Peerless 830656 5-1/4" Paper Cone SDS Woofer
Peerless 830656 5-1/4" Paper Cone SDS Woofer is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 10.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peeerless 5.25I mixed this with a Tang Band 5.,25 in a 4 ft tower and used the Dayton silk dome tweeter.The crossover came from a Polk tower. It is difficult to tell the sound from the Tang Band but I like them together, I had GRS 5.25s in the bottom holes.This sounds better. I may order a pair later to make more speakers. I get good sound for my money with this Peerless.They look good too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Good Midbass DriverI had to replace the 4 blown mids in my M&K S1B's and the original were no where to be found. Having studied the parameters of all the 5.25 drivers Ei could find I settled on these. Many had roll off anomolies I did not prefer, but these rolled off pretty clean. The power handling was good for its size, as was the rated SPL. The bolt pattern had to be modified to fit but that was expected. The upper end roll off was prefictably smooth around 5khzThe sound from these was unexpectably good! Very smooth as the factory graph suggested, no peaking problem, just good honest audio report. These are some of the better built drivers by Peerless, despite the stamped frames.My only issue is that the low end of 62 hz seemed a bit anemic- my crossover was hope to be kept at 100 or less hertz but that was just to low. Once I opted for 150~200hz xover then these 5.25" started to "bloom" and not strain. If used in the higher 200hz xover rabge these are incredible midbass units capable of good power handling and dynamic output!The finish is very goo as are the fully inverted cones. Don't miss getting this driver for good mid bass duty!

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

I have one of these in a center channel as a sub, problem is, my volume is .407 ft3. Can I tune this using 2 small ports? or just one?

Asked by: hannielhrach
You can use one or two and get the same result. With one I would recommend 1.5" diameter and 4" long for a tuning frequency of 47 Hz. With two you will need 1" diameter and 3.7" long for the same tuning frequency.

Mixing 5.25 drivers?

I just installed the Tang Band 5.25 drivers ( The 31 dollar ones) In an enclosure I built and used with Dayton classic and GRS speakers.All 5.25 size. I move them around as I build new enclosures. This one is 4 ft tall x 15 inch deep x 8 inch wide. My version of a transmission line.Ported out the bottom. So I was thinking of taking the GRS pair out of the lower holes and putting this 19 dollar Peerless in as both Tang Band and this is 8 ohms.Besides it sounds pretty good with the 6 dollar GRS pairs in the lower holes now. What is your thoughts? If it does not satisfy I can always build more enclosures and move the Peerless .I experiment a lot.
Asked by: clod
I think these will provide a good overall responce in your boxes, but likely not the same as your Tangs. If you built your boxes based on the Theil specs for the Tangs then another speaker is operating in a less ideal environment.These are awesome for the cost and will play well in a good box.

Watts in series or parallel?

I see this is rated at 60 watts RMS. If I wire two parallel. How many watts will the pair handle? Or if I wire the two in series.How many watts will the two take?
Asked by: clod
With two drivers, you get to double the power handling.'nuff said. ;)The question actually becomes what your amplifier will do when presented with a 4 or 16 ohm load. Another important question is what you need such wattage for anyway... Two of these will be about 90 db/W efficient... I expect most of your listening will be around 1.5 watts or, if you want to rock-out like a teenager, about 12 watts... I'm using, as my L and R channels, a pair of 15W RMS single driver speakers and they do everything I need them to.

Will this work for car audio?

I have a 1999 Jeep Cherokee and want to replace the rear 5 1/4's with something that reaches into the lower frequencies but of course it will just be mounted in the ceiling, no box or anything...will it suffice?
Asked by: Jordy
Okay so there are a few things to say first off. Most speakers will be adequate as car speakers if they are in the proper enclosure, and when using home speakers in car audio, you can almost always expect a better sound, but only if the speaker is treated properly.That being said, a few things with this speaker are to be taken into account. First off, this speaker probably has a higher wattage rating, so you will be able to give it more than the last speaker you had installed. Also, it has a higher ohmage, so it will only experience about half the watts an average car speaker will, meaning it will take 100 watts at 8ohms which is like 200 at 4ohms, so it will hog more watts, but it's all good. And seeing as most car speakers are mounted by only four screws, and this speaker needs six, you will have to consider either drilling into the car, or drilling into the speaker for a better way to mount to the car. Also, consider a buying a few other styles for sound matching. Cheap is fine. I am linking a few speakers of the same size and relative performance. Best of luck!
