  • New Woven Glass Fiber PC Series

    Since I have a fascination with 3" speakers, I stumbled upon this new driver. Plot looks decent and looks like it might get decent lows in the right enclosure. For a full ranger, what am I missing?

    TC9 and TG9 have some real competition! Looks like a great driver.
    Don't waste your money on a new set of speakers, you get more mileage from a cheap pair of sneakers. Next phase, new wave, dance craze, anyways it's still rock and roll to me!

          No- I was trying to clarify for myself. I see where it says poly damped GF now.

            They remind me of the PRV 4MR60-4.

              Indeed, except with a response that can actually be used full-range. The specs are very similar to the PRV otherwise.

                I have been looking for a 3" full range driver that can go lower than the PS95 but maintain a good portion of the highs. I am intrigued enough to submit an order. I would be nice if it had the smoothness of the "Dayton" W3-1053.

                    Having a closer look, the 2.5" version is unfortunate. It lacks the copper in the motor, and as a result has a droopy high frequency response. To me it makes the 2.5" version completely pointless since I could pay $2 more on the 3" model and get a much better speaker IMO.

                      PE needs to carry a few PRs that might work well with these in small enclosures.

                      Something like this, for example - http://www.tb-speaker.com/products/pr01

                      ..or this - http://www.ebay.com/itm/2pcs-105mm-6...MAAOSwSlBYtW4h


                      ​The only small PR listed on PE's site is the Peerless 3.5" one. Not much variety to choose from.

                        That looks a lot like the Scan Dicovery fiberglass cone. High Qms and copper in the motor. That is lot of engineering for an 11 dollar speaker and with pretty good sensitivity in the midrange to boot.

                          They'll probably work great as a cheap midrange. Compared to the TC9 and TG9, my only worry is the lack of venting under the spider and dustcap. The 4" has some venting, but the 3" does not.

                            I am interested in the 8 ohm 3". Description shows 4 ohm but that is misprint. I am using Vifa TC7FD00-04 2.5" now but I would rather have higher power and 8 ohm. The Vifa has very low distortion. Hope this new driver is at least as good.
                            I was tired and got tired again so now I am Re tired.
