The driver may be used in a small closed box as a midrange unit in a 3-way system and the good extension (50 Hz) in a vented enclosure allows for use in a 2-way, two-driver or MTM configured system.

HiVi M6N 6" Aluminum/Magnesium Midbass
HiVi M6N 6" Aluminum/Magnesium Midbass is rated 4.5789 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great as a midrangeUsed this speaker as a midrange speaker on my 3 way floor speakers. They sound great just as good as my Klipsch F3. Used the HiVi 8" as woofer and Tymphany 1" Textile Dome Tweeter. This is my first speaker build. The only reason I did not give it five stars I have nothing to compare them with yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from M6NWell what can I say about the M6N's, when combine with the PT2C-8's and the Dayton XO2W 3000Hz crossovers I am astounded by the sound the subtle sounds that are there but could not be heard by any speaker system I had in the past I can hear now I am transcended to another realm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great imaging and holographic sound!I just completed my speaker project and am quite thrilled with the HiVi's. These are electrostatic midtweeters crossed down to the HiVi 6" drivers. I couldn't find anything that could run with the imaging and accuracy of the electrostatics, so I tried these magnesium cones and it was a perfect match. The imaging is holographic. The piano sounds lifelike, and you can hear all the subtle overtones of each note. Voice is lifelike. They would match up excellently to any ribbon tweeter as well. The only caveats I would recommend is that the HiVis need an inductor to cross them down no higher than 5000hz, as they have a very shrill peak at the top end. Also, they are midbasses, not woofers. they need to be crossed down to a subwoofer at around 200-150hz or the bass will be seriously lacking. I made my speakers out of "8 inch" pine boards from home depot. Minimal damping material needed. All the best and God bless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Speaker upgrade for MTX AAL212One of the 4" mids on a set off AAL212's I picked up for cheap had a broken dust cap so I decided to up the size to a 6" and see how it turned out. It's a whole new level of brilliance and mid-bass to otherwise ok sounding speakers. Definitely recommend these for a great price.

HiVi M6N 6" Aluminum/Magnesium Midbass

I have a little boston acoustics "subwoofer" with a 6" driver that has foam rot. It is a bandpass box with a sealed rear chamber and ported front chamber. Would this be a good replacement? A set of new foams is the same price as this driver is.

These are the drivers that seem to be the best in the price point. What is the volume displaced by the driver? 

Asked by: FellCrustacean8
This woofer displaces 0.028 cubic feet.

Hello, I am an owner of these speakers, and was wondering if there is a way to get more bass from them.  I have a 1" x 5" bass port and .72 cu ft box.  Would either widening the port or adding a second HiVi woofer help extend the bass response?  Thanks.

Asked by: Frankenspeaker
Right now you have two issues; the port size is far too small so you are essentially "choking" the output of the woofer. It is also tuned far too low as it is now (about 22 Hz) which will take a way a lot of the perceived bass response you should be getting. I would recommend replacing the port with a 2" diameter, 5" long port to bring the tuning frequency up to about 42 Hz. Adding a second woofer will not help with extension but it will help with output. You would need more airspace to make this worthwhile though.

Hello everyone and thank you for your help. I would like to use two drivers per speaker box and was wondering what size difference this would make in the enclosure?   Also, will a 1 1/8" x 6.5" bass port work? Thanks!      

Asked by: Audiophileforever
The enclosure volume will double if you add a second woofer. That port is on the small side for a pair of these. In the recommended vented volume, I would use a 2.5" diameter, 3.5" long port for a tuning frequency of 45 Hz.

Trying to figure out if this will fit in my Acoustic Research M4 woofer.This is a older model. Or what speaker would you recommend for replacement. Thank you Chris

The ideal sealed volume is listed as .23 cu ft.  Does the box need to be built oversized to account for the amount displaced by the speaker itself?  If so, how much additional volume? Thanks

Asked by: AbsoluterockEr
You could build the box to 0.25 or so to make up for it, but the woofer displacement will have almost no affect on the audible performance in a sealed box.
