Visaton FRS7-8 2.5" Full-Range Speaker 8 Ohm
Visaton FRS7-8 2.5" Full-Range Speaker 8 Ohm is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes a Good MidrangeI bought these to use as midrange in an old pair of Realistic Electrostat 2a's that I found at an estate sale. The Electrostat's are beautiful speakers and have four rectangle ribbon tweeters in a square box pattern in the upper half of the speaker they did not work so I took them out, the rectangle slots are about 4" X 1 3/4". I didn't want to remove the baffles and cut new holes because the grill cloth was attached to them and they were in perfect condition so I glued in a new inner baffle on top of the old one with 2" holes that lined up with the old ribbon slots then mounted these little Visaton full-range speakers for the mids over the lower slot and the then a 2" paper cone tweeter over the upper slot and a 1 3/8" ID bass port over one of the side slots, then I replaced the old woofer with a Dayton Audio DC200-8 8" Classic Woofer, all of which I bought at Parts Express except the crossover. I used some old bozak 3 way's with adjustment for Bright, Normal and Mellow settings, have mine set to Mellow (not sure where the crossover points are). The sound is clean and seperated, you can hear all instruments with clarity and feel the bass, I'm happy with them. Hope this helps.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What a differenceI had cutouts already in my 2011 Suzuki Equator but no speakers. So I purchased these and installed them. I actually enjoy driving around again, having the speakers up high makes a really big difference in sound quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great SoundChoose this speaker to replace 2 similar ones. Other than drilling new holes, installation was a snap. Speaker set is 20 plus years old. Not ready to upgrade, still sounds good.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too hot for me.I was going to use this in a 3-way system along with the Beston RT001A and a 6-1/2" woofer, using a typical 12dB/octave crossover with mids crossed at 500 and highs at 5000 Hz. All drivers were rated at 88dB SPL and frequency response graphs all indicate I should have had a pretty level output all the way through both crossover points. Even after padding down this mid it was still squawky and a bit distorted. It's likely my own fault for failing to remember that I really prefer a good deal of midrange scoop and also for failing to notice that the driver fs is too close to the crossover point. If you cross it at 700Hz or higher and match it to a driver with a higher SPL you may have good results. It just didn't work for my particular application. I ordered the FRS8 and it yielded much better results. Smoother response and no padding required.
