5" Full Range Monitor Driver Versatile driver offers high power capacity and wide frequency response making it popular in a variety of applications including compact studio and stage monitors.
I used 8 of these in a large center channel array along with 8 fabric dome tweeters. With very little equalization these drivers delivered exceptionally clear dialogue with minimal EQ. Very pleased... but to be fair I am putting very little power into each one so I can't speak to their max output or bass extension abilities. I'm running each one in a small sealed enclosure mid passed at 120-6Khz.Only downside is the terminal setup sticks out too far and the tabs will have to be bent inward on each driver to clear the mounting surface for pretty much any application, not sure what they were thinking with that one.
I have three Galaxy Hot Spot monitors with two 4 1/2" speakers each. I got a Peavey monitor (one 5 1/2" speaker with a tweeter) and wanted to change it to a 16 ohm cabinet similar to the Hot Spots. These MCM 5" driver fit the bill. HUGE magnets and enough sensitivity. They sound great. This may become my favorite monitor. I'm thinking of trying these in a couple line array/compact column speakers.
this speaker sounds excellent, is not expensive and is paper instead of poly. which to my ears makes a big difference. this speaker works great as a mid in a three or four way system if you want to cross over at other than spec. freq. you might give them a shot if you're on a tight buget/or not.
I used 2 of these speakers to replace midrange speakeres in my older JBL speaker boxes. The range of these speakers makes them perfect for this application because they can handle whatever frequencies in the midrange without limitations. I noticed a definite improvement in sound quality and increased db's. Previously bought some great bass speakers for same boxes from MCM so I should probably rename my JBL's to JBL/MCM, lol. The only complaint I have is that with all the speaker installs I had to drill new holes for the mounting but since boxes are vented, no big deal. Really satisfied with these purchases and MCM's price point can't be beat!
I designed a three way system that uses a 10 inch woofer 55-2951 in a seperate box and four of these speakers in a three row, two column configuration, with titanium dome super tweeters in the top row. They really do the job of extending the midbass and making the midrange pop by providing a nice midrange presence boost while managing to resist feedback quite well. Their power handing easily allows for using multiple drivers in series. Throw the right mix of woofers and tweeters in there and you've got a three way system that'll handle anything you can throw at it. I would give it 5/5 stars for quality but can't do that because one of the drivers I ordered sounded like the frequency response curve really dropped of in the 80-200Hz range. This was not a problem for me but something to consider depending on your application
These make excellent midrange speakers. I have mounted enclosures inside my speaker boxes for them (due to the open back design of these speakers) and replaced the original midranges in my home boxes. What a difference in the sound, the vocals sound more lifelike and so does the guitar and other instruments. For the price of these it is well worth your money and time, you will definitely be happy with the results.
P.S. I made my inner boxes out of 3/4" particle board then screwed & glued the seams.
not bad at low power.
phasing occurs quickly as frequency rises [see PDF specs].
usable for guitar speakers.
usable for midrange.
good for a computer subwoofer [keep away from monitors].
usable for door car speakers [handles excessive bass fairly well]
