Visaton W200S-4 8" Woofer with Treated Paper Cone 4 Ohm

Visaton's 9029 W200S 8" woofer features a coated paper cone, durable rubber surround, and a bumped back plate to allow all 3.5 mm of Xmax to be used with an excursion limit of ±10 mm.

Visaton W200S-4 8" Woofer with Treated Paper Cone 4 Ohm is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome!!I just got the 8 Ohm version of this woofer the sound was excellent much better then the Gem Sound woofers that that these replaced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for.I had been looking for quite a while for an 8" 4 ohm "mid" to cover the 750hz-3000hz range to replace a pair of infinity paper cone woofers I have been using for this duty. The infinity actually does a good job but not as well as this 9029 visaton.Blew me away as soon as I installed it.I was skeptical about the upper 3000hz range but this handles it nicely.vocals are sweet and mid bass hits awesome.This "woofer" blends well with the 8" Dayton reference woofer and the Vifa tweeter.Buy these you won't regret it.I enclosed a photo,I built these from scratch and they totally blow away the Klipsh next to them even with the infinty 8" on top.After building these I couldn't wait to get rig of the Klipsh "Dogs"

Visaton W200S-4 8" Woofer with Treated Paper Cone 4 Ohm

any chance these would do well in an infinite baffle application (vehicle door)?

Asked by: bobd
These will work okay in a car door, but I would not expect much below about 60-70 Hz from them on the bottom end.

this driver does great re QTC for a DQ-12

could this be a possible viable replacement for the 8" in a dahlquist dq-12?
Asked by: m0reilly
Yes, it's the best of all worlds. good low frequency and enough midrange so you can cross over to whatever tweeter you have. Consider replacing both woofers though, so they match.

Vented as a mid?

Ok where to start?I purchased 2 of these to replace some 8" infinity paper woofers that were being used in the 750-3000hz range as mids.The mids "these Visatons" are on top of the tweeter and the 8in reference woofer on bottom 3way I had to Enclose the woofer and want to know if I would improve the sound of this visaton "mid" by venting the sealed enclosure which it now shares with the tweeter? I also may try to find a lower crossover hz for this mid any suggestions are appreciated.I already had the 8inch opening and would have rather used a smaller dia. mid I know,but this is what I have to work with. Pic incl shows speaker with old paper infinity which has been replaced by this visaton. 4ohm crossover and drivers btw.
Asked by: Doofus
With a crossover at 750 Hz venting will not affect anything for the midrange. If the woofer and mid share the same chamber in the enclosure you will want to have these in two separate chambers.

Used as a mid? 3000hz?

I have been looking for some 8in 4ohm drivers to replace vintage Infinity paper cone speakers which cover the 750hz -3000hz range? How would this sound at the upper end?
Asked by: Doofus
This should work well as a midrange but I would say 3k is about the limit. The higher a larger diameter woofer plays, the more suseptable to beaming and cone breakup issues. The cone material on this will help with breakup nodes but beaming is due to the cone diameter itself. I usually recommend crossing woofers as low as the tweeter can safely handle.
