Product Details

Peerless 830946 6-1/2" Paper Cone Woofer Speaker 4 Ohm

A new addition to the SLS Series of speakers, the Peerless 830946 6-1/2" woofer features a paper cone, wide rubber half-roll surround, and hefty ceramic ferrite magnet with distortion-reducing aluminum shorting ring. Audio is reproduced with accuracy and detail.

The speaker's distinctively sculpted truncated steel frame facilitates close driver spacing or a narrower mounting baffle, and its extensive under-spider venting promotes voice coil cooling for reduced power compression and improved long term reliability. The 830946 will perform superbly as a dedicated low-mid bass driver, as well as delivering solid output when used as a compact subwoofer.

Peerless 830946 6-1/2" Paper Cone Woofer Speaker 4 Ohm
Peerless 830946 6-1/2" Paper Cone Woofer Speaker 4 Ohm is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from solara great rear deck fillI bought these to add some rear fill in a Toyota solara. Just running off a Sony CD player they sounded amazing. Lots of bass for a great sq sound. I have owned image dynamics 8" s . The sq is really good for being free air in the trunk with about 22 watts RMS. I plan on amplifying them and debating on even running my two 8s. They are not totally broke in but I am sure with time they will even play lower. Used a little rammat and tamed the vibrations down. Definitely will fill out a modest sq system.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bass and mid bass. Definitely not a subRunning these in a front door panel. Definitely hits hard so make sure to secure properly. I had to fiberglass the door panels to keep them under control.Very nice for what they are. Don't ask too low of them and you will not be disappointed.DO NOT RUN OVER 800Hz. They will complain.

Peerless 830946 6-1/2" Paper Cone Woofer Speaker 4 Ohm

thinking on using this in the .23 cubic foot knock down enclosure. what size vent would it take to get the f3 stated?

Asked by: 707mike
The port required for these numbers would have to be external, unless you wanted to use passive radiators. The required port size for this F3 is 2" diameter and 19" long.If you wanted to use a pair of the 295-498 passive radiators, you could add 50 grams to each and get the same results as well.

I am thinking of using this woofer with the Fountek FE85 full range driver in a compact stand mount design...  The woofer would be side firing... Could i run the Peerless full range and high pass the Fountek at 800hz?  Bad idea side firing at this FR?

Asked by: Henk
I generally wouldn't recommend crossing a side firing woofer over much above 250 Hz, although the Fountek will handle a crossover point this low. I would consider just dropping the crossover point a bit and this should work. The Fountek will need to be in its own chamber as well.

In a .35 cu ft enclosure with one of these drivers and a 1.5" port that is 10" in length tunes the box to 35 hz. Will a single flared 1.5" port have excessive port turbulence in this scenario?  Thanks!

Asked by: RussD964
With anything more than about 30 watts of power the port noise will more than likely be audible.

can i use this woofer as a subwoofer?

Asked by: javz
Technically you can use any woofer as a subwoofer but whether it will work well or not depends on the application in question. This has decent Xmax and power handling, but it also has a high Fs and requires a very small vented box which means it will not be very good below about 60 Hz. This would not be my first choice for a subwoofer in this size.

Running as a subwoofer in a car.

My question is for the Peerless 830946 6-1/2" Paper Cone Woofer Speaker 4 Ohm .How well will it perform in a ported box single chamber tuned to 37 Hz or 35 Hz or 33 Hz .Running 3 of them at about 100 -150 RMS .Crossed over at 20 Hz - 80 Hz .
Asked by: Home Made
These actually look very good in this application. With a volume of 1.57 cubic feet (12"H x 24"W x 13"D externally using 3/4" material), a slot port that is 10.5" H and 1" W will be ideal. The different port lengths below illustrate the tuning frequencies.13" L = 37 Hz tune15" L = 35 Hz tune17" L = 33 Hz tuneThe higher the tune the more output you will get, the lower, the more low end you will get. If you listen to a lot of music with frequencies in the low 30's like rap or hip hop I recommend the lower tune so the woofers are better loaded. If you listen to country/rock type music, the higher tune will be fine.
