Parts Express 12" Square Frame Paper Cone Woofer Black is rated 4.1429 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly right!When a speaker cone came loose in my Sherwood towers, I tried to find a replacement woofer locally. No cigar. A call to Parts Express and in a few days, I had an exact replacement for half the price I expected...and the holes matched up perfectly!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the priceI have a pair of old Relistic speakers that are from Radio Shack and these speakers sounds better than the original very happy with them

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome soundI bought these speakers about a month ago, to replace my blown woofers in my Pioneer towers. These speakers sound better than the originals, and I am happily cranking my music up once again. I must admit that I'm impressed by the quality, and loved the low price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent budget speakersI put these 12" Square Frame Paper Cone Woofers in an old set of Fisher cabinets which I first reinforced with 1/2 inch MDF and cross braces. I also used the GM-65/8 sealed back midrange units and Phenolic Ring Tweeters for which I fabricated removable mounting plates, and then used a pair of dusty old RS 1st order passive crossovers (x-over@ 800Hz & 5000Hz), and a Dayton SUB-1200 subwoofer. I ended up with an excellent sounding budget system which will definitely tide me over until I might get the chance to build something even better. Although not fully broken in yet, they're a huge improvement over my JBL N26II bookshelf speakers (as expected). The only con is that now I just want to sit in my Lazyboy listening to music most of the time (not really much of a con I guess). Thanks for the great product selection and prompt shipping Parts Express. I'll beback.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Almost PerfectThese were almost perfect for my Pioneer 3 Way system, however they do not have the punch the the Pioneer speakers did. The work well, and fit well, but do not sound as good.

Parts Express 12" Square Frame Paper Cone Woofer Black

I have Advent A4 speakers and would like to replace the woofers. They are not round, not square but Octogonal. 12.5" measuring diagonally from each octogonal point; 11.5" diagonally from each of the 4 screw holes. Will a 12" square (part #290-916) work?

I have a Realistic Optimus-50 High-Compliance woofer that needs to be replaced, the frequency response on my speaker is 50-20,000 Hz, your speaker frequency response is 35-3,000 Hz, will that make a diference is sound quality.

Asked by: Jadd
The enclosure will determine the low end of the response and the upper end will be helped with the mids and tweeters in the enclosure. This woofer should work perfectly fine for that application.

For optimum mid bass response & elimination of port noise how large should the enclosure & port be?

how long & wide should the port be?
Asked by: kerry789
For mid-bass application larger enclosure, no port. Say, 2-3 cu feet [assuming you are making a 2 or 3-way box]. For a little more punch and lower bass response, add a 2" x 5-6" port tube. I use PVC tubing glued in and sometimes you can find PVC fittings with flanges. For large sub woofers I have used toilet flanges. They are cheap and look cool .

What is the diameter across mounting holes? Thanks.

Asked by: Clint
you will have to measure as the standard holes are more than 11 and less than 12 in, large flange is for cosmetic reasons on a less expensive woofer and may fall outside the usual standards,also cut the hole for a snug fit.
