for other uses or if you just want to get your old Optimus speakers up and running again on the cheap.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from perfect fitI bought 6 of these woofers to replace the old worn out woofers in my optimus pro-77 speakers. they fit perfectly without any modifications needed. great price too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounded pretty good!Bought 2 of these and 2 of the $0.99 tweeters1-2TW-SD85 with 4.7 mf capacitors for an old set of Jensen bookshelf speaker that were my Dad's. Although the cabinets were twice the size of the sealed box recommended size they still sounded pretty good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid performanceI bought six of these to replace the drivers in 3 pairs of Baby Advents to be used as a PC desktop theater. I have them hooked up to a Sherwood 6.1 100wpc receiver, with the PC Optical Digital output.  I'm pleased with the clarity and power handling, but as others have stated they're not as punchy on the low end.  With an added subwoofer though, my setup rocks.

Impedence of woffer tweeter mix

I just ordered 4 of these woofers which are 8 ohms,I also ordered 2 phonolic ring tweeters which are 8 ohms.If i parallel 2 woofers then hook the 8 ohm tweeter on the factory Dayton 2.5 k crossover and set the plug for 4 ohms will that be OK? Any advice on how to connect these ? Or should I order 4 ohm woofers? My amp will drive 4 ohm loads.
Asked by: clod
Let's try to work on those questions... When using a stock crossover - it's best to design to its impedance. Don' worry about your amp. Most amps can handle 4 or 8 ohm loads without issue. When you design a speaker and mix impedances - you're better off custom building your crossover. This is easy to do with a crossover calculator. You plug in the impedance of the drivers, choose the type of crossover (6db/oct etc), the crossover point and it shows you a schematic and the part numbers... To keep it simple - use one woofer, or 4 in series/parallel per side which keeps the same impedance.

If i put a 4 ohm resistor on 2 of these wired in parallel will the load be 4 ohms?

Asked by: BChristy15
If you wire two of these in parallel, the load will be approximately 4 ohms. As a general rule, you should avoid using resistors in woofer circuits.

replacement of blown speakers

i have 1 infinity sterling video center speaker that both of the 5.5" speakers have blown surrounds and maybe blown voice coils. i am looking for replacements would your p/n 292-405 work in it for replacement speakers?
Asked by: vintron
If the nom. impedance is the same as the original Infinity drivers were, these should work fine with the existing x-over. Final SQ will depend on your opinion, but these should be a good 1st try.

hey i was wondering if i had a 15w amp and used 1 speaker on each channel(2 channels total) would it be bad for the amp
Asked by: 110volts
No, this speaker would be perfectly fine on your 15w amplifier, one speaker per channel.
