PRV Audio Brazil - Neodymium Midrange Speakers

Recommended Posts

NeodyminumFamily_zpsa514c923.jpg

 

• Neodymium radial slug motors for extreme speaker control and sensitivity
• Full copper pole-piece sleeve for low distortion and inductance
• Durable cast aluminum frame

A bumped backplate, vented pole piece, vented magnet assembly, Kapton® former, and treated-cloth surround allow for high power handling, while protecting this driver from extreme transient power peaks.

I had a chance to play with a pair of the 6" version, and did a short review on them.

 

 

   This is going to be a mainly subjective review, as i do not have access to a mic to record frequency response in cabin.

The setup: part 1

1 driver per door, crossed at 80hz 12db/slope ---- 16khz 12db/slope
100watts Rms per driver at 4ohm

  • Surprising low range punch
  • Very full sounding output
  • Almost pronounced vocal output (but not in a bad way)
  • Good off axis response
  • Would be great as a oem location single driver replacement. ( shallow depth is a plus here)


    I found the driver to better suited to my personal tastes in the part 1 setup. It sounds like a high output coaxial driver. I listened to it on multiple styles of music from Country, Trance, House, Rap and even some Focal JMlab test music. These mids played it all with ease.

The setup :part 2

1 driver per door, crossed at 200hz 24db/slope ---- 12khz 12db/slope
250 watts Rms per driver at 4ohm
 

  • Lacking low end output (to be expected at the given crossover point)
  • Slight breakup on higher frequencies when crossed higher than 12khz
  • Huge jump in output compared to the low power part 1 setup
  • Would need to be paired with a dedicated midbass driver to fill in the 80-300hz range and a small tweeter to fill in the top end.
  • Impressive vocal range output, hard to believe the output from a driver this size.
  • At full volume it is a bit much for a closed cabin for the average person, and would easily keep up with a high output substage.


    In the part 2 setup, this driver would blend well with a dedicated midbass driver, and small tweeter. Its output was so impressive for its size that many of the people i let listen to it found it hard to believe such a small driver could have so much output. Almost too much output for a sealed cabin (some may like that though). This mid can definitely fill the gap of a horn driver, and sound better in a car cabin.


Overall:

    This driver has very impressive output for its size, and can fit in a ton of oem locations. It would be easy to do multiples in custom door panels as well with the flat sided cast baskets. A great option for someone looking to make the plunge into the pro audio style car audio setups. If giving it at rms or over (which it takes with no issues at all), it would need to be run in a 3 way setup to get the most output out of the setup. But on low power it has a huge range, and can definitely be used in a single driver setup fullrange. For the price, this driver has a lot going for it, enough that if you are on the fence about giving it a try, just do it. You will be very pleased that you did.

Thank you for the review, have you installed the speakers in your car yet ?

      PRV AUDIO Vocal Speakers....  
      This may not make sense initially, but a high-quality speaker will have less bandwidth than a lower quality speaker... (for the most part)
      Just like a 3- or 4-way system is always better than a 1- or 2-way system.  The narrower the bandwidth the speaker must play the cleaner it will sound.  This will also keep you from asking the speaker to play up to its upper and lower frequency limits which are where it starts to sound "forced" to play those frequencies
      Pro Audio speakers are nothing new to car audio, but I see consumers not really knowing how to properly use them and having some issues which is understandable.  These are totally different than your standard coaxial speaker

      If you look at the graph on the 6mr500ndy, which sounds amazing, you'll see that it can play from 90hz to 12,000hz... but if you narrow it down to what is plays "best" and more "naturally" it’s closer to 200hz to 10,000hz.   Yes, it can play down to 50hz but not efficiently and not as well as 200 and up. Very low volume that would be fine but in what we do with the speaker you will want to cross it over closer to 200-300hz

      I get a lot of PMs asking if this speaker will pick up where my subs leave off?   … around 60-80hz.  I say no but the specs say "yes”. 99-13k so that may be a little confusing if you don’t look at the graph and understand what information it has in it
      So, for someone interested in using this speaker as a voice speaker, which I HIGHLY recommend, you will also need a "midbass" speaker to go with it such as a 10mb800 or 10mb500 or 8mb450.     
      This leads me to another piece of information.  PRV model numbers have an "MR”, “MB", "SW" or "W" in between the size of the driver and wattage of the individual speaker. MR=midrange

      MB=midbass
      W=woofer 
      SW=subwoofer
      This is a general guideline for what the speaker is geared towards. That doesn’t mean an 8mb450 can’t be used for midrange or and 8mr400 can’t be used for midbass.  That is where the graph and interpretation of the graph comes into play
      There is a lot more that goes into designing your front stage or your "voice" speakers that one of these days I’ll try and have a more in depth write up.   The possibilities are endless...

      Hello, I have problem with choosing speakers (I'm just new in car audio), but I got 2 power amplifiers - CONCORD CA 2075 (300W),they are both 2 channel. One of them is bridged and connected to bass tube (raveland 400W). Second one will be connected to 4 speakers (2 x front 165mm, 2 x rear 130mm) , and I need to buy them, but I don't know how to compute how much Watts those speakers should have when i will connect them to this 300W power amplifier, which would have 2 speakers connected to + and - "left" and next 2 speakers for + and - "right". (You don't need to give me models of speakers cause idk if they will be available in my country, just give me how much watts they should have and I would really happy ;D)
      And my question is can i connect wires going out of radio (normally to speakers now they are going to power amplifier) and cinch wires both at the same time??? (just got both with this stuff and I don't especially know if it's right :P

      Ps. sorry for any mistakes caused by my english abilities :/
