Default possibly the most bass from a 2 x 5 inch television speaker?

I can honestly hear the bass from clear across the room when the speaker is in free air (just lying facing sideways)
it's pretty clear too running off of a 400 watt amplifier
and the speaker is 16 ohms and 5 watts
I put it up to the port on my subwoofer box for the 12 inch subwoofer
and the bass is insane it pretty moves the 12 inch woofer (a little bit) like a massive passive radiator!
the bass is enough to say wow for such a small speaker!

I haven't blown the speaker yet and it still sounds good loud and clear with a lot of nice bass too even free air it still sounds good
it's just a speaker I pulled out of a old junk TV
it moves a good half an inch at full volume! it's REALLY cool to see such a small speaker do so much work! lol but the magnet on the back gets slightly warm after a while but it never gets hot and it doesn't even have a smell after playing for a few minutes o:
I tried an 8ohm 6 watt speaker and it blew the second I turned the volume up O_o lol what a rip-off

but the other little speaker just keeps pounding away!

has anyone ever encountered a decent speaker like this before?

The Tang Band minisubs can do a lot for their size.

Got any photos of this driver?

I'll search google and see if I can find something similar or the same! I think it has a coding on the back of the magnet

FOUND IT!

This is the EXACT speaker that I'm using!
and it sounds GREAT!

I'm sure you are hearing perceived bass from 2nd order harmonic distortion.
Maybe even 3rd and 4rth too.
It's cool.....sometimes I am surprised by things too

Years ago I had a pair of small (I'm guessing 3") speakers in fully sealed enclosures of the kind that go on rear car parcel shelves. Just little boxes really. And I hooked these up to my Pioneer A80 amp of the time (150 W/rms) and was gobsmacked at the volume, the quality, and the bass available. If you turned the bass up on the amp and adjusted the treble and closed your eyes you would have no idea you were listening to something so tiny.

realflow... if you can get hold of a big piece of cardboard (not a box just a flat piece) then try cutting a hole in it just a bit smaller than the speaker and hold it up against that. More bass

Yeah I cut a large cardboard box a flat piece out
and cut a hole out to fit my speaker in the middle and taped the speaker into it
and then I duct taped the flat cardboard piece along with the speaker over the large hole where my 12 inch subwoofer goes in the big box

it really really sounds good! if I closed my eyes I would think it's at least a 4 or 5 inch speaker! it sounds good for a 2 x 5 (technically the cone surface is much smaller even than that)
and it really does sound good honestly
along with a horn tweeter and a super tweeter (well it works like one.. it's a high frequency alarm from a smoke detector alarm and it's really sharp and clear hooked up along with the speaker and the horn tweeter)

the sound honestly is pretty amazing it thumps my chair i can feel the vibrations in my chair lol
