Default Frequency range of acoustic 6 string?

What is the frequency range that an acoustic guitar is most commonly played in?

Is there a 3.5" to 5" speaker that would do well at reproducing acoustic guitar sounds?

I should have mentioned the intended use. I want to try hanging a speaker in front of the sound hole of a guitar for extended times as to induce artificial playing.

I have read a few articles on the subject with varying results. I think it would be a fun experiment.

This is a driver I thought would work off the top of my head.

Acoustic guitar (if I'm reading my chart correctly): 80-1300 Hz in round numbers, give or take (fundamentals - not including overtones). So the P.E. driver should do OK but maybe start to roll off at the very bottom.

This is a cool link!

It list acoustic guitars at 80 to 880htz

Would the Dayton 4" be able to get down around the 80htz range in a sealed enclosure?

Here's what Zaph says:

"This is a great performing 3" driver. The frame is a very nice casting with better than average ventilation. Very smooth, wideband response. Copper appears to be used in the right place in this motor, for very low distortion and no inductive rise. Could be used full range with a breakup notch and a shelving BSC filter, but would be even better paired with a cheap neo tweeter. The cost is not that low for a 3" driver, but considering the performance, value is still very high."
