Tang Band W5-1138SM 5-1/4" Neodymium Subwoofer
When I model this in various tools the most consistent result for a sealed box is 5-6L F3 was in the low 70s. I'm trying to keep the box small (so sealed) but would like to get another 10hz our of it. Possible? Or do I need to go to vented?
Does it have dual voice coils?
This is a single coil driver.

which driver (probably full range) would you suggest in combination with this one in an 2.1 system?
Just about any full range driver we offer will work for this application. There are a lot of things to consider to make a decision, I would recommend contacting our tech department for further help. 800-338-0531 x1 or email@example.com.

Hi I am planning on building a subwoofer with this model and I was wondering if the 70w amp sa-70 is too much for this woofer.
The SA70 is a perfect match for this woofer.

I would love to have two of these in one ported enclosure, I wouldn't mine if it was tuned a little bit higher, perhaps around 45-50hz, and really push the size to be as small as possible. Can someone help me with interior volume, and port size?
I would recommend 0.7 cubic feet total with a 3" diameter port that is 10" long for a tuning frequency of 49 Hz.

put these in the back doors... smart idea?
HI allI am looking to add some low end to my car stereo system.One idea is to put the TB W5 speakers in the back doors of my car. These are the dimensions:Diameters:Front: 16.5-17cm (6½")Rear: 13cm (5¼")Depth Restrictions:Front: 60mm (2¼") *note this can be increased to 76mm (3") see fitting guide below.Rear (3-door): no restrictionRear (5-door): 70mm (if factory plastic rear cover is removed)It is already a small car so I do not want to spend space on a box anywhere. I have not seen anyone build a sub in a door... is there a good reason to not do that?What kind of amp would be suitable for this? I am not looking for any earth shattering bass, just some nice addition in the lower end. I could imagine as well treating the door would be more important with this use.. right?Input and or alternatives appreciated!Tnx!
Unless they are in a small enclosure the doors are nortoriously bad for getting low end. I would recommend putting a pair of these in the trunk in about .3-.4 cubic feet sealed. This will help the bottom end and not take up much space at all.
