Selenium 15SWS800 15" 800W Subwoofer
Selenium 15SWS800 15" 800W Subwoofer is rated 4.7143 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive driverI installed this driver in a 6 cu. ft., 12 ft. transmission line I previously built for another highly regarded driver, and the results are just fantastic - even though the enclosure is not perfectly adapted.I plan to use the driver in a 3 cu ft. reflex enclosure. Do not let the high Fs value influence you, this is a real subwoofer with enough efficiency and power to accept a little Eq down low. Great driver!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bumpin SubConverted some existing cabinets to handle these drivers, a pair of 15 inch two ways from Kustom. Trash boxes. I purchased JBL MRX's and needed subs and these drivers fit the bill considering the box volume limitations I had. Ultimately my calculations showed I needed 59L and I had 69L to work with. After rebracing the cabinets and mounting new baffles I installed two double flared 4 inch ports each which gave me an F3 of 43Hz. This is a bit higher than what the driver is capable of but it should have a higher power handling capacity and have more control. After completing the retrofit I hooked the pair to a bridged Crown XTi 2000 and did a short breakin process low passed at 120Hz. Then it was time to let em rip. For bass testing my favorite track is the Talkin Heads 'Burning Down the House'. They handled the deep transients with gusto and good chest thumping power. Very clear and controlled they ate the Crown completely. To check for musicality I used Leonard Cohen's 'The Future'. I still haven't had a chnace to RTA the cabs but they seem to do nicely thusfar. Bottom line so far a pair of compact 15 inch subs that sound this good for less than 500 dollars. I am very impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREATThese speaker are built to last and sound even better - I put 4 in a custom box and they will make people think their cell phone is vibrating in their pocket

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded my expectationsI have built and used these in 4 different sub cabinets and they really perform. Punchy loud and clean. Used them live mostly even outdoors. Compared to the JBL's I have used and built around, these are the best bang for the buck. Totally professional. I have used these in a couple of bass cabinets and I am totally satisfied. 20 years of doing this and I like these.

What is the surround made of?

Asked by: Wood01
These use a treated cloth accordian surround.

How would the 15SWS800 work in a 2 way cab, passive crossed @ 1200hz with a 2" EV horn? The cab is an EV T251+. Regards, pjm

Asked by: paddyoaudio
This woofer starts a steep roll off at 1kHz. It would only really work well in a two way if it could be actively crossed and bi-amped. This is designed for subwoofer duty.
