Pyramid Studio Pro WH8 8" Woofer Accordian Surround
Pyramid Studio Pro WH8 8" Woofer Accordian Surround is rated 4.4545 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from WICKED!I bought four of these so far, two from here and two from eBay, the sound quality is unreal for a woofer just above $10, nothing compares to these, they handle 200 watts and they truly do handle 200 watts, i have two of these mounted in old school Traynor BW-4 speaker cabinets modified for a larger sealed type enclosure and the bass is surprisingly very nice considering they are quite stiff (Guitar amp uses), mids are clear and treble surprisingly enough are very sharp for and 8" driver. Do keep an eye out though is the fourth woofer i ordered had a four bolt gasket installed rather than an eight bolt and all four of my woofers are only drilled to have a four bolt pattern... nothing what a drill bit and a drill can't fix. other than that wicked buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very punchy bass!I helped a friends replace 4 blown woofers with these. After optimizing the cabinets, I couldn't believe what I heard. Of course, you're not getting much below 50 hz, but the bass from 60-100 hz hits so hard that you can feel it in your chest. The treble quality is also very clear. For the price, these woofers are amazing, as long as you put them in a decent ported enclosure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought these thinking they would be okay.....Boy was I wrong! They are better than I thought.I would recommend these to anyone needing a replacement speaker. Thanks for selling quality products for low pricing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You won't find a better speaker at a better priceStop what you're doing, round up the change in your ashtray and buy this speaker. The little thrift shop special, 25-watt guitar practice amp was headed for the curb until I came across Parts Express and a speaker being sold for roughly the price of gum. A week later and I'm still grinning like a chimp.Although the frequency response is rated at 73 to 5,000 Hz, I've tested it down to 31 and above 8,000 without a hint of protest. From the speaker. The neighbors are a different story. It's also noticeably louder than the speaker it replaced. Again, ask the neighbors.The mounting holes aligned perfectly. The earlier issues with the six-hole configuration have apparently been resolved. I did, however, have to expand the diameter of the cut-out by an eighth of an inch or so to get the speaker to slip snugly into place. It's possible the speaker has a tad more girth around the edges, but the five minute fix wasn't a big deal. Also had to change out the quick release plugs running from the amp, but that's another five minutes. Other than that ...Bottom line: The Pyramid Studio Pro WH8 gives you a whole lot of quality speaker for a price that looks like a misprint. And stop grinning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than the original !!Replaced the original 15 watt woofers in a old pair of Radio Shack Realistic speakers. They have never, ever, - sounded this good before. Man, what a worthwhile upgrade investment for the low cost that Parts-Express provides. Never going to shop anywhere else, again.David

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great replacement speaker for little practice ampI bought this as a replacement for a blown speaker on a Peavey Rage 158 practice amp. It sounds decent enough for the price. Not great, but not that bad either.

Pyramid Studio Pro WH8 8" Woofer Accordian Surround

I have some speaker enclosures I'd like to fit with new speakers. One 8" opening and the tweeter has a 4" opening (but the old tweeter looks to be 2 3/4" across) Any recommendations for a tweeter to pair with this speaker?
