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

Is this the woofer used in the meadowlark K2 speakers? I are these P17' s. Trying to repair my blown woofer.

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!
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?
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 .
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.

Does one SD215-PR have enough Xmech to use with this?
I am building a small subwoofer in a ~0.41 cu. ft. box and planning on using a 100 watt plate amp. Would this woofer overpower a single SD215-PR? If I have to, I can add a second SD215-PR and use the SA70. Can you offer any help?Thanks,Spencer
One passive will be enough for this application. I would recommend adding about 25 grams of weight to the passive for optimal tuning in that enclosure.
