Tectonic Elements TEAX32C20-8 32mm Self Supported Exciter 8 Ohm
Tectonic Elements TEAX32C20-8 32mm Self Supported Exciter 8 Ohm is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mounting inside a Bass GuitarI had an idea. I play a 1969 Vox Apollo IV bass guitar in my band. It is what's known as a hollow body. The music I play can be loud and one of things I do will be to pluck a note, turn to face the spreaker and generate Mechanical Feedback. This MF is the note (with some overtones) I'm playing but an octive or two raised in pitch. But to do this I have to turn my back to the audience (if there is one!) and squat a bit. So, I thought that this Exicter might be the ticket to get that sustain effect I was looking for while standing. I'm still working out the installation details, but if this works, well I'll let the Part Express world know. BTW, Electronic Feedback is just high pitched squeeling.

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.

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.

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
As you mentioned, it is self supported-it has it's own spider to keep the coil centered. Having said that, wave length = physical length = lowest frequency you can obtain. You will find it tricky to add any cone to this without a metal basket to hold it all together. The "torque" is equal to the amount of forward and backward motion you can get at maximum wattage. If you do not have a signal generator, I would just try using a 9 volt battery to see how much the cone moves.At 32mm diameter, it seems to be designed for an 6" to 8" woofer-no more, at maybe 30 to 50 watts max. As a "subwoofer", it would be no good. It will probably roll off at 40HZ at best. Powerful subwoofers often have 50mm to 75mm coils.
