Peerless 830656 5-1/4" Paper Cone SDS Woofer is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good.I bought these to replace the four on my rear deck of my 00 750il. They fit fine. I still need more power to get a quality sound. I will be changing my amp next.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent replacement.i brought these speakers for my wife's 2001 740il rear deck. The originals were rotted out. if you know anything about the E38, it is hard to find aftermarket subs to fit the rear deck. i just had to drill new holes in the deck and use speaker gasket tape to help with a better seal. what a surprise when i fired the system up. the bass response was excellent. Don't need a box in the trunk now. For the price you can't beat these.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the best choise for E38 bmwThis is not what you expect to hear from the rear deck of E38 BMW. Ofcourse you get what you pay for (original are $100 each), but this specific speakers CAN NOT substitute OEM rear deck speackers on this car at all. Not too much problems with installing as mentioned in previous reviews, took me 2 hours to change all of them, but will keep looking for something better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would recommend these Woofers, However..If you are going to be installing these in the rear desk of a BMW E38, be prepared to cut the deck (4 times) to fit these speakers of which do not fit OEM. Keep in mind there is limited space to work on the rear deck, unless you plan on removing the rear deck, which is a big job in itself! I should have contacted parts-express first and let them tell me what fits E38 OEM. They are not exactly 5 1/4 and have a unique baffle hole.. I chose not to cut anything at all and built a small bridge for the speaker covers so not as to have the speaker covers make contact with speakers.. I hope this helps!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding speaker for the money!Bought 4 of these for my 1998 BMW 750IL. Factory BMW replacement speakers are around $100 each. These are a near perfect fit in the rear subwoofer deck and approx $17 each. Original speakers had 4 screw holes, these have 6 that don't match original holes, just had to put 4 notches in the speakers (on mounting area) to accomodate the original screw locations and also put a thin foam seal under each speaker mount area. Anyway, these sound awsome compared to the original speakers that were in my car. Factory amp puts a max of 50 watts into each speaker. Great bass response and sound, very crisp. Mounted in the enclosure they are sealed, not ported. Quite an excellent value for the money and I am very satisfied. If you have a E38 BMW and want to replace your factory subs, these are great! You will be happy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well in BMW E38 DSP rear deck boxInstalled in my E38 BMW's rear deck. The OEM speakers are over $100 each, 4 were needed. I had to trim a very small amount of plastic to fit the center speakers. They work well, sound good. They add the bass that was missing.

Peerless 5.25 woofer 830656- Does this woofer have a vented pole piece? If not, is the dust cap porous or is it coated?

Asked by: grog68
This woofer does not have a vented pole piece or porous dust cap. It does have under spider venting however which can be seen in the pictures.

I have a TriTrix Transmission Line enclosure and 4 of these drivers.. Will they work well in this enclosure. I know that TriTrix designed for dayton but just want to know whether it can be used as a replacement and what kind of outcome to wait out of this

Asked by: markpen883
Without a proper way to model a transmission line enclosure I cannot say how well these will perform. With a higer Q and Fs the low bass will likely be boomier than using the Dayton drivers. It will probably not be ideal, but the only way to really know is to try it out and see if you like the results.

Would these work as replacements for a pair of Optimus Pro LX5's?

Asked by: iceren12
Unfortunately we do not have a direct replacement for the LX5 speakers. The cabinets will have to be modified for these to work properly.

Could I pair up the Vifa D19TD-05 tweeter with dual 5 1/4 Peerless 830656 . I wanted to try to make a center channel as hobby project, if spkrs are a good match. What X-over would I need. I have led tv. would I need shielded spkrs?

Asked by: gwkstyles
Yes these drivers will work well together. I would recommend the crossover in the link below, if you are using two woofers you will have to move the jumper on the crossover to the 4 ohm setting.http://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-xo2w-45k-2-way-speaker-crossover-4500-hz--260-148
