  • FS: NEW Seas 7" Aluminum Cone 4Ω woofers

    Seas custom 7" (6-1/2″ nominal) 4Ω woofers based on L18RNX/P but with black anodized dustcap+cone and a low frequency optimized motor.

    Great for DIY Audio home or car use. Similar to ScanSpeak, Eton, Accuton, Morel, etc. Made in Norway.

    BNIB, $38 USD each, many available.

    4pcs, $175USD shipped to CONUS
    2pcs $95USD shipped to CONUS

    Shipping to US and Canada only. No overseas shipping - it's crazy expensive!

    Suggested Enclosures


    Suggested cabinet volumes are between 7 and 15L. The latter yields a Butterworth alignment with a bass system resonance of 50Hz and a frequency response that is -3dB at 50Hz.


    Suggested cabinet volumes are between 10 and 25L. The latter yields a Butterworth alignment when tuned to 29Hz with a 2" ID x 10" port. The frequency response of this alignment is -3dB at 30Hz.

    Measurements and Example Crossover

    This custom Seas woofer was installed in a sealed enclosure and a passive crossover was designed for an acoustic 2nd order LR low pass transfer function with a crossover frequency of 2KHz. This is a great transducer for a 2 or 3 way bookshelf or tower speaker crossed over to a midrange from 100 to 750Hz or a tweeter at 2 to 3KHz.
