Product Details

Peerless 830874 6-1/2" 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 830874 6-1/2" PPB Cone HDS Woofer
Peerless 830874 6-1/2" PPB Cone HDS Woofer is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Built 2 Bookshelf SpeakersPlaced each in 0.52ft^3 tuned to 48Hz with 2" ports and sound damped the box walls. It plays pretty much everything i throw at it, rock, rap, edm etc... from what i can describe it in words, smooth mids and tight semi deep bass that can shake the room, practically sounds like there's a subwoofer in the room but there isn't

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surpisingly good, transparent mids/bassI bought the Dayton B652's for $30 and dropped these in to replace the woofers as my first DIY speaker mod/project if you can call it that. Took 5 minutes of "work", almost seems unfair to think I paid $130 and spent 5 minutes of time for the dynamic & warm sound that comes out of these speakers. I'm quite familiar with what high-end sound is supposed to be, and while the highs are somewhat recessed, and there is an audible bump in the mids (probably need a lower crossover freq), the resolution, dynamics, and warmth are very much there. Great sound for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for 2 way,surrounds, desk topsI'm using this driver as a woofer in a 2 way system with a Seas Prestige 27TDF as the tweeter.This is one of those drivers that has super detail and a flat response all the way to near 3000hz. It's usable low end stops at about 50Hz in a .48 cu.ft. sealed enclosure.At this price you'd have to buy a much more expensive driver to equal it's performance.The factory specs are not real accurate. I bought two drivers and they measure the same but they don't match factory specs. It only means you'll have to modify the X-over components to get to the correct x-over points to match the Tweeter.This Peerless driver has a higher power rating than it's cousin with the Nomex cone material. 50 watts IEA vs 30 for the Nomex. The power response is excellent too. Much more cone travel than the listed 5.5mm.The build quality is A-1 as are the materials.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cream of the cropThe best 6 1/2 inch driver I've found in over 30 years of working with loudspeakers. Flat respons, smooth hi-end rolloff, and low distortion. Clean natural sound both in the bass and mid-range. All this even with it's value pricing.

I have a Pinnacle P-6.3 Floor standing speaker with a blown 6-1/2" woofer. Would this speaker work as a replacement?

Asked by: acbadlam
We do not have a cross reference available for this type of thing. Please contact our tech support for more help with this question, or 800-338-0531 x1.

Would the Peerless 830874 driver be suitable for use in your .25 curved cabinets? If so would ported or sealed give better performance?

If ported is better, port suggestions?
Asked by: B man
In that volume you will want to stay sealed. This will provide in room response into the upper 40's.

Cross Over Point

I am thinking 2nd order around 3k paired with a tweet that is smooth down to around 4 . I am thinking these would be a great fit. ideas?
Asked by: Fergastubbs
The crossover point for a given speaker can only be determined by modeling the crossover with a chosen tweeter. These Peerless woofers have very smooth natural rolloffs and that makes them very easy to work with in regard to crossover slopes. Fine a tweeter you would like to pair with it and at that point a crossover point can be determined.
