Product Details

Tang Band W3-2000 3" Neodymium Subwoofer

Tang Band's W3-2000 patented 3" subwoofer driver features a patented structure design that is built using an injection-assembled process. An underhung 20 mm voice coil is saturated with focused magnetic flux from the neodymium magnet for superior performance, with minimal distortion, down to 55 Hz while maintaining decent sensitivity that belies the driver's small size. 

This next gen subwoofer is perfect for applications such as tablet computer and iPad speaker systems, notebook and laptop speaker systems, multimedia and surround sound speakers, or use in multiples for small, high-output bandpass subwoofers. The W3-2000's small size allows you to consider speaker designs never before possible!

Tang Band W3-2000 3" Neodymium Subwoofer

Recommended enclosure for mounting under laptop, approx. 6"x12"x1.5" of room

Asked by: aftafoya
You will have to build the enclosure as big as possible using those dimensions, i would recommend using 1/4" thick material to get the most volume possible. A 5/8" diameter, 10" long port will tune it to about 107 Hz.

Would this amp work with this subwoofer: http://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-sa25-25w-subwoofer-plate-amplifier--300-782

Asked by: Jackie28
Yes that amplifier will work fine with this woofer. I would recommend a sealed box that is 8" x 5" x 4-1/2" externally using 1/2" MDF.

I have .11 cubic feet for one of these. Bandpass? Something else? Help with dimensions?

Asked by: TorClausen2
With heavy fill, i would recommend a standard vented box. A 1" diameter, 4.5" long port will tune this to 56 Hz.

Is the weight (0.95lbs.) accurate?

How can that be for such a small driver, when the frame and enclosure appear to be plastic?
Asked by: FaraDave
This is the packaged shipping weight for this driver so it will be higher than the driver itself.

enclosure options?

I am interested in this speaker for a portable boom box. Where does it shine?
Asked by: TorClausen2
A recommended enclosure for this driver is a 5" internal cube with a 1/2" diameter port that is 3" long. This will tune the enclosure to 50 Hz.
