Pyle PLBW84 Blue Wave 8" Woofer
Pyle PLBW84 Blue Wave 8" Woofer is rated 3.913 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice addition to my systemI have a Jeep Cherokee which has very limited areas in which speakers can be placed without putting them in cargo or people space. The factory premium sound system was always a disappointment to me. When looking to upgrade I replaced the factory speakers with various aftermarket units. Though better than the OEM stuff everything I tried lacked low end.I decided to try an 8" sub woofer to boost the bottom end. I wanted to put it in the rear passenger side 1/4 panel and only had room for one speaker. I chose this Pyle first because it was inexpensive and I wasn't looking for "competition" level bass. Also, it is a dual voice coil so I could run both left and right channels to one speaker.When I first installed the sub I made a piece of flat sheet metal to mount the speaker in the 1/4 panel location. In this location the front and rear of the speaker were isolated but the enclosure wasn't sealed, sort of like mounting a speaker in a door. The sound was far less than impressive and I was very disappointed with the setup. After posing the question here on what may be wrong I decided to build a box for the speaker to be installed into.When building the box the biggest issue was the lack of space. The area behind the trim panel was very small and there just wasn't much room to work with. Essentially I built the largest box that would fit into that space and it wound up being just barely larger that the speaker itself. The depth was just enough to clear the magnet structure. Needless to say the volume of this box was positively tiny. I made the box out of a small scrap piece of OSB plywood I had laying around because, well, it was free. I figured that a box this small would produce even worse results than what I had before so I didn't want to spend any money building it. Boy was I wrong!The tiny box transformed this speaker from barely noticeable to exactly what I wanted. This setup isn't going to shake your fillings loose but it provides just enough bottom end to augment the weakness in the speakers in the factory locations. When turning up the volume I get nice clear sound with deep bass and none of the distortion I had in the past. I believe that with a correctly sized box this sub could be down right impressive, especially considering its small size (for a sub) and very low price. Even in the tiny box I made it is impressive to me. Worth the price.If your looking for earth pounding bass look elsewhere. If your looking for a low priced solution to weak bass in your current system this likely could be a very cost friendly solution.B

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Okay for a car rear deck replacementI have a car that had a factory 8" sub mounted in the rear deck. There is no baffling in the trunk -- just a open volume. I blew the original sub and put in a temporary fix. When I heard this one had a stiff suspension I bought it to replace the temporary. I am driving it with a true 150 watts RMS. It sounds fine and does exactly what I expected. In the essentially unbaffled enclosure it is able to handle the cone excursions up to about 90% of the 150 watts. Above that it begins to bottom out and distort. If it is mounted in an acoustic suspension or tightly ported box it would be better. But all in all I get good smooth, solid bass up to the level you would expect from an 8" in a car. If you want more bass, go bigger. When you move air, size does matter.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Probably ok for cheap car audioIt's a car audio woofer designed to operate in a small enclosure so consequently it has a very stiff suspension, too stiff. The suspension causes it to require far more power mechanically than it can handle thermally. Even in open air it takes massive power to get much excursion out of it even at very low frequency. Ultimately it's problem is that it will require more power than it can handle. If you just need to get some sound in a car on a low budget it will work, but I think not well. I had a completely different application in mind for it however and it will not work at all for that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great subs for the price.I have two of these in a sealed box,1.1 cuft per chamber, hooked up to a 1000.2 hitron amp and everybody thinks I have 12's. They are nice and deep and I can turn them all the way up without distorting the sound.I would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome speaker Awesome sound--Great Product !!!Bought this speaker with doubt, but was extremely pleased with the results. I built a enclosed 2 port box, and the deep bass/sound is great. In fact it out performs a enclosed 2 port box with 2 12" eminence subs. Great price.

Pyle PLBW84 Blue Wave 8" Woofer

What size cutout dia. is needed for this subwoofer to fit correctly in a enclosure? I cannot find any specs regarding the enclosure cutout dia. required for this sub. I currently have a enclosure for a 8" woofer with a 7-1/16" dia. Will it fit, thanks

Asked by: Gkk8711
Yes this will fit a cutout of 7-1/16".

Can the rubber magnet cover be removed and if so what is the mounting depth with out it?

Asked by: jzcarguy78
Unfortunately removing the magnet cover will not gain you any depth due to the bumped back plate being the same depth as the boot itself.

Would this sub be well suited for a "Free air" setup

I have a 1998 firebird and i am looking to put these in the sail panels behind the front seats to utilize the low frequency coming from the factory amp.
Asked by: Bighunt
The available specs for this woofer are limited. Based on the comments and the free air resonance of 60 Hz., I would look to put it in a vented box arrangement. Then you could hope to control that response in 40-80Hz. territory. Just a thought.

Problem with setup or just a bad speaker?

I bought this speaker to install in my 1998 Jeep Cherokee. I installed the speaker in the side of the cargo area on the passenger side of the Jeep. Behind the plastic side trim I attached a piece of sheet metal to the Jeeps structure in order to mount the speaker. Though the speaker is not in a "sealed" enclosure it's not in free air either. The front of the speaker is separated from the rear by this sheet metal panel but the entire area is not sealed. I guess it would be a lot like the trunk area of a normal car only significantly smaller.I am feeding this speaker with a 100WPC Lanzar amp.My problem is that I can barely tell this speaker is installed. If I turn up the power to it it just distorts badly. If I turn the power down to a point where it will not distort I cannot even tell it's there. From the write ups here I have to believe my setup is the problem. Does this speaker require a sealed box to keep it from over extending?The speaker cone does move a lot when playing but there is very little sound coming from it. So, is there something wrong with my setup?B
Asked by: Bloose2
You effectively have a dipole more than a leaky "sealed" box. It will require sealing the front wave completely from the rear wave. Basically, the enclosure isnt sealed until you push on the cone and it is pretty hard to push it in. Its not sealed if you can push the cone in and it takes a while for it to spring back into place.
