Tang Band W4-1337SD 4" Titanium Driver
What is the sealed enclosure size recommendation?
Just the single driver in a sealed enclosure, measured in square feet. Planning to run full-range, so I need to exploit as much lower frequency as possible without porting the enclosure.
The optimum sealed enclosure is 0.05 cubic feet yielding an F3 of 150 Hz.This functions best in a 0.25 cubic foot enclosure with a 2" diameter port that is 6" long. That would yield an F3 of 70 Hz.

Would like to use three of these in a center channel HT speaker-how would they best be wired?
I am building a center channel and these speakers seem to have wonderful reviews as full range speakers which would be perfect when coupled with my towers and sub which have great lower ends. Would they work together in a three speaker array? Would they need a ported enclosure?
i like two [sum 4 ohm]with a ribbon tweeter[6ohm] crossover at 5 to 6 k in side way MTM look at the efficiency you don't need three and they won't sum correctly ,, either 12 or 2.8 ohms, not amp happy losds

Could this be mounted in the ceiling?
Just wanted to try this idea I had of mounting one of these to the ceiling of my bathroom as a background music speaker? Since it doesn't technically need a crossover. Am I crazy? Is there a better smaller size that could work too? Mounting would be tricky but I can figure that out.
It would work fine, and likely sound better than any other ceiling-speaker youve heard. Hook it up, run it full range!

can this speaker be used in a car application?
Sorry to ask if this is a dumb question. The Pioneer deck in the car states it will work with 4 and 8 ohm speakers. I realize these are 8ohm speakers. But would they perform well? Most reviews are for home applications. Just want to make sure. Thanks for reading.Humble audio newbie...
It will work fine, as far as the impedance. Don't expect a lot of bass, however, as the xmax is only 3mm. For that money, I'd look into a more rugged coaxial...

What hardware is recommended to mount these?
Also, these appear to have two different sized crimping terminals. What sizes are they?
Hi, Pop. You could use a #6 screw as referenced below, or a M5 metric screw to mount this driver. As for the terminals, they can vary from one production run to the next, so we typically recommend something like our connector variety pack, also referenced below. Another option is to procure the terminals locally, once you have the speaker and can determine the proper size connector.

I plan to use this as a center channel speaker. Anyone have any design tips beside the recommended enclosure dimensions?
This has been a quite popular and well-liked driver; the reviews we've received from our customers are generally very positive, and you might begin by looking through some of them. Another suggestion would be simply doing a Google search on the brand and model number. Simply search for "Tang Band W4-1337SD," and you should find at least a few ideas, including some discussion on our own TechTalk customer forum.
