Default Tang Band W5-704D 5-1/4" Woofer-- has anybody used this?

A new thread for this item.

Has anybody used this? It has apparently been around for a while but only recently discussed for using in FR setups.

GM gave an MLTL sim for a cabinet.


I'd be trying to use it stock in some cabinet makings I have.

'Been looking for a project in the 5" range and the newer Fostex
is too rich for my blood.

I have a pair of these that have been sitting in their boxes for what seems like a year or two. I'm also interested to hear what kind of results people have been getting from them.

Well, you could always get one out and put it on a board or something,
you know, just for grins.

Default Data sheet

Is there a data sheet for this driver?

I've never navigated the Tangband site with much success.

At PE (Parts Express) the a-b-c measurements look off.

"A" should be the overall flange width. B should be the screw centers
and C is the depth.

But B looks to be 2 plus inches different than A. Perhaps 4 7/8 is the
hole cutout which would make sense. It does not make sense for the
Screw center measurement.

If I did this, It'd be a piece I made with a 5 in hole saw. The cutout for the test box is exactly 5 1/4.

I'm hoping to sneak by without unless for later tweaks.

However one of those small ones you used with the B20
might have a place.

The driver has been around for a couple years now, but now one
has used it yet.

I'd like to go with a 5 " Fostex but that one is about 5x as much.

I did a simple little 2 way using these and the Vifa DX25 here: http://htguide.com/forum/showthread.php4?t=28282

Fairly easy driver to work with and doesn't do anything offensive. Bass is decent given the size, but you run out of xmax quickly.

Yes, click on 'woofer', then scroll down and click on whichever driver you want.........

Ok. Got it and saved it.

145 mm for the screw centers doesn't give me much to bite into.

For this I wanted to use up some pieces from other jobs.

I better check the depth too.
