Visaton FRS8-8 3.3" Full-Range Speaker 8 Ohm
Visaton FRS8-8 3.3" Full-Range Speaker 8 Ohm is rated 3.75 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Visaton FRS8-8These are great little speakers for a great price. They are not cheap knock-offs, and offer very decent range for their size. I'm very happy with mine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from RCA ReplacementGreat replacement for blown drivers in an older RCA speaker system that are NLA from the MFG. Hard to distinguish the difference between these and the originals.
Date published: 2013-08-09
Rated 2 out of 5 by from So-soThis little driver does have some good things going for it:1. Acceptable high frequency response.2. Overall mellow presentation without the shoutiness of other full range drivers.Unfortunately, we were very easily able to destroy our sample pieces very quickly and without any warning at moderate power levels in a sealed enclosure.What this tells me is that this probably shouldn't be used anywhere near its resonance, and that a reasonably steep crossover slope is a nice idea.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good choice for 3-way systemsAfter first getting the FRS7 and having less than desirable results I got this to try instead. The combination of a low fs and the output level make this a great choice for a 3-way system. For my purpose I'm very happy with it's performance. But for a full range, satellite or micro 2-way system this may not be ideal because of the low SPL. If you like a scooped midrange sound in your 3-way projects this is the ticket.

What would be the smallest internal box volume for F3 at about 150Hz? What F3 can I expect if I place this driver in an internal volume of 0.05 cubic foot? Thanks for your help,

Asked by: Khanh Nguyen
The F3 in 0.06 cubic feet is about 111 Hz, dropping this to 0.05 will hardly change anything in terms of F3, so this should reach 150 Hz without a problem in that volume.

What size port/vent is recommended as optimal (.2 cu ft/ F3 68 Hz)? I would like to use these as a small (and inexpensive)office set up with the Kinter MA 600 as an amp/tuner.

Asked by: meMark
A 1" diameter, 1/2" long vent will work well for these figures. If you are using 1/2" thick material for the box, a simply 1" diameter hole is all you need.

What is the proper method to mount these drivers on the rear side of a baffle?

Asked by: Millstonemike
These are intended to be mounted from the front, but if you cut the hole to the exact outside diameter of the small cardboard gasket it should mount fine from the rear. You may need to add some caulking in order to provide an air tight seal.

smallest sealed enclosure for surround satellites

what is a good sealed size to use these drivers in surround satelites?
Asked by: skinnyD
A 5" external cube will work perfectly for a sealed design for this driver.
