    Product details

    Tang Band W5-2143 5" Paper Cone Full Range Driver 8 Ohm


    Tang Band's versatile W5-2143 full range driver uses an underhung voice coil, which places the entire coil inside the magnetic gap, for the utmost in control and accuracy. Designed for minimum distortion and resonance, the bamboo fiber paper cone and structured surround produces smooth response without harsh peaks or dips. The aluminum phase plug improves off axis response while also acting as a shorting ring providing greater control of the voice coil resulting in lower distortion.

    Very nice driver for the money. Excellent vocal reproduction and overall frequency response. Sensitivy is nice and high so they don't take much driving. Distortion is quite low at around 1.5% peak THD in the low frequencies and much less in the mid-bass all the way to treble. I was expecting these drivers to have quite a hot top-end but to my surprise, they are actually quite flat. I think that may be due to these drivers being very directional at the upper frequencies and that i listen slightly off axis.

    I put these drivers in a 25L ported enclosure tuned to 46Hz (internal bracing, bitumen pad sound deadening, 3M TC1803 acoustic wadding and some recycled wool behind the driver) and they are a pleasure to listen to. I was also surprised by how much bass these littles 5" drivers can produce. I used active baffle-step compensation before the amplifier as to maintain driver efficiency and still have a flat frequency response. I highly recommend these speakers to anyone.
