      Woof Woof! But this is no dog.

      Overall: 5 out of 5

      Great sounding woofer. Super heavy duty feeling....time will tell how long it last but for now it feels very solid. Easily has the feel of a much more expensive speaker. Nice size voice coil and crossed over at around 5K (cap only) with the MCM Audio Select $5 1" soft dome tweeter. Makes a fantastic 2 way system.

      Don't expect booming bass but expect nice tight lows. They will most likely take a while to break in because of the heavy cone and stiff foam but I prefer that over the opposite. Should keep them from overextending. Anyway....I'll be trying some of the 10" versions soon.

      Great replacement drivers!

      Overall: 5 out of 5

      A friend of mine had a pair of Paisley SPL 3000 monitor speakers. After about 25 years the foam surrounds had all but disappeared. He asked if I could revive them. I chose these 8 inch drivers as replacements for several reasons. First, they look exactly like the original drivers. Second, the crossover point (2.2 KHz) was a perfect match. Third, the stated specs were extremely tight (I measured them myself). Physically, they were a drop in replacement. After 80 hours of continuous break in I was extremely impressed with the sound of the newly restored speakers. These drivers are well worth the price. If you are searching for an 8 inch driver as a replacement or a new build, consider these 8 inch gems, you will not be disappointed.

      I just received these from MCM a couple days ago and made sure I waited a couple of days before reviewing them. They are replacements for the woofers in my old Paisley Research Reference Two speakers. I was a bit unsure of the sound quality for the price, but am pleasantly surprised. They have plenty of bass for an 8" speaker, and sound good through to the range as well, which is a good thing since the Paisley's are only 2-way. I've had them rocking out some classic rock and country the past couple of days, and the guitar and voice sound quality is excellent. I would purchase these again in a heartbeat.

      I used two of these as replacement woofers in a set of klipsch speakers. The value is definitely there.well made speaker.
