Product Details

Peerless 830984 2-1/2" Full Range Woofer

Tymphany/Peerless full range drivers set the standard for quality audio in products including flat panel televisions and sound bars, MP3 and cell phone docking stations, and multimedia PCs. With their high power handling, smooth, even dispersion, and low distortion, the Peerless 2-1/2" full range drivers can be paired with the Tymphany LAT250 for great bass performance. A neodymium motor structure and double-venting system keeps dynamic range intact, as the transducer can handle more power and dissipate excess heat efficiently. An anodized aluminum dome provides superior sound dispersion and off-axis response. A semi-progressive surround reduces distortion, especially at high output through long excursion. The driver's direct connected dome dust cap (attached to the magnet system voice coil) improves dispersion at high frequencies, providing superior sound at the higher frequencies. The inserted copper cap on the pole piece ensures control of the system impedance, thereby extending the upper frequency range.

Peerless 830984 2-1/2" Full Range Woofer
Peerless 830984 2-1/2" Full Range Woofer is rated 4.8333 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value full range driverI am very pleased with the performance of the Peerless 830984, for the size (2.5") the sound it produces in a sealed chamber is excellent, full range and very clear. I have tried several other speakers in the same application and their performance was not nearly as impressive.The unit is very well engineered with a robust housing with a large well shielded rare earth magnet.We will be using this driver in a new consumer audio product we are developing.Cheers,Dave

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little speakerThis Speaker was the only one I find that I could mount into the dash area factory mounts. I had to modify the mounting holes about 1/8 of an inch, but they work like a dream. The speakers bring a full range of sound up to your head. I had planed to connect a volume adjustment to them, but that was un-needed. I connected them, watching the polarity to the front door speakers. That with the balance and fader made simple to adjust the sweet spot.Great value, shipping was easy and fast.Picture shows the install, the left side is finished. I wanted to know the right side was functioning before mounting and installing the grill cover.Ralph

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome speakerI used the Peerless 830984 in the dash of my 2012 Nissan Frontier as replacement speakers for the paper ones from factory. The truck came with a Rockfor Fosgate system and sounded decent. When I installed the Peerless speakers, the sound came alive!Great speakers for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Replacement For Fender Passport SystemI used these drivers to replace the mid-tweet drivers in the Fender PD-150 Passport System (uses a 5.25 woofer, with no XO on it, and 2 - 2.5" drivers at different angles, wired in series - assuming 4 ohm drivers - with only a 33 uF cap.) I ended up with a different impedance than the stock configuration so I swapped out the 33 uF electrolytic cap for 13 uF worth of Mylars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mid - High RangePriced and sized right. My BABY ADVENT II speakers had burnt speakers. My space is very live, so I was looking for a fatter mid. With original filter - voila! Not metalic sounding - rich and uncolored as Kloss intended.

Hello, I'm considering upgrading my bose souddock series 1 drivers. I'm wondering if these would fit in the enclosure. 

Asked by: Walwis
Unfortunately we do not have a cross reference available for this type of thing. You can pull up the spec sheets for these drivers on our website and compare dimensions for the Bose you have to see if they will be close or not.

size of speaker

is the 2-1/2'' for the speaker itself or does that include the speaker frame?
Asked by: hockeyfan60
Hi. From the description:Dimensions: Overall diameter 2.75" (3.35" diagonally ear-to-ear), Cutout diameter 2.42", Depth 2.15".You can see by the cutout diameter that it's a 2.5" diameter diaphragm.Hope this helps.

7 Watts Rms?

The 7rms power handling versus 60 watts max seems like a huge difference. Is this correct?
Asked by: boomer22
Power handling can be measured with a wide variety of methods, producing very different results depending upon exactly how the measurement is taken. 7 watts RMS sounds very reasonable for this kind of driver, however, the maximum power handling should always be taken with a grain of salt. While the driver may be fully capable of handling 60 watts under a very specific set of circumstances, I would not incorporate this driver into a design with 60 watts as a goal for normal operation. To state this in very broad and general terms, the RMS wattage is typically a sensible rating for normal use and design, where peak wattage is not nearly as useful from a pragmatic design standpoint. Actual peak power handling should normally be around twice the RMS, so perhaps 15 watts would be a more realistic peak figure for this driver.
