Product Details

HiVi D10.8 10" Poly Cone Woofer

The HiVi D10.8 represents a design in which the voice coil is positioned over an undercut central pole piece with a large thermally stabilized neodymium magnet at the bottom and a high energy ceramic magnet on the top. A specially shaped, CNC machined steel cup completes the magnetic structure from the outside, creating a shielded magnet system with symmetrical flux density distribution along the gap. The long-throw voice coil experiences a symmetric driving force that substantially decreases inductance and back electromotive force modulations. The magnet structure is optimized using Finite Element Analysis technique, resulting in a radical improvement of driver linearity. The cone has a shallow, high integrity structure that is extremely rigid and dynamically stable. The large voice coil diameter allows for a more uniform cone movement, delivering clear and accurate reproduction. The vented motor design and high temperature rated voice coil provide a dramatic increase in power handling. D10.8 is an excellent woofer for high power "no compromise" audiophile systems and control monitors. It also may be used as a subwoofer in various configurations.

HiVi D10.8 10" Poly Cone Woofer
HiVi D10.8 10" Poly Cone Woofer is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from PhenomenalModels beautifully in a t-line, and performance matches the modeling. 100 inch line, with a 7:1 taper ratio in a 3 way cab, means your left and right channels will have full subwoofer performance, but the musicality and fidelity of a completely high end system. Now with another separate sub, your system acts as if it has 3 subs, which is PHENOMENAL!!! You now have the equivalent of the live performance venue or recording studio, in your own living room. I have a professional degree, I am an advanced hobbyist, and an amateur musician.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Take these drivers very seriously.I'm running 4 of these with the new Vifa/Peerless NE series 7" midwoofers and a pair of ScanSpeak Illuminator Tweeters. The bass is truly exceptional, tight, controlled, accurate and very punchy. I'm running them with an NHT X2 crossover to do a little bass EQ and a Soundstream DA-1 power amplifier. Some of the most musical bass I've ever heard. Just blows away my Aerial 10T's.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from VERY nice for the moneyLow end won't get past these guys. They are tight and crisp,ZZ Top sounds insane. Matched them with Vifa midrange and tweeter and bi-amped them, top dollar 3 way speakers without breaking the bank.

HiVi D10.8 10" Poly Cone Woofer

Is this a good replacement driver to a Mordaunt-Short Aviano 7 subwoofer?

Asked by: razec

How will HiVi D10.8 10" Poly Cone Woofer work in a two way system, 1.6 cu.ft. sealed enclosure crossed at 1.5K ,18 Db per Octive slope..?

Asked by: 604E
Even though the published frequency response claims extension to 2,300 Hz, the frequency response graph shows a peak at about 600 and then it drops above that. This woofer will work best in a three way with a dedicated mid crossed around 300-500 Hz.

Would these be an exact replacement for the DYNAUDIO 30D100XL drivers? We need to replace four old woofers in two Dynaudio M3a three-way active studio monitors?

Asked by: BEGE
Unfortunately we do not have a cross reference available for this type of thing. Please contact our tech support for more help with this question, or 800-338-0531 x1.

How would this do in a 1.4 to 1.5 foot sealed cabinet as far as freq response and sensitivity?

Asked by: ocezam
This will work well in that volume, reaching low 30's in room. Sensitivity will not change from what is published.
