Product details

Dayton Audio DAEX32EP-4 Thruster 32mm Exciter 40W 4 Ohm


Dayton Audio's DAEX32EP-4 Thruster exciter is built to turn large, thick, rigid surfaces into speakers. The 32 mm voice coil is attached to a steel spider for maximum restoring force when large amounts of power are applied, making it perfect for large glass panes, furniture, and surfaces that would normally resist the effects of an exciter.


A neodymium magnet is employed to create maximum magnetic flux around the proprietary voice coil for increased sensitivity when compared to similar sized exciters. In turn, this reduces power requirements and makes it possible to use very small Class D audio amplifiers, without sacrificing total output.


To ensure maximum acoustic energy transfer between the transducer and the surface to which it is attached, 3M VHB (Very High Bond) adhesive is pre-applied to the main body ... just peel and stick! Two male spade quick-disconnect terminals are built onto the main body for quick electrical connection.


Note: An exciter's frequency response and sensitivity are completely dependent on the exciter's designated surface. Thinner, smaller materials will tend to be louder and create a mid/tweeter response. Thicker, larger materials (with multiple exciters) will be slightly quieter but result in a more full-range sound.

    Added these as a second pair of exciters on my existing speakers in series/parallel with a pair of DAEX32U-4 exciters, on two 10mm polyurethane foam sheets with a 10mm balsa frame. The sound is greatly improved; with warmer and a full-bodied output. The bass-range is slightly improved as well, while the sub-base range could still use some improvement, for this I'm considering building a new amp and a small subwoofer.

    Ein ganz interessanter Aufbau und damit verbundene Wirkungsweise. Leider war ein Klebepad überaltert und musste ersetzt werden.

    Surprisingly good little driver. Have only tested in a proof of concept set up, but very promising indeed.

    For a DML projekt on polystyrene worked OK. A bit exaggerated midrange

    Excellent power and performance for their size. I'm using four units directly attached to a bucket seat in a sim racing application and they deliver high quality tactile feedback in the 20 to 185Hz range. Highly recommended!

    Excellent units, work fantastically well for Sim Racing enthusiasts when installing to the back of a seat. Used with Simhub I am working on 8 channel based effects and powered with 2x Behringer EPQ 304 amps. These will accept 2.8mm cable crimps. <br />

    This is a very capable exciter able to drive large panels to loud volumes. It is well built and easy to apply. I found on a 600mm by 120mm 3mm ply panel I needed very little eq to flatten the response. Used with a subwoofer crossing over at 100hz you can get an excellent result.

  • GQ By Good quality and loud 40w drivers for DIY projects! on 16-07-2019 23:55

    5 / 5

    As a first DIY project I decided to go with the DAEX32EP-4 due to the good reviews. I found that they are are very good quality for the price and if hooked up properly they put out some nice sounds. I am planning to use a DSP and EQ it further down the road.

    I do recommend them for beginners in DIY projects such as myself. I found using them a breeze.

    Now i own a set of DML speakers which I'm very proud of putting together in up to 1 hour. Can't wait for the next project.

    Thank you SoundImports!

    Deze thruster ernaar ik als een optimaal product. Zijn geringe formaat, hoge belastbaarheid( met correcte filtering tegen lage tonen) en zowel klankkwaliteit en rendement, laatsten afhankelijk van juiste materiaalkeuze plaat en positionering - zowel van de plaats van de thruster op het plaatmateriaal alsmede de plaatsing van deze plaat- wordt beloont met een geluid die je eerder bij high end verwacht dan van een luidsprekersysteem welke zo voordelig en eenvoudig te maken is. Neem daarbij de beste subwoofer met een flinke output, om de thruster partij te geven.
    Om die reden heb ik een Beyma PA subwoofer 15 inch gekoppeld aan een Hypex 400W module in een juist afgestemde bass reflexkast 18 mm multiplex. Met bovengenoemde kan men naast stereo ( aan te raden) ook meerkanaalsweergave behappen.
    Reeds stereo zal een openbaring zijn, de verbijsterde blikken van luisteraars vertellen mij wat ik ook zelf beleef, het klinkt onwaarschijnlijk goed.....

    These are highly recommendable speaker elements for those interested in distributed mode audio, especially for surround speakers in home cinema, where they can be hidden in poster boards etc...
