  • Dayton Audio DA115-8 4" Aluminum Cone Woofer

    I bought a pair of these sexy looking woofers, liked the price for $12 a peice. Couldn't pass this up.

    My question for you guys, has anyone ever used these in a full range?

    Pe says it plays to 16,000hz and the pdf says it plays to 15,000hz

    Either way thats still full range, in winisd they model really nice in a ported
    enclosure.

    I've read a review, that a guy posted on pe's page, said he droped them in a enclosure and they sounded well in a full range appilacation.

    Has anyone had a pair of these or have worked with them?

    Thanks

    Bart

      I think it's going to need some help. You can see from the FR curve that there's an 8 dB suck out from 2KHz to 7KHz. You're going to hear that.

                they were fun to make. neice uses them with a lepai and her laptop in the bathroom. pretty nice bass for a four inch. mtm made them efficient.
                painting them was a little like performing an exorcisim. the power of music compells you, the power of................................................ ....:D

                  Thanks for the heads up. What is the cost for the corner clamps?

                  I can just contact the store and see about having some shipped up. Easy enough.

                    Bessey makes a sweet corner clamp for $50 big ones. It works inside or outside. I own one of it and three H-F "knock-off's". Woodcraft had a less expensive corner clamp a couple of summers ago but I missed them due to back surgery. Zeek, you know the "right" way to do corners is a workbench with benchdogs and cawls, but do any of us have that? May-bee, zum olde Francais grognard frume zee 15th Cen-Tur-ee, eh?

                      Never even thought of it as a full range, built the Deullati MTM with them. They've been fairly well received, you might want to check them out.

                          I don't care what the ad copy says about that driver. It's a woofer. And a damn nice one. My boxes model at 50Hz extension, and Wolf has told me that he feels that they're getting into the 40's. I think the whole DA- series is a tremendous value, and seriously underrated.


                          Buy some. Use 'em. You won't regret it. At all.

                            Seems they were around $50 or so. I could have a look next week.

                              Didn't someone do and mtm with the MCM 55-1853 years ago.
                              They can be picked up for $9 now.
                              We could have a battle of the metal 4" mtm's here!
                              Does anyone have a link to that build? I think it was at the HT forum.


                              Found it. Harebrained!!
