Dayton Audio DC200-8 8" Classic Woofer
Dayton Audio DC200-8 8" Classic Woofer is rated 4.4844 out of 5 by 128.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can't be beat for the moneyI used this in a 3 way with the RS125P-8 and the DC28F-8. The cabinet is 1.78 cubic ft. tuned to 30hz and the bass is solid and strong. I was on a fairly tight budget, and was a bit concerned that these might not be up to the task but my worries were unfounded. You just can't get better bass for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from smooth midrange with great bassI have these drivers in sealed and vented enclosures and I have never heard a complaint. I have ran them in cheap speakers without crossovers and they roll off smooth enough to run almost any tweeter that can go down below 2500 Hz . I have used them as mid bass in pa systems and as mid bass in three way designs for home use, I even use them as woofers in three way home designs. I am writing this review because I had to replace one today, the first of the many I have used, after 17 years of use in a local restaurant / bar. The other three are still kicking.This speaker is alos the best replacement for the Bo$e 301 or 601 and great in older AR and JBL speakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth the moneyMy brother wanted some speakers built but didn't want to spend much money. I took my Hivi 8" and 6" speakers and my tweeters out of my build and put in this 8" Dayton and a 8" passive radiator to keep cost down. I'll use my Hivi for my next build. I had some old Polk 2 way speakers with the woofers blown. Used the tweeters and the x overs out of them for this build. The sound that these woofers produce is amazing. You not only get deep tight bass but clear crisp midrange. You cant beat the sound quality for the money. As always Parts Express is wonderful to work with.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bring the BoomI bought these speakers to drop into a pair of Optimus - 8" 2-Way Bookshelf speaker cabinets. The cabinets are .51 cu. ft. volume & have a 1 1/2" diameter port tube & have them tuned 40Hz. These are some good speakers for booming bass, which is what I like. The paper dust cap had me worried a bit but I was relieved when I seen that They are pretty stiff. Also the rubber surrounds on the speaker are pretty soft, so they should break in pretty quickly. I say ruffly 10 hours of use at normal playing levels & they are all freed up. These really are excellent speakers for the money & you can't go wrong buy some.

What size port would be optimal for one of these in an enclosure with volume of 1.2 ft3?

Asked by: Benfong3112
I would recommend a 2" diameter, 6.5" long port for this volume, which will tune to 29 Hz.
Answered by: MattP
Date published: 2016-03-01

What size rectangular port would I need to tune this woofer to 30hz in a 1ft^3 box.

Asked by: AACC06
That would require a 2 x 2 inch rectangular port that is 10-3/8 long.

do the holes match-up with those on bose 601 series III?

Asked by: drJayman
I am sorry, we do not have the bolt circle specification available for the Bose. In general aftermarket speakers do not match up exactly and new holes are required to mount though.
Answered by: Chrisf
Date published: 2016-02-02

Would a 1.36 cubic foot box with a 1.5" slotted port work with these woofers ?

Asked by: 88fritz
The airspace is fine, its best to tune this to 32 Hz. The easiest would be a round 2 inch port that is 4 inches long but you can also get there with a rectangular port if you wish.

I have an old Sherwood SP-250 passive bass module that was used in conjunction with left/right satellites.  I am looking to repurpose the bass module (woofer is shot) to supplement the low end of my center channel/speaker.  What's your advice?

Asked by: Ike0223
I would start by checking the physical mounting. Make sure that the hole in the cabinet and frame diameter are compatible with your box. Once you verify that, let us know your cabinets internal dimensions and any information you have on the crossover. Just send the information to tech@parts Express and we will be happy to see how this driver will perform in that application.
