Product Details

Visaton W130S-8 5" Woofer with Treated Paper Cone 8 Ohm

Visaton's 9023 W130S 5" woofer features a coated paper cone and durable rubber surround. A very balanced frequency response allows the W130S 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 4,000 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. 

Note: For best bass performance, install the W130S into one of the following cabinets:
• A 0.25 cubic foot sealed cabinet (F3 is 86 Hz with a Qtc of 0.75).
• A 0.71 cubic foot cabinet tuned to 44 Hz with a 1-1/4" diameter port that is 1-9/16" long.
• A 1.06 cubic foot cabinet tuned to 39 Hz with a 2-3/8" diameter port that is 4-3/4"" long.

Visaton W130S-8 5" Woofer with Treated Paper Cone 8 Ohm
Visaton W130S-8 5" Woofer with Treated Paper Cone 8 Ohm is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from DID THE TRICK FOR ME!I got a pair of these to replace the woofers in a Radio Shack center channel speaker system. The surrounds were in horrible shape and around 20 years old. So it was just a shot in the dark but they sound SO much better; very smooth and surprisingly decent bass! BTW, I'm just using this system to avoid using the built-in speakers in a 32" flat screen TV. The picture's great but the sound is abysmal in most flat screens.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little speaker, especially for the money.I build a two way using this driver and a Vifa BC25SC06-04 1" Textile Dome Tweeter and this little speaker rocks. Cross it as high as 4K (LR4) or 2.5K (B2) and it sounds very clean. There are some breakup modes at and above 4K you'll want to attenuate so I recommend crossing it no higher than 3.5K if you want it clean. Good, clean, tight bass extension in a small sealed enclosure. Don't know about ported. Makes a great HT satellite in a larger room (>4000 cu ft). For smaller rooms you might want a smaller driver. See unfinished version in thumbnail. Partial build thread and crossover here:

Will it work good in .56 ft³ cabinet ported? Also what would be port size and tuning?

Asked by: jeezmo
Yes this will work very well in that volume. I would recommend our 1.5" diameter, 4" long flared port, part number 260-402 for a tuning frequency of 39 Hz.

What are the best options for 4 ohm MTM? Enclosure? Tweeter? Crossover?

Asked by: ACOLL
I would suggest a 1cuft. enclosure tuned to 50hz with a 3" port 5.25" long.The tweeter I would use is a Dayton ND20FB-4.The crossover would be at 4khz with a 3rd order butterworth on the woofer pair and a 2nd order bessel on the tweeter.Space the drivers as close together as possible.Have the woofers almost touching and the tweeter nestled between them as close as you can.In order to get the 2Ω 20W resistor take two 4Ω 10W resistors and place them in parallel together.
