HiVi M4N 4" Aluminum/Magnesium Midbass
HiVi M4N 4" Aluminum/Magnesium Midbass is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for an UpgradeI was looking to upgrade my old Fluance Audio 5.0 set that I had recently replaced with Polk Audio speakers when I came across this site. This was my first time doing a speaker upgrade like this so I looked very carefully at every speaker I could and finally decided these would be the best fit dimension wise. I only ordered two of them to begin with in case I didn't like them, but once I got them today and put them in the surround speakers boy was it well worth it. They fit perfectly, look awesome, and sound way better than stock speakers, can't wait until they fully break in. Now that I know these work with my application I have ordered 4 more of these and 2 of the HiVi M6N's to complete the upgrade. After hearing these I can't wait to get the rest of the speakers and hear the full set. If all goes well my dad will have a great Christmas this year! Thanks Parts Express for the extremely fast processing and shipping, loving my first experience here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good 4"Definitely a good 4" midbass. I used it in Wolf's Sophomore's project, and it worked beautifully. It's a nice, detailed driver, and the vocals are indeed special. These would be a great driver to use for a center channel as well in a MTM design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best 4" You Can BuyI've used both the M-A and M-N and both series are superb drivers, but this M4N was added as a replacement driver in my DIY project over a poly woofer and simply out shined it. I will use this exclusively in the future for all of my small speaker projects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little speaker!These little speakers perform really well. I pumped them up to about 50 watts with lots of bass and the sound was really clean.Also, they are a very good value.

Can I use this as a single speaker/full range without a tweeter?

I'd like to put it in the man cave with a little amp and a pedal-power generator. I've got small sealed boxes and haven't built a speaker system yet. I've modified plenty and played with car audio but never built a crossover by hand (I have used # 260-210 in a modding project).
Asked by: Erichthinks
You could but you will see some sort of drop off above 8000hz, how crucial that will be for your listening is up to you to decide.

What would be a good sealed enclosure volume?

Asked by: bwarren
.17 cubic feet for an F3 of 71hz... You can click on the speaker building tab up top, then the woofer selection guide on the right to see ported and sealed options for many drivers available on PE.

3 way enclosure

i'm trying to design a 3 way system using 6 of these drivers, but i'm having trouble trying to work out an optimum enclosure, sealed or vented. ideally i would have 2 of them as mids in a sealed enclosure (if possible) and 4 as woofers in a vented enclosure. i checked out the manufacturer's specs and they recommend a 4L box, but they don't specify vented or sealed. any thoughts? any help would be appreciated
Asked by: jmitts
too many same size drivers have a comb effect and frequency dips and peaks,,,, use 1 good tweeter the 4in for good mid bass , mid range and the woofer a ten or 12 in with cost similar to the combined 4 drivers a good pre assembled x'over from PExpress,, stuff it seal or port it and in the long run you will thank me for changing your idea from a pa column in the gym to home thunder with a good sound image ALWAY'S BEAR IN MIND , THEIR ARE COUNT LESS WAY'S TO DIY AUDIO AND I ALWAY'S CONSULT MY DEAF CAT![JUST KIDDING]

Hello, Would like to build 2 tower speakers at 4ohm . Each tower using eight or ten M4N mids and one TN25 for the highs.  I would also like to use the Dayton BPA-386 for the crossover.  Would this be a good set up? Any advice please. Thank you.

Asked by: LittleG
Eight of those drivers in series/parallel will yield a 4 ohm load so this is the number I would stick with. The TN25 will work above 3,500 Hz although I am not familiar with that Dayton crossover model.
