Product Details

PRV Audio 8MB500-NDY Neodymium 8" Midbass/Midrange Woofer 8 Ohm

PRV Audio's 8MB500-NDY neodymium 8" midbass woofer is a lighter version of the popular 8MB450 and offers the same high output punch, a smooth midrange, and response up to 4,000 Hz. A lower Qts motor design offers more driver control, and a lower free-air response allows it to reach a little bit deeper. The 8MB500 is designed for use as a midbass or midrange driver in 3-way speakers. Alternatively, you can use this speaker in small sealed and ported cabinets as a woofer in floor and studio monitors.

A thick, light, and rigid paper cone is mated to a 2" voice coil for great sensitivity and high power handling. A durable spider suspension, woven cloth surround, and stamped steel frame are combined for extreme durability. High output SPL car audio enthusiasts gravitate towards this driver for use in their systems when looking for a lightweight midrange or midbass that can sustain long hours of extreme operation.
