from Great price, average soundI bought these to replace failed speakers in our electric piano. + The fit was perfect so the measurements given in the technical specs are correct.+ The price is hard to beat also- The sound quality is marginal at best. It almost sounds like all of the different tones are blended into each other. It is hard to get a good quality full range sound out of these.

from Visaton BG 17 in a transmission lineI built a transmission line using a BG17 and a Dayton ND16 crossed in at 10K and I am extremely pleased with the combo. I built a 50 liter(30x12.5x8) enclosure tuned to 67hz stuffed with polyfill for the first half of the line. The picture doesn't show the ND16, I added them later and had them firing upward to the ceiling.

from Fills a NeedFor a common size, 6.5", there are surprisingly few examples of 8 ohm speakers (most are 4 ohm for the auto market). And if you are looking for a full range, that narrows the field even more. Until the Visiton was offered I had seen exactly NONE that met those three criteria, so I was very happy to see that Parts Express was making these available. That they are priced so low is a huge plus.I was repairing a pair of Scott speakers from the 60s and this is exactly what I needed. They are a perfect fit. Soundwise, the highs are better than expected. The bass is lacking, but this could be the sealed Scott cabinet. The Visitons would sound better in a vented cab, I believe.
