Dayton Audio DAEX25 Sound Exciters turn virtually any solid object into a speaker by vibrating it at speeds of up to 20,000 cycles per second. The vibrations modulate the air, which is then decoded by the brain as sound. We've tested and placed Sound Exciters on nearly everything you can imagine; under a desk, in an overhead cabinet, behind picture frames, inside cans, behind paper plates, inside binders, cardboard, scraps of wood and even the box they came in! Test the limits of your imagination. Each stick on Sound Exciter is designed for a wide frequency response and great sensitivity. Built-in push terminals enable quick connection to speaker wire (sold separately). Strong 3M adhesive pads affix to nearly any solid surface for secure, long-lasting playback. Sold in pairs.

Dayton Audio DAEX25 Sound Exciter Pair
Dayton Audio DAEX25 Sound Exciter Pair is rated 4.2453 out of 5 by 53.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from You need to consider this for amazing soundSome years ago my father built a beautiful home for a doctor here in the Atlanta area. He used similar devices to wire each room for in home entertainment sound. I am so glad to have found a source again. After installing them in my residence, I have amazed my friends with just how good this sound reproduction is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasently SuprisedI purchased a couple of these a couple months ago and have since ordered more. After much experimenting I settled on two speaker designs. Two I attached to the inside of a couple of old guitars. (unplayable but cool looking) I got for cheap. I used a couple terminal cups with hi and mid pass filters. And suspended a tweeter in the sound hole. I use them in the bedroom with a small sub I've had to beef up the sound when watching t.v. The other set I attached to some poster board I doubled up with adhesive to create a couple modern looking wall hanging speakers. I will probably use for some side or rear surround speakers. Neither one of my creations would ever be good enough to use for any reference purposes. However.. when set up well and paired with a sub they are pretty cool. If for nothing else a good conversation piece.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My Sound Exciter BuildFun speaker build. You can't hear the base in the video obviously, since it was recorded on a phone! The friends I played these for couldn't tell the difference between these and my store bought speakers when played at medium volume.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful if you know how to use themYou really need to do research in order to make the most of these speakers...I've used a variety of surface now and have settled on a couple designs.1) First of all, get rid of that dang outer structure, it does not help the transducer at all.2) You need thin but rigid surfaces (Same principle as a speaker cone). I went to Michael's Arts and Crafts and purchased 3 things: Heavy-paper for painting (buy the thickest or near thickest), 1/4" cork board, and white Styrofoam insulation.a) The heavy paper worked wonders for reproducing the majority of what you would call "full range." If your transducers like these or similar have a high-pass filter (capacitor), then clip it off to open up the bass response. Tuning the EQ on my amp gave some bass response.b) The cork and foam did well with bass, but that was because the low-frequency waves would get lost within the cells. This is to say that the bass is heard - not felt - and mostly heard inside the foam or cork. When it comes to bass response, air-movement is your friend and transducers like this weren't made for Xmax :-P.c) Play around with the thickness of the stiff and heavy paper you use. Buy multiple kinds to experiment. Also experiment with spacing. On a 4'x8' sheet, I found that 6 to 8 evenly spaced transducers maximized the capabilities. In general, I think you need 6" to 9" inches of radius around each transducer. You don't really want each driver's vibrations interfering, but you also don't want dead spots.I'm not an expert by any means, but this is my experience and have gotten some successful transducer speakers.P.S. If you're creative, arrange, cut, and paint your art-board transducer speakers to give them some style on your walls. You can make some cool and modern looking stuff!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works wellI recommend some experimentation. We didn't have enough time to try it on different surfaces. Used on laminated ½" plywood. Probably too thick but it still put out decent sound.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from haven't worked well for me... or I was expecting too much?I tried foamcore and/or .032" aluminum sheet, just couldn't get results anywhere CLOSE to listenable speakers (even with a backing subwoofer). Output is low, poor freq response. Your results may vary, and I had to try it out to really know, but now that I know... I wish I had the money back for other projects instead. I could see some very limited, perhaps voice-quality-only applications, or novelty item, but that's it. Stick with real speakers, they don't even cost that much more, esp. 2nd hand.

Dayton Audio DAEX25 Sound Exciter Pair

We mounted DAEX25s on our bedroom windows, and we love them! The adhesive is failing on one, though, and I'm having trouble locating replacement pads, for the 3 arms plus the larger central circular adhesive. Where can I buy replacement adhesive pads?

Asked by: ATXPhotog
Unfortunately we do not have replacement pads available for these. You can use 3M double sided foam tape with a thickness of 1/16" to get the same results.

Any suggestions as to type of glue to use with these? Also should I apply it to all surfaces that already have adhesive?

Asked by: TheMTG
These exciters come with adhesive pads for installation and do not require additional glue. But if the pads are insufficient for your application, then you would need to choose an adhesive rated for the surface that they are being attached to. You may want to lightly apply some adhesive to both surfaces to adhere the exciter. Please contact our tech support for more help with this question, tech@parts-express.com or 800-338-0531 x1.

Looking to mount these facing down. Can I super glue the Exciter to a mount, then have a posterboard speaker hang from the Exciter, or it better to mount the board at the corners and just have the Exciter attach to the top of it?

Asked by: NathanV
I would recommend to mount the board at the corners and just have the exciters attached to the top.

is this item sold as "a pair" or as a single speaker?  In other words, do I get two speakers for $11.90?

Asked by: Miespost
These are sold in pairs, you will get two exciters for that price.

Hi. What is the frequency range for this exciters ? Thank you. Dan

The frequency response of these exciters will depend on what they are mounted to.
