  • Any Opinions/Tests Done On New Dayton Audio RS180P-8 Paper Cone?

    Has anyone tested or listened to the new paper cone Dayton Audio RS180P-8? Looks interesting!

    Here's a link if you haven't seen one yet. http://www.parts-express.com/dayton-...8-ohm--295-365

    I don't think they are available yet. Just like the other two paper coned RS drivers. I have already ordered a pair of the RS150P's but they haven't shipped yet.

      I am also very curious about these. I suggested to PE people years ago that we, or at least I,
      am interested in modern low distorting motors with the smooth response of the older treated
      paper and very smooth poly cone designs.

      Cone mass (11.5g) is rather low for a 7".

        There are now four paper RS drivers listed 100, 125, 150 and 180.

            Yes they are Rory, but I don't see any measurements posted for any of the drivers. Will these be up soon?

              How about 4 ohm? Should it be out soon?

                I'll be happy to test and post if anyone wants to send me a pair. I'm more interested in the 7 and 8" ones but would test any version now.

                  Hi everyone,

                  Sorry about the delay in providing spec sheets. Our graphic art department is fairly swamped with work right now but I will see that the spec sheets are uploaded to DaytonAudio.com and PE's site as soon as we have them finished.

                  The 4-ohm versions of the 4", 5", 6", and 7" paper cone RS drivers and the 8" models in 4 and 8 ohm versions are still under development. We should be able to hit early spring, but as with everything there are unknowns. I appreciate everyone's patience with this.
                  Best Regards,

                    Thanks Rory.

                      Mr. Tony the Mailman (thats what our kids call him) just delivered my pair of RS150P-8!!!! They look fantastic! The new cone material really looks sharp and the build quality appears to be spot on with the original RS line. I'll start a new thread hopefully later today with some initial measurements. I need to make another insert for my quasi infinite baffle before I can make any FR or distortion measurements.

                      Hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable Christmas.

                          Threw a pair of RS180P on the WT3 and the T/S parameters basically match the revised specs on the new Dayton sheet (not the preliminary specs on the PE site). Excellent consistency too, as expected.

                          Looks like these should work well in a vented 2-way with about 0.5cuft and a f3 around 50Hz.
