Product Details

Peerless 830860 5-1/4" PPB Cone HDS Woofer

The Peerless High Definition Sound (HDS) Series offers high-quality solutions for multi-way speaker systems employing vented box alignments. A powerful ferrite magnet system is coupled to a finite element analysis-designed suspension system, containing a linear spider design and rubber surround. The motor incorporates an aluminum shorting ring that reduces coil inductance, extending frequency response performance and reducing second harmonic distortion. A cast aluminum basket provides high structural rigidity, heat-sinking capacity for the motor, and additional ventilation under the spider that in combination with a vented cone neck reduces air compression effects. Peerless developed the proprietary and highly advanced Polypropylene Black (PPB) cone material used in the HDS PPB Series, creating a stiff but still dampened cone that remains stable even under the greatest sound pressures.

Peerless 830860 5-1/4" PPB Cone HDS Woofer
Peerless 830860 5-1/4" PPB Cone HDS Woofer is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Remember Scanspeak, they made theseAs in the title, the arrangement by Peerless was Scanspeak would build this series in order for the Engineers to buy back their company. With all of Peerless production now in China, this is your one chance to get a high quality Danish speaker (stamped on the rear). The quality of the sound is detailed, but without the attack most small woofers have. I converted the woofer (very bright) in my Fluance SX6 with this woofer and I would put it up against anyone's speakers in the $400 price range. Don't miss the opportunity, because when they're gone, they're gone forever.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from easy to use woofer - quite good soundI'm sure there are other woofers out there with more exciting sound but this unit has a very flat and predictable midrange which makes it very easy to work with. I used this woofer in a series crossover (rather than the usual parallel type). If you use them with a subwoofer and a good tweeter you'll get a nice relaxed result - I've used the Vifa XT25 and more recently the SB Acoustics SB26STAC-C000-4 tweeter to good effect. Possibly a good woofer for the first time speaker designer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very PleasedBought 6 to build a center, and two towers. Paired them with a Tang Band 25-1719S 1" Ceramic Dome Tweeter crossed at 2500hz, and all i gotta say is wow. Unexpectedly low notes from these little 5.25"s, and the tweeter gives some pretty awesome highs. these woofer are defiantly worth your consideration in your next build.

Peerless 830860 5-1/4" PPB Cone HDS Woofer


I experiment with speakers a lot. My 4th project in recent months is 4 each 8 ohm GRS speakers.A Dayton factory made 2.5 k crossover and the phenolic ring tweeters.I plan to later replace the GRS with these. So if I wire the GRS ( Or these) parallel I set 4 ohms for the low range. The tweeter is 8 ohms.The 2.5 K crossover has a choice plug for 4 or 8 ohms. Will there be a problem? Should I get a pair of 4 ohm tweeters? I use extra drivers on other projects. Should I get a 3 K crossover?
Asked by: clod
As you are an avid DIYer - you should definitely experiment with your own crossovers - then the impedance won't matter... You can use a crossover calculator to get the values for the parts you need. As for choosing the crossover point - here's a easy rule of thumb. For simple crossovers - double the low end range of the tweeter. So if a tweeter claims 1500hz as the bottom of it's range - a good crossover point would be 3000hz. Then you need a woofer to go with that. Half the high end of the woofers response. So if the woofer goes up to 6000, then 3000 would be a great spot for it as well. These are very general guidelines - but can get you into the ballpark of matching drivers and determining general crossover points. As an experimenting DIYer - you should have some fun with this. I keep a pile of capacitors and inductors around for experimentation, along with a few L-pads to compensate for the usual higher efficiency of the tweeter... Experimenting helps and once you find the right values - you can use poly caps and air coils... Listen to you favorite music tracks and note the difference when you make changes - this is what we call "voicing" a speaker. Have fun.
