Product Details

Tectonic Elements HIAX13C02-16/RH 13mm Classic Exciter 16 Ohm

Tectonic Elements 13 mm HIAX13C02-16/RH turns virtually any surface into a high fidelity loudspeaker. This exciter's extremely small size enables audio reproduction in places never imagined: toys, monitors, cabinet doors... even windows!

The HIAX13C02-16/RH exciter employs a neodymium magnet for maximum magnetic flux around the voice coil and increased sensitivity. In turn, this reduces power requirements and makes it possible to use very small audio amplifiers, without sacrificing total output.

To ensure maximum acoustic energy transfer between the transducer and the surface to which it is attached, two-part epoxy is recommended. Two terminals extend from the exciter for wire soldering purposes.

Note: An exciter's frequency response and sensitivity are completely dependent on the exciter's designated surface. Thinner, smaller materials will tend to be louder and create a mid/tweeter response. Thicker, larger materials (with multiple exciters) will be slightly quieter but result in a more full-range sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Taco RadioI purchased a handful of these and they're a lot of fun! Parallel 2 and you have 8 ohms and plenty of volume with a couple of watts. They sound good too!Built a Taco Bell Radio with a 12 pack box. Small modified amp and some cotton filling.. Works really well for what it is. Taco Bell manager was very impressed..

Hi, just wanted to know what is this device for, can we use it to replace the tweeters of 8 ohm if the coil is fried out?, please provide some information as the price is appropriate to order. Thanks.

Asked by: Pichoni
This is basically the motor part of a speaker with no cone. It is designed to be glued onto a board so the board can be used like a speaker cone. To use this as a tweeter you will need some sort of cone or dome and it probably wont produce treble tones as well as a factory built tweeter. Then you'll need to find a way to mount it. It would be a fun project, but the right size tweeter would just bolt into your speaker cabinet.
