Product Details

Visaton W100S-4 4" Woofer with Treated Paper Cone 4 Ohm

Visaton's 9020 W100S 4" woofer features a coated paper cone and durable rubber surround. A very balanced frequency response allows the W100S to be used as a woofer in small two-way speakers or a midbass/midrange in three-way speakers, with a crossover point as high as 5,000 Hz. This allows you to build a surround sound system with large speakers for front and left, while maintaining the same voicing in smaller surround satellite speakers. 4-ohm impedance for use in series pairs, which is great for MTM and center-channel speakers.

Note: For best bass performance, install the W130S into one of the following cabinets:
• A 0.14 cubic foot sealed cabinet (F3 is 100 Hz with a Qtc of 0.7).
• A 0.17 cubic foot cabinet tuned to 70 Hz with a 1-1/4" diameter port that is 2-3/8" long.
• A 0.35 cubic foot cabinet tuned to 56 Hz with a 1-1/4" diameter port that is 2" long.

Visaton W100S-4 4" Woofer with Treated Paper Cone 4 Ohm
Visaton W100S-4 4" Woofer with Treated Paper Cone 4 Ohm is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from The little speaker that can"tI wanted to like this driver, I really did. Solid spec's, paper cone, and good price point. The problem with buying an untried speaker is you never know what your gonna find. This driver will make somebody a great midrange. It has lots of "snap", and is very clean between 300 hz and 3k hz. That being said, 400 cu in ported to 80 hz in an mtm center chanel application coupled to a HiVi tn25 xovered at 3500 hz @12 db. Nothing below 150hz. Dead. I even pulled them back out and made sure I didn't do something amaturish with the polarity. Tried sealed, changed ports, a healthy adjustment on the eq will put the bass into them, but they stop sounding clean. I hope they break in and start sounding a little warmer. I'll post back up if they do.
