Tang Band W3-881SJF 3" Full Range Speaker
Tang Band W3-881SJF 3" Full Range Speaker is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great speakersI purchased these from parts express based on other reviews. I wanted to give my impression of these little speakers.I have these installed in the stock dash location of my truck with a baffle , but no rear chamber, just stuffed the dash with polyfill under them. I am using them as mids in a 3 way active setup.I spent some time tuning them using Room eq. Sweeps revealed that installed this way they had a bad dip at 1500hz. The natural roll-off is 380 and 6088. So i used a lr3 to get a lr4 effectively. With proper tuning they sound very good. Sweeps after tuning show very low distortion. They have good detail and are quite revealing. I am very pleased with the results. Now if i can get everything else to sound as great as these then, I might be satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These live up to the spec sheetThese speakers have an amazingly flat response, wide frequency range anddecent low end. I've measured the response of 4 of these with an HP SpectrumAnalyser and one of my employers hand-built measurement grade microphones.They would be excellent for near-field applications. I used them in a ported box,and crossed them over at 125 Hz.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well defined bass and great all around soundPut this into a t-line tuned to about 100hz. I use them for desktop use, they fill my small room with great bass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Frequency ResponseI bought this driver a few weeks ago for a portable bluetooth music player. I installed it into and small sealed polycarbonate case with bridged TPA3110 (16 watts). The sound quality is remarkable for a 3" driver!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't beat it for the priceExcellent speaker for the price. I would comment more on the sound quality, but considering what I put the speakers in, you can't expect hi-quality sound from a plastic toy.That being said, the speakers do sound great, and are well worth the money.Thanks Parts Express!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tiny Bookshelf SpeakersI purchased a pair of these along with the .04 ft^3 mdf knock down cabinet and a pair of 3.5" Peerless radiators just to see how these would do in a small application. Let me just say they exceeded expectations. Very very full sound from a single speaker and can get surprisingly low. Also can handle way more power than i was expecting. Very highly recommended!

Do I need to use a tweeter with these?

Asked by: curtwoodproduction
This is up to personal preference. These full range drivers offer a pretty extended response, and often do not require a tweeter, but some people (myself included) still like the additional upper end a tweeter can offer, as well as better off axis response.

What is the off axis response? On axis looks good, but off axis response would be helpfull information. 

Asked by: skippytech
We only have on axis plots available for this driver. You may ask around on our forum to see if anyone has third party measurements for this.

what is "santoprene" as in the surround?

Asked by: Ohmfreek
Santoprene is a type of rubber compound that is more resilient to the elements and will last longer than other types of rubber surrounds, such as Butyl rubber or foam.

I an building a boombox. I picked these for the smooth mids through highs. I was thinking of a single ported 5-inch woofer for the lows and to increase the overall power handling. Can I use a 1st-order crossover? What frequency?
