The W6-1721 6" midbass features a long throw, underhung 1-1/2" voice coil driven by a massive 50 oz. ferrite magnet. A shorting ring on the polepiece is responsible for the speaker's extremely low levels of second and third order harmonic distortion. This impressive motor is coupled to an optimized paper cone with rubber surround, supported by a cast aluminum frame. The driver's naturally high and smooth upper frequency rolloff facilitates simplified crossover designs.

Specifications: Power handling: 50 watts RMS/100 watts max *VCdia: 1-1/2" *Impedance: 4 ohms *Re: 3.4 ohms *Frequency range: 40-5,000 Hz *Fs: 40 Hz *SPL: 88 dB 1W/1m *Vas: 1.04 cu. ft. *Qms: 3.58 *Qes: .49 *Qts: .43 *Xmax: 8 mm *Dimensions: A: 6.95", B: 5.8", C: 4.3".

Looks like a beast, reminds me of the RE XXX midbass.

wonder how well these would do in a 3 way setup

Could prob run 2-way with the FR they have... looks good for a 3-way too though.

C'mon, who goes by rated numbers? :)

power handling just seems lowLol...

QTS seems a little low for IB installs....might work fairly well though...

that FR graph looks amazing.


somehow i can not see this living up to that graph for $60each... if they made this in 8" i would by two right now. and a .44 QTS is just on the top end of IB ... i would not go over .45 - but .43 would be suited for an aperiodic enclosure as well... which would be ideal for a driver like this.

if it can play to 1.5khz and they make an 8 - ill get some.

the new mag is XBL^2 and will reach mechanical limits off ~250w rms in some cases, but get just as loud as the previous mags.

underhung means its voice coil is shorter.. similar to the coil design of XBL^2. doesn't mean its bad but on music, your amp rarely if ever puts out rated rms power, even at max volume

this looks like an outstanding driver by the specs.. i might just get a pair for myself.

As far as QTS values, you have it backwards. You want a HIGH QTS for a dipole configuration, otherwise the response drops off like a solid rock...

Why do you think the bandwagon PG RSDs have such great midbass? Look at their QTS :cool:

I hope these are good. I may be cutting up my floor to drop these in...a bit skeptical at $60 each though...

Cutting up... the.... FLOOR?

Oh you bet...gonna glass a pod right through the floor for em...drop one through the driver's side and one through the passenger's side. Should look nice mounted flush-esque

why would you want to give them more power if they can be just as loud with less?

Or not.Its been done before plenty of times in a dipole mid bass configuration with the woofer venting to the exterior of the car..

Should be sweet, post pics :)

After his install, req is recommending an AP install...so i may be slapping some FG membrane into there as well.
