Home audio speakers, such as the Dayton Reference series, come with "bucking magnets" on the back of the speaker, directly behind the speaker's magnet.

Bucking magnets are added to home audio speakers for video shielding. Due to the high strength of some speaker magnets, the stray magnetic flux of those magnets can actually screw up the picture of some televisions, computer screens, etc. So, they add a bucking magnet to those drivers, which is basically another magnet "out of polarity" with the speaker's magnet, thus canceling out that stray magnetic flux allowing you to place them within close proximity to TV's, etc.

However, this bucking magnet adds to the depth of the speaker, obviously undesireable for car audio people concerned with depth. So they "debuck" the speaker, by forcefully removing the bucking magnet.

Thanks squeak. Does the debucking magnet affect the sound of the speaker at all?

No,the shielding is for HT use

It's not a debucking magnet. It's a bucking magnet. Debucking is the act of removing the bucking magnet. If a speaker is debucked, it means the bucking magnet has been removed.

Can you use a bucking magnet to buck a debucking magnet, if the speaker is bucked??:naughty:

How much magnet would a bucking magnet buck if a bucking magnet could buck magnets

Does anyone know an easy way to remove the bucking magnet off of a Dayton RS 7" speaker?

Good luck and be careful. You can damage the speaker in the process. So just be warned that the process is not 100% safe.

Those are the steps to death:(



When I debucked my dayton, all I needed was a hammer and 5 minutes out of my time. :eyebrow: Bam Bam Bam, then it's done. lol

I don't see any advantage to debucking except decreasing the size of the driver.

That's the point of debucking for most people. You save a pretty good amount of depth without the shielding magnet.

would it be easy to buck a MT???

just curious

EDIT: Misread question


http://www.partsexpress.com/webpage.cfm?&Webpage_ID=3&DID=7&CAT_ID=41&ObjectGroup_ID=571&SO=2 - Would have to find some big enough to counteract the MT's magnet.

Though not really sure why you would want to run an MT in a home audio setup......

Which leads back to your question:


How much magnet would a bucking magnet buck if a bucking magnet could buck magnets
