Tectonic Elements TEAX32C20-8 32mm Self Supported Exciter 8 Ohm
HiWave HIAX32C20-8 32mm Self Supported Exciter 8 Ohm is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for certain applicationsI bought these to use in a theater production to simulate the sounds coming from a small "boombox" and a telephone without taking up the space of a small speaker. They are being powered by a 60wpc amp and are not being pushed too hard. As others have stated regarding these devices, the surface that they get mounted to makes a huge difference in overall tonality and volume produced. I have one mounted to a small wooden bookcase and it sounds great. The other is mounted to the metal frame of a desk and requires a little more level to produce the same volume. The mounting is critical. I had intended to mount them with a nut & bolt through the hole in the center for added stability and re-use, but it proved to be too tight and constricted the motion of the transducer. I instead went with the adhesive rings. However, not sure what I will be able to do when I want to re-use them and mount them on another surface. But for the price, they are great.

Used as a small sound dock subwoofer

I'm a total newbie to diy speaker and I wonder if I could use this transducer as a subwoofer for a small sized sound dock to complete with a pair of Tang Bang W2-800SL and a DTA-2 ampli?
Asked by: Hernandiz
Good project but could be problematic. You'll need a large surface with the right properties or you'll have a vibrator instead of a sub. Also, you'll have need a circuit to share load from channels or have an imbalance. If building,I'd use a Peerless 830987 instead of the w-2. Range is 54-20000. If refitting and must have 2" speaker, I'd use a vifa or peerless. Either way,use a notch filter at fs. Good luck.

Would these speakers work on inside of kitchen cabinet doors? How much surface is required to be effective?

Asked by: coyotek9
These will work assuming the cabinet door material is relatively thin and lightweight. The larger the surface the more output you will get (to an extent), as well as more bass response. A standard cabinet door will be ideal.
