Product Details

Peerless 830991 5-1/4" GFC 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. The Glass-Fibre Composite (GFC) cone offers a unique acoustic and visual experience.

Peerless 830991 5-1/4" GFC Cone HDS Woofer
Peerless 830991 5-1/4" GFC Cone HDS Woofer is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive bassI put this in a Creative subwoofer that meets the Parts Express enclosure recommendation almost exactly. It's very robust and musical down to about 50hz and goes lower but drops off pretty quickly. This would make a very impressive bookshelf two-way in a small package.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding if you have patienceIt drove me crazy when I first got it because it had a shrilly sound. I screamed for awhile until I broke it in (and it does take a while). I changed the baffle and moved it to a stand alone mid woofer, used with my Morel 408 tweeters. After months of listening to it get better and better, I realized this speaker really likessignificant power, no matter what the stats say. I have these two running together off a Marantz 90 watt amps and they are outstanding now. It can reproduce not only outstanding music, but on my fronts now, it is outstanding with the the surround for movies. Better than plastic, paper or metal.

Peerless 830991 5-1/4" GFC Cone HDS Woofer

I am planning to fit this into a ported box that is about .27 ft3. This is considerably smaller than the recommended .36 ft3. What would be the recommended length is using a 1" flared port ? thanks

Asked by: bwmac
A 1" dual flared port would only need to be 3" long for a tuning frequency of 52 Hz.
