Product Details

Visaton FR13-4 5" Full-Range Speaker 4 Ohm

The 4800 FR13 full-range speaker from Visaton provides uniform frequency response and a surprising amount of low-frequency output. The 1.25 Qts motor is designed to offer decent bass response when used in infinite baffle applications, such as automotive car door speakers, overhead public transportation systems, and is perfect for use in open baffle speakers. The dual-cone design offers seamless time alignment when compared to multi-way speakers, and simple installation is enabled by four open mounting tangs.

Reviews

Visaton FR13-4 5" Full-Range Speaker 4 Ohm
Visaton FR13-4 5" Full-Range Speaker 4 Ohm is rated 4.75 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Follow Up, with pic this time.This is just a follow up of my previous review. Simply amazing little speakers! Can't say enough about them. They barely look usable as an alarm clock radio speaker. But to hear them is quite surprising. Anyway, I attached a picture of my rough OB project with these. Any comments/criticisms/question are welcome. Looking forward to building a more complex and finished design in the near future for these. I am thinking that they may actually be suitable as the high range in a Martin J. King OB design instead of the Fostex. most likely accompanied by the infamous Eminence 15A.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Open Baffle ProjectThought this little driver had good specs for OB design, and it does. While it is just a frogs hair muted on the top end, it is quite pleasant as a full range. Certainly not ready to throw a tweeter in the mix. Bass response is surprising, even in OB. But I shouldn't be that surprised with the higher Qts rating. Perhaps a break-in period will render a slightly fuller response on high end freq. If I remember, I will review it again, perhaps with the addition of a star. I just don't know enough yet for the 5th star.I have both drivers installed in a single baffle board with middle brace, just made it with scraps. It's not pretty, and certainly not a finished product. But this is one of my first, and so far it's been fun. One day, I will build something much more advanced. But want to get the idea down first before I spend a bunch of money.Good driver for this project. Look forward to listening more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ImpressedBought a pair of these speakers recently and have them on small baffles 24 x 18 ". Playing about a month now, sound is very nicely balanced and integrated with detail and bass that won't shake the house, but enough there to support most of the music I listen to. Example is on Eddie Cochran - Somethin' Else (hits) Guybo's bass is easily there. I drive them with a 5 watt solid state class A amp I built. These have a very pleasing sound and are affordable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great open baffle designI'm installing a sound system for a friend who owns a local bar, and we decided on a wall mounted open baffle design, the bottom of the baffle is angled down 30 degrees with two "wings" on each side at 45 degree angles from the front baffle, no parallel sides, mounted directly to the wall with two subwoofers for low end extension, and these drivers work amazingly, great low end for open baffle, especially for such a small open baffle, and amazingly natural sounding. She has three installed in the main bar area and one installed in the back room and loves to play them pretty loudly, great affordable sound system.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from neat little speakeri wanted to experiment with open baffle speakers so i figured id start cheap :-) i mounted these in 2-35" wide square's of Plexiglas (had them laying around) i honestly didn't think open baffle could have this kind of bass response. the high's kinda fall off round 15khz and theirs a harsh peek round 5khz. fun little experiment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Airstream travel trailer.I needed to replace and old Audiovox original speaker in a 1988 Airstream, it had to fit the original housing. These speakers don't look like much but deliver clean, crisp sound, not much bass but what 5" speaker does? They sounded tinny when I tested before putting them back in the wall mounted enclosure but after installed they sound very good for what they are. I cranked 20 watts per channel up and they were loud and clear. Problem solved for a budget price!

How many speakers come inside the box? Also im planning on using these to make a bluetooth speaker. The instructions i'm using are in this link. https://medium.com/@kthornbloom/how-to-build-a-bluetooth-speaker-b145dd7475af would these work for this?

Asked by: Fleet Foxes
These are sold individually and would work for that type of Bluetooth speaker.

Will these work as replacement for Galaxy Hot Spot speakers? Mine is a little powered 30 watt.

Asked by: Jimmya
The bolt holes will match up but these will not produce the same amount of output or handle the same amount of power as the Galaxy drivers. For low volumes they will work okay, but you might also need to add some sort of gaskets to create an air tight seal on the baffle.

Recommended Enclosure size and HT use

What would be the recommended enclosure type and size? Would you need some type of crossover in the cabinet? Also, could this be used in a cheap HT setup in a small apartment so long as a subwoofer is also used?
Asked by: billiam62
This driver can be used in a .2 cubic foot sealed box in your application without any crossover needed. The subwoofer will handle the lower frequencies so this would just be responsible for mid/high.

if I use an equalizer will I get the upper frequencies in fullrange use?

Asked by: emalixi
Yes.
Answered by: MattP

will a tweeter be helpful with this product for upper frequencies?

Asked by: emalixi
You will have to determine this upon listening to it, this is not really a question anyone can answer for you.

How is the high frequency response on these drivers?

Asked by: emalixi
Having not heard them I can only judge based on the frequency response graph. Everyone will hear high frequencies differently so objective answers may be impossible to get. It looks like a very wide range driver that doesn't start to lose output until about 8kHz. It also has a peak at 5kHz that will likely give the perception of more upper end extension than it really has.http://www.parts-express.com/pedocs/tech-diagrams/292-518-visaton-4800-technical-diagram.pdf
