Tang Band W3-1053SC 3" Full Range Driver
Tang Band W3-1053SC 3" Full Range Driver is rated 4.3793 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Paper or plastic?These Full Range speakers were placed into Bose 501 Series 0 speakers. The original Bose design limited Higher Frequency response, apparently due to the high frequency reflective charachteristics of the rear facing drivers.Paper cones for poly?The original mid-high drivers suffered from brittleness and left a hollow impression in the sound field. The poly cones give a resonably flat response over the mid to high frequencies with a gradual rolloff over 15kHz. Maintaining an spl over 80dB at 20kHz allows reflected highs to be produced without being too bright.The resulting sound is very relaxing. I will give the 501s to my mother because they are non-fatiguing and deliver the full field ambience levels that she likes.The Bose concept is powerful in the right application.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tang Band #1053 3" full range SPKRI found that this speaker works very well used as a midrange/ tweeter xo @ 825hz using 2nd order L-R ( 12uf and 3.0mh ). The snare drum, guitars, keyboards and especially the cymbals come thru sounding like they should sound. It seems that with 2-way systems, they are asking the woofer to carry the bulk of the frequencies, and the tweeters only add the sparkle. In my opinion the cymbals don't sound natural with higher xo's. ( I don't like the sound of the resonant frequencies @ the "knee" of the 2nd order xo point. ) In my experience with woofers, they always bring with them all the high end, too. I found that using the low pass xo pulled from the 7th Vance Dickason book ( Studio Monitor Project ) the 825hz xo point ( 3.0mh and 12uf ) took away all the upper frequencies coming from the woofer and left just the bass ( which is what a woofer should do ). I already had the 1053 loaded in the PE 0.25 cabinet ( from earlier experiments ) and then tried adding the other half of the L-R 2nd order 825hz xo ( 12uf and 3.0mh ) for the high pass filter. WOW! This thing sounds great! If you don't think it can work consider this: using a 12dB 2nd order xo @ 825, @ 400hz it's down 12dB; @ 200 it's down to 24dB and by the time you get to 100hz it's down to -36dB ( buried ). If you still don't think it will work: Hook up the xo and before you turn it on, push on the cone of the 1053 to get an idea of how much cone travel you have. Then turn on the music and crank it to "4" on the dial. Here is the test: with the music playing, rest your finger on the cone and what do you have? The cone is barely moving. I really like the sound of the Tang Bang 1053. Thx PE.

Tang Band W3-1053SC 3" Full Range Driver

What is the mounting depth?

Asked by: KreamDC
Raw drivers sold at Parts Express usually have three dimensions at the end of their specifications, "A" is the overall diameter, "B" is the cabinet cutout requirement, and "C" is the mounting depth.This driver has a 2" mounting depth.

Looking at the impedance curve, do these need a Zobel circuit to play the highs accurately in a full range application?

Asked by: Lost at sea
A full-range application would not use a crossover at all, so it would not need a Zobel circuit. Zobel circuits are only used to flatten the driver's impedance curve so that a passive crossover crosses over at the correct frequency. If you don't have a crossover then there is no reason to flatten the impedance curve because it won't have any effect on what the speaker puts out. If you attach this speaker directly to an amplifier then you will get the frequency response shown in the datasheet; if you then put a Zobel network on it then you will get pretty much the exact same response, only this time the impedance curve will be flat.

what diameter port and length

Asked by: spunky
In an enclosure that measures 4" x 5" x 6" (internal), a 1" x 2" port will be appropriate.

If measured diagonally, what's the distance between the mounting holes? 80mm?

I need two 8ohms drivers to replace two deads Logitech Z-2300 speaker drivers. Im' not sure if I should get 3" or 2-1/2" drivers. The original ones have 80mm diagonally or 56mm horizontally/vertically between the mounting holes, as shown in the picture uploaded. Thanks in advance.
Asked by: pynot
This is 84mm center to center diagonally.

Ok great so a cab 4x5x6 intd- with 1inch port 2 inches long, can you add a second driver or will that throw things off

Asked by: spunky
You can add a second driver as long as you double the internal volume and number of ports.
