Reviews

Tang Band W3-1797S 3" Neodymium Midrange Driver
Tang Band W3-1797S 3" Neodymium Midrange Driver is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very high performance mid-rangeSometimes great products get a bad wrap in reviews due to inexperience of the user. If you try to use this as a mid-bass driver you won't like it, nor should you. As a mid-range driver however it's excellent. I installed these in my F-150 extended cab truck mounted in 4" PVC end caps painted to match the interior of the truck. I have them installed up on each side of the back window along with a Hi-Vi tweeter mounted outside the PVC end cap. I use DSP crossovers/EQ and run these from 600 Hz to 2500 Hz along with Peerless 5" drivers in the rear doors. These sound amazingly good. I had looked at some component systems from Focal in the $2000 range built into a molded baffle that's in my opinion no better than my DIY PVC solution. I'm very confident my modules using these drivers are comparable if not superior to the far more expensive Focal system. Distortion data on these drivers were excellent with 3rd harmonics consistently below 2nd. I personally think this is a fantastic driver well worth the very reasonable price.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from mediocre-all looks no performancesmall surface area due to the flat cone, popping at the limits of its excursion, not a good price/value ratio. Tang Band make good stuff, this is not one however.Better to buy the knockoff Aurasound driver Parts ex has in this website---it it world's beyond this driver at 1/3rd the price. Hi-vi also makes nice small drivers.
