Product Details

Tymphany NE149W-08 5-1/4" Fiber Cone Woofer Speaker 8 Ohm

The Tymphany NE149W-08 5-1/4" neodymium woofer is characterized by the NE Series' cast aluminum basket—an innovative sculpted, open design that minimizes internal acoustic reflections and assists the neodymium motor's thermal management.

A coated natural wood fiber cone with a butyl rubber surround is FEA optimized for linearity of performance. Finite element analysis techniques also contribute to inclusion of the motor's copper cap, which reduces inductance and extends the speaker's upper frequency performance.

Tymphany NE149W-08 5-1/4" Fiber Cone Woofer Speaker 8 Ohm
Tymphany NE149W-08 5-1/4" Fiber Cone Woofer Speaker 8 Ohm is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Midrange DriverI'm renovating a pair of JBL 8330 speaker cabinets to use as reference monitors for audiovideo production. Installing this driver in the midrange provided the exact solution I was looking for to give sound more like the source and less like a 'speaker'.I've combined this with a Morel CAW938 woofer, which has an almost identical construction, and will soon add a suitable tweeter, all driven by a Bryston 4BST amp.

Tymphany NE149W-08 5-1/4" Fiber Cone Woofer Speaker 8 Ohm

on the vented box design ,any idea of port size, length and axis point rec. thx ahead

Asked by: tarheel1217
I would recommend a 1-1/2" diameter, 7" long port with that volume.

Would this perform well in active crossover setup in a car door?

Asked by: Supernoob
Yes this will work for that application. I would recommend a high pass filter around 80 Hz, this will not be able to play much lower than that anyway when mounted free air.
