Tang Band W4-1052SD 4" Driver 4 Ohm
Tang Band W4-1052SD 4" Driver 4 Ohm is rated 4.3125 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Little Speaker!!!I used this speaker in a portable amplified speaker unit, paired with a KEMO 18 Watt amp module, perfect Match. This little speaker was quite impressive, And it.DOES take some use to break the thing in, to hear Its true sound. Im getting more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from a real gem if tamed properlyDespite the peaks and the rising response curve, these little drivers can be tamed to give extraordinary performance in full range format. After much thought, modeling, and consulting with Taterworks(who built the Stones with these drivers), I ended up using a 7 component contour network with that reshapes the rising response, tames the peaks, and takes care of the BSC. After a few months of field testing, I am very pleased with the result. It is sufficient for most music and will make awesome multimedia speakers. One note is that it does beam the high frequencies(due to cone size) which makes optimal listening area is within 15 degrees of axis.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent !Used a pair of these with a Dayton DTA-1 amp for my computer speakers. Just excellent seperation and definition and plenty of volume. Has convinced me that single drivers in low SPL applictions can't be beat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A hidden gem that needs a bit of work to singThis driver has been dismissed by some, and maligned by others who didn't really know what they had. Some have given up on using this driver, relegating it to the role of a wideband midbass driver. But its top-end extension isn't just there to taunt you. Used by itself, this driver has a rising response through the midrange, culminating in a breakup mode around 8 kHz -- by the time you reach that peak, you're almost 10dB above the driver's baseline response, and you're beginning to roll off at around 14 kHz. Don't sound the death knell just yet, however -- this driver is a stellar performer in a "filtered full range" design, in which the response is tamed by a carefully-designed contouring filter. The strong motor, lossy plastic cone, and Santoprene surround make this driver very fundamentally sound from a mechanical point of view; it's just a matter of bringing down the rising response with a step filter, and smoothing the peak with a notch filter, and you're in business. Add in some baffle step correction when used in a narrow enclosure, and you'll have a project that's extremely satisfying to listen to. In fact, my own filtered full-range design took third place in the 'under $200' class from among six projects at the 2009 Dayton DIY event, even beating out a two-way design in a much larger tower-style cabinet. So don't write this driver off -- with just a little TLC from a properly-designed contour filter, you'll have a driver that does right by a stunningly wide variety of music.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A true full-range speaker - with surprising bass!I dropped two of the W4-1052SD speakers into a 1 cuft tall narrow cabinet with a port tuned to around 54Hz. As a test, I wired them full-range (no cross-over) and left the tweeter discounted. WOW!! Excellent treble and very decent bass response. You need to crank up the bass level a bit to keep flat extension but very usable down to 50Hz. It's got me thinking that I wasted money on the tweeter!These are an excellent speaker, with good value and very good performance.

Tang Band W4-1052SD 4" Driver 4 Ohm

are the speakers good for a DIY Boombox. I was thinking a pair of these and a subwoofer, with a Leipei amp. Promarily for outdoor use, eg;  beach, camping, etc  

Asked by: antonio229
Yes these would work well for a boombox application.

this will be the first thing i have done electronically. I was told to use a dayton tweeter

and incorporate a simple pass "I would recommend a small flange Dayton neo tweeter with a simple high pass somewhere around 5-6kHz." I don't know what that means or how to do it. Could you explain. This would be the tweeter i chose. Dayton Audio ND20FB-4 Rear-Mount 3/4" Neodymium Dome Tweeter
Asked by: magila
Simply sellect a2-way crossover with a range that matched your speakers, get w box and install. The crossover will have terminals for input and woofer and tweeter outputs.

what tweeter would be a good match for this.

I am replacing the Minimus 7 speaker that I have used as a job site cell phone speaker powered by 1 Pyle 15w@ 4ohm mono amp. It wasn't loud but it had a nice sound. Thought i would use this speaker and a tweeter to match, to take advantage of the 4 ohm mono amp. any suggestions. i did the calculator for the enclosure and this is what was recommended
Asked by: magila
There aren't many tweeters that won't work with this woofer. I would recommend a small flange Dayton neo tweeter with a simple high pass somewhere around 5-6kHz.

Port size and lenght for 2 drivers in a box .31 cu.ft.

Asked by: kenny555
That's a good size box for a single driver. Not for 2. Check under the speaker building tab, woofer selection guide. You will find box sizes for both ported and sealed enclosures for many drivers - including this one. From there - you need to use a box calculator and plug in the specs. From there - you can vary things to determine the response curve you want and get the port diameter and length.

What components and design would I use to make 'step filters' to tame the midrange peak these have?

Asked by: nmmathteacher
You are asking a very difficult question. This speaker will perform differently with various crossovers, bi-amped or in multiples. What frequency and to what level do you wish to limit?I use a parametric EQ. to get control of a peak in a system. In some instances a notch filter is the answer while in other applications a stop filter is best.Some audiophiles use resistive capacitive designs and others prefer capwcitive inductive. Individuals who desire great accuracy opt for IC op-amps. I recomend Audio Op-Amp Applications by W.G. Jung published by Howard Sams & Co.Check out speaker software at PE and consider modeling various designs.You could also consider phase filters which put a 180 shift at q band and cancelled the frequency altogether. Variable designs adjust the phase and allow some control.
