HiVi M6N 6" Aluminum/Magnesium Midbass

A shielded magnet structure allows the HiVi M6N to be incorporated easily into audio/video speaker applications. 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 is rated 4.5625 out of 5 by 16.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replace Sony 6.5"These speakers have a really crisp sound we updated an old pair of Sony Bookshelf units, also added a Port Tube 1-1/8" ID x 6-1/2" L Flared PE Part #: 260-472. they sound great and the Port tube really extends the base feel. Thinking about using several of these in a muliti speaker project some day....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Pleased!I am using these in a 2-way setup, in a small (.25 cuft) sealed enclosure. They sound very good. Custom built xover at 2500hz with help from PE. Very clean and i was surprised at the amount of bass. Combined with the Usher tweeter they reproduce much clearer sound than the Bose 301's i was using. I only wish i had used 2 of them in each speaker for increased bass. Not necessary, but i would be interested to hear the difference. They perform very well even when pushed hard. At this price point these would be hard to beat!

HiVi M6N 6" Aluminum/Magnesium Midbass

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.

I want to put a HiVi M6N into a Realistic Minimus-5 2 way speakers with 6" woofer & peizo cermaic tweeter horn. The frequency response: 100-20k Hz, with 15 watts at 8 ohms. Outside dimensions: 12" x 9" x 6 1/2". Is this a good choice? Suggestions?

Asked by: jimchandler63
The volume is a bit on the small side for this woofer assuming the original cabinet is vented. A better choice would be the Dayton Classic 6-1/2", but we will need a few more details in order to help better.

I am wondering how 4 of these would work crossed over at 3500 hz with an Eminence APT 200 tweeter would sound. My goal is to make a high output center channel. Will these work fine crossed at 3500hz? I already have the horn (which sounds great) Thanks

Asked by: Andrew1996
Crossing these at 3,500 Hz should not be a problem. With four woofers wired series/parallel you will still likely need an L-pad on the horn tweeter but this will have to be determined by listening tests.
