Product Details

Peerless 835025 6-1/2" Aluminum 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 aluminum cone combines high strength with low moving mass, offering superb transient response and sharp definition.

Peerless 835025 6-1/2" Aluminum Cone HDS Woofer
Peerless 835025 6-1/2" Aluminum Cone HDS Woofer is rated 4.75 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from very nice driverI matched this driver to a Morel MDT 22 crossed over at 2250 htz with a second order x-over custom made by myself.. The dimensions are roughly 14" deep, 20.5" tall and a front width of ~ 9.5 " and rear width of 6". The cabinets have a curve to them. Walls are 1"mdf. There is a .350" deep(?) inlay of Madagascar ebony that is ~ 3" wide. this abuts the peerless drivers nicely and the morels are recessed into the ebony. Rear firing tapered port. L-Pad on the tweeter to allow for tuning to which ever room it is set in. The speaker is tuned to 39.52 HZThese speakers are driven by a Topping TP 60 class T amp controlled by a Topping D3 DAC. The speaker cables are 12 ga. 4 wire fully shielded cables.The sound of the set up is extremely clean and detailed. I would love to have a little more bass, but this is a very good system for a small to medium size room. Jazz, Classical are wonderful. The details of a Spanish 12 string guitar are intoxicating and vivid.I plan on making a bigger brother pair to these using an 8" driver and perhaps a nicer morel tweeter.Loved this little project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why pay more?Built a set of 2 way monitors using this as a bas reflex loaded midwoofer in a 12L box together with an Aurum Cantus ribbon tweeter. The sound is very detailed and clean with good low end extension. If you want reproduction that is very true to the source these midwoofers are a true nobrainer. You might be able to do a little better but for a significantly larger outlay and other components in the system will probably be far worse bottlenecks than this driver, so think twice before spending more :)Technically this driver features almost everything you want from a high quality midbass. Useful thiel-small parameters that gives you a good range of cabinet sizes. Good mechanical construction with rather low mechanical loss (high Qms for an aluminum VC former). It also features an SD motor with faraday rings to kill distortion and keep down VC inductance while at the same time maintaining flat frequency response with "natural" roll off around where you would want to cross it anyway. All of this makes for a driver that is easy to get to perform very well which is ideal for DIY as well as for professionals. Well done Peerless. Keep it up!Needless to say that I am very happy for purchasing this driver and would recommend others to try it out if they want a reasonable cost driver with very little sound of its own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Suprisingly Good Results - My First 2 Way BuildThe enclosures came first and then I had some help from a PE tech to choose new drivers. I had spent considerable time and effort constructing new cabinets for an old set of Radio Shack polypropylene 6.5" woofers I bought in the 90s. Mounted them in the new enclosures expecting reasonable results, it was a very disappointing result. My enclosure specs : Width: 8”Height: 21”Depth: 12”Material Thickness: .75”Net Volume: .77Ft3Ports 2”x10”(vol 61.41in3). Matched with Morel MDT 29 1-1/8" Soft Dome Tweeter Part # 277-010 and Dayton Audio 2.2k/3.2k Hz 2-Way Crossover Board Part # 269-116. I just like the clean punchy mid base and the lack of distortion these woofer exhibit when pushed in my 2.1 setup. The 6.5s build quality is excellent and look pretty durable. They perform better than my Vardus 300s.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Positive!Speakers are very good and really do reach the lows - bottom bass I was looking for. They perform well for such a small speaker. Also, they look great!... but wish they had some ID or a label on the speaker itself... but thats ok!

Peerless 835025 6-1/2" Aluminum Cone HDS Woofer

do these have an even frequency response so that they could be used in studio monitors ? sry I´m new to building speakers ^^ btw how can I see If a speaker has an even frequency rsponse.. is there any specification that gives a hint on that ? :O 

Asked by: simplyFelix
Anything could be used in a studio monitor. These will have a breakup frequency like most metal coned drivers that will probably need a little extra work in the crossover. Otherwise these will have a very smooth response.

TQWT(tapered quarter wave tube),  matching this driver with a Morel MDT 22 1-1/8" Neodymium Tweeter.  Good combo?  Thinking of crossing over at ~ 2000 Hertz inside dimensions H = 114.1 cm W = 20.3 cm D = 30 cm any thought would be appreciated

Asked by: swirly
Those two drivers should work well together and that crossover frequency should be fine.

im considering using two as a sub.. what would be a good set up . ie: box vol and port

Asked by: f16voodoo1
For moderate volumes this should work well. I would recommend 1.1 cubic feet total with a 3" diameter, 9" long port. This will tune the box to 38 Hz.

Peerless 835025 6-1/2" Aluminum Cone HDS Woofer ......Will this work for a small 2-way? How small can the box be and still have good bass performance?
