Product Details

RCF L8S800 8" Midbass Speaker

Very high linearity and low distortion are special features of the L8S800 carbon fiber cone 8" transducer. RCF's use of an exponential profile carbon fiber cone of exceptional strength and light weight drastically reduces breakup, thus ensuring a high level of efficiency and excellent transient response. Maximum care in the selection of components and in the assembly process makes the L8S800 an extremely reliable driver. It is the ideal woofer for very compact, full range, bass reflex systems where a good balance between midbass linearity and low frequency extension is required. The L8S800's light mass and midrange extension make it perfect for combining with a small size HF driver or tweeter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from See throughVery transparent sounding- good stuff goes in, good stuff goes out; same the other way.Sometimes needs a little EQ in the low end. Depends on the source material.Expensive but worth it. Did not test power handling- using indoors.Currently using them in a 2-way with a Neo8.

RCF L8S800 8" Midbass Speaker

Im limited to a small enclosure space of 0.35 cu ft. I like these to use these in a active 3-way system with 24db active Xover. Is achieving a -3db at 65hz realistic with only 0.35 cu ft? If yes, what port dia/length is recommended? MRB800 better suited? 

Asked by: GB1980
This driver will not work very well in that volume if you are looking for an F3 that low. I am not familiar with the MRB800 model number, can you confirm this is correct?

Could you please provide me with an overall idea of the performance in B6.  Approx enclosure size 1.5 cu ft (+/-)   I would like to build a 2 way active system, moderate SPL with decent LF extension to 32 Hz -3dB  in half space.   Xo at around 1800 hz

Asked by: Wine Lover
You could certainly tune the enclosure to 30-32 Hz, but this driver will have very little output at that frequency. You would be much farther ahead tuning it closer to 45-50 Hz. A 3" diameter port that is 2" long will tune it to 47 Hz and provide a bit of a shelf which room gain will bring back up. F3 for this is 54 Hz. The woofer will not fully unload until about 35 Hz, but I would not recommend tuning any lower.
