GRS 8PF-8 8" Paper Cone Foam Surround Woofer
GRS 8PF-8 8" Paper Cone Foam Surround Woofer is rated 4.4583 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from cheapo wooferVery quiet. Can talk over it at its loudest volume. Breaks up and cuts out before getting 50 watts. Won't buy again

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great mid rangeI put a set of these in some old tower speakers and they really brought the mid range to where it needed to be. The grs 8pf-8 wont go crazy low or super high so keep that in mind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Sound / EPI 201The original woofers in my EPI 201s finally gave up. I could not find the specs for that woofer and decided to try these. The 201 has 2 woofers per cabinet but I bought only 1 each in order to give them a try. The second failed woofer was left in place.Very happy with the sound after using them for 3 months. Great mid-bass as others have noted but they may not extend quite as low as the originals on material such as organ pedal notes. We'll see when I install 2 more, as I intend to do given the sound quality and price.Will be making adjustments to account for the 1.8 kHz crossover point.Build quality was fine on the 2 I have now... Great deal!Will be loo

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent replacement speakers!GRS 8PF... excellent product, excellent price, excellent sound!! Re-fitted some MicroAcoustic speakers (Bose 301 copies) circa 1979, they sound awesome with good bass response and full midrange. Simple installation as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have used these several times*****If you use these in virtually anything sealed, approx 1cu.ft+ per woofer you will be happy not just satisfied. I started using these about 2 years ago in a pair of AR m3 sealed 8". There was nothing wrong with ther factory AR poly 8" I just knew the speaker had more potential. This GRS "paper" 8 set it off,Great mid bass.Then built some 3 way towers with a single GRS 8 per cabinet sealed of course and they rocked from 750hz down. Just got some Dante cabs with bad drivers. 3/4 high density particle board with dual 8" cutouts 3 way. using 2 of these paper 8's celestion mid and vifa tweet and I know they will sound fabulous.I've tried the poly version and although it may "play" a little lower it is no trade off for the mid bass of these "paper" cones.I like them so much that I spent an hour in storage looking for the AR poly 8" so that I could reuse these myself when I recently sold the AR's.I have used the paper and poly 8's and 12's from GRS and the paper cone is the hands down winner.I like Parts express.

GRS 8PF-8 8" Paper Cone Foam Surround Woofer

are the grs-8PF-8 8 inch speakers good for a small pa speaker replacement

Asked by: corny
Probably not. PA and musical instrument speakers have a higher SPL rating than home audio speakers such as the GRS. This means that it will not play nearly as loud as the original speaker, possibly making the high frequency speaker sound over-bearing. Not what you want! Go with a pro-audio type woofer.

How would this woofer perform as mid duty? I have a 12" goldwood woofer that I was planning on using for the lows and I have a few of these sitting around and was wondering if they would work.

Asked by: Jinonyx
Usually an 8" speaker will only play conservatively up to about 2,000 Hz before it starts to beam. If you pick a tweeter that will safely cross this low it should not be a problem.

Would these work in an open baffle situation? The q values tell me it would, and Im not very concerned with the Xmax because they'll be used with a bandpass

Asked by: dkward00
Yes these will work for an open baffle application.

Could these work in a 2-way system

I would like to build some budget speakers for my garage and I was wondering if these would work in a woofer/tweeter type system, if so, what would be the x-over point for the tweeter?
Asked by: safeTguy
These could work as a two way assuming your tweeter can cross over low enough. I cannot recommend a crossover point without knowing which tweeter you plan on using.

How about 2 per 1.77 cu.ft. sealed enclosure?

My woofer airspace is 1.77 cu.ft. Sealed box not including the woofers themselves or "stuffing".I Was considering these or the Dayton classic 8" 295-310 for sealed double woofer duty? Thanks.
Asked by: Doofus
The GRS would be better suited for a sealed enclosure. You can expect in room response into the upper 30's/lower 40's relatively easily.

Is the sealed Optimum Cabinet Size empty or with fill material?

Asked by: alrightkid
The sealed cabinet sizes are modeled using typical fill which is roughly a half pound of stuffing per cubic foot of volume.
